Greek Keto Kourabiedes

These powdered cookies are found in many cultures and they may have originated in Persian or Turkish cuisines, however, these evolved in my book to be the Greek Wedding Cookies, or Greek Christmas Cookies, perhaps because of the white powder. I have tested many recipes and this one seems to be the best keto version so far. I hope you enjoy.

  • Baking Sheet


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/4 Tsp. liquid monk fruit

  • 1/2 Tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbsp cognac or brandy

  • 1 cup walnuts

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

  • 1/2 cup confectioners monk fruit, divided

  • 1 cup slivered or sliced almonds


Preheat oven to 300° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine the melted butter, egg, monk fruit, cognac and vanilla extract in a large bowl and set aside.
Add walnuts to a food processor and pulse until ground. You basically want to have a walnut flour. Pour the walnut flour into a bowl and add the coconut flour and 1/4 cup powdered monk fruit and pulse until combined.
In two parts, add dry mixture to the wet and whisk to combine. Add the slivered almonds. If the dough is too sticky, then add 1 to 2 tablespoons of additional coconut flour and combine.
Place the dough in between 2 silicone pads and roll flat, but not too thin. Using your favorite cookie cutter, cut out about 20-25 cookies. Or, you can make 14-15 equal sized balls. Arrange them on your baking sheet. Don’t worry as they will not spread in the oven.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Allow to cool for 5 minutes, and then roll or dust using a mini strainer to the (still warm) balls/cookies in the remaining 1/4 cup powdered monk fruit. Place them on a wire rack and allow them to cool for about 30 minutes before eating.
Enjoy! Bon Appetit! Kali Orexi!


Depending on how thin or thick you roll the dough, you may want to set your timer for 20 minutes and start checking your cookies or your rolled balls. You want them to be a golden brown color...not burnt. So play close attention at the last 10 minutes of your baking.
