Kid Approved Keto Christmas Cookies

Last year, the holiday season was a bit of a bummer when it came to baked goods.  I had just started keto and could not figure out this keto baking thing. 

Pre-Keto, I was a pretty darn good baker but I was lost with keto at first.  So lost!  But now?  I got this figured out and am in the flow! I decided on a whim to whip up some sugar cookie style keto Christmas cookies. 

My kids are pretty critical when it comes to my baking since they know how well I *can* bake.  Every time I make a dessert, my 5-year-old asks “is it keto, gluten-free, or regular”?  Which I get a kick out of every time.

These keto “sugar” cookies are light and fluffy.  They are good without the frosting!

If you’ve never made traditional sugar cookie frosting, well, you are in for a treat. 

Normally it is simply powdered sugar mixed with the right proportions of milk to get the desired consistency.  I took the same concept here and used powdered erythritol with almond milk.  

 

Kitchen Essentials

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!

Sweeteners

I chose to use erythritol 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 erythritol – you can make your own. If you have regular erythritol, just throw it in the food processor and – BOOM – you have powdered erythritol.

 

Tip

Make sure to choose your best, safe food coloring for you keto Christmas cookies OR just keep them white!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together butter, eggs, liquid stevia, vanilla extract and almond extract.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  4. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and blend with a hand blender.
  5. Roll into small (1 inch) balls and line baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes and then cool on a cooling rack.

Frosting

  1. If you desire to frost them, the frosting is 1 tablespoon of almond milk for each 5 tablespoons of powdered erythritol. Then add your safe food coloring of your choice to make the colors you desire. This isn't an exact science, so add more or less powdered erythritol to get the desired consistency. I made 3 batches with 3 colors and it was the perfect amount for this recipe.
  2. Frost!
