These pretty low carb almond flour gluten free thumbprint cookies are easy to make. It’s a basic dough with peanut butter and chocolate topped.
When I was a child, my favorite cookies were called Peanut Butter Blossoms. My mother used the recipe she got off a bag of Pillsbury flour.
The cookies are the popular peanut butter cookies with the “chocolate kiss” on top. I knew I had to figure out a way to make them into a low carb version.
These low carb almond flour gluten free thumbprint cookies are what I came up with. It’s just a basic cookie dough base with added peanut butter.
I used my thumb to make an indent on top of the dough balls. Rather than fill them with an kiss shaped chocolate candy, I used low carb chocolate chips.
You could use small pieces of high cocoa dark chocolate in these almond flour gluten free thumbprint cookies as well. Or, you could make your own homemade sugar free chocolate.
For each cookie indent, I used three small chocolate chips. One day, I may actually try to make these using homemade “kiss shaped” chocolates.
