Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons ground ginger (depending on how gingery you like it) 
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • ¾ tsp baking powder 
  • ¼ tsp salt 
  • ½ cup almond butter (stir well before measuring) 
  • ¼ cup butter, softened 
  • ¾ cup Swerve, Granular 
  • 1 large egg, room temperature 
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the almond butter and butter together. Beat in the Swerve until well combined, then beat in the egg and vanilla extract. 
  4. Add the almond flour mixture and beat until fully incorporated. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Cover a flat bottomed glass with parchment or cling wrap and use to press the balls down into ¼ inch thick circles. 
  5. Bake about 15 minutes, until they are just set. Remove from the oven and reduce oven temperature to 200F. Place the cookies back inside until they are golden brown and quite firm to the touch, about 20 more minutes. 
  6. Remove and let cool completely. They will crisp up as they cool. 

*Note: the thinner and smaller you make the cookies, the crispier they will be.

Makes about 24 cookies. 2 cookies per serving.

      Hi Patricia, you should be able to adjust the size on your printer settings. Look for a "scale" or "zoom" feature. Also be sure to click "print 2 sided. Hopefully this helps! We are working to improve our website, including the user-friendliness of our printing feature. We appreciate your comment.

    Anything I can substitute for the almond butter if I don’t have that on hand? Would love to try these!

      Hi Layla, any nut butter should work in this recipe!
