Recipe Steps

1 h 10 min

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 F. Brown the butter in a small saucepan by placing cold butter into the saucepan and placing it over medium-low heat. Swirl the butter once in awhile to be sure it is melted. As the butter melts it will start to bubble and will go from bright yellow to an amber color. When the butter is browned, you will see brown flecks at the bottom of the pan and it will smell very nutty and pleasant. Remove from the heat and let it cool in the fridge until completely cooled about 30 minutes.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In the meantime, place the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan and kosher salt together.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Once the butter is cooled, add it to a mixer with the erythritol.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Then add the vanilla and eggs one at a time. Then add the almond flour mixture and mix again.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Stir in the chocolate chips until combined.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Place bowl of cookie dough in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm. Then scoop each cookie using a 1 oz cookie scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Press the cookies flat with your hand. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown. The cookies will be very soft, so allow them to cool on the baking sheet until firm enough to handle. Transfer them to a cooling rack.

        I made this recipe exactly as it said and it makes 22 cookies I don't know where they got 12 out of this so the carb and fat values are totally incorrect

          These are amazing! I had a small scoop and made 24, so I feel like I'm splurging when I have 2!

          I’m using nativo sugar free sweetened with allulose would the net carbs be the same in this cookie, does it matter the sugar free chocolate chip you put in it doesn’t specify

            These were delicious! After noticing how high the carbs were, I decided to make the cookie size 22 grams = 5 carbs per cookie. It made a total of 30 cookies. I sprinkled a bit of flaked salt on top of each cookie…perfection! Thank you so much! 🥰

                It says to add erythritol to butter mixture but it’s not mentioned in ingredients. How much and where do you buy that? Is that the same as the Swerve sugar replacement?

                  Swerve is a brand name for sugar replacement (the erythritol). You can also sometimes find it in bulk food stores or health food stores!

                    First Keto dessert I have made that actually tasted good and didn’t have a weird after taste! I used golden monk fruit sweetener instead of swerve graduated.

                        Love these cookies. I used 1 and 3/4 cup almond flour and 1/4 coconut flour. Instead of browning the butter I just soften the butter. I also used stevia brown sugar instead of granulated sugar substitute. It only took about 15 minutes to set up in the freezer before spooning them out onto the cookie sheet. The texture reminded me pancakes instead of traditional cookies..... so we ate them for breakfast 😋

                          This is a time consuming recipe and was worth the wait. I did add some walnuts!

                            These are amazingly delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, patience is a virtue with this recipe. They came out great. They are ultra buttery so if you don’t like butter cookies these aren’t for you. My batch made 26 pretty big cookies. Wish I could add a pic!

                              I do not recommend. Too oily and did not hold up in shape

                                When cooking with Almond flour you usually have to wait until they are entirely cooled, then they hold together.
