No-Bake Keto Almond Butter Cookies - The Best Keto Recipes (1)

These amazing almond butter no-bake cookies have become a favorite in our house! While I love the peanut butter version, I have always loved the flavor almond butter has, especially when paired with chocolate!

I first made a smaller peanut butter version of keto no bake cookies on my other site. They have been a huge hit!

These almond butter 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, and 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.

Ingredients in Keto Almond Butter Cookies

For this easy no-bake keto dessert, you’ll need the following basic ingredients:

  • Coconut oil
  • Almond butter
  • Cocoa powder
  • Keto-friendly sweetener
  • Vanilla extract

  • Hulled hemp seeds (aka hemp hearts)
  • Sea salt

How to Make Keto Almond Butter Cookies

These low-carb no-bake cookies are a breeze to make! Here are the basic steps:

  1. In a sauce pan, combine the coconut oil and the almond butter over medium low heat.
  2. As the mixture begins to melt, stir until well combined.
  3. Stir in the cocoa powder, vanilla, and the sweetener.
  4. Increase heat to medium. When the mixture has melted and the sweetener is smooth, remove from heat and stir in the coconut flakes and the hemp seeds.
  5. Set aside and allow mixture to cool slightly.
  6. Carefully spoon into silicone muffin tins until 3/4 full.Sprinkle with sea salt
  7. Freeze for 15 minutes until set.

How Many Net Carbs Are in Each Cookies?

If you use a standard muffin tin, you are going to get about 24 cookies. In that case, the cookies come to 1.5 net carbs each and it makes for a very filling dessert.

How to Store Almond Butter Keto Cookies

I store my almond butter no-bake 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!

Tip for Making Keto Almond Butter Cookies

  • For these low-carb no-bake cookies, I use a silicone muffin pan to keep them uniform. A silicone muffin pan is preferable because it is flexible and nothing sticks to the pan so these cookies just pop right out!
  • For this recipe, I made the keto no-bake cookies a bit larger so one cookie is quite filling. Feel free to use a mini muffin pan instead, if desired.

  • 1 cup monkfruit sweetener or other keto-friendly sweetener like Swerve
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup UNSWEETENED coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons hulled hemp seeds also called hemp hearts (you can use an extra 2 tablespoons of coconut flakes if you don't have this. I like the mixed texture and it adds a bit of fiber)

  • Stir in the cocoa powder, vanilla (if using) and the sweetener.

  • Carefully spoon into silicone muffin tins until 3/4 full. Sprinkle with sea salt. Freeze for 15 minutes until set.
