When Shaun and his wife Jodie heard about the Keto Diet and the great results people were getting, they decided to give it a try. Both lost weight quickly and felt better than they had in many years. The Keto diet is a diet that is high in fat and low in carbohydrates, which puts the body in a state of Ketosis, which causes the body to burn fat instead of the easier-to-burn carbs. Keto Diet doesn’t allow for sugar, and most pastries are high in carbs. When Shaun and Jodie realized the limitation on treats, they started looking for options that could help them get their sweet fix. There weren’t many. Shaun has a fondness for his wife’s sugar cookies and began wondering if he could find a way to make them “Keto friendly.”
They started baking in 2016 and trying out recipes. They perfected several recipes by 2018 and launched TheKetoCookie.com. There are other benefits to this cookie, as diabetics and those with blood sugar issues can enjoy them as well. They currently have eight recipes; each flavor contains between 150-190 calories, and they are only 1-4 grams of net carbs! Flavors include the following: Apes over Chocolate, Classic Snickerdoodle, Peanut Butter Passion, Frosted Sugar? Cookie, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Traditional Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Macadaminuts, and Lemonicious. The idea that you can have a sweet treat, despite being on a very low sugar diet, is very appealing.
Shaun and Jodie live in Syracuse and bake the cookies currently at Chris’ Café, where you can also pick up your order to avoid shipping. Cookies are baked fresh each week and shipped weekly. They are currently working on a full-time commercial bakery on their property as the company grows and develops more flavors and eventually additional products. As Shaun says, they deliver smiles! Give the Keto Cookie a try.
