ALMOND FLOUR KETO SHORTBREAD COOKIES

ALMOND FLOUR KETO SHORTBREAD COOKIES. This recipe with almond flour has 1g net carb each & just 4 INGREDIENTS! Taste just like real shortbread.

Obviously to make almond flour shortbread cookies, you need almond flour. Beyond that, it’s just some flavoring extract, sweetener, and butter.

Tips for choosing these ingredients:

Make sure rather than almond meal, you use a finely ground blanched almond flour. If you want the best keto shortbread cookies you’ve ever had, you need that; it really helps with the texture.
To any alternatives in this recipe butter is going to be far superior. For a dairy free option, you can absolutely use ghee or even coconut oil, but it’s going to give you the best flavor and texture if you’re able to use butter.
To the cookie dough, use salted butter or add couple pinches of salt. Balances out the sweetener.
