  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered erythritol (or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


Step 1: Preheat the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: Mix the Dry Ingredients

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, and a pinch of salt. Stir them together until well mixed.

Step 3: Cream the Butter and Sweetener

  1. In a separate bowl, cream the softened unsalted butter and powdered erythritol (or your chosen keto-friendly sweetener) together until smooth and fluffy.

Step 4: Add the Vanilla Extract

  1. Add the pure vanilla extract to the butter-sweetener mixture and stir until it’s fully incorporated.

Step 5: Combine the Wet and Dry Ingredients

  1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until a cohesive dough forms.

Step 6: Shape the Cookies

  1. Scoop out small portions of the dough and roll them into balls, about 1 inch in diameter.
  2. Place the dough balls on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
  3. Gently flatten each dough ball with a fork to create the classic shortbread pattern.

Step 7: Bake the Cookies

  1. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until they are lightly golden around the edges.

Step 8: Cool and Enjoy

  1. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  2. Once the cookies are fully cooled, they’re ready to enjoy. Savor the buttery, keto-friendly bliss!
