Almond Cookies

Posted by Solitary Dancer on December 15, 2006

Almond Cookies


2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup Splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp salt
sugar free chocolate chips (optional–so watch the carbs!)


Start by pre-heating your oven to 300F. Grease a cookie sheet.

Mix together all ingredients well. You want to portion the dough out into balls about the size of a walnut. When you put these onto the cookie sheet, it works best to flatten them down a bit, i.e. not leave them in ball shapes. Traditional method is to cook them for 5 minutes, then squish them with a fork and cook for another 15 minutes. A lazier method is to squish them ahead of time and just cook them for about 20 minutes.

There are about 30 carbs in the entire batch, so depending on how large or small you make your cookies, just divide 30 by the number of cookies you’ve made to figure out how many are in each cookie. So for example if you made 30 cookies, each one has exactly 1g carbs. This does not include the carbs from the chocolate chips.
