Almond Butter Coconut Cookies (Low Carb and Paleo)
It’s always nice to have an easy cookie recipe. One of my go-to cookie recipes to make is Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Cookies. One request I get a lot is from people wanting to substitute liquid sweeteners, such as Stevia, in the cookies instead of using Swerve. The problem with that is the Swerve adds bulk to the cookies and soaks up the almond butter. I decided to try out a new recipe, to make these cookies Paleo friendly by using unsweetened finely shredded coconut to add some bulk to the cookies. Also, instead of dipping the chocolate I added chopped dark chocolate in the cookie dough (Note: the chocolate isn’t pictured). I’m happy to report that these are deliciously easy cookies that are every bit as good as my Chocolate Dipped Almond Butter Cookies.
- 1 cup almond butter
- 3/4 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 - 1 1/2 tsp liquid stevia
- 1/4 cup chopped dark chocolate (dairy free)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Combine the almond butter and coconut.
- Add the egg, vanilla, and baking soda.
- Mix in the dark chocolate until combined.
- Scoop cookies onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
- Flatten the cookies using a fork to make the crisscross pattern.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.
