Easy keto cookies with chocolate frosting recipe (made with Astragalus Root!)

You are gonna love this recipe for easy keto cookies. And don’t even get us started on the magic of the keto chocolate frosting recipe. It’s got a super special ingredient.

We know this recipe is a winning recipe because we made it on Saturday, they’re all gone by Sunday and we’re ready to make another batch on Monday. Oooops.

So yes, we just know you’re gonna love them!

You’ll love the cookies because the recipe is ridiculously easy to make. Like add everything to a bowl and mix kinda easy. They were also easy to roll (this is important, not too sticky, not too crumbly!). And they turned out perfect first batch. Boom.

But we had to test again (haha). 

Ok, enough talk about the epicness of the keto cookies, let’s chat chocolate frosting.

And yes, of course, the cookies are super yum without the frosting but helllooooo frosting makes everything better. 

This keto chocolate frosting is extra special because we added Astragalus Root. One of the most important herbal tonics in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Our faves from Teelixir say that Astragalus Root is known as The Great Protector for its ability to function as an immune stimulator that supports and enhances the body’s defence system.

We’ve been testing Astragalus Root in all the things, from smoothies, to sprinkling on our dinners, to mixing with coconut milk and adding to raw treats (our preference is obviously the keto chocolate frosting!).

Although it’s best to test supplements out for at least 30 days to feel the benefit, we reckon we feel way more energised in just one week! 

It’s the perfect supplement to add to your diet. Right now we are in the middle of winter in Australia, a time when so many people around us are getting colds and coughs and Winter just feels a little low vibe. Bring on this immunity boosting and energising supp!

Here are some benefits of Astragalus we found during our research… (ummm yes please to all of these!):

  • Boosts your immune system, it has been seen to fight and prevent bacterial and viral infections. 
  • Improve your heart function by helping to prevent plaque buildup in arteries and the narrowing of vessel walls (um wow).
  • Boosts energy, especially those with chronic fatigue (yes please… we want all the energy!).
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory (the root of most disease!). 
  • Improved seasonal allergy symptoms, like runny noses and itchy eyes. 
  • Helps fight free radical damage and prevents oxidative stress (the main cause of disease and aging).
  • The positive impact on the immune system, and improvement on brain function when taking Astragalus means it has a positive impact on lifespan!
  • Aids in wound healing and scarring.
  • Clears the lungs of mucus build up and inflammation (it has been used in cases of Chronic Asthma with positive affects!).

So you see… we now want to add Astragalus Root to everything!
