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 this buttery, crumbly Keto Cream Cheese Almond Cookies!

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 (update – we now have a whole series of these going on)!  I made 6 different variations and had my family and friends taste them. This recipe was the clear winner so I’m 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.

And like most cookies, this one is pretty easy to make.  We just throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, roll the cookie dough into a ball, flatten them out with your palm and throw them in the oven for 16-20 minutes.

The next step is probably the hardest and most important of all the steps, which is to wait for at least 10 minutes once the cookies are done before you touch them!  This time gives the cream cheese a chance to harden and bind the cookie together.  If you try to pick these up before it cools down, chances are that it’ll crumble on you.

Once the long hard wait is over, go right ahead and enjoy the cookies of your labor!

PSA – to take these cookies to the next level, top them with our Keto Nutella Spread. Nom..Nom!

For this one, you will need Almond Flour and Swerve/Monkfruit as the special ingredient, which can be purchased on Amazon or a local specialty supermarket.

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.

6) Roll the dough into 1 inch size balls and place on a silicon baking mat or greased baking sheet.  Press down the dough balls using your palm of your hand to roughly 1/2 inch thickness.

7) 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!
