  • 112 grams almond flour sifted
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 24 grams Monkfruit confectioners sweetener sifted
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350°
  • Prepare a baking sheet with either parchment paper or a Silipat mat
  • Sift all dry ingredients together
  • Add butter and vanilla to dry ingredients
  • Mix well with a fork until well blended, all dry ingredients are moistened and a cookie dough consistency has been achieved
  • Using a cookie scoop, portion into 10 balls. Place about 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet
  • Flatten the dough to about ¼ inch, or slightly less, if you want your cookies to be more crisp
  • Bake for about 12 - 15 minutes or until they just begin to brown
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool completely. Transfer to a cooling rack after about 5 - 10 minutes.


These will continue to become more firm as they cool.
If you substitute different sweeteners, you may experience a different final texture.
