No Bake Almond Butter Cookies are the perfect low carb snack at just 1.5 net carbs per cookie! These no bake treats are perfect for keto meal prep!
These amazing keto no bake almond butter cookies have become a favorite in our house! While I love my other peanut butter version I have always loved the flavor almond butter has, especially when paired with chocolate! For this recipe I made them a bit larger so one cookie is quite filling and will certainly satisfy your sweet tooth!
What are Keto No Bake Cookies?
I first made a smaller peanut butter version of keto no bake cookies on my other site. They have been a huge hit! These no bake cookies have the same qualities of your old favorites! A fudge like chocolate base that is made with coconut oil, creamy almond butter of your choice, keto friendly sweetener, cocoa powder.
Instead of oats that are full of carbs we use a mixture of unsweetened coconut flakes and hemp seeds. I think you will be surprised how well the coconut flakes and hemp seeds substitute for oats. Because neither one has a very strong flavor, but they keep their texture or “bite” well so they work well as a low carb oat substitute.
How many net carbs for each Keto No Bake Cookie?
For this recipe I use a silicone muffin pan to keep these cookies uniform. A silicone muffin pan is preferable because it is flexible and nothing sticks to the pan so these cookies just pop right out!
If you use a standard muffin tin you are going to get about 24 cookies. In this case the cookies come to 1.5 net carbs each and it makes for a very filling dessert.
I store my cookies in the freezer and allow them to thaw for a few minutes before eating. I love having a quick and easy low carb snack when my sweet tooth calls!
