These keto lemon cookies are soft and chewy, bursting with lemon flavor. They are like little bites of sunshine and are just the most refreshing keto cookies. And best of all, each cookie has only 1 NET CARB!


Cookie Dough:

Heaping 2 Cups (236g) Blanched Almond Flour

½ Cup (80g) Confectioners Swerve, sifted

½ Teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Large Egg

½ Cup (112g) Salted Butter, Melted

1 Teaspoon PURE Vanilla Extract

Juice from 1/2 a medium lemon (30g)


Heaping 1/4 Cup (40g) confectioners swerve 

Juice from 1/2 medium lemon (30g)

1/2 tbsp. (7g) almond milk


  1. Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix until combined. 
  2. Add all of the wet ingredients into a medium-sized bowl and mix them until combined.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and use a spatula to form a cookie dough. Refrigerate the dough for 45 minutes.
  4. Preheat your oven to 300°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Use a tbsp. sized cookie scoop to form about 16 cookies and use your hand/fingers to shape/flatten them.
  6. Add the cookies to the sheet and bake for 15-18 minutes. They should feel soft when they first come out of the oven.
  7. Let them cool on the tray until they reach room temperature. Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling until they've set - I like to leave them overnight.
  8. Once they've set, add all the icing ingredients to a shallow dish, mix them, and then dip each cookie into the icing.
  9. Transfer the cookies back to the baking sheet and let the icing solidify - I like to refrigerate them during this process.
  10. Then once the icing hardens, the cookies are done!
