Kid-Approved Keto Christmas Cookies

No matter if you're into pastel pinks and baby blues or vibrant reds and greens, this keto Christmas cookie recipe is sure to bring joy and deliciousness to your family gatherings! Plus, it's a hit with all ages.

Growing up, frosting holiday cookies was such a fun tradition in my house. My mom used to bake these incredible cookies, loaded with sugar and gluten though, and then it was our turn to take over. We'd gather around the kitchen table with bowls of powdered sugar, milk, and a rainbow of food coloring, ready to let our creativity run wild.

But here's the thing, removing to gluten and sugar doesn't mean we have to say goodbye to this cherished tradition. These keto-friendly Christmas cookies are a testament to that, proving you can maintain the joy and bonding of holiday baking, minus the traditional ingredients. They've received the seal of approval from the toughest critics: kids.

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.

How Do You Store Low-Carb Christmas Cookies

Once completely dry, you can add these keto Christmas cookies 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?

These cookies should easily last 3-4 days if properly stored. I've stored them for much longer than that, but it is always best to be safe. Freezing them will allow them to last longer as well.

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

Nothing special is 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're frosting them and making your own powdered erythritol (see video below), then you'll need at least a magic bullet or a small food processor!

I opted for Besti sweetener along with liquid stevia! This dynamic duo perfectly complements each other, ensuring a balanced sweetness without that pesky aftertaste often left by sweeteners.

AND a little tip - you can skip purchasing powdered sweeteners if you don't have any. If you've got regular sweetener, simply toss it into a food processor, give it a whirl, and voilà - you've got yourself homemade powdered sweetener.

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.

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

Keto Christmas Cookies Ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.

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 Dough

Roll into small (1 inch) balls and line them on a 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 Dough

Bake for 14 minutes if you flattened them OR bake for 15-18 minutes if you didn't.

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 five batches with four colors (plus white) and it was the perfect amount for this recipe.

Frosting

  • If you desire to frost them, the frosting is 2-3 teaspoons of almond milk for each 4-5 tablespoons of powdered monk fruit. 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 monk fruit to get the desired consistency. I made 5 batches with 4 colors (and white) and it was the perfect amount for this recipe.
