Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and place baking parchment on a baking sheet.

Combine eggs and cream cheese in a bowl and set wet ingredients aside.

In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

Grate the butter into the dry ingredients and mix lightly with a fork. Once mixed, slowly add in the eggs and cream cheese mixture and stir to combine.
