MCT Chocolate Chip Fat Cookie Recipe: https://www.naomiwhittel.com/can-mct-oil-increase-your-ketones/?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=June%203
Your favorite chocolate chip cookies don’t have to be one of your worst guilty pleasures any longer. My delicious, keto-friendly cookies are loaded with good fats from real grass-fed butter and coconut oil, as well as MCT oils. MCT oil has so many benefits and is proving to be more than just any old fat. It has the ability to provide you with fast-acting energy that benefits your cellular and metabolic function as well as give you a nice jolt of mental clarity, not to mention even energy levels throughout the day. I love the flavor of these delicious treats because they taste just like chocolate chip cookies but with high-quality fats and zero sugars. Eat one for a snack, a healthy dessert or grab a couple for a quick fat-fueled breakfast!
Keto connoisseur Dominic D’Agostino first introduced me to this satiating treat. When I sat down to have dinner with him one night, I knew I would be getting a lot of interesting and thoughtful conversation, but I hadn’t the faintest clue I would taste a real cookie, made with real ingredients, that was really, really yummy and also really good for me too. I had to recreate the experience, so I played around until I came up with these delicious (and good for you too!) cookies.
Whether you take MCT oil by the spoonful for quick, reliable energy; mix it into smoothies, shakes, sauces, teas or coffee; or bake it into a delicious fat-friendly cookie for a less intense, longer duration spike in ketone production, one thing is clear: you certainly won’t raise your cholesterol doing so nor will you block metabolic function! At my house, food is fuel, but food is also fun! I love putting smiles on my kids’ faces when I serve them this breakfast cookie as a healthy, yet fun treat!
You should always consume a high-quality and organic MCT oil. An MCT oil grown and processed conventionally could have traces of toxins, mold or heavy metals due to chemical extraction or lack of safety testing… about 80% of MCT oils are conventionally grown. If you don’t know where your MCT oil is sourced, manufactured, and how it is processed, you may be introducing toxins into your system that rob your body of health instead of creating it. You want to look for pure, cold-pressed, and non-GMO coconut-based oil that is extracted and purified with enzymes, not harsh chemicals.
