Christmas is approaching so fast. My whole house smells like cookies. We made some Keto Gingerbread Cookies to have on hand 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.

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

How to make keto gingerbread cookies?

Flours, keto flours of course

  • Almond flour
  • Coconut flour

All you have to do is to slowly mix the keto flours with the egg, coconut oil, vanilla extract the spices until it has the consistency of a dough. Don’t be afraid to use your hands.

Using an electric 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.

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.

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 temperature.

Gingerbread cutters

To cut my gingerbread dough I used the cutters shapes below. Aren’t them 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 adding icing. This will save you some carbs.

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!

You know what crossed my mind right now?
