Keto Christmas Cookies

Kid Approved Keto Christmas Cookies

[UPDATED 9/30]

Frosting holiday cookies has been a tradition from the time I was a little girl.  My mom would make these glorious sugar and gluten filled cookies and we’d dump a bunch of powdered sugar into a few bowls, along with milk and food coloring and we’d go to town.

Just because the gluten and sugar are gone, doesn’t mean the tradition needs to be gone.

This tradition never ended.  Not even when I went keto!

These kid approved keto christmas cookies have kept that tradition alive.

The kids love making them, frosting them, and eating them.

My kids like to mix the colors, make patterns and just have fun.  I’m more of a single color per cookie kind of gal.  NOT my kiddos!

How Do You Store Low Carb Christmas Cookies

Once they are completely DRY, you can add them to an airtight container and store them in the fridge. I usually let them sit out on the counter for at least an hour once I’m done frosting them just to make sure the frosting is completely set.

How Long Do Keto Christmas Cookies Last?

They should easily last 3-4 days if properly stored!

What If My Frosting Is The Wrong Consistency?

It is really easy to get the consistency correct if you work slowly.  Start with the desired amount of powdered sweetener.  Then slowly add the almond milk.  Stir well before adding more.

If it is too thick, simply add more almond milk.

If it is too liquidy, add more powdered sweetener.

The longer it sits, the harder and thicker it will become, so make sure you plan to frost the cookies within a reasonable timeframe.

Kitchen Essentials for Keto Sugar Cookies

Woohoo!  Lucky you!

Nothing special needed for these delicious cookies!  Aside from a quality baking sheet, mixing bowls, and hand beater – you should be good to go!

I’m guessing you probably already have all those, right?

If you’ll be frosting them and making your own powdered erythritol (see video below) then you’ll at least need a magic bullet or a small food processor!

Keto Christmas Cookie Sweeteners

I chose to use Lakanto monk fruit and liquid stevia!  The combo of these two together really balance each other out and leave you with no sweetener aftertaste!

ALSO – Do not buy powdered sweetener – you can make your own. If you have regular monk fruit, just throw it in the food processor and – BOOM – you have powdered monk fruit.\

How To Make Keto Christmas Cookies

Let’s make some cookies, shall we?

The first thing you want to do is get your oven preheated to 350 degrees.

Keto Christmas Cookies

In a small bowl, mix together butter, eggs, liquid stevia, vanilla extract and almond extract. Mix it all together nicely with hand beaters.

In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.

Keto Christmas Cookies

Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and continue blending with a hand blender.

You’ll want to cool the dough before baking it.  So wrap it up tightly and store in the fridge for about an hour.

Keto Christmas Cookies

Roll into small (1 inch) balls and line baking sheet.

(optional) Press cookies down a bit so they are flatter.  You don’t need to do this if you want fluffier cookies!

Keto Christmas Cookies

Bake for 14 minutes if you flattened them OR bake for15-18 minutes if you didn’t.

How To Make Keto Christmas Cookie Icing

If you desire to frost your cookies, let’s go through how to make the icing!

For each color you want, add 4-5 tablespoons of powdered monk fruit (or your low carb sweetener of choice) with 2-3 teaspoons of almond milk.  Add the almond milk slowly as you stir.  It can get too liquidy quickly!

Then add your safe food coloring of your choice to make the colors you desire. OR keep them white. 

I made 5 batches with 4 colors (plus white) and it was the perfect amount for this recipe.
