Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened (one stick)
  • 3/4 cup Swerve granulated sweetener or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blanched, extra-fine almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar optional - it contains cornstarch, but it is a tiny amount
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

Cinnamon Sugar

  • 2 Tablespoons Swerve granulated sweetener
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  • Beat the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla together in a large bowl until fluffy.
  • Add the almond flour, baking soda, cram of tartar (if using) and salt. Mix just until combined.
  • Scoop out the dough and roll into balls.
  • Combine the sweetener and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  • Roll the cookie balls in the cinnamon mixture.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet (you will need two) and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake cookies for 10 minutes, until golden and set.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire cooling rack.

Notes

  • Do not skimp on the chilling time or your cookies will fall flat and spread in the oven.
  • The butter should be softened, not melted or your cookies will fall flat and spread in the oven. Ask me how I know, lol
  • The Swerve sweetener does have a cooling effect when used on the outside of the cookies. The amount of cinnamon used helps to balance this out.
  • Dip the bottom of the glass into the cinnamon sugar mixture to keep the cookie dough from sticking.
  • 4 total carbs - 2 fiber = 2 net carbs per cookie.
  • My first batch made 18 cookies, the second and third made 20 cookies.
