Heavenly supereasy carb free almond treats

I can not believe how good these spongy biscuits taste without any sugar or flour. I did add a tablespoon of xylitol, so technically they do have some carbs, but very very little, almost negligible amounts. You can leave out the sweetner and they will still be tasty. And to prove the case, M gobbled them up and gave them to his workmates. So if he considered them good enough to share around the office, well they must have been delicious!
