Carbohydrates: 0.8g


  • 150 g almond flour (if you can find it – fine grind)
  • 100 g butter
  • 50 g erythritol
  • 30 g almond
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp xanthan gum (optionally)


  • erythritol
  • vanilla


  • Take the butter out ahead of time so that it has time to fully soften at room temperature. Turn on the oven to 170°C. Beat the butter with a mixer until fluffy. Add all the ingredients and mix with a spatula until you get a smooth and elastic dough that holds its shape.
  • Pinch off pieces of dough, for example, with a teaspoon, make crescent rolls with your hands and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper. You will have at least 20 crescents.
  • Bake the cookies for about 10 minutes until they are lightly golden, and then let them cool on the baking tray for at least 20 minutes.
    Prepare the sprinkles: crush 2-3 tablespoons of vanilla erythritol into powder and pour it into a bowl. Put all the cooled cookies into the vanilla sweetener, one at a time.


  • Prepare “vanilla sugar” in advance to sprinkle over the finished cookies. Pour the erythritol into a jar with a lid, put the vanilla pod in, and leave it for at least a couple of weeks. As you use up the erythritol, you can add more – the vanilla pod will “work” for many months.
  • The cookies can be stored in a tightly closed container for up to 2 weeks.
