Low carb gluten free almond flour cookies

This was a delightful treat.  Taste like normal cookies, can’t even tell they are low carb or gluten free.

I AM GETTING BETTER AT THIS BAKING THING!

Wet ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup xylitol or sugar substitute
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

Dry ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  1. In a bowl, mix together the butter, coconut oil, and xylitol.  Add the eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the baking soda, salt, almond flour, and coconut flour. Slowly add the flour mixture to the creamed ingredients 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Form the dough into a ball with your hands and place on a piece of plastic wrap. Form the dough into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350.  Grease pan.
  5. At this point, you can either scoop it into balls, or I made them into flat cookies since they don’t actually flatten on their own in the oven.  Or you can use a cookie cutter and make fun shapes! I added a couple dark chocolate chips to each cookie, but you can add whatever you want to it or not at all.
  6. Bake for 13-15 minutes.

Nutrition Info:

This batch I made 25 cookies total.  So approximately each cookie is 128 calories and 6.6g of carbs.
