Keto Butter Cookies Recipe:
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- Sliced almonds or crushed pecans
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter and granulated erythritol. Use an electric mixer or a whisk to cream them together until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
- Add the vanilla extract to the butter mixture and mix again until incorporated.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, and a pinch of salt.
- Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix well until a dough forms. The dough should be slightly crumbly but hold together when pressed.
- Scoop out small portions of the dough and roll them into balls. Place the balls onto the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten them with your palm or the bottom of a glass.
- If desired, press a sliced almond or a few crushed pecans onto the top of each cookie for added texture and decoration.
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
- Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
