I 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.
- 2 C Almond Flour
- ¼ C Arrowroot
- 1½ t Baking Powder
- 1T Almond Extract
- 1 t Vanilla Extract
- ½ C Sugar Free Maple Syrup
- ½ C Melted Butter
- 8 Drops Liquid Sucralose
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Combine dry ingredients.
- In separate bowl, combine liquid ingredients.
- Add in dry ingredients, mix until smooth and let sit for 10 minutes until thickened as in a soft cookie dough.
- 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.
- Makes 12 large cookies 3½” in diameter or 36 small cookies 2” in diameter.

- 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.
