If you pursue perfection, you could actually download a macaron template to follow so you could pipe evenly. Just make sure that to leave 2 fingers spacing as it will spread during baking.

If you notice, each flavor has its own unique shape. I have used different types of piping star tip to show you guys how versatile the recipe can be. Just use your creativity and bake these cookies in all shape and sizes! If you don’t have any piping tip and do not want to buy one, you could even just pipe out just as it is and bake it flat!

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

I realized Keto diet is getting really popular these days. Both my brothers were on this diet to lose weight and indeed they are super fit and slim these days. It wasn’t easy to recreate Keto cookies (as requested by my brother), as sugar and flour are the main ingredients to give cookie that crunchy texture we all love. But, I managed to do so after trying so many revisions.

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

In today’s article, I am going to share with you guys my Keto Almond Butter Cookie recipe. They are super easy to make just like a basic butter cookie recipe but a total delightful to eat. Buttery, nutty and also crunchy, this is one cookie that everyone (Keto, non-keto) would love. Who cares if it is sugar-free, gluten-free? It is guilt-free for sure!

Keto Almond Butter Cookies – Chinese New Year with Gavia Natural Sweetener

 For my sweetener, I have used my trusty natural sweetener from Gavia. Gavia is a natural sweetener made from Stevia plant and Erythritol. While I’m sure most of you guys would know what is Stevia, Erythritol is also naturally found in foods like fruits, vegetables, cheese and yoghurt through the process of fermentation as the by-product of sugar. Hence, Gavia is an all-natural, zero-calorie, zero glycemic index sweetener which works great for baking and cooking. I actually teamed up with the Gavia team and they will be using my recipe to sell these Keto Almond Butter Cookies during Chinese New Year 2020! For a limited time and pre-orders only.

I used a wooden square mold for this recipe. If you don’t have, you could make it round by shaping it into a log or make it squarish with your hands. Do whatever you like, you can even roll out and use a cookie cutter!

Everyone nowadays are so crazy about Jenny Bakery’s Cookies from Hong Kong! Because, it is so good!

Last month, my brother went to Hong Kong for a business trip and heard about the Jenny Butter Cookies crazed.  Immediately, he went to queue for a good hour to get us some.

Please ensure that you are using high quality butter. In Singapore, salted Golden Churn butter in a canned is considered the finest of all.
