Almond flour cookies – Whether we have friends coming or we want to treat ourselves with something sweet, cookies always have a special place on the table of a warm and lively home.
They usually are packed with a lot of calories so we consider them a guilty pleasure, and to be honest it is often worth it.
However by using almond flour instead of white flour and stevia instead of sugar you can enjoy the same rich flavors without worrying about calories.
So if you are looking for a low crab, keto friendly and sugar free cookies,
These are the 3 recipes we recommend:
Recipe #1: Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookies – Gluten Free
My gosh, these cookies taste great and what is better is that they are healthy as well. Gluten free, sugar free, no milk, no flour, what else could you ask for? These are perfect for a quick takeaway breakfast or as snack to fight over when guests arrive.
Anyway, they are super easy to make, and take about 20 minutes from start to finish.
These are the ingredients you will need:
Almond Flour Cookies
- 1 Large Egg
- 1 can peanut butter - Salted
- ¼ Cup Almond Flour
- 1 tbsp Coconut flour
- ½ cup
- ½ tbsp Vanilla
- ½ tbsp Baking Soda
- Salt (Kosher or Sea)
- Set the oven 350 degrees F
To start almond flour cookies you will need to have all your ingredients prepared. Then turn on the oven and set it to 350 degrees F and prepare your cookie baking sheet.
Next get a large plate or a bowl and mix the baking soda, almond and coconut flour, do it until it is homogeneous.
Latter you need to add the egg, honey, peanut butter and vanilla powder to the previous mix, stir them until everything is evenly mixed and like a paste.
Now, get your baking sheet and use a scoop to make even deposits of the dough. It is very simple, but just be careful to leave around 2 inches of space between each scoop because they will grow a bit and we don’t want them to overlap.
Next, is just a dash of kosher or sea salt on each cookie and they are ready to go to the owen where they should bake for around 10 minutes (add or subtract 1-2 minutes if you want them softer or crispier)
When they come out of the oven, gently use a fork to make lines vertically and horizontally across the surface of each cookie, this will add some texture and stop them from puffing up.
The amount of nutrients and energy this cookies will provide is 127 Calories, 10g net Carbs, 8g Fat and 4g Protein per one cookie.
Recipe #2: Simple Almond Flour Peanut Butter Cookies with 4 Ingredients
These are vegan, gluten free, and fat free. Very soft inside but with a crispy surface. They are one of the simplest to make and take just 20 minutes to prepare.
List of Ingredients:
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar
- 1 cup Almond flour
- 1/2 cup organic peanut butter (no sugars or fat)
We start almond flour cookies by preheating the owen at 350 F and preparing a baking pan with parchment paper. After this we need to mix the maple syrup, almond flour and the peanut butter in a bowl, until it is nice and even.
Some peanut butter brands are more liquidiy than others and sometimes the dough can be a bit runny, in this case just add a bit extra almond flour so it is easier to form small balls.
Next, take 1 – 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar and put them in another plate. Form 12 small balls of dough and roll them through the coconut sugar.
Place them on the parchment paper with at least two inches distance between the balls and use a fork to make lines horizontally and vertically, press down a bit as well but make sure that you don’t completely flatten them. Half an inch high is a good measure.
Lastly, put them in the oven for around 10 minutes, the indication that they are ready is that they should start looking golden on the edges and you will start to see some cracks.
Once out of the owen, wait for them to cool down for about 10 minutes, they will taste much better. Ideally they should be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
Recipe #3: Low Carb Almond Flour Vanilla Peanut Crunch Cookies
Delicious cookies with chopped peanuts and peanut butter, couldn’t recommend them more. They are zero sugar and keto friendly, healthy and fun to make.
However, for this one you will need a food processor to blend things nice and smoothly.
The ingredients you will need:
- 2 large Eggs
- 1 cup Peanuts
- 1 1/4 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/3 Cup Erythritol (or another alternative sweetener)
- 1 Tablespoon Almond Flour
Just like the cookies before, preheat the oven to 370 F.
Place everything except the Peanuts in the food processor and blend until everything is nice and even. Then crush the peanuts and add them to the paste.
Use your hands to make dough balls and put them on top of the earlier prepared baking sheet with parchment paper.
12 balls in a batch should be just enough to fill the whole space, but make sure you have around 2 inches between the balls of doe, after they are placed press them down with a fork in a cross pattern.
Put in the oven and bake for around 15 minutes, until they are golden brown on the edges. After they are out of the oven, let them cool down for around 10 minutes before serving. Bon appetite!
