calculator How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs


  • 1/2 cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder (Straight Phosphate, Double Acting)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 10 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1/2 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 tbsp Tap Water
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 tsp, ground Cardamom
  • 4 13/24 serving Atkins Flour Mix


Please use the Atkins recipe for Atkins Flour Mix (or the Gluten Free version) for this recipe.  To make 12 servings you will need 1 1/2 cups of the mix.  If you change the serving size for the recipe to up or downsize it you will need to adjust accordingly.  Each serving of bake mix is 1/3 cup.
  1. Heat oven to 350°F.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.  

  2. Combine 1 1/2 cups baking mix, 1/2 cup almond flourl, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Combine butter and sugar substitute in a large bowl; cream with an electric mixer on high speed until  light and fluffy.  Add egg, water, vanilla, and cardamom; beat on medium speed until combined, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary (mixture may look watery).  Add flour mixture; mix on low speed until dough comes together. 

  3. Divide dough in half, and then in half again. Make 6 equal balls from each quarter portion of dough. Place 12 balls on each baking sheet. Press each gently with  the tines of a fork in a crisscross pattern (optional);  bake until  lightly browned  on the edges, about 10 minutes. Alternatively, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and then roll out between parchment; cut out shapes and bake.  Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.  Makes 2 cookies per serving.
