  • Combine the almond flour, pecans, 5 tablespoons of powdered sweetener, melted butter and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. The mixture will be crumbly but it should hold together when pressed between 2 fingers.
  • Roll the dough into 1 tablespoon balls and set aside on a plate. Place the cookies in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F and line a 9x13 sheet tray with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Place the cookies on the tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool for 10 minutes.
  • Place the 1 cup of powdered sugar in a shallow bowl and roll each cookie in the powdered sweetener. Repeat this step 2-3 times until the cookies have a nice coating.
  • Keep the cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.



  • NUT FREE KETO SNOWBALL COOKIES: Sunflower seed flour is your best option.  Use it as a 1 for 1 substitute for almond flour.
