Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter , unsalted
  • 1/2 cup granulated erythritol sweetner
  • 1 3/4 cups blanched almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans , chopped and toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sweetener with an electric mixer until lightened and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, vanilla extract, and salt and beat until well combined. Stir in the pecans.
  • Roll the dough into (20) 1-inch balls and place the balls a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten slightly with your palm.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from the oven and use a flat bottomed glass to flatten the cookies again to about 1/4-inch thick. Return to the oven and bake for another 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
  • Let cool completely on the baking sheet. Store on the counter for up to 4 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week. The cookies can also be frozen for up to a month.
