Easy Keto Butter Cookies

  • Author: Stephanie Parlegreco
  • Total Time: 22-24 minutes
  • Yield: 14 Cookie (1 Cookie Per Serving) 1x


Homemade Danish Butter Cookies now come in a great low carb and keto version. Made with only a handful of ingredients that are probably already in your kitchen, they are only 1.2 net carbs per cookie!


  • 1 ¼ cup almond flour
  • ⅓ cup powdered swerve
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 8 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla





Preheat the oven while the dough is chilling in the fridge. 

Use a food processor to make the dough, it will make the dough more cohesive and well combined. 

Make sure the butter is softened to room temperature. 

Use a fork to make a crisscross pattern. 

1” cookie scoop makes 28 cookies. 

2” cookie scoop makes 14 cookies.

You can replace the almond flour with sunflower seed flour, or walnut flour, 1:1 ratio. 

Chocolate Dipped Option: Melt ⅓ sugar-free chocolate chips and ½ tbsp coconut oil. Dip half of each cookie into the chocolate and let on parchment paper. 

To Store: Keep them in an airtight container or in a Ziploc bag then placed them in the fridge. Keto cookies don’t have the same preservatives as store-bought cookies. So leaving them out on the counter will cause them to become stale quicker. So definitely keep them in the fridge. 

To Freeze: Place them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag and freeze for up to 1 month. Be sure the bag or container is completely sealed, otherwise they will end up getting freezer burn.
