What are kitchen sink cookies?
Kitchen Sink Cookies get their name from the phrase “everything but the kitchen sink.” These cookies are packed with salty and sweet ingredients… In this case, I used sugar-free butterscotch chips and dark chocolate chips as well as pecans and walnuts. You could easily bulk these up more with keto-friendly pretzel sticks, even homemade keto toffee bits if you wanted.
Ingredients Kitchen Sink Cookies
- Almond Flour: I do not suggest any substitutions. This recipe was formulated for super fine almond flour only.
- Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Salt: You need all three to make the perfect chewy cookie.
- Butter: cold butter is needed to create the right consistency.
- Golden Monkfruit: a keto-friendly sweetener perfect in these cookies
- Vanilla extract
- Egg: size large
- Lily’s Butterscotch chips
- Lily’s dark chocolate chips
- Nuts: I used a mixture of pecans and walnuts.
Tips for Sugar Free Butterscotch Chips
Lily’s Butterscotch chips melt very differently than regular or sugar free chocolate chips. If you find the butterscotch is is melting away from the cookie as they cook simply use a silicone spatula to push the butterscotch towards the cookie. This will create those perfect caramelized, almost crispy, crunchy edges.
