Easy and Delicious Low Carb Almond Cookies – Keto Cookies
Welcome all! Papa G here. Today I present
low carbohydrate almond cookies. This is a very
easy recipe to make when that Cookie
Monster in all of us comes a-knockin’.
With under one and a half carbohydrates per
cookie, you’ll be able to stay low carbohydrate
while enjoying family gatherings,
holidays, or when you just want a sweet
little afternoon snack – perfect with a
cup of coffee or hot tea. Let’s get started.
Begin by pouring eight tablespoons of melted,
unsalted butter into a large mixing bowl.
Add a granulated sugar substitute equal
to one cup of regular sugar. Mix to combine.
Add a lightly beaten egg and mix
Now we’ll add just a bit of salt and a
little almond extract. Give another mix
to combine. Our final ingredient is
almond flour. We’ll be using three cups total –
but only adding at 1 cup at a time. This
will help to ensure we don’t have any
dry clumps in the finished product and
makes it a lot easier to mix. After we’ve
roughly mixed in the last cup of flour,
finish, using our hands to mix and blend.
Work the dough until no more dry flour
is visible. Grab about a tablespoon of
the cookie dough and roll it with your
hands to form a small ball; about three
quarters of an inch in size. Continue
until all the dough is rolled. I finished
with 26 cookies, but depending on the
size of the dough balls, you may have a
little more or less. Place the cookies on
a baking sheet lined with parchment
paper, being careful not to overcrowd.
With your hands and fingers, gently press
down on each dough ball and form a round
cookie. To give our cookies a nice little
touch, press a thinly sliced almond to
the center of each cookie.
Brush the tops with a thin coating of
egg white. And for our final touch,
sprinkle a small amount of granulated
sugar substitute to the tops. Place the
cookies in the middle of a preheated 325°F oven for 25 minutes or until
nicely golden. When they’re done, remove
from the oven and place on a rack to
cool. These cookies have the perfect
texture and taste – perfect for dunking!
There you have it folks! My low carbohydrate
almond cookies. Easy to prepare and
delicious to eat – by themselves or
enjoy with a nice hot cup of coffee.
