Are you looking for a cookie recipe with almond butter? If you are looking for a sweet treat on your keto diet, this keto almond butter cookie with chocolate is for you.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Almond Butter
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar Substitute
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ cup Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
  • Splash of Heavy Cream

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 
    2. Microwave the chocolate chips and cream in a safe microwave bowl in 30-second intervals until completely melted and combined. Spread in a thin layer on one of the parchment paper-lined baking sheets and set in the fridge or freezer to harden. You can also use a flat circular chocolate mould for this.
    3. Mix the almond butter, brown sugar and egg in a bowl. 
      With a small cookie dough scoop or by hand with a tablespoon-sized amount, roll dough into small balls and place on the second parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Make sure to leave 1.5-2 inches space between each cookie as they do expand slightly during baking. 
      Press down in both directions on each dough ball with a fork. 
    4. Cook for 10-13 minutes, keeping a close eye on them to prevent burning. 
    5. Before your cookies, complete baking, remove the chocolate from the refrigerator. Break the chocolate into small pieces for the tops of your cookies.
    6. The moment you remove the cookies from the oven, gently place a piece of chocolate in the center. Sprinkle the top of the cookie with a pinch of salt.
