Sugar Free Desserts: Salted Chocolate Chip Nut Butter Cookies

Low Carb Ice Cream Recipe

What I see often is that some of the most stressed outpatients are the ones who stay away from salt. They eat the ketogenic diet that contains keto desserts and all these are sugar-free desserts and that’s good. It’s a good start. They love sugar free ice cream – and who wouldn’t since it won’t cause diabetes or sugar rushes. It’s a low carb ice cream.

The fact is that salt is essential for the body. Yes, you’ll find it in meats and dairy products and processed foods, but it may not be enough for you if you’re on a ketogenic diet. You may need to salt your foods, and when you do, your adrenal gland is happier for doing it. Salt contains sodium, which is an electrolyte and electrolytes are important for the body. You’ll die without them.

Yes, many people also don’t get enough potassium. You’ll hear me talking about that on my programs. The potassium comes in the diet by eating large quantities of vegetables.

So don’t be afraid of adding a little bit of salt to your sugar free desserts such as this salted chocolate chip nut butter cookie recipe or even your sugar free ice cream. The salt actually brings out the flavor of the chocolate much better!

Funny Ice Cream Facts

This cookie recipe goes really well with sugar-free ice cream and low carb ice cream.

  1. Ben and Jerry’s often retires ice cream flavors that aren’t popular. When they do, the flavors go into an actual physical graveyard. I wonder if they have a Paleo desserts section or keto desserts section in the graveyard!
  1. If an ice cream sundae was 12 foot tall, it would make about 70,000 people happy to eat a sundae of their own. I hope the next 12 foot sundae is among the sugar free desserts we can enjoy.
