20 small cookies


  • ¾ cup almond flour

  • 3 tablespoons granular no-calorie sucralose sweetener (such as Splenda®)

  • 1 dash salt

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 egg white

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix almond flour, sweetener, and salt together in a small bowl with a fork. Add butter, egg white, and vanilla extract; continue mixing with a fork. Place in the freezer to help it harden for 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat.

  3. Remove batter from freezer. Measure out 1 teaspoon at a time; roll into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. Place plastic wrap on the bottom of a glass and roll dough balls flat.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until light, golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute almond extract for the vanilla extract, if desired.
