I've made many keto cookies over the years but there's something nice about making a simple recipe for chewy blueberry cookies.
The key to the softness and overall flavor is the brown Swerve. I've only used it a few times but when I have, it is been a great success (check out my low carb pecan pie brownies!). You can even find it Whole Foods!
So I was super happy with how these cookies turned out. My husband is super sensitive to sweeteners and was very impressed.

How to Make Low Carb Blueberry Cookies
Melt some butter (microwave is best!), and add it to a stand mixer bowl with the brown Swerve. Beat until fully combined.
Add a beaten egg and vanilla extract and beat again. Next, add fine almond flour, a pinch of salt and guar gum or xanthan gum – these zero carb stabilizers will help the baked cookies stay soft and chewy.
Beat the mixture in the stand mixer until a cohesive dough has formed. It will be sticky and perhaps looser than regular cookie dough. Portion out the dough into eight scoops onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Place three blueberries on each cookie.
Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges start to darken. Remove from the oven – the cookies will still look very soft.
Leave to cool for ten minutes then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container for up to three days.
