Low Carb Almond Cookies

Low Carb Almond CookiesI was on the website www.realfoodcarolyn.com awhile ago and found a recipe called Awesome Almond Cookies.   She had permission to reprint the recipe but for us diabetics and low carbers it had loads of maple syrup in it so I decided to make them low carb.  All I can say is they are named appropriately and they are awesome.

These are ridiculously easy and quick to make.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Ingredients
  1. 2 C Almond Flour
  2. ¼ C Arrowroot
  3. 1½ t Baking Powder
  4. 1T Almond Extract
  5. 1 t Vanilla Extract
  6. ½ C Sugar Free Maple Syrup
  7. ½ C Melted Butter
  8. 8 Drops Liquid Sucralose
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. In separate bowl, combine liquid ingredients.
  4. Add in dry ingredients, mix until smooth and let sit for 10 minutes until thickened as in a soft cookie dough.
  5. Mix again and place by the spoonful (I use a scoop for uniformity) onto a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet and bake 15-20 minutes or until browning begins at the edges. Cookies will spread and be relatively flat.
  6. Makes 12 large cookies 3½” in diameter or 36 small cookies 2” in diameter.

Notes
  1. I made them large with a #24 (3T) scoop and got exactly 12 cookies and with a #70 scoop (1T) I got exactly 36 so…3 smalls equal 1 large and you are probably less likely to eat 6 smalls than 2 large.
