Let’s dive into the recipe for Coffee Keto LCHF Almond Cookies.
Recipe: Coffee Keto LCHF Almond Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup granulated erythritol or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
- 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules (finely ground)
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds (optional, for added texture)
Preparing the Dough:
- In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, granulated erythritol (or your chosen keto-friendly sweetener), and finely ground instant coffee. Mix well to combine.
- Add the softened unsalted butter, vanilla extract, and salt to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms. If you’re adding chopped almonds, fold them into the dough.
- Form the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to allow it to firm up.
Shaping and Baking:
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator and shape it into small, bite-sized cookies. You can roll them into balls and flatten them with a fork or shape them using cookie cutters for more creative designs.
- Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet, leaving a little space between each.
- Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden around the edges.
- 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.
