Keto Trash Cookies Recipe

My brand new Keto Trash Cookies Recipe is going to be all the rage when your friends and family try these! This recipe is RIDICULOUS!!! I mean that in such a good way.

I know what you’re thinking… What good cookie recipe is called trash?! I’m not even kidding you… I’ve seen these types of recipes over the years, being called “Trash or Garbage”.

Food Network even has a version called a “Compost Cookie”. Ya, for real. I actually saw these types of cookies and have made them, several years back. I’ve always been a sucker for the salty and sweet combo type recipes. I have successfully made sweets with potato chips, pretzels, popcorn, etc etc. Since starting Keto/Low Carb, I’ve even played around with making sweets from pork rinds. Believe it!!

This type of cookie/sweet has been around for quite some time. It reminds me of recipes that are “everything but the kitchen sink… throw together’s for get-togethers”, something along those lines. But THIS. Whoever invented the original trash cookie, had to have been under a serious case of the munchies, because they are outrageously good. Now, not being able to have chips and pretzels and so on- I decided I need to transform these into a wonderful Keto/Low Carb treat! This little bite of not-too-sweet and salty, nice firm crust, but soft and cakey oooohh…. Ok, I’ll stop.

You just have to try these out, to know the absolute truth about how great these cookies are. My husband and daughter were SUPER impressed with how they turned out.

Now, I must say… my 8-year-old daughter is my toughest critic. She is oh-so skeptical about my keto creations and will give me a definite NO if she doesn’t like it (according to her young refined pallet). She made it official, by giving me a 9 out of 10 stars. Momma is very proud of that accomplishment.

Test them out, give them a go. I am very pleased with the consistency, texture, and durability of this recipe. They held together, didn’t crumble apart or turn to brick. Even bagging the leftovers (that I practically had to hide from them last night!! haha), they were still soft and chewy today. I think this is ABSOLUTELY going to be a keeper in my books and the Fam is already itchin’ for me to make another batch. Good thing I stashed the rest of the macadamia nuts and pistachios last night, or I’d be off to the store again.

Notes:

I really like to use a cookie scoop so that all of my cookies are the exact same size. It’s not required but it’s extremely helpful.

Xanthan Gum is optional, but I added it to ensure the cookies held together nicely.

Nutrition per serving will vary depending on how many dough balls you make.  I made 16 cookies from this recipe.

  1. Looks fantastic! What size were ur cookies. In other words how many inches diameter? I’m thinking of adding coconut(maybe toasted) for one of the nuts. Thanx , Love ur recipes

    1. I actually measured the dough balls at about 40g, then pressed them down slightly.. I would estimate about 2 inches, baked.

    1. This is just the combination I liked for sweetness. You could use any sweetener that your taste buds like! Or even cut back on it a bit if you think it would be too sweet. I hope that helps!

    1. Honestly, I can only image they would freeze well… Ours haven’t lasted long enough to freeze any! They are eaten pretty quickly in my house.

  2. Just wondering how you went from 13 carbs to 2. I know you subtract fiber. Did you subtract the sugar free sweeteners too? Thanks. These look really good.

  3. 5 stars
    These sound fabulous! I am word by I don’t like macadamia nut. What other nut would pair will with these? I do like most others.
    Thanks,

  4. Just wondering….I am new to KETO and unsure how you ended up with your net carb count. I was under the impression that net carbs were total carbs – fiber. That would be 13 – 3 = 10 net carbs per cookie.

    Am I figuring this out incorrectly???
    Thanks

      1. Kris, I’m with littleleftie. 13 grams of carb minus 3 grams fiber is 10 net carbs. Where do sugar alcohols come in? Saying that they’re not counted may be accurate and appropriate but for those of us who are just learning it would be helpful to see the sugar alcohols included in the macros. Can you clarify this please? Thanks!!!

  5. I want to try these but your nutrition value above for one cookie, states 13 carbs and 3 fiber; which equals 10 Net Carbs for one cookie Am I missing something because how did you come up with 2 Net Carbs then?? Thanks

    Made them, followed instructions exact (which I rarely do) and they were amazing. In my keeper list (pinterest). Thanks for sharing. Great recipe. Perfect

  7. 5 stars
    I use whole or chopped salted peanuts and walnuts or hemp heart with crushed 90% chocolate bar from walmart (sam’s brand) my favorite sweet salty treat

  8. 5 stars
    I made these today. They are delicious. I have had trouble making cookies with almond flour that I like, I love these.

  9. I am honestly blown away by these comments! Does anyone read the comments before posting a question? How many times does she have to tell you how she reached the amount of net carbs? Poor girl, what a pain to keep answering the same questions over and over. At any rate, looking forward to making this recipe, thanks!
