The Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the amount of each ingredient needed to make these gluten-free almond flour cookies.

Almond Flour Cookies ingredients in 3 bowls

Just 3 simple everyday keto pantry ingredients.

  • Almond Flour – or almond meal. Unless you are nut free you are likely to have some almond meal in your pantry. We have a lot of keto almond flour recipes and this happens to be possibly my favourite. Scroll to the hot tips for my best substitutions.
  • Powdered Erythritol – I use Sukrin Melis. For me Sukrin’s sugar free icing mixture has no weird aftertaste. It is zero calorie and zero carb. Make sure you use a sweetener that recrystallises in this recipe. It is best to use brands such as Natvia, Lakanto or Sukrin. Powdered erythritol or erythritol monk fruit blend or erythritol stevia sweeteners are best. Sweeteners such as allulose or xylitol do not crisp as much when they cool and will result in a soft cookie.
  • Butter – honestly, I use salted or unsalted it is up to you! For a vegan almond flour cookie simply replace the butter with coconut butter. It does add a coconut flavour and a crisper, denser texture to the cookies. I love this alternative as much as the original recipe.
  • Vanilla – completely optional but I love vanilla in a good cookie recipe. Swap for extracts or any flavour you prefer.

Flavour Variations

Making your almond flour cookies into new flavours is so easy. Here are just a few of my favourite ways to make them.

  • Dip them in chocolate or add a handful of sugar free choc chips for some almond flour choc chip cookies. There are so many sugar free chocolates available these days. Keto choc chip cookies should be in every cookie jar (in my opinion)!
  • Extracts or zest. Finely grated lemon rind for a tasty keto lemon cookie. Or Cinnamon oil for a tasty low carb snickerdoodle cookie.
  • Oatmeal cookies with almond flour are also a possibility with a low carb option. I use Lupin Flakes from Lupins For Life for the most amazing keto oatmeal recipes! Lupin flour (and flakes) are really low in carbs, gluten free and a great source of plant-based protein.
