Soft and chewy almond cookies that are just 2 ingredients. These cookies are so easy to make. The cookie dough is mixed using just a spoon and takes less than five minutes to prepare. These cookies are also keto-friendly and low carb.

I created these chewy almond cookies by mistake while trying to make something else. But it was a happy mistake because I really enjoy these simple cookies when I’m craving something sweet. They are firm on the outside and soft and chewy when you bite in.


  • Superfine almond flour
  • Sugar Free Maple Flavored Syrup

The cookies are made with almond flour and maple flavored syrup. The syrup provides sweetness and acts as the binding agent. I used Lakanto sugar free maple flavored syrup, but any sugar free syrup should work. However if you use a thicker syrup, it will be more difficult to mix and you may need to knead the dough to get the syrup to spread evenly across the almond flour.

Cookie Sweetness

These cookies are not super sweet on their own. They are about the level of sweetness of a biscuit cookie or shortbread cookie. If you prefer sweeter, you can add sugar free chocolate chips, drizzle them with chocolate, or dust them with powdered sweetener (like powdered Swerve or powdered erythritol).

  • 1 cup superfine blanched almond flour
  • 3 tbsp lakanto sugar free maple flavored syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Add almond flour and syrup to a medium bowl. Use a spoon to mix until the ingredients are evenly combined and dough comes together. Make sure your maple syrup moistens all of the almond flour.
  • Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, scoop dough balls and place onto prepared baking sheet, spread 2 inches apart. Using the back of the spoon or the palm of your hand, flatten the dough balls until they become thick round disks about 3/8 inch thick.
  • Bake cookies for about 12-15 minutes or until edges turn golden brown. Let cookies cool completely before removing them from baking sheet. Store uneaten cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.


  • These cookies are not super sweet. If you prefer sweeter, you can dust with powdered erythritol or Swerve, add a few drops of Stevia extract to the dough, or drizzle the cookies with melted sugar free chocolate.
  • I used Kirkland Signature superfine almond flour.*
  • I used Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup* Lakanto has a very thin liquid consistency which makes it easier to mix. If you use a thicker syrup with a honey-like consistency, it will be very sticky and you will need to add a little more and knead the dough in your hands to get the syrup to spread and evenly moisten the almond flour.

  1. I saw the recipe in my emails and less than 10 minutes later decided to try them.
    For those wondering if you could use real/pure maple syrup, yes. It is what I used. Stuck to the 3tbs. but had to sprinkle in a bit more flour. I used a pinch of salt too. Thought maybe a drop of vanilla but I tasted the dough and changed my mind.
    Didn’t have parchment paper so I used waxed and they did stick to it, had to peel it off, no harm done. 13 minutes in my oven was a tiny bit too long.
    They were crispy outside, chewy inside at first. Later in the evening when I had them with tea they were crispy all the way through, which was fine with me. I found them to be just a bit too sweet for me, but not so sweet I won’t eat them. Next time just a tad less syrup. Also maybe add some chopped nuts. I got 16 cute cookies. Not bad for really less then half hour start to finish.

  2. MMM yummy little cookie. Since you said ‘not as sweet’ I tasted the dough. Decided to add a pinch of salt. That brought out the sweet more. Will make these again. Thank you

  3. Loved these especially after baking! My oven only needed 13 minutes. Watch carefully as bottom can be overdone. Delicious! I computed 1 net carb though for 1

  4. I just commented on the 2 Ingredient shortbread cookies (that I love!). Does this have to be sugar free maple flavored syrup or can I use real maple syrup? Thank you in advance!

    • We haven’t tried it with pure maple syrup, but we think it should work as long as the syrup has a similar consistency to the sugar-free kind (not too thick).

  5. I have been on Keto for two months now and have been dying for a baked good. These are delicious! I am enjoying reading through your website. I have a list of recipes I want to try.

  6. Super easy and tasty!

  7. At first bite of first cookie, I wasn’t too sure as I tend ti prefer crispy cookies. The next day, the second one was so satisfying! It is soft and yet a bit chewy. The maple almost makes it taste like it has coconut flavor as well. I’m wondering how toasted coconut incorporated into the dough might be a good recipe for another cookie with 3 ingredients!

    • I’m glad you liked them! I think you can add a little bit of shredded coconut in there for some coconut flavor and texture.

  8. Your recipes seems quick and tasty. I will try

  9. Wow, I didn’t believe they would be delicious but they are! I haven’t had a crunchy cookie in almost 3 years! These are fabulous, to make a little indulgent I slather on the butter! Yummy!

  10. Recipe sounds great. I don’t see the protein grams listed. 

    • if there is less than 1 gram of protein per cookie then it won’t show up on the nutrition label, so I am guessing that is why it’s not on there. But you can always double check with another nutritional calculator.

  11. Hi. I’m not on keto, but would like to make these. Would agave nectar consistency be comparable to Lakanto and do you think it would work in this recipe??

  12. Thank you I like easy recipes I am on a very tight budget also trying to lose weight
