Looking for sugar-free treats but tired of the same old recipes? Look no further than these Chewy Keto Almond Cookies!

Thanks to a secret ingredient, Allulose, and the magic of egg whites, these cookies are not only low-carb, but also irresistibly soft and chewy. Don't skip the lemon juice or cream of tartar, as they act as stabilizers for the egg whites and ensure the perfect texture.

And for an extra pop of flavor, these cookies are infused with both vanilla and almond extracts. Just be sure to use a light hand with the almond extract, as it can easily overpower the other flavors. Whether follow a keto diet or are just looking for a delicious guilt-free dessert, these Chewy Keto Almond Cookies are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!

Recipe Tips

This recipe only uses egg whites. You can reserve the yolks for another recipe. Here are a few tips on how you can use leftover egg yolks:

Serve these keto cookies with a cup of tea, coffee, Mocha, Hot Chocolate or Chocolate Milk.

Can't eat almonds? Use an equivalent amount of flaked coconut (large unsweetened coconut chips), ideally lightly toasted). You can also skip the almond extract and use coconut extract instead. This will make the cookies nut-free!

If you prefer a crunchier cookie, you could substitute erythritol for allulose. However, recent studies have linked erythritol to increased blood clotting and potentially increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), so beware if you're using this sweetener often.

To learn more and decide whether you want to use it, I recommend this podcast which offers a balanced breakdown of the study. (Note: Being genetically prone to blood clots, I chose to avoid using Erythritol.)

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Can I use another sweetener? I don't have what's listed.

Yes, you can use xylitol or erythritol. I do need to mention that I'm not 100% comfortable using erythritol anymore - check out this post: Is Erythritol Safe? Unpacking the Latest Research

Hi Martina,
I am eager to make these cookies but noticed the amount of almond flour is missing from the list of ingredients.  Please include it when you can. I'm sure the wait will be well worth it. Thanks. Furhana

Thank you for noticing! Things have been really hectic at home with the twins. It's 1/2 cup - fixing now! 😊
