Low Carb Almond Cookies

Recently, I tripped across this gorgeous food photo over at Food Foto Gallery and was quite enamored with the simplicity of the recipe that could easily be made low carb.

Almond Cookies for Passover are probably not officially Passover approved with my modification of the low carb sugar substitute; however, one could easily just use real sugar.

My favorite part of this recipe is the simplicity of flavor and ease of preparation. What you see is what you get … Almond Cookies.

Great for diabetics, low carbers or anyone not wanting to overindulge in processed carbs.PrintLow Carb Almond Cookies
