This diet has really taken off in recent years. That means plenty of bloggers, bakers, and chefs have put a lot of effort into these keto Christmas desserts so you can indulge this holiday season, too!
Given that keto requires you to eat low-carb and high-fat foods, you might think that regular sweets are off the table.
But with the proper substitutions, you can eat everything from Christmas cookies to cheesecake.
Cheers to that!
1. Sugar-Free Keto Vanilla Crescents
Would you believe that these sweet, melt-in-your-mouth cookies need just five ingredients? It’s true.
They’re soft, moist, and wonderfully buttery. Using ground almonds makes these gluten-free and tender, and vanilla protein powder means you don’t need to add extra sugar,
Talk about a win-win!
2. Keto Christmas Cookies
With just three grams of carbs each, you can indulge in more than one of these incredible keto Christmas cookies.
Ready in just 15 minutes, they’re loaded with creamy, sugar-free cashew butter.
Even though there’s no added sugar, they’re perfectly crisp on the outside and crazy chewy in the middle.
3. Keto Peppermint Bark Cookies
What could be better than a tender chocolate cookie with a creamy layer of white chocolate bark on top?
The combination of cocoa powder and almond flour keeps things low carb, while the keto-sweetener ensures these cookies aren’t too bitter.
4. Keto Cannoli Cheesecake
Cheesecake is the ideal keto Christmas dessert because it’s high in fat and super easy to make low-carb.
The cannoli filling is luscious and creamy, with a beautiful blend of ricotta and cream cheese. Plus, it has hints of cinnamon and chocolate.
Did I mention it only needs 15 minutes of prep? Enjoy!
5. Keto Peanut Butter Cookies
These cookies are crunchy on the outside and super tender on the inside. They’re sweet and salty, and as you only need three ingredients, you can make them any time!
You can even make these vegan by swapping the egg for ground chia seeds.
Dip them in dark chocolate and sprinkle some chopped nuts over the top to serve.
6. Peanut Butter Blossoms
Chocolate and peanut butter go hand in hand, and luckily, keto allows you to indulge in both!
On their own, the cookies are perfect nutty bites. But to make them extra sinful, you’ll need to add chocolate.
Though you can’t get sugar-free Hershey Kisses, they do make sugar-free peanut butter cups and chocolate bars.
7. Best Easy Keto Pumpkin Cookies
Pumpkin cookies are notoriously moist, and they’re even better when you add dark chocolate chips and nuts in the mix.
Pumpkin is high in fiber and reasonably low in carbs, making it ideal for these keto Christmas cookies.
Not only does it add a lovely orange hue, but it also keeps things extra tender. Just remember to get sugar-free pumpkin puree if you buy it canned.
8. Keto Snowball Cookies
Snowball cookies are usually made with lots of butter and even more sugar. Not very keto-friendly, right?
If you’ve been waiting for a recipe to try sugar-free powdered sweetener, now’s your chance. At just 1.2 grams of carbs per serving, these gluten-free cookies will satisfy any sweet tooth.
You can even make them vegan with dairy-free butter.
9. (Extra Crisp!) Keto Gingerbread Cookies
Just because you’re eating keto doesn’t mean you should have to miss out on one of Christmas’s best treats.
These gingerbread cookies are crisp and perfectly spiced, plus they’re so easy to make soft. Just roll the dough thicker and pull them from the oven before they turn too dark.
Decorate with keto royal icing or keep it simple with a light dusting of powdered sugar substitute.
10. Christmas Tree Cupcakes Low Carb
Low-carb cupcakes are easier to make than you think, and with just one gram of carbs each, they’re ideal for keto-ers.
Try out a few powdered sugar substitutes when making the frosting until you find the one you like best.
If you can’t find keto sprinkles, try chopping some sugar-free candies instead.
11. Keto Thumbprint Cookies
Like any good thumbprint cookie, these are soft, sweet, and full of nutty flavor. The secret to keeping them insanely moist is all about the cream cheese.
The best part about this cookie dough is that you can make it right in the food processor, so it’s ready after just a few short pulses.
Of course, you can’t use regular jam as it contains far too much sugar.
Instead, try buying ready-made sugar-free jam (any flavor you like) or make your own with chia seeds for added goodness.
12. Keto Peanut Butter Pie
Starting with a simple no-bake chocolate crust, this pie is every bit the fantastic peanut butter dessert you’ve been dreaming of.
As for the filling, it’s a super thick and sweet blend of cream cheese, peanut butter, and heavy cream.
Serve it frozen or chilled, and don’t be afraid to drizzle some extra peanut butter over the top. Also, to make this extra special, top it with sugar-free peanut butter cups.
13. Keto Cinnamon Stars (German Christmas Cookies)
The classic German cookies are lightly spiced and often use almond or hazelnut meal in place of flour.
