Craving something sweet on Keto? These are REALLY simple and tasty! Seriously 4-6 ingredients is all. This recipe only makes a tiny batch of low carb cookies (8-12), so if you are wanting a bigger batch, double up for sure!

The nuts here are optional. I actually used some of my previously made keto granola on top since it had a mix of pecans, pistachios and almonds. You can also add cinnamon, but again, totally optional!

These keto cookies would be great for a gathering like a potluck with keto and non-keto people alike!


  • 1 cup Almond Flour
  • ¼ cup Confectioners Erythritol/Monk Fruit
  • 3 tbsp Butter, softened (I like Kerrygold)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • Crushed nuts, amount desired (optional)
  • 1 pinch Cinnamon (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F and prepare cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all the ingredients well until a soft dough is formed (nuts can be added in or sprinkled on top if you’re using them.
  3. Roll into small balls (I used a small cookie dough scoop) and drop evenly onto cookie sheet.
  4. Press criss crosses into each cookie with a fork then bake at 350F for 10 minutes.
  5. Enjoy!!
