Flourless Sugar-Free Nut Butter and Jam Thumbprint Cookies
You’re probably already familiar with peanut butter and jam thumbprint cookies (especially if you have kids!). And I’m sure there are some low-carb versions of them out there. But this recipe takes the classic treat a step further by using a nut butter—like almond butter—to make delicious cookies that won’t spike your blood sugar. As usual, these are sugar-free, and using nut butter ensures that the carb count is drastically lower than it would be if you were using peanut butter.

2-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
When I was working on my Frozen Peanut Butter Cup experiments, I noticed that the combination of peanut butter and Sukrin syrup made a really thick dough when I mixed them for a half a minute.
So I wanted to make cookies out of the dough to see if they’d look — and taste — as perfect as the dough does.
Read about my experiments below: you’ll also find a recipe for the perfect (and super-easy) gluten-free, low-carb 2-ingredient peanut butter cookies! Yes, that’s correct; it takes just two ingredients and half a minute to mix and you’ve got a perfect dough! What else can you wish for?
Low-Carb Hazelnut Butter Cookies (Egg-Free)
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!
