Flower shaped keto lemon cookies are filled with a sugar free lemon curd for a low carb spring treat.
Quick and easy, these almond flour cookies are a fun activity to enjoy with the kids too.
How to make mini keto lemon cookies
The dough for these cookies is made with almond flour and butter. Add powdered sweetener and a dash of vanilla extract.
I used flower shape cookie cutters which are big enough to cover a mini muffin tin. You could use another shape but I liked the daisy shape they made.
Gently place the cut cookie shape into the muffin tin and press down in the centre to make a well.
For the filling, I used my lemon curd recipe. This is just eggs, butter, lemon and sweetener. When lemons are in season here, I always have a batch of lemon curd in the fridge!
The almond flour could be replaced with walnut flour or pecan flour. Coconut flour is not advisable in this recipe as it will make a dry cookie.
Instead of using lemon curd for the filling, try some strawberry chia jam.
Store the cookies in the fridge in a sealed container and they should last up to 3 - 4 days.
