No Gluten, No Problem
Keto-friendly flours are gluten-free by nature. Almond flour and almond meal are some of the most popular flours for low-carb baking. They have the same nutritional profile but are made with different techniques.
Almond flour is made from blanched almonds, tends to be finer, and is usually found at the grocery store. Almond meal is coarser, has the skins included and can be made at home with whole almonds and a blender or food processor.
This recipe uses almond meal which makes a nice dense cookie with a strong nutty flavor. The chia seeds added to the almonds act as a binder, like an egg. Because almond meal and flour have no gluten, they often make very crumbly baked goods unless they have an additional binder added. In this recipe, the chia seeds give the cookies structure without adding carbs.

Want to turn the warm and cozy flavors up to the next level? Try toasting the whole almonds. Just make sure you let them cool fully a before blending.
For a Swedish inspired twist, try adding ¼ teaspoon each ground cloves and black pepper.
These ginger spice cookies would be delicious as a crumbly topping. Why not try some crumbled over Keto vanilla ice cream or even coconut yogurt for an easy low carb dessert that satisfies without being full of sugar.
