These delicious keto butter cookies have an almost shortbread taste. Just 4 ingredients are used to make this simple and easy cookie recipe. Baked with almond flour they are also gluten free and paleo.
Keto butter cookies are low in carbs but high in taste. The rich buttery flavour could almost convince you that they are the real thing!
Almond flour is a great low carb flour to bake cookies with. It helps gives these cookies a shortbread texture and does not overpower the flavour. Other low carb nut flours such as walnut or pecan could be uses as a replacement.
How to make keto butter cookies
Just 4 ingredients are need to make these low carb cookies:
- Almond flour
- Low carb sweetener - I prefer to use powdered low carb sweetener so that there is no grainy texture. I like a monkfruit/erythritol mix.
- Vanilla extract
When the cookies are fresh from the oven they will be very delicate to handle. You must allow them to cool completely.
I store my cookies in a sealed container and keep them in the fridge.
Instead of rolling out the dough and using a cookie cutter, use a cookie scoop to form cookies. Hand made rustic or even cut they taste the same!
The almond flour could be replaced with walnut flour or pecan flour. Coconut flour should not be used as it will make a dry cookie.
