Low-carb Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

Though I do like peanut butter cookies, snickerdoodles and sugar cookies are my favorite. This recipe gets as lose to the real thing as I’ve found without carbs!


  • 1 cup unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp liquid stevia sweetener, or the equivalent measure of a “cup of sugar” of your sweetener of choice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grind the macadamia nuts in a blender/food processor until very fine.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.
  4. Plop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the tray and flatten. Mine were about 2″ around and I got 11 from this recipe. The dough is a bit soft, so wet hands help.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes.
  6. Cool (if you must), and eat.

    Shouldn’t the cinnamon sugar cookies have some sort of fat in them, like butter?

    Sorry, I meant to say coconut oil (not butter). Or do the macadamia nuts provide sufficient fat?

      Good question! I found that the macadamia nuts provide sufficient fat. I’ll try experimenting with adding coconut oil though to see how it goes! I actually haven’t made these in a while and kind of forget exactly what they’re like!
