Notes

  • All ovens run different. I recommend putting them on the bottom rack just so the tops don’t burn. 
  • Sub peanut butter for almond butter if desired. They will not be considered Paleo then.
  • Sub coconut sugar for Monk Fruit if not following strict keto.
  • I love Lily’s chocolate chips for Keto
  • For Paleo, use Hu dark chocolate.
  • Nutrition is calculated using Lily’s Chocolate Chips, almond butter and monk fruit sweetener.
