Keto Cream Cheese Almond Cookies


Every time I make my Keto Cheesecake Tarts, which happens to be weekly lately as my family is addicted to them, I always have a little bit of the almond crust mixture leftover.

  So one day, I decided to use the rest of the mixture to make a cookie.  What came out of the oven was a buttery, crumbly cookie that was surprisingly pretty good! 

This got my creative juices flowing and the next day I started working on an almond cookie recipe, my first low-carb/keto cookie recipe in fact.  I made 6 different variations and had my family and friends taste them. This recipe was the clear winner so I am so excited to share it with all of you.

What makes these cookies special is the coarsely chopped almonds that give it that extra crunch and texture.  If you prefer a more smooth cookie, you can skip this part without compromising the taste.  PSA – to take these cookies to the next level, top them with our Keto Nutella Spread. Nom..Nom!

4) In a large mixing bowl, combine Almond Flour, Swerve/Monkfruit, chopped almonds, cream cheese, vanilla and melted butter (melt butter in the microwave, about 30 seconds). Note – make sure melted butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will ‘cook’ the batter.

8) Bake at 325 F for 16-20 minutes (ours took 16 minutes) or until bottom edges start to slightly brown.  Once done, wait at least 10 minutes for cookie to cool down prior to handling. We prefer enjoying the cookies once they have completely cooled down and hardened, which takes about 1 hour, but it’s up to you!
