Yummy yum-yum! I’m gonna share with you a keto chocolate chip recipe that, when you eat your chocolate chip cookie, several hours later you’re gonna test your ketones and you’ll see that this cookie helps to bring them up. It’s because of the special ingredients that are in it and I want to show you the simple steps and all of the ingredients that you’re going to need to make it happen. So we’ve got the oven preheating and we’re ready to go with our almond and our coconut flour. So you’re going to use a quarter of a cup of almond flour. You may have heard me say this before: you can change these ratios. It depends on how fat adapted your body is, so a lot of times I’m going to do 3/4 of a cup of coconut, because I want the saturated fats, and just a quarter cup of almond. So we’re gonna add 3/4 of a teaspoon of Himalayan salt… two… three… getting all of those good minerals. Then you’re going to add 3/4 of a teaspoon of the cinnamon and the cinnamon is great to also help your body fat burn.
Then you’re going to add half of a teaspoon of the baking soda — here’s half your teaspoon of baking soda right in here — and you’re gonna add, sort of to your taste, monk fruit. So this is a monk fruit sweetener and we’ve got actually a quarter of a cup here but you can go way down and that it’s just going to depend on you so now we have all the dry ingredients in our food processor and we’re going to pulse it a couple times just make sure it blends nicely. Okay, that was easy! So now we’re gonna add in — this is 1/4 of a cup of grass-fed butter — I’m gonna add that right in. We’re gonna add 2 tablespoons of our Simply Good Fats Organic Coconut Oil. I love getting all of these good saturated fats. There’s a big difference in how our body utilizes different types of fats; whenever you’re in a high fat ketogenic lifestyle, when you’re looking to really utilize all of the ketone bodies that you have, and the best way to get there is with the MCT oil.
So we add a quarter of a cup of MCT oil. Now here’s the thing with MCTS: when you add these to the recipe they’re gonna add a satiating benefit. Did you know that MCTs really help to curb cravings? They help to support all of our hormonal system but especially hormones that relate to cravings like leptin and what you’ll find as you ingest the MCTS — I get them into my diet as many times a day as possible — so here you’re getting them in with your chocolate chip cookies, which is awesome. I take all of my salad dressings and I make them half MCT, I add it to the nut butters that my children eat so they’re getting several tablespoons of MCT every day, and the reason I’m so completely in love with MCT — actually quite obsessed with it, so much so that I had to go and source it myself and put it into our own brand — but the reason I got so excited about it is because what it does is it bypasses the digestive system — it goes right to the liver — and it allows your body to make the precious ketones.
And so, when you take a tablespoon of MCT, within 4 hours you’re producing twice as many ketone bodies and ketone bodies are the fuel that your brain loves, that your heart loves, that allow you to burn body fat as fuel so you’re getting almost like an oxymoron here when it comes to chocolate chip cookies you’re getting fat-burning, ketone-building chocolate-chip cookies. So now we’re going to go to the next phase and blend up the ingredients. Great, that was so easy and fast. And you think this whole recipe is gonna take you about ten minutes to make and then it’s gonna go right in the oven. You’re gonna be adding two eggs; again, you’re getting the good fats. So many people have thought over the years that the egg white was really what we wanted, but now we know better.
We now know there’s so much value into the egg yolks. Now these are keto-friendly dark chocolate unsweetened. You’re gonna add 1/2 a cup of those, and you can add more or less it just depends on you, and now you’re gonna add half a teaspoon of vanilla. And, we’re gonna pulse it a couple more times and we’ll be ready to go. We’re ready to start placing our delicious cookie dough right on our parchment paper. I hope this recipe inspires you as much as it’s inspired me and, once you start making it, I can’t wait to get the comments and the thoughts, the different versions of this. Are you ready? Our cookies are going in the oven 350. We’re gonna cook them for 10 minutes, there we go, oh I can’t wait! *Whispers* Can I eat the batter? Our cookies are ready to go! Okay, seriously guys, how fast was that? I want to share with you so much information about the power of MCT for your body, for your health, for the longevity of your health, for your fat burning, for all the good energy the MCT can give you while reducing your cravings.

MCT Chocolate Chip Fat Cookie Recipe: https://www.naomiwhittel.com/can-mct-oil-increase-your-ketones/
Your favorite chocolate chip cookies don’t have to be one of your worst guilty pleasures any longer. My delicious, keto-friendly cookies are loaded with good fats from real grass-fed butter and coconut oil, as well as MCT oils. MCT oil has so many benefits and is proving to be more than just any old fat. It has the ability to provide you with fast-acting energy that benefits your cellular and metabolic function as well as give you a nice jolt of mental clarity, not to mention even energy levels throughout the day. I love the flavor of these delicious treats because they taste just like chocolate chip cookies but with high-quality fats and zero sugars. Eat one for a snack, a healthy dessert or grab a couple for a quick fat-fueled breakfast!
Keto connoisseur Dominic D’Agostino first introduced me to this satiating treat. When I sat down to have dinner with him one night, I knew I would be getting a lot of interesting and thoughtful conversation, but I hadn’t the faintest clue I would taste a real cookie, made with real ingredients, that was really, really yummy and also really good for me too. I had to recreate the experience, so I played around until I came up with these delicious (and good for you too!) cookies.
Whether you take MCT oil by the spoonful for quick, reliable energy; mix it into smoothies, shakes, sauces, teas or coffee; or bake it into a delicious fat-friendly cookie for a less intense, longer duration spike in ketone production, one thing is clear: you certainly won’t raise your cholesterol doing so nor will you block metabolic function! At my house, food is fuel, but food is also fun! I love putting smiles on my kids’ faces when I serve them this breakfast cookie as a healthy, yet fun treat!
You should always consume a high-quality and organic MCT oil. An MCT oil grown and processed conventionally could have traces of toxins, mold or heavy metals due to chemical extraction or lack of safety testing… about 80% of MCT oils are conventionally grown. If you don’t know where your MCT oil is sourced, manufactured, and how it is processed, you may be introducing toxins into your system that rob your body of health instead of creating it. You want to look for pure, cold-pressed, and non-GMO coconut-based oil that is extracted and purified with enzymes, not harsh chemicals.
