Keto Snowball Cookies
Here we are again! Entering holiday season (at least at the time of writing this we are)! I really wanted to make a quick and easy keto cookie that also had a festive feel. Enter - keto snowball cookies!
Now, while these cookies are holiday favorites, they are also delicious, no bake keto cookies that you can make year round. I know I do!
What I love about these is the hint of maple together with the almond butter. Both together provide the "glue" that holds these beauties together!
I have taken these to holiday parties as well as packed them in my kids' lunch. And my dogs have been known to happily steal them from the counter!
They work for just about every occasion!
Powdered Sweetener vs Shredded Coconut
There's no secret that traditional holiday snowball cookies get rolled in powdered sugar and also have plenty of sugar inside them!
What I found is that rolling them in keto powdered sweetener just makes them TOO sweet. Yes, that can happen! I also find that too many keto desserts have sweeteners in them and I wanted these to be different.
So for this easy no bake keto cookie recipe, I went with natural flavors and natural (mostly) sweeteners. I mean, we have the Lakanto maple flavored syrup, so we can't really file that one under natural, but you can replace that with real maple syrup if you want since it is such a small amount. It actually doesn't add THAT many carbs. Your choice!
BUT, this is all a long winded way of saying I didn't want to use any granular or powdered sweeteners and instead use other fun flavors.
Are Low Carb Snowball Cookies Traditional Holiday Cookies?
They sure are! I don't think a holiday went by that I was in my Grandma's house where there wasn't some form of snowball cookie. Now, hers were different than mine of course, but the cookie was there!
They are little balls that look like snow and are the perfect winter cookie that has been a long holiday favorite among many.
How to Store Keto Snowball Cookies
You will want to store these tasty little keto snowballs in the refrigerator in an airtight container. You really don't want them getting warm as they will start to get soft and possibly lose their shape.
Keep them nice and cold!
How To Make Keto Snowball Cookies
These keto snowball cookies are so easy to make! 10 minutes and you'll be done!
The first thing you'll want to do is add almond flour, 1 cup of shredded coconut, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to a medium bowl. You are not using ALL the shredded coconut. Rather, you will be saving some for later.
Mix well. It will be a little bit of an effort to get it mixed properly. I used my hands and it went pretty quick!
Scoop 1 tablespoon of dough using a cookie scoop for even results. Roll into 10-14 balls (depending on what size balls you make). The nutrition is calculated right in the middle - for 12!
Add the remaining 1/3 cup of coconut to a small bowl.
Roll each ball in coconut pressing gently to make the coconut stick to the outer edge.
