Keto Shortbread Almond Cookies

Having a cup of tea on the weekend morning, missing something …

Shortbread cookies! Seems like I’ve been envying the carb-eaters a thing or two since going gluten-free, LCHF and keto. They often get to have a cookie with their coffee or tea … And I don’t. What do you envy them? There’s nothing wrong with some envy. In the end, we’re all only humans. Cookie craving humans. And shortbread almond cookies might just come to the rescue here.

Keto Shortbread Almond Cookies Recipe by My Sweet Keto3

I’m not going to write a long story behind either almonds or cookies themselves. There’s just one simple fact: In my rental, I have this nice little balcony with nice little sun rays on nice weekend non-rainy mornings. I make myself a nice cup of tea, and my significant other has coffee. Unless we go out to have coffee with our neighbours. But that’s another story that does not include keto-friendly cookies. This one does.

So, sitting on the balcony, I can have a cup of green tea, accompanied by a couple of shortbread almond cookies. And I’m a happy camper. Long story short. Long recipe, shortbread cookies. Enjoy!

  1. 1 T =1 0z so 1/2 oz would be 1 t +1/2 t.

    Your recipe looks great, however I’m confused about the 1/2 oz measurements of the almond flour etc. Do mean 1/2 an ounce as in weight or measured by measuring cup?
    It seems like such a tiny bit of flour if done by measuring cup.
    I am new to keto and have found accuracy is vital when using almond and coconut flours.
    Thanks

      Hi, Marianne,
      The recipe for real uses only tiny amounts of the flours listed (1/2 oz). That is because we are using lots of almond butter here that replaces the flour. Hope you like this one. I’m about to create another almond butter cookies recipe that will be even simpler than this one.
      Good luck with your keto journey!
