How do I make keto vanilla wafer cookies?

First, preheat oven to 350º F and mix all ingredients in a large bowl. No need for an electric mixer, a whisk will do!

Note: the texture of the cookie dough will not be as firm as regular cookie dough and that’s ok 🙂

Place teaspoon-size balls of dough onto a buttered, non-stick baking sheet.

Next, press down on the balls of dough with your index and middle finger. Moisten your fingers if they stick to the dough too much.

Finally, bake the cookies for approximately 15-17 minutes.
