  • ⅔ cup Almond flour
  • ¼ cup Unflavoured protein powder
  • ¼ cup Coconut flour
  • ¾ teaspoon Xanthan gum
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Large eggs
  • ½ cup Sugar substitute I use an erythritol / monkfruit blend
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 F, line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • If you’re using a tip and coupler with your pastry bag, set it up with a ½” round tip.
  • In a small bowl, combine the almond flour, protein powder, coconut flour, xanthan gum, and salt, seta side.
  • Carefully separate the eggs – the whites into the bowl of a stand mixer, and the yolks into a large mixing bowl. Be very careful to not get ANY yolk into the whites.
  • Using the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites until foamy.
  • SLOWLY add ¼ cup of the sugar substitute, as it’s whipping.
  • Continue whipping until stiff, glossy peaks form.
  • In the other bowl, whisk the egg yolks together with the remaining sugar substitute, until pale yellow.
  • Add vanilla extract, continue beating until combined. Set aside.
  • Gently fold egg yolk mixture into the egg whites, just until mostly combined. Add almond flour mixture, gently fold in until combined.
  • Don’t over beat it – you want the egg white structure mostly intact!
  • Spoon batter into prepared pastry bag. If you’re not using a coupler, cut enough of the tip off to allow for a ½” opening.
  • Pipe 3 – 3 ½” long fingers on the prepared baking pan, leaving an inch between them.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes. You’ll know they’re done when they’re just starting to turn golden around the edges and have firmed up.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Once cool, dust with powdered erythritol if desired, and store in an airtight container.


Sugar alcohol accounts for slightly under 3 grams of carbs per cookie, leaving each cookie at under 1 gram of net carbs.
