These Crispy Keto Almond Cookies are no longer in your dreams, keto friends.

They are dubbed my beautiful mistake that turned into crispy keto almond cookies.

This is why experimenting in the kitchen is fun but can get costly if it’s inedible.

Fortunately, this keto almond cookie recipe is one of our favourites.

Last year, I made delicious almond cookies for my dessert tray at Christmas.

I wanted sugar-free keto dessert options for Mrs. CBB, but everyone loved them.

Hooray, because whenever someone loves what I create, it makes me happy.

Keto Almond Cookies With A Crunch


Moving forward, I thought I’d make them again, but I added too much butter this time.

The result ended up being these super thin, crispy keto almond cookies.

I had no idea what to call them other than what they were, and they tasted like crispy keto almond cookies.

The golden buttery edges with the almond extract and sweetener melt in your mouth.

If you choose to skip the almond extract, it takes away from the overall flavour of the cookie.

Finally, Keto Cookies That Aren’t Soft.​


Believe it or not, I’ve been trying to make a crispy cookie for Mrs. CBB for over a year.

We settled on a Keto Biscotti because it was crispy, and she loved them.

Well, we both love them.

If you follow a ketogenic diet, you’ll know that it’s not often you find a crispy keto cookie.

Anytime we would use almond flour, the keto cookies would come out cake-like.

A soft texture is fine, but crunching into something sweet is what Keto dieters crave.

I’ve often tried to make a crispy keto cookie and failed.

I’ve learned from my beautiful mistake that butter is your friend.

The main mistake in my recipe was adding too much butter.

If you’re keto, you’re saying, “Is there such a thing as too much butter?”

Unfortunately, too much fat in a recipe tends to spread whatever you are baking.

Welcome the Crispy Keto Almond Cookies, which are thin as chips but good.

Key Points To Consider To Get A Crispy Cookie​


I have two tips besides the butter mistake above that will allow these cookies to reach their highest crispy potential.

Tip #1 Let them sit overnight on a baking tray in your oven.

Leaving the cookies in the oven, dry them even more overnight.

Tip #2 Freeze them for a day or so to allow the flavours of the cookie to come together.

For those who bake homemade keto treats, you may find they taste better with time.

This is the case with these, but it’s always a personal opinion.

I ate one of these keto almond cookies after they cooled, and they were buttery and crispy, and you could taste the almond extract.

Adding the sliced almonds to the cookie batter adds extra crunch, making them double-crunchy.

Another critical point is to add the almond slices manually so they don’t crush to bits.

Let’s get to making this simple keto cookie recipe.
