Keto Almond Butter Cookies
Traditional peanut butter cookies are high on most people’s list of loved cookies. And the keto peanut butter cookies are even better!
Now, there is some debate about whether peanuts and peanut butter are “keto”. I could debate that one forever, but I’m not going to. So for those that would rather skip the peanuts due to their sightly higher carb content, then this recipe for keto almond butter cookies is going to be perfect for you!
Let’s not stop there, though. Even if you DO love keto peanut butter cookies, you will STILL fall in love with this quick and easy keto almond butter cookie recipe.
What makes these kinds of keto cookies so phenomenal is their crunchy exterior and their soft interior. To me, that makes the perfect cookie!
The crisscrosses are optional, but definitely a fun touch to add to the cookie.
How to Make Keto Almond Butter Cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add almond butter, egg and brown sweetener to a medium bowl.
With a small ice cream scoop or cookie scoop, scoop about a tablespoon sized amount of dough and plop onto the prepared baking sheet. The cookies expand while cooking so leave room between cookies.
Using a fork, score the cookies (press down lightly in a criss-cross pattern).
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Is Almond Butter Keto Friendly?
It most certainly is! In fact, it is one of the MOST keto friendly nut butters out there in my opinion.
I mean, there are some others that are lower in carbs, but taste horrendous. And others (like cashew butter) that are higher in carbs, but taste lovely.
Almond butter is a great nut butter to bake with to get a really nice texture and flavor.
How to Store Keto Almond Butter Cookies
You will want to store these keto cookies in an airtight container. I prefer to put all baked goods in the refrigerator to help make them last longer.
If you feel your cookies will be devoured in less than a day, feel free to leave them out on the counter as that is what I do. In fact, I leave them out for longer, but the safest route is always the fridge!
Can I Eat Desserts on Keto?
Oddly enough, I get asked this question all the time. And my answer is always the same: “Of course you can! Just make it a keto dessert”!
The beautiful thing about keto is that you can have most the things you normally would, just modified a bit. There are substitutions for most things. Not all, but most.
And the things that you can’t substitute for, then they are probably meant to stay dormant in your diet.
Now, having said all this, I would not over-indulge and make keto desserts the main course of your new lifestyle, but having a keto treat on occasion is perfectly fine!
