This week was the kind of week for making low carb, gluten-free shortbread cookies. I’ve been so excited and wanting to celebrate, because our living room finally got a major, much-needed pick-me-up. Not only did we get brand new plush carpet, but we also swapped out our old, bulky furniture with a modern, two-tone leather couch featuring an attached chaise and matching coffee table. Who knew smaller furniture could open up a room so much? Now I’m on the hunt for a statement wall art piece, fresh decor for our built-ins, and a glass dining room table. Revamping the space where we spend most of our time has been so much fun.
This new look feels like it’s just in time, too, because it makes me that much more excited to host our annual New Year’s get-together! We may not celebrate Christmas at our house, but I’m still aaaaall about the holiday season.
One of the best parts about the holidays? It means it’s cookie season! Fortunately, in my book that does not have to mean weight gain or a sugar high followed by a crash. There are plenty of sugar-free, gluten-free, and low carb options that taste just as delicious – if not better. Like my low carb, gluten-free shortbread cookies.
These low carb, gluten-free shortbread cookies are among my favorites. They are made with almond flour, which is basically just blanched ground almonds and known to be a classic low carb baking staple. Not only do almonds have a healthy boost of protein, they are also very low in carbohydrates and inherently gluten-free. I recently discovered that Bob’s Red Mill makes a much more finely ground blanched almond flour than their regular almond meal, and am totally in love with it.
I love making these low carb, gluten-free shortbread cookies for the holidays because they are so unbelievably quick and easy. Only four ingredients and ten minutes of prep time – who doesn’t love that?! Plus, everyone I’ve offered them to seems to be a big fan, whether they are trying to eat healthier or not. Why not make them in advance for your next get-together?
