When you are committed to a low carb diet, which could be by choice or health reasons such as Type 1 Diabetes, finding really good low carb treats can seem impossible. Low carb treats don’t usually use regular flours which means that substituting your favourite treats with coconut or almond flour could turn out to be a huge disaster as these flours simply do not work the same as wheat flour. Coconut flour for instance is extremely absorbent so you have to adjust the amount of coconut flour as well as the amounts of liquids. This takes a lot of trial and error which can be costly. Almond flour is a little easier to substitute but with that being said, still not the same. My recommendation to you is work with tried and tested recipes first then venture into the unknown.
These low carb paleo treats are so delicious and easy to make. I used almond butter in these but you can use any nut butter you wish. They would also be delicious with walnut or pecan chunks added. You could make these completely dairy free/vegan by adding an egg substitute but that could change the consistency of the batter and the results may not be that great. Worth a try though!
