By Carbophobic @carbophobic

Lowcarb almond cookies

This recipe has been adapted from Easy Hazelnut Cookies recipe by Louise Appelkvist @swedish_diet.

Super-easy and takes about 15-20 minutes in total, including baking time.

Total 9g net carbs per 100g
380 calories, 24g fat, 13g protein



I didn’t have hazelnuts as per the original recipe, so used a mixture of ground almonds and finely chopped walnuts instead. I am using Xylitol as the sweetener, plus I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the original recipe.

  • 75g ground almonds
  • 50g finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 egg whites
  • 50g Xylitol
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 squares dark chocolate (I am using Cavalier brand, sweetened with Stevia)


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas Mark 6
  • Mix almons, walnuts, xylitol and spices
  • Whist egg whites lightly and mix in with the dry ingredients
  • Form small mounds on a greased baking tray (I had 7 cookies made from the amounts above)
  • Bake for about 10-15 minutes

Nutritional information:

In total, using the amounts above:

  • per 100 grams of the mixture – 380 cal, 9g net carbs, 24g fat, 13g protein
  • per 1 cookie (36g) – assuming 7 cookies  are made from amounts listed above – 136 cals, 3g net carbs, 9g fat, 5g protein

Overall impression:

These are great – super qick and easy, and really tasty! The square of chocolate gives it a nice extra oomph! factor.  The only thing that wasn’t quite right is the amount of Xylitol – it is very sweet, so I will try to use less next time

Highly recommend this recipe and thanks again to Swedish Diet for the original recipe!
