crunchy almond cookies

i discovered this by accident when i was preparing for the beach scene snack for clara… it’s so crunchy!  perfect by itself or even better with ice cream…

Makes 4 cookies (the picture was double the recipe)

Approximate Ratio 2.9:1

Approximate Calories 75

Approximate Carb 1g


1T (6g) sliced almond, unsalted & dry roasted, roughly cut into pieces

1/2T (3g) coconut flakes

1/2t (2.2g) Truvia

pinch ground cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

1/2t (2.5g) cold butter, cut into small cubes


Mix all the dry ingredients to gather.  Rub in the butter with your hand.  Make four small piles of the mixture on a baking sheet lined with a parchment paper.  Spread them out to a circle, making sure the ingredients are overlapping, but thinly spread out (about 1.5 inch diameter).

Bake at 325 for 4-5 minutes.

Let it cool completely.

Tiffany started making keto meals for her daughter Clara in 2010, after Clara’s diagnosis with Infantile Spasm. While tough at times, managing between the strict requirements of the diet, Clara’s very sophisticated sense of taste, an older daughter whose overwhelming enthusiasm to help is only rivaled by her ability to make a much bigger mess in the process, and a dog who is determined to eat Clara’s leftovers to the detriment of her own waistline, Tiffany is grateful that her hands are being used to heal Clara. Tiffany hopes this website would be especially helpful to those working or single moms who do not have the time to design and try out new meals. Bon appetit to all the keto kids in the world!
