Low-Carb Hazelnut Butter Cookies (Egg-Free)

Posted on January 22, 2016. Filed under: Cookies, Desserts | Tags: , |

Low-Carb Hazelnut Butter Cookies

Hazelnuts are wonderfully low in carbs and they taste delicious in various dishes from savory salads to Nutella and other sweet stuff. However, their taste is somewhat powerful and that’s why they need something else to tame down that characteristic flavor. Hazelnut cookies, for example, cry for something milder tasting in addition to hazelnut flour. If you use only hazelnut flour, the cookies taste pretty strong, almost too strong, at least that’s how I find it.

Well, mainstream recipes would naturally use wheat flour in addition to hazelnut flour also for binding, but that’s an inferior option, if you ask me. After so many people ruining their health with excess amount of carbs, starch and grains, I really cannot recommend wheat flour. Luckily almond flour is a perfect option for low-carbers and people who follow ketogenic diet. Almond flour is mild in taste and it accompanies hazelnut flour extremely well. That’s why these delicious Low-Carb Hazelnut Butter Cookies contain both flours in perfect harmony — together with real butter that makes any cookie a mouth-watering delicacy!
