Amaretti are a traditional almond flavoured Italian biscuit which has a soft and pillowy centre encased in a delicious sweet, crispy shell. Traditionally flavoured with Amaretto liquor (hence the name) I have used sugar-free almond extract instead.

These chewy biscuits are almost keto naturally and really only require the substitution of a quality low-carb sweetener for the sugar. This means that you can have piles of the moreish morsels ready to eat in less than an hour, just by raiding your pantry supplies. Enjoy!
