Keto Buckeye Cookies

Keto Recipes > Dessert

Oof, it’s been a while since I’ve written a recipe! My apologies guys – I’ve been doing a lot of work on the next cookbook. It should be out in a few more weeks, so keep an eye out (spoiler alert, tons of fusion recipes)!

So, the last week I made some inside out buckeye cookies (converted from a non-keto recipe) at the request of on the the members in the Ketogenic Living Facebook group. She said if I could make them, she’d love me forever, so here’s me ode to getting loved forever.

These things are really…freaking…good. No kidding, They just melt in your mouth. Now, I do realize that they’re a bit carb heavy, but 2 of them should fill you up for a snack or a dessert. They’re high in fats, and they’ve only got a bit of protein so they’re almost the perfect keto snack. Chocolate, peanut butter, vanilla come together for a luscious and decadent taste that you won’t want to give up!

Yields 20 Buckeye Cookies
