  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent sticking. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter and maple syrup, stirring until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Add the vanilla extract for a touch of flavor and mix well.

Next, incorporate the almond flour and a pinch of salt into the wet ingredients. Stir until a dough forms, ensuring it is well combined.

Shape the dough into small balls, then flatten each one onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between the cookies to allow for spreading.

Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Once done, let them cool on a wire rack before serving. These almond flour shortbread cookies make a delicious, nutritious snack or dessert.
