Snickerdoodle Keto Cookie
Cooler days are finally here (Yay!! Got your boots ready??) - and you might have noticed an increase in your appetite.
This is normal as our body gets ready for winter, in the spirit of ‘stocking up’.
If you’re like me and are are trying keep that extra weight off, you want to think twice before succumbing to that 3pm sugary treat.

At Foodcraft we have soooo many low sugar options, because we know keeping your blood sugar in check is SO important when it comes to our health. And when I say "health" I mean both physical and mental health here. (Yes, sugar does affect our brain too. “Brain fog" anyone?)

If you are new to low sugar treats, please do try our delicious keto muffins or keto cakes. They’re just like the goodies you are used to (in a variety of delicious flavours)  and will help with those crazy sugar pastry cravings!   (Ladies, you know that day I'm talking about right?)
Now, if you don't have a stock of low sugar snack for those craving emergency, don’t worry! I’m sharing one of my favourite low sugar cookie recipes right here!

Why is this one of my favorites? Coz its so darn easy! We all know that when we have that sugar craving - we don’t have the patience for a complicated ingredient list or long bake time! We want the treat now!

I promise, this 9 ingredient , 12 min bake, 20min start to finish cookie recipes will save your blood sugar and your body will thank you for it!

What you'll need in your pantry for a low sugar diet:
If you haven't yet, I want you to get 'low carb ready' by getting some essentials in your pantry.
Here are the 3 basic ingredients that I always make sure I have in stock.
1. Almond flour (make sure you have the “Fine” milled flour. Coarse is not good for baking) 

2. Natural Low Carb Sweeteners (I like to use, monkfruit, stevia and a combination of sugar alcohols. DO NOT use artificial sweeteners like Aspartame, Sucralose, Acesulfame K., Saccharin. They do more harm than good and you might as well have real sugar if you are going to eat this.) 

3. Good Quality Eggs (Omega3, brain food yay!)
