The Hungry Elephant

Christmas is this weekend so I’ve decided to publish a recipe earlier in the week. Hope you all enjoy and have a happy holiday!


Looking for a delicious Christmas cookie? I made these SUPER yummy shortbread cookies that will amaze your guests.. They don’t even taste low carb!

For this recipe, I altered one from King Arthur flour to make them low carb. Here is the original recipe: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/gluten-free-almond-flour-shortbread-cookies-recipe

What you’ll need:

3 tbsp room temperature butter
3 tbsp confectioners sugar substitute (I used Swerve)
1 cup almond flour
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt (omit if you use salted butter)

With a hand mixer, whip up your butter until its nice and smooth.. add in your sugar substitute, salt and vanilla – mix thoroughly.

Slowly whip while adding in the almond flour. It will eventually form a nice big lump of dough.

Roll out the dough and cut into shapes.. bake at 350 until golden brown.. roughly 5-10 minutes. keep an eye on it otherwise they burn easily.

Enjoy!
