Keto Shortbread Cookies Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup powdered erythritol or another keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (or coconut oil for a dairy-free option)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, powdered erythritol, and a pinch of salt. Mix well to ensure even distribution.
  3. Add the softened butter (or coconut oil) and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until a dough forms. You can use a spatula or your hands to bring the dough together.
  4. Shape the dough into a ball and place it between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll out the dough to your desired thickness (about 1/4 inch).
  5. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the rolled dough. Carefully transfer the cut-out cookies to the prepared baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between each cookie.
  6. Gather the remaining dough scraps, roll them out again, and cut out more cookies.
  7. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Keep in mind that the cookies will continue to firm up as they cool.
  8. 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.

One thought on “Keto Shortbread Cookies”
  1. I’m a little confused. The photo shows nuts (probably pecans) in the cookies, yet no mention of nuts are listed as ingredients in the recipe. Makes me wonder if these are photos of some other type of cookies and not the ones in the recipe.
