These low-carb shortbread cookies with almond flour are easy 5-ingredient healthy shortbread cookies perfect for the holidays. Naturally sweetened with 100% Sugar-free crystal sweetener, grain-free, vegan, and gluten-free: they will make everyone happy.
I absolutely love shortbread cookies. Last week I made some sugar free coconut flour shortbread cookies for my Christmas cookie jar. They are SO good! I thought I should add more shortbread to my Christmas cookie mix. Something a bit different, low-carb, vegan, paleo Almond Shortbread cookies. That is how I came up with these lovely low-carb shortbread cookies with almond meal.
You know my clean eating recipes are very easy to make – for those Almond Shortbread cookies you only need 5 ingredients:
Simply place all those ingredients into a bowl – whatever the order it will come up great – and combine them 1-2 minutes with an electric mixer or even your hands until it forms a crumble. Then, gather the piece into a dough bowl, refrigerate 10 minutes and you are ready to go.
I shaped 16 low carb shortbread cookies balls. I flatten each ball with a fork. I also used parchment paper on my cookie sheet to avoid them to stick to the tray but honestly, they won’t as they are very buttery – look at my hands! Best hand moisturizer ever 🙂
Those low carb shortbread cookies with almond flour are super fast to bake and after a quick 10 minutes cool down, you can enjoy some!
Those low carb shortbread cookies are crunchy, slightly sweet, buttery but 100% diabetes-friendly and cruelty-free for Christmas. I fancy a bit of melted chocolate on top of some of them. It is really up to you, I simply have an addiction for chocolate – if you follow the blog for a while you know it right? I shared so many low carb chocolate recipe here: low carb chocolate mug cake, sugar-free Nutella live for chocolate!
I hope you enjoyed this simple low carb recipe for Christmas. All my family approved this recipe, my girl had four of them the first night and I had to hide the cookie jar before all my cookies are gone before Christmas.
