It’s time for some perfectly sweet treats! These easy Low Carb Cinnamon Cookies really hit the spot when I need something sweet. Light and fragrant with a great cinnamon flavour perfectly paired with a cup of coffee! They take less than 10 minutes to make and you will probably have them ready before your oven is done pre-heating.
This Low Carb Cinnamon Cookie recipe is also easily made for only 1/2 a recipe to make about 9 cookies. I like to only make a few because I tend to eat them more sparingly than if I had a whole bunch sitting there. I know its a mental trick but it works for me!
It seems that there is always a struggle with preferences to sweeteners in low carb and keto recipes. Some sweeteners have aftertastes, some are too granular, and for me, some give me migraines. So when making any recipes that call for artificial sweetener, use the sweetener that you prefer and try to ensure the quantity measures the same for needed sweetness.
Does almond flour have carbs?
Yes, almond flour does have carbs. It can vary a lot between brands so check the label of the one you use to bake and calculate accordingly. A serving (1/4 cup or 28 grams) of almond flour has around 160 calories, 6 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fibre. Making this only 6 total carbs or 3 net carbs per serving of a 1/4 cup.
Can I replace flour with almond flour?

- Prep Time
- 5 minutes
- Karami Urbanoski
- 2 cups Almond Flour
- 1/2 Cup Soft Butter
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Cup Swerve Sweetener (or equivalent)
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Use a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop and place each onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment or silicone baking mat. Or alternately roll into small balls making about 18.
Once on the cookie sheets flatten with a fork. These cookies do not spread or flatten out by themselves.
Bake for 14-16 minutes, just until the edges are nice and golden brown.
Note: This recipe is easily halved for those who only want 9 cookies for a treat! Just use 1/2 of everything including the egg. Just lightly whip the egg and use only 1/2. Enjoy!
