Keto Sugar Cookies

It's that time of year again for keto sugar cookies. I mean, is there really a single time of year? These cookies are perfect year-round for any occasion, truly!

These fluffy keto sugar cookies have so much flavor and the chewiness is next level! They are also gluten free, of course.

I had so many ideas for toppings, but I had to settle on 4, otherwise, this post would have gotten too long.

But I hope you know that pretty much any topping you fancy will do beautifully on top of these lovely keto cookies.

Can I Roll Out The Dough?

I have not tried this. Having said that, I'm pretty sure you could. The dough consistency should allow it.

You do not want to roll these thin though. Keep them nice and thick, use a cookie cutter, and have some fun!

If you want a tried and true sugar cut out cookie that you can roll out and cut, head on over to the recipe for keto cut out cookies.

Toppings For Keto Sugar Cookies

Let's talk about topping options! I have 4 lovely ideas for you!

Sugar Free Peppermint Candies

I ordered a bag of these on Amazon and was pleasantly surprised. You can crush them by pounding them or by sticking them in a blender.

I put them in the blender to get the candies crushed fine. By hand would produce larger chunks, so that part is up to you!

Sugar Free Peanut Butter Cups

This one was probably my favorite! You can also order these on Amazon.

All I did was slice them up with a knife into small chunks. I made the mistake of trying to "pulse" them in the blender to break some chunks and all it did was pulverize them into dust.

Take the time and cut them yourself!

Chocolate Chips and Pecans

I took some pecans, threw them in the blender, and pulsed a few times. I poured them into a bowl and added some Lily's Chocolate Chips.

You could also put the pecans in a baggie and pound them. That would work too!

This was my second favorite flavor pairing!

Sugar Topping

And lastly, we have the traditional "sugar" topping. This is just a granular Allulose and monk fruit blend that I rolled them in! You can get it here. It is by far my favorite keto sweetener.

How To Store Keto Sugar Cookies

As soon as you are done devouring these delightful keto sugar cookies, you will want to store them in an airtight container and put them in the fridge.

They will last for at least 3-4 days if stored properly. I made a double batch and they lasted longer for me, but I always like to be safe.

Why Do I Need To Chill The Dough For Keto Sugar Cookies?

Colder dough does not spread out as much as warmer dough. There are other reasons but that is the main one.

We want these cookies to be nice and fluffy, so chilling for even 10 minutes (if you use cold butter) is sufficient.

How To Make Keto Sugar Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. I used 3 sheets and put 12 per sheet. You could get away with putting them closer than I did, however, since they don't spread out much at all.

How to Make Keto Sugar Cookies

In a small bowl, mix together butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Using hand beaters, mix well. If your butter is a little colder, it will be chunky and that is fine!

In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, oat fiber, sweetener, and salt.

How to Make Keto Sugar Cookies

Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and continue blending with a hand blender. Using your clean hands, give it one final mix and just squish it between your fingers a little. This helps mix in the colder butter a bit more.

Cover dough and cool in the refrigerator for 10-60 minutes (less time is needed if your butter is colder).

Roll into small (1 inch) balls and then roll in the optional topping.

Press cookies down a bit so they are flatter.  If you are topping with peanut butter cup chunks, you can press them into the top at this point.

Best Sweetener for Keto Sugar Cookies

I have found the best keto sweetener for baking is the Besti brand blend of allulose and monk fruit. It is non gmo and high quality. It also mimics traditional sugar both in taste and its effects on baking. You can try it out here and use code TRINA10 for a 10% discount.
