The holidays are approaching so fast. My whole house smells like cookies. We made these delicious, gluten-free, wheat-free Keto Gingerbread Cookies for when Santa arrives. They turned out perfect. I think he won’t even notice that we served him sugar-free and gluten-free gingerbread.

If you are a true Christmas lover, I bet you already have all the ingredients for making this recipe in your kitchen. These are just as perfect for Holidays as our Snickerdoodle Cookies that are also super low carb.

I love using classic Holiday spices. Cinnamon is by far my favorite. I could eat anything that has cinnamon in it.

Ingredients for Keto Low Carb Gingerbread Cookies

  • Almond flour and Coconut flour – Using both low carb flour gives these cookies the perfect texture.
  • Powdered Sweetener – I usually use Erythritol, but Monk fruit is also a great choice.
  • Eggs
  • Cream cheese/ mascarpone cheese
  • coconut oil or butter
  • baking powder
  • Spices: ground ginger,  cinnamon, nutmeg
  • vanilla extract

Tip: You can use 2 tsp of my homemade pumpkin pie spices instead of all the spices.

How to Make Keto Gingerbread Cookies?

  1. All you have to do is to slowly mix the keto flours with the egg, coconut oil (or butter), vanilla extract the spices until it has the consistency of a dough. Don’t be afraid to use your hands.
  2. Using a stand mixer will make your job much easier since all you have to do is to add all the ingredients in the mixer bowl and let it work.
  3. If you feel like the dough is too wet add one more tablespoon of coconut flour to absorb the moisture. It really depends on the brand or the way it is stored.
  4. The most important part is to let the dough cool down in the fridge for at least 2 hours. This step will make it easier to work with as the coconut oil hardens at low temperatures.
  5. Roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to shape the dough.
  6. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 8-15 minutes or until they smell delicious and they look golden brown on the edges.

Gingerbread Cookie Cutters

To cut my gingerbread dough I used the cutters shapes below. Aren’t they pretty?

After I learned how to use them, the cookies turned out perfectly. You can cut the cookie without imprinting the design, but I love them with the design because I don’t feel that there’s a need for icing.

Simply press down to cut the outer perimeter and then gently push the button to imprint the cookies. Super easy to use! You can find them on Amazon!

Quick keto gift idea: Do you know what crossed my mind right now? Do you have a keto friend? Or just someone who loves eating healthy?
