I've always enjoyed coconut desserts…specifically one of my first memories were these delicious coconut muffins I brought in years ago for a school presentation.

I've since made a keto friendly version of these coconut muffins, which you can find on my blog as well.

After successfully making those coconut muffins, I knew I wanted to make keto coconut cookies next. The almonds in this recipe just sort of became a part of these cookies as I had them sitting in my cupboard.

Since the cookies already contained some almond flour, I figured they could be a nice addition. 

The base of these keto coconut almond cookies is primarily almond flour and coconut flour.

Then we add shredded coconut and almond slivers along with some almond extract to really bring out the flavour in these cookies (though I think coconut extract would be just as delicious).

These keto coconut almond cookies also contain butter, two different sweeteners, heavy cream and xanthan gum

We whip the butter with the two sweeteners to get a light and fluffy texture. The two sweeteners aren't technically necessary, you could just use one in these keto coconut almond cookies.

But I love the flavour combination that a brown sugar sweetener like sukrin gold along with a white sugar replacement (powdered monkfruit sweetener) brings to the cookies. 

The heavy cream is added to thin the batter slightly and provide flavour. It helps the cookies to flatten a bit so you can get those crispier edges. 

Finally, xanthan gum is optional but almost always recommended for any keto cookie recipe because it adds a bit of chew to the cookies and helps them from becoming crumbly when cooled.

Ingredients In Keto Coconut Almond Cookies

  • Almond Flour – This is the base for our cookies. It provides the best flavour.
  • Coconut Flour Coconut flour helps to improve the texture of the cookies by thickening the batter and giving them a smoother texture overall.
  • Shredded Coconut – You can use shredded, flaked or desiccated if you prefer for the coconut portion of these cookies.
  • Slivered Almonds – These add a nice crunch to the cookies. Feel free to use flaked coconut pieces instead if you prefer an all-coconut cookie. 
  • Butter – I use salted butter for these so just be sure to use a little additional salt if you are using unsalted butter.
  • Egg – Make sure this is room temperature so the butter doesn't firm-up again.
  • Vanilla Extract – Both pure and artificial work just fine.
  • Almond or Coconut Extract – You can use either. I used almond extract in mine.
  • Sukrin Gold Sweetener – This is my favourite brown sugar substitute. Swerve brown works as well.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener – This is my go-to sweetener for almost any keto dessert. It blends seamlessly into desserts.
  • Baking Soda – This helps our cookies to spread and get a slightly crunchy top.
  • Xanthan Gum – Helps provide some chewiness to the cookies.
  • Salt – As mentioned above, use just a little more if using unsalted butter.

Tips For Making Keto Coconut Almond Cookies

  • These may not seem done when they first come out of the oven, be sure to let them cool fully as they WILL firm up. 
  • These cookies are also tasty with chopped pecans or sugar free mini chocolate chips added.
  • If you want thicker cookies, just barely flatten the tops of the cookies before baking. For thinner, crispier cookies, flatten them before baking (as seen in the photos/video).
