Keto Madeleine Cookies

These are pretty close to the real deal, I have to say.

A cross between a cake and cookie. Just like the one you can find at your favorite coffee shop, but keto friendly!


  • 1 cup blanched almond flour (I like this brand)
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder (I like this brand)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs (room temp is best)
  • 1/4 cup full fat sour cream
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted.
  • 1/4 cup erythritol (I like this brand)
  • 2 tspn pure vanilla extract  (I like this brand)
Optional Toppings


  1. With the paddle attachment on a stand mixer or a hand held mixer beat the eggs, sour cream, vanilla extract and the erythritol on medium high for 7 minutes until pale and frothy.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the almond flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Using a rubber spatula, slowly fold in the dry ingredients into the egg mixture.
  4. Gently fold in the warm (not too hot, not cool) melted butter. Use big strokes. The batter should be thick!
  5. Once combined, cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Don’t skip this part. The cookies will not be the same!
  6. Preheat oven to 350° F. Place rack in the center.
  7. Grease madeleine pan with melted butter and a paper towel. There should only be a thin layer of butter, be sure to not have any butter pooled at the bottom of the mold.
  8. With a small cookie scoop or with a small spoon drop the amount equal to 2 leveled tablespoons, into the center of 8 of the molds.
  9. Bake for 20-23 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the center is firm but still bounces back.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool down for 5 minutes in the pan. Once cooled the cookies should fall right off the pan when you flip it over gently.

Optional Dipping and Topping

  1. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between. You may also use a double boiler with simmering water, stirring often.
  2. Once smooth and melted, remove chocolate from heat.
  3. Dip cooled cookie into desired amount of chocolate and toppings.

  1. My batter looked runny not thick. Waiting for it to chill. I absolutely used every specific ingredient you mentioned. I used my stand mixer with my paddle and changed over to my whisk because it was not foaming you . Thoughts?

    1. Hi! Not really sure how it could get runny with only 2 eggs and 2 tbsp butter as liquid ingredients.

      I get tagged on these all the time on Instagram and have never had anyone tell me the batter was runny.

      Perhaps you misread a measurement? I’m sorry I’m not more help! Hard to say from here.

  2. Hello my dear! The cookies themaelves taste amazing! I used a non stick madeleines pan and they stuck to it even after cooled. 🙁 the only thing I changed was the sweetener, I used swerve. I still at them and dipped them into chocolate 🤤

    1. Hi Joelle,

      We’re you still able to grease the pan with butter like the instructions mentioned? That part is very important, even when using a nonstick pan. Glad you still enjoyed them!
