Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

I realized Keto diet is getting really popular these days. Both my brothers were on this diet to lose weight and indeed they are super fit and slim these days. It wasn’t easy to recreate Keto cookies (as requested by my brother), as sugar and flour are the main ingredients to give cookie that crunchy texture we all love. But, I managed to do so after trying so many revisions.

In today’s article, I am going to share with you guys my Keto Almond Butter Cookie recipe. They are super easy to make just like a basic butter cookie recipe but a total delightful to eat. Buttery, nutty and also crunchy, this is one cookie that everyone (Keto, non-keto) would love. Who cares if it is sugar-free, gluten-free? It is guilt-free for sure!

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

 For my sweetener, I have used my trusty natural sweetener from Gavia. Gavia is a natural sweetener made from Stevia plant and Erythritol. While I’m sure most of you guys would know what is Stevia, Erythritol is also naturally found in foods like fruits, vegetables, cheese and yoghurt through the process of fermentation as the by-product of sugar. Hence, Gavia is an all-natural, zero-calorie, zero glycemic index sweetener which works great for baking and cooking. I actually teamed up with the Gavia team and they will be using my recipe to sell these Keto Almond Butter Cookies during Chinese New Year 2020! For a limited time and pre-orders only.

First Gavia Booth @ SUTD 2016

It was my first Gavia booth. Nevertheless, everything went well. I’m happy that the response turned out well and everything was sold out at the end of the event.

Gavia Muffins

Lemon Blueberry Muffins, Banana Chocolate Muffins, and Orange Cranberry Almond Muffins. These are some of my favorite sugar-free recipes. A lovely lady bought a Lemon Blueberry Muffins to try and instantly love it! She ordered 40 muffins in one goal. 

To receive such support from people like her, I really appreciate it. 

Apple Cakes

I’m really happy that I could finally use some of my cake stands.

Honestly, it was hard work, I didn’t expect working to be so hard at all. During that period, I actually did not get to sleep well at all. Other than juggling my usual errands, I had to pick up extra ingredients for the booth, transport stuff, mass baking, prepare packagings, and cleaning up here and there.

I had to end my end around 3 AM and get up at 6 AM to prepare to get ready to the event venue.  The event started at 8 AM and all the way till 6 PM. Which I have to pack and clean up afterward. There will be always be walking by asking for more information etc, I recalled that I did not get have my lunch all the way until 4 PM. I got home around 8 PM, showered and rest. Then get ready for the following day till 3 AM again. 

Luckily, it was only a 2-day event. Yet, I am happy that I participated because more people can know about Gavia and I can gain experience from it. Not only that, I met many new friends!