So making them keto couldn’t be easier.
Roll them thick if you want a softer cookie and drizzle with dark chocolate to serve. I like them dipped in keto white chocolate and sprinkled with dark chocolate shavings.
14. Mini No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake
This rich and creamy no-bake keto chocolate cheesecake is ideal for single portions or for serving at your next holiday dinner party.
Even if you think you only like baked cheesecakes, I’ll bet this recipe will change your mind.
And if you need extra, feel free to double the recipe and make a larger cheesecake.
15. Keto Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet cake should be bright, sweet, crazy-moist, and loaded with tangy cream cheese frosting.
This keto version delivers in spades, and that vibrant color makes it the perfect addition to your holiday baking list.
16. Low-Carb Santa Hat Brownies
Strawberries are high in fiber, low in carbs, and loaded with health benefits. They’re also colorful, sweet, and extra tasty when served with chocolate.
To serve, just cut the low-carb brownie with a small circular cutter and “glue” the fruit on top with a bit of cream cheese frosting.
17. Keto Fruit Cake
This keto fruit cake is super moist and perfectly sweet. Unlike some Christmas cakes, this isn’t cloying, which means you can indulge in more than one slice.
Although certain fruits aren’t keto-approved, you can get away with using just a few bright cranberries. They’ll add a little sweetness and enough color, plus they’ll pair well with orange.
Alternatively, try to find dried plums or blueberries. They’re much lower in sugar than raisins or dates.
18. Gingerbread and Walnut Rum Cake
Beers, cocktails, and wine coolers are strictly off-limits when doing keto. But zero-carb spirits like rum, tequila, and vodka are definitely on the table.
Between the rum, stem ginger, pea protein isolate, and fine flax meal flour, this is a keto-ers Christmas dream!
Just remember to get keto-approved rum and not something with added sugar.
19. Low-Carb Eggnog Pie
If you’ve had enough of pumpkin spice, why not try this creamy eggnog pie this year?
If you ask me, eggnog tastes just like melted ice cream, and this pie is no exception. Lightly spiced with nutmeg and rum extract, you won’t miss that boring pumpkin pie one bit.
20. Keto Pecan Crescent Cookies
Almond flour is readily available and easy to make at home, but the flavor can be too mild for some.
So, if you want something nuttier, you have to try these incredible crumbly and buttery pecan cookies.
The glaze is optional, but I think it rounds everything out flawlessly. Of course, you could always dip them in dark chocolate instead.
21. Keto Christmas Crack – Caramel Pecan Bark
Christmas crack is just as addictive as it sounds, thanks to the creamy caramel, rich chocolate, and buttery pecans.
It might only need a handful of ingredients, but I think this will be the top dessert at your next Christmas party.
Plus, you can so easily wrap this up in shards for sweet gifts.
22. Keto Chocolate Swiss Roll Cake Chocolate Roulade
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a chocolatey yule log, and this keto recipe is sure to be a hit.
It might be sugar and gluten-free, but it’s deeply flavorful and wonderfully light and fluffy. Also, there are only a couple of grams of carbs per serving!
Serve it with a simple dusting of powdered sugar substitute, or use the recipe below to make some cute little mushrooms!
23. Sugar-Free Peppermint Meringue Cookies
Meringue is well-known as a gluten-free option for desserts, but it also contains a decent amount of sugar.
So, for this keto-meringue recipe, you’ll use granulated Lakanto monkfruit.
Add peppermint extract for flavor, or leave them plain and pipe into the shape of your choice.
24. Keto Chocolate Cake
Flourless chocolate cake has a reputation for being thick and dense, though extremely rich and tasty.
If you want flourless and a light and fluffy crumb, you’ll have to try this recipe.
It’s very straightforward and can be made in one bowl. Just stir everything together and bake!
25. Keto Sugar Cookies
These keto sugar cookies are delightfully buttery, and the dough is more than firm enough for you to roll, cut, and decorate.
The cream cheese will keep these tender, and once they’re baked and cooled, you can make keto royal icing to decorate.
26. Coconut Flour Ricotta Cookies
These super tender Italian-inspired cookies are just what you need after a long day out in the cold.
Lightly flavored with orange zest, they’re ultra-light, and thanks to the ricotta, they’re incredibly creamy and tender.
Feel free to add chopped dark chocolate to the dough or drizzle with orange glaze. Just mix orange juice with powdered sugar substitute.
27. Low-Carb Gingerbread Cupcakes (Sugar-Free)
As far as gingerbread goes, it should be a little sweet but mostly spiced. With that in mind, you’ll need plenty of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
But don’t worry, the sugar-free caramel frosting more than makes up for the lack of sweetness in the cake. Make it yourself, or buy sugar-free caramel.
