These low carb and keto breakfast cookies are filled with almonds and hemp hearts and are so delicious! They are perfectly sweet and the perfect grab and go keto breakfast.
Whoever came up with the idea of a breakfast cookie is a genius. I love the idea of eating cookies for breakfast and there is absolutely no guilt in these cookies because they are keto and low carb. I want to eat these Keto Breakfast Cookies every day!

The base of these cookies are very similar to my keto chocolate chip cookie recipe. I used almond flour, butter, eggs, vanilla, Swerve sweetener, baking powder, and salt. I also added in a little coconut flour and to make these more filling with some protein, I added sliced almonds and hemp hearts.
This isn't my first time using hemp hearts in a recipe and it will definitely not be my last. They are an amazing little superfood that have almost no carbs, and they are packed with protein.
So we mix all of those ingredients together in a large bowl. I then used a cookie scoop to make 16 perfect little cookies. I scooped them all out onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
I then flattened them out by pressing them down a little with my fingers. This ensures even baking.
I baked them for exactly 13 minutes. You will know they are done when they start to brown around the bottom edges.
Now let them sit to firm up and try not to eat them all...they are so delicious!
I keep these stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to 1 week. I also love to freeze them! After they are finished baking, leave them on the sheet pan and put them in the freezer for 1 hour, then put them in freezer safe container and store in the freezer.

These are GREAT! I always have a batch in the freezer for a quick breakfast or even a quick pick me up in the afternoon. I have added a heaping tablespoon of Oat Fiber and Ground Flax Seed to mine. I like the texture. This recipe is a WINNER!
I love the hemp heart crunch in these breakfast cookies! I keep some of these in the freezer when I need a quick breakfast on the go. Thank you for all of your yummy recipes, Jennifer!
When I put this recipe into my fitness pal, each cookie is coming up with 11.9 carbs and 2.2 fiber for 9.2 net carbs. Can you help me figure out what I put in incorrectly because I’m not getting 2 net carbs!
My Fitness Pal probably added the carbs from the sugar alcohol on the sweetener but it has zero net carbs

These cookies are so good! I was worried because I've tried keto sugar cookies and keto Pecan Sandies. I hated both of them. I don't remember if they were your recipes or not. Sorry, if they were! Funny thing is they all seem to have almost the exact same ingredients, so I don't know what the difference is. I did add some keto dried cranberries, and I used half erythritol and half monk fruit sweetener. I used the Hemp hearts, too. The cookies might be a touch too sweet, but I really like these. I'm hoping my hubby will like them. I'm trying to get him to do keto, but he's so addicted to sugars and carbs. I'm trying to find recipes that he will like and eat. I just have to wait for him to get home and try one. Thank you for this recipe!
Oh my lord. This was so delicious!!! I did add some shredded chicken thighs to add some protein and I tripled the recipe so I could meal prep. Wow!!!

So good! I was sure I had Hemp seeds and to my surprised I had none! Replaced them with 2 Tablespoon of Chia seeds, They were so deliscious, now can't wait to try it with Hemp seeds.
Thank you Jennifer for all your amazing recipes!
I made these today. I used half the sugar. I also added cinnamon and blueberries. They came out fantastic. 😍😍
These are fantastic Jennifer. I just ate one still a little warm from the oven. Thank you so much!
So delish ! Makes keto a dreamy diet ! Thank you so so much
Can you substitute greek yogurt for the butter in this recipe?
Not sure, never tried it!
Love it love it love it. Thank you so much for this recipe. It is super easy and taste delicious x
Is it possible to make these using only almond flour? I don’t have any coconut flour.
Delicious but my mixture didn't look as dry as yours. I'm not sure why. I will make these again and see if the mixture is the same. My cookies spread but still yummy and filling.
Cookies for breakfast sounds good to me! A great keto option.

I just love this recipe! So easy to make and so satisfying. Will definitely make again. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂
Cookies for breakfast, yes please! These are fantastic and filling too. Perfect for something a little sweet and special to start your day.
These cookies look delicious! Thanks for the inspiration!
I have to say I was skeptical when I saw the "breakfast cookie" title, but I see you have managed to pack in some nutrition along with tasty cookies!
I had w side of ricotta mixed w some almond butter, and used half the sweetener, yum!
They were really good, we sprinkled cinnamon on them, will definitely make again. Thank you
I used pecans and golden sweetner and added almond and vanilla extract...so good
These were tasty but way too sweet. I made them again and used half the Swerve - much better.
Is there supposed to be a sweetener in the ingredients list?
Yes but I forgot to add it! It is 2/3 cup granulated Swerve. Thank you for bringing that to my attention!
Cookies for breakfast? I'm in!
Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
