Today’s topic: COOKIES! 🙂 You’ll like these cookies because they’re low carb, gluten free, don’t contain malitol or upset your stomach, they’re keto friendly and diabetic friendly, and they come from two different companies that are really cool…
I got them both in Keto Krate boxes, by the way. It’s a great service where you get to try 6-9 full sized low carb products every month, which is a great way to mix things up!
I’ve had the opportunity to try some GREAT low carb foods that way that I never would have found on my own. And having new things to add in to my low carb diet every month keeps things from getting boring. 🙂
And let’s be honest… having LOW CARB options for desserts & sweets is what keeps us on track when that sweet tooth hits, right?;)
Keto Kookies vs Good Dee’s Low Carb Cookie Mixes
You make your own low carb cookies, buy low carb cookies, or get low carb cookie mix. But which are best, and what are the differences?
These two are both LCHF, gluten free, diabetic friendly, and come from great companies… with a few differences you should know about.
I’ll say upfront that I’m a big fan of both. I originally discovered Good Dee’s mixes in the August Keto Krate Box and I got to try Keto Kookies when they came in the – wait, I think I met them on Instagram actually. 🙂 Oops!
The low carb Snickerdoodle cookie is a new product from both companies. I tried both of their original Chocolate Chip cookies first, and loved them! I’m patiently waiting for them both to come out with Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies now.:)
The Keto Kookies are pre-made and pre-packaged of course, but otherwise they are VERY similar to Dee’s in both flavor and texture…
No Malitol, No Tummy Upset
They both use erythritol, which is ideal – because it doesn’t upset your stomach like most sugar substitutes. And it tingles on your tongue a little. 😉
Similar Taste & Texture, Except…
Both have a true cookie texture and they taste very similar, both the chocolate chip and snickerdoodle cookies. I would say that the Keto Kookie is more crumbly and much softer, but that’s because I baked my batch of Good Dee’s cookies a little crisp – because I like them that way:

Here’s the Chocolate Chip Keto Kookie in comparison:
Grab & Go vs Fresh Baked
I love the Keto Kookies for convenience (especially since I don’t cook much – AT ALL, lol). They’re easy to just grab & go, or toss in with your lunch or whatever.
With Good Dee’s mixes you can add your own additional ingredients though, like walnuts or pecans. 😉 They way I made my low carb brownies with her mix was amazing!! See my Low Carb Brownies for example ~ YUM! 🙂
Obviously with Good Dee’s mixes you can enjoy that warm, fresh baked yumminess. You can always warm up the Keto Kookies too though, and pretend you baked them.:) Which sounds like something *I* would do!
Here’s the Keto Kookie new Snickerdoodle cookie:

I love them both!
Hopefully these details and this comparison proves helpful if you were torn on which low carb cookies to try! I love them both. 🙂 For different reasons of course.
I love Good Dee’s mixes because I can get creative with them and add my own ingredients. Or you could use the Snickerdoodle cookie mix to make a “dessert crust” for a low carb pie or decadent low carb dessert.
They’re not cheap – that’s true. That’s the most common feedback I’ve heard so far on both of these products. That’s what I love most about Keto Krate though – getting to try a big variety of full sized products every month for one low rate. Then I can order more of what I love, and they always include coupons & discounts for that.
You can also make your own low carb cookies of course. There are tons of recipes online, on Pinterest, and I even have a low carb cookie recipe here. That recipe is VERY versatile, and you can sweeten to taste of course. So there are lots of options…
I would love to hear your thoughts if you have tried either or both – or which one you think you would prefer, and why!
They’re both GREAT products. I LOVE to see companies catering to the keto community and low carb lifestyle. They are also companies run by GOOD people. I’ve had the opportunity to get to know the owners behind both companies, and talk to them often via email & instagram.
Oh – and I lose weight EVERY week that I make Good Dee’s brownies like this. 🙂
