Keto Cream Cheese Caramelized Sea Salt Hazelnut Cookies

I’m going to be very honest, we just happened to accidentally make these cookies!  We had about 5 batches going at once, there was a miscom between us and batches got mixed, and out came this recipe of Cream Cheese Caramelized Sea Salt Hazelnut Cookies!  We thought it was amazing so we went ahead and published it!   On a completely separate note and since we are on the subject of honesty, I wanted to let our visitors in on something.  One of the most common statements I read about food blogs is, ‘why do they talk so much about how the recipe came about ya-da ya-da and not just get straight to the recipe’?  I can relate because before we started LCA, I was one of those people thinking the same thing.  Now being on the other side of things, I can explain to you why.  For your recipes to be found on google or any other search engine, there are certain ‘rules’ you have to follow.  And one of those ‘rules’ happen to be having a certain amount of words per post.  If we just jumped straight into the recipe, we probably would be breaking that ‘rule’ and our recipes would probably never show on google.  So next time you are browsing our website or someone else’ food website, keep that in mind!

These cookies come out to ~1.5g net carbs per cookie, very low-carb/keto friendly for a dessert! The taste for these, like most of the caramelized butter cookies, come on at mid palate.  It is initially semi-sweet and then explodes with nutty flavors from the butter and hazelnuts with creamy shortbread type finish.

For this one, you will need Almond Flour, Swerve/Monkfruit and Roasted Hazelnuts as the special ingredients, which can be purchased on Amazon or a local specialty supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!

4) In the meantime, use a food processor and pulse roasted hazelnuts until coarsely chopped and set aside.  If you don’t have a food processor, you can place the nuts into a plastic bag and use rubber mallet to break into chunks.

5) In a large mixing bowl to combine Almond Flour, Swerve/Monkfruit, sea salt, chopped roasted hazelnut, cream cheese, vanilla extract and browned butter. Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer. Note – make sure browned butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will ‘cook’ the batter.
