Low Carb Cookie Butter

Keto Recipes > Keto Dessert Recipes

If you’ve never had cookie butter, then you really missed out! Think about grabbing a spoonful of smooth peanut butter out of the jar, but it’s got a Fall-like cinnamon and ginger cookie taste. Seriously delicious and perfect for this time of the year.

I’d say dip stuff in it, but really…we all know that’s not going to happen. Go ahead and grab your spoon, dip, and lick it off – a great way to end a meal. If that’s not your thing, it really goes great on freshly made waffles in the morning. You can pretty much put it on anything that’s slightly sweet to get an awesome punch of delicious flavor.


I chose to use both macadamia nuts and cashews for this one. Cashews are pretty carby, while macadamias are extremely fatty – both give the flavor you want to make an awesome cookie butter base. The oils in the nuts are able to really come out and help give a rich and smooth texture. Then you add browned butter caramel into it and it comes alive. All of the spices play off of eachother and brings a whole new dimension. Salt just intensifies the sweetness and pushes it over the edge on the taste buds.

By the way, you can flavor this however you want to. Pull back on the spices and let the cinnamon sing for a more Snickerdoodle type of cookie butter, add a slight bit more of the ginger for a Biscoff style cookie butter, or mix and match your own flavors to get the taste you’re craving! I thought this was the perfect combination for me for what I wanted to do. You can always add more of a certain spice afterwards too.

P.S. Cardamom would be a great addition to this, as it plays off of the ginger (Cardamom comes from the ginger family). Feel free to add some of that in there, too.
