Egg free keto cookies! Yes, it’s possible. I actually have two other recipes on the blog! My Hazelnut Short Bread and my Egg Free Chewy Peppermint Chip Cookies, however, these Egg Free Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies are super easy to make. No crazy ingredients and they’re dairy free and nut free too! Modeled after my Famous Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies this recipe turns out EPIC. They have a slightly nutty flavor to them and almost remind me of oatmeal cookies, but with chocolate chips, not raisins, because that is blasphemous.
As you can tell by the many recipes I linked in just the first paragraph, I love cookies. They’re my go-to treat. When I can make a recipe that tastes amazing and feels amazing to eat, I call that a win-win. So this cookie is allergen friendly! But the real question here, and really, the big question with any keto recipe… WHAT DID I USE TO SWEETEN THEM?
I tried a new product that came in My Keto Box, which I’m also just trying out. It seemed interesting. Three ingredients: vegetable glycerin, monk fruit, natural flavors. I really liked how this keto sweetener performed in these egg free keto cookies!
Decent, and vague, so I hit the interwebs to do some digging.
The Scoop On Zero Syrup
A mix of vegetable glycerin and monk fruit. No carbs, no fat, no protein but not non-caloric, which I like. 59 calories per tbsp. This recips uses 2 tbsp.
The actual product page doesn’t give any details about the actual vegetable glycerin used. Vegetable glycerin is sugar alcohol made from vegetable-based fats, usually soy, coconut or palm oil. Super stoked that corn wasn’t an option, but not thrilled that soy could be an option.
While the actual Zero Syrup page had no info on the glycerin used, the same company makes and sells vegetable glycerin, which is obviously what they use to make this product. So I found this GMO statement, which doesn’t say GMO-free, but says that as far as they know, no GMO products are used. Then I found this Allergen statement which says that no soy is present.
I’ve deduced that they must use either coconut or palm oil glycerin. The natural flavors are still questionable, but I don’t think any of these sweeteners are perfect. I am going to contact the company to get more details, but for now, I’m happy with this product and will definitely use it to make these egg free keto cookies again.
If you can’t do sugar alcohols at all, Choc-Zero has a Vegetable Fiber and Monk Fruit syrup that you can get here, that has zero sugar alcohols.
Substitutions for these Egg Free Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you can’t do flax egg, use one large egg, whisk until frothy before adding the other ingredients.
If you can’t do tahini, use sun butter, almond butter or even peanut butter!
If you can’t do keto sweeteners use honey or maple syrup.
If you can’t do coconut flour, you can use 1 cup fine ground almond meal.
If you can’t do ghee, use coconut oil, tallow, lard or bacon fat.
I think that covers ALL THE THINGS. Now it’s time to get your egg-free keto cookie party started!
