3/4 cup Almond flour
1/4 cup Coconut flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter (soft/room temp)
1/2 cup Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit sweetener
2 Tbsp Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup

Erythritol and Monkfruit are both keto approved sweeteners. I have also made this recipe successfully with other sugar substitutes including:
- Sukrin Gold,
- Classic Lakanto Granulated
- Golden Lakanto Granulate
Pro Tip: Classic cookie recipes (Toll House Recipe) call for both white and brown sugar. For this reason I recommend a 50/50 blend of white and brown sugar substitute.
Use 1/2 a cup of your favorite granulated sweetener or blend:
- 1/4 Cup Swerve or Erythritol/Stevia
- 1/4 Cup Sukrin Gold (brown sugar substitute)
For a total of 1/2 cup sweetener.
Sukrin Gold is a brown sugar substitute that will give the cookies a more golden finish. If you use purely white sugar substitute your cookies will be a bit more pale.
In the case of this particular recipe we were out of Sukrin and opted to use Lakanto Maple Syrup which definitely added a richer flavor to the cookies. However the color was not as brown on top as when we use Sukrin Gold. Still the cookies were delicious and devoured!
