The Keto Snowball cookies are a Christmas classic because they are super buttery and melt in your mouth. These sugar-free cookies are made with almond flour, butter, and toasty nuts. With just one net carb per ball, you can enjoy festive sugar-free cookies freely.

 These cookies come under many names such as butterballs, Russian tea cakes, or Mexican wedding cakes. No matter how you call them, these low carb snowball cookies are equally delicious, moist, buttery, and festive.

Roll freshly baked shortbread cookies into powdered sweetener for the best taste and festive look. No holiday table is complete without some delicious gluten-free cookies. And these are ready in less than 30 minutes start to finish!

The best part about these cookies is that you can make them vegan or paleo by just substituting the butter with coconut oil.

Ingredients


For Coating

  • More powdered sweetener

Instructions


  • Finely ground the pecans using a food processor or a sharp knife. It should resemble a pecan flour, not pecan butter (so don’t over-blend).
  • Lightly toast the chopped pecans into a dry pan over medium heat until they start to smell nutty. Chill for a few minutes.
  • Cream the room temperature butter and sweetener until airy and lighter in color for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the almond flour, chopped toasted pecans, salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix using your hands or hand mixer on low until the dough is formed.
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes. The dough lasts for up to three days in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Form little balls from the dough and arrange on the sheet pan. I made about 20 snowball cookies.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until they are cooked through
  • While they’re still warm, roll in powdered (confectioner’s) sweetener.
  • Allow to cool down then roll in more powdered sweetener. Enjoy!
