Low Carb Keto Cookies for Christmas
1. Sugar-Free Keto Vanilla Crescents
These five-ingredient vanilla crescent cookies are nutty, buttery, and 100% scrumptious.
You’ll make them with ground almonds, vanilla whey protein powder, butter, baking powder, and eggs.
They take a little over an hour to prepare and bake, and they’re gluten-free, grain-free, and sugar-free. You won’t be disappointed in them.
2. Keto Snowball Cookies
These may look like tiny, sugar-covered snowballs, but they’re really tiny, alternative sweetener-covered snowball cookies, and believe it or not, they’re just as good.
They’re a bit like Italian wedding cookies, but they’re a little less sweet, nuttier, and of course, rounder.
3. Keto Sugar Cookies
With only eight ingredients, some fun-shaped cookie cutters, and less than 30 minutes, you can have these rich, decadent cookies ready to go.
Each one has only 1.1 net carbs, and the cream cheese, coconut flour, and vanilla and almond extracts give them a wonderfully warm, flavorful taste.
4. Keto Gingerbread Cookies
Sugar-free gingerbread cookies may sound like an impossibility, but with this recipe, you can make them a reality.
All you’ll need is almond flour, various spices, baking powder, monk fruit sweetener, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.
With all the spices in this one – cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and sea salt – you won’t even miss the sugar, and they’ll taste like your favorite spiced gingerbread cookies.
5. Keto White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
If you’re looking for a cookie that tastes and looks like Christmas, give these white chocolate peppermint cookies a shot.
They’re colorful and absolutely gorgeous, and they taste great, too.
They’re chewy and moist, and every bite is filled with a bright burst of peppermint flavor.
Plus, they’re colorful and will brighten up any table.
6. Keto Chocolate Crinkle Cookies
Anytime I see crinkle – or crackle – cookies, I think of Crumbl cookies.
That’s what these look like, and they taste almost as impressive as Crumbl cookies, too.
They’re overflowing with chocolatey yumminess and have the most wonderfully soft and fudgy texture.
If you’re looking for a cookie that’ll let you indulge this holiday season, this is the one you’ll need.
7. Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
Of all the keto cookies out there, keto peanut butter cookies taste the most like their “regular” counterparts.
I think that’s mainly due to their simplistic ingredients.
You can make them with nothing more than peanut butter, an egg, sugar-free vanilla extract, butter, and your favorite low-calorie sweetener.
They’re simple to make, and you can have a dozen ready to serve in less than 30 minutes.
8. Keto Magic Cookies
These cookies are magical in more ways than one. First of all, they have a prep time of just 5 minutes and take less than 30 minutes from start to finish.
Secondly, they feature a ton of great stuff: coconut cream, butter, sugar-free chocolate chips, walnuts, flaked coconut, and more, giving them a rich, tropical flavor that you can’t beat.
Finally, they have only two net carbs per serving! That’s always good news when you’re on the keto diet.
9. Keto Danish Style Butter Cookies
These delightfully buttery cookies have fantastically crispy outsides, soft, chewy insides, and an exceptional amount of buttery and nutty flavor.
They’re sweet, simple, and spectacular.
10. Flourless Peanut Butter Blossoms With Homemade Kisses
These thick, fluffy, and moist cookies have the perfect ratio of peanut butter to chocolate, making every bite incredible.
It takes only 17 minutes to make a dozen cookies, and they’re so full of flavor that you won’t even realize they’re keto-friendly.
11. Keto Linzer Cookies Recipe
Linzer cookies are easily near the top of many people’s favorite holiday cookie recipes.
However, they aren’t strictly low-carb friendly. These keto-friendly versions are the exception.
They’re thin and crispy, but they’re also beautiful and full of vanilla and berry flavor.
Plus, all you’ll need to make them is almond flour, butter, monk fruit sweetener, salt, vanilla, and sugar-free jam.
(The recipe calls for raspberry, but I sometimes vary it up a bit.)
12. Keto Shortbread Cookies
These are delectable shortbread cookies, pure and simple. Whether or not you choose to dip them in the optional chocolate dip, they’re superb.
If you enjoy shortbread, you’ll enjoy these because, aside from the carb count, there’s almost no difference between this recipe and any other shortbread cookie recipe you’ll try.
13. Butter Pecan Cookies
As their name would suggest, these crispy cookies have plenty of buttery pecan flavor and will rival any pint of ice cream you find at the store for yumminess.
It takes a little over 30 minutes to make them, and you’ll love every sweet and crunchy bite.
14. Coconut Flour Ricotta Cookies
If you’re looking for a cookie that’s light, fluffy, moist, and unique, try these coconut flour ricotta cookies.
The orange zest gives them a bright, tangy flavor, which the vanilla and super sweet glaze help tone down a bit.
They’re the ideal combination of contrasting flavors.
15. Keto Christmas Cookies
These insanely good chocolate chip cookies also feature sugar-free red and green “candy buttons” – basically sugar-free M&Ms – for a bit of Christmas spirit.
You can have a dozen of them ready in less than 20 minutes with only five ingredients: cashew butter, an egg, granulated sweetener, baking soda, and sugar-free candy buttons.
I add sugar-free chocolate chips, as well. They’re warm, soft, and delightfully gooey, and they taste so fantastic that even the kiddos will love them.
16. Almond Flour Thumbprint Cookies
These easy-to-make, six-ingredient thumbprint cookies have a lot going for them.
They’re low-carb and keto-friendly, of course, but they’re also vegan and gluten- and sugar-free!
You can make them in less than 30 minutes, and they have a nutty, fruity flavor that’s perfect for the holiday season.
17. Keto Cinnamon Stars
Cinnamon stars are lovely and a German holiday tradition, but they’ll taste amazing no matter what type of cookie cutter you use, so you can stick with the stars or go for something else entirely.
They have a rich cinnamon flavor that’ll remind you of marzipan (especially if you don’t overbake them), and the sugar-free icing is unmatched for sweet and sticky flavor.
18. Chocolate Brownie Cookies
With these chocolate brownie cookies, you’ll get all the rich, indulgent flavor of brownies wrapped up in a sweet, crumbly cookie package.
They taste primarily of chocolate, so as long as you’re a chocolate fan, you’ll appreciate these cookies.
However, there’s also a light peppermint undertone, making them ideal for Christmas.
19. Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies
These cookies have an interesting texture that I thought would be off-putting when I first tried them.
However, I soon realized the taste was so fantastic that the texture no longer bothered me.
They taste precisely how the name makes them sound – like espresso and chocolate.
I prefer to use a chopped chocolate bar instead of chocolate chips, as that gives the cookies bigger, bolder chunks of chocolatey goodness, but the cookies taste great either way.
20. Keto No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies
No-bake cookies are a staple in my house around Christmas because they’re so simple to make. These are no different.
Simply combine your favorite powdered sweetener, cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla extract, almonds, and sugar-free dark chocolate chips in a food processor.
Once you have them blended but with a bit of crunch left in them, roll them into cookie shapes and place them on parchment paper.
Chill them for 30 minutes or more, then serve.
You can’t beat that for simplicity.
