Cottage Cheese Cookie

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 12 minutes

Serves: 12 cookies

Difficulty: Easy

Course: Dessert, Snack

Cuisine: American

kcal: Approximately 120 kcal per serving


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese (full-fat)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener of your choice (e.g., erythritol, stevia, or monk fruit)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened unsalted butter and granulated sweetener. Cream them together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the cottage cheese and vanilla extract to the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until a dough forms. The dough should be soft and slightly sticky.
  6. Using your hands, shape the dough into 12 equal-sized balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Leave enough space between each cookie as they will spread slightly while baking.
  7. Gently press down on each cookie ball with your palm to flatten them slightly.
  8. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until they turn golden brown around the edges.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
