Ingredients for Lemon Pixie Cookies

You will need almond flour, lemon zest, pure vanilla extract, powdered sweetener, baking soda, butter or coconut oil, salt, and lemon juice.

The recipe calls for almond flour or almond meal, but there’s also a nut-free option for those who prefer to make nut-free lemon biscuits.

I don’t recommend substituting another flour for the almond here. Wheat flour, coconut flour, and almond flour all work very differently in baking.

For a fun flavor change, try swapping out the lemon for orange zest and juice.

How to make the Lemon Cookies

Melt the butter or oil, then mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl to form a cookie dough.

Roll into cookie dough balls. I use a cookie scoop to form balls. For softer and chewy cookies, refrigerate the balls until cold or overnight. Otherwise bake right away.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll the balls in powdered sugar or erythritol, if desired, then place the cookie balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes on the middle shelf of the oven.

Press down on the cookies with a spoon to turn them into cookie shapes. Allow to cool completely before handling as they are delicate while still hot.

Prepare cookies with a food scale

If you want to use gram measures instead of cups, here are the quantities to use:

120 grams of almond flour, 15 grams of powdered sugar or erythritol, 30 grams of butter or oil, 10 grams of lemon juice and 5 grams of pure vanilla extract.

Also, remember to add salt, baking soda, and lemon zest.

The pixie recipe was borrowed from my Keto Cookies and Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies, as well as these Chewy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies.

Soft Chewy Lemon Pixie Cookies
  • 1 Cup almond flour (or try these nut-free Lemon Meltaways)
  • 2 tablespoon powdered sugar or erythritol
  • zest of a lemon
  • about 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tablespoon butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • optional powdered sugar or erythritol for rolling
  • Melt butter or oil. Mix all the ingredients into a dough, then roll into balls. For chewy cookies, refrigerate the balls until cool or overnight. Or just bake it. Roll balls in additional powdered sugar if you like. Preheat the oven to 325 F. Bake on a parchment-lined cookie sheet for 10 minutes. Press the balls into cookie shapes with a spoon. Allow to cool completely before handling as they will initially be tender but will firm up considerably as they cool.View nutritional information
