    These cookies are SO GOOD. My family loved them, including my “I hate everything healthy/that is not junk food” brother who actually ended up stealing a couple at his own will! They are soft, buttery and look super cute on a plate combined with other holiday cookies. Not to mention they are very easy to make… Full recipe is on my blog: MouthwateringMotivation :) Perfect Almond Shortbread Cookies-Keto Serves: 12 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp(42g) coconut flour 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp(67g) almond flour 1/4 cup splenda(or another sweetener to taste) 1 tbsp truvia (or another 2 tbsp of a sweetener that measures like sugar) 1/8th tsp salt 1/8th tsp xanthan gum (optional, helps dough stick together) Pinch of baking powder 6 tbsp butter, softened (95g) 1/2 tsp almond extract 12 almonds (unsalted) Directions: 1. Pre-heat oven to 400*F. 2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. 3. In another bowl add your butter and almond extract. 4. Using a fork, whisk well until light and fluffy (alternatively you can use a beater) 5. Add the butter mixture to the flour, mix until a thick dough is formed. (Taste at this point and add additional sweeter/extract if needed) 6. Roll dough into 12 even balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 7. Flatten each slightly in the centre with your thumb then place an almond in the centre. Optional, sprinkle the tops of each with a little granular sweetener. 8. Bake for 7-9min or until the cookies are just barely browned. (They will be fragile when first coming out of the oven so let them cool completely on the tray before trying to remove!!) 9. One cooled, store them gently in a plastic container between layers of parchment in the freezer or on a plate on the counter for up to 5 days! Enjoy! Note: If you are having trouble with the dough sticking together, add a small amount of whisked egg or egg white to the dough (~1/2 tbsp as needed).

    These look so good! What’s the measurement on the Splenda? Just says 1/4. Assume cup since tsp would be tiny lol. Thanks for sharing!
