Calories 117 kcal


  • 2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup Truvia white sugar blend
  • 1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum (can use 1 egg instead)
  • 1/2 cup Butter softened
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. Mix all ingredients with a mixer.  (I actually use my hands with food safe gloves on as I like how it feels gooshing through my fingers as it mixes.)

  3. Evenly divide mixture to make 18 cookies.

  4. Roll each piece into balls.

  5. Flatten each dough ball with a fork making a criss-cross pattern. (The dough balls will not spread and so you have to flatten them.)

  6. Bake for 25 minutes.

  7. Let cool thoroughly.  They will be crumbly until cooled.

  8. ENJOY!

Recipe Notes

  • My family adores the cookie press almond trees at Christmas time.  I was really sad at not being able to eat those.  So, I set out to find some alternatives.  This recipe is one and tastes JUST LIKE what we all loved so much.  
  • These cookies brown a little better with Truvia than they do with other sugar alternatives, but not much.
  • I like Xanthan Gum better than using an egg.  That is just me.  Either works fine to keep cookie from crumbling so much without them.
  • This recipe yields cookies at 2 carbs per cookie.  Compare that to say one of the better almond cookies on the market at 14 carbs per cookie!!!!  
  • This is a win in the battle!
