SHORTBREAD

I have tried so many recipes to try to find a way of making a keto version of shortbread that not only tastes like sweet, buttery, shortbread, but also has the crumbly dry texture of regular shortbread.  This is the best that I can find.  I’ve mixed three different recipes together to find what works best with the ingredients available in the UK.  And here we are…..  At only 1 carb per biscuit, you can have one with every cup of coffee!


INGREDIENTS – For 12 biscuits

  • 140g  Almond Flour
  • 60g Whey Protein Powder
  • 125g Salted Butter
  • 50g Bocha Sweet granulated sugar substitute

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 160*C
  • Line a heavy, flat, baking tray with greaseproof paper
  • Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and combine them thoroughly
  • With a hand whisk, beat the sugar and butter for 2-3 minutes until soft, creamy and thoroughly combined
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sugary butter mixture until it resembles large breadcrumbs
  • Press the dough together with your hands to form a ball
  • Place the dough on your baking sheet and with another sheet of greaseproof paper on top, gently press and roll the dough into an oblong shape roughly 20cm x 15cm and 1.5cm deep.  Use a large knife or spatula to keep straight edges. I tend to cut off any wobbly edges and gently press this into the middle of the dough, so that I have as evenly shaped rectangle as possible as this helps with producing evenly sized and shaped biscuits.
  • Prick the top of the dough with a fork to produce the traditional shortbread markings and then bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on your oven temperature).  When cooked, the shortbread should be evenly coloured golden brown, dry to the touch, but still squidgy when touched gently with a finger.
  • Remove from the oven and whilst hot, cut with a large sharp knife into 12 biscuits by dividing in half lengthways and then into six finger pieces widthways.  Leave to cool completely before moving.
  • Store in an airtight tin, in a cool place, for 3-4 days

Enjoy!

NOTE: I OFTEN ADJUST MY RECIPES WHEN I FIND NEW INGREDIENTS AND WILL UPDATE THE RECIPES ON MY BLOG ACCORDINGLY (RATHER THAN PRODUCING ANOTHER RECIPE), SO PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK BEFORE MAKING.
