Low Carb Chocolate Almond Cookies



Finding low carb sweets and desserts is very hard in Germany, which could be deadly for me who's got a real weakness for chocolate, gummi bears and ice cream ;). A few days ago, I created some low-carb chocolate cookies, using gluten flour and ground almond. The cookies didn't turn out bad at all, they're soft and rather flaky but still delicious! Scroll down to find the recipe!



Ingredients (Makes 14)
  • 100 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g gluten flour
  • 100 g ground almond
  • 4 tbs sweetener (of your choice - you can add or reduce the amount as you like)
  • 4 - 5 tbs cocoa (without sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients well. Shape into little balls. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.


What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Frogs and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails,
That's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And everything nice,
That's what little girls are made of.


For people who celebrate Chinese New Year: Gong Xi Fa Cai 2011 ! May you all have a prosperous and joyful Bunny year ahead :)!
