  • 1 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 1/4 cup granular sweetener of choice
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)

  1. In a medium bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, spices, salt, baking powder and xanthan gum.
  2. Set the bowl aside.
  3. With a stand mixer or hand mixer, combine the granular sweetener and butter together on high speed for 2 minutes until it’s slightly fluffy.
  4. Add the egg to the butter and sugar mixture and mix for another minute.
  5. Add the flour/spice mixture and mix on med-high until the dough is evenly mixed.
  6. It will be very soft at this point.
  7. Dive the dough in two portions.
  8. Wrap the dough in saran wrap and put it in the fridge.
  9. Chill for 1 hour.
  10. Preheat oven to 350F
  11. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness on parchment or other non-stick surface.
  12. Cut with cookie cutters, any size will do.
  13. Continue until all the dough has been rolled and cut.
  14. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F.
  15. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
  16. You can stop there if you just want cookies.
  17. To make cookie butter, put all the cookies in a high-performance blender or food processor with 3/4 cup coconut oil. Mix until it is the consistency of natural peanut butter.
  18. Store in a jar in the fridge.
  19. Bring your portion to room temperature before eating.


*Use the low carb sweetener that you prefer. If carbohydrates are not a concern, I recommend coconut sugar. If you use regular sugar, I recommend mixing 1/2 cup of white sugar with 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar. If you use a sugar substitute, such as Swerve, I recommend adding a teaspoon or two of molasses to the mix. It will add flavour without adding too many carbs.
