Ingredients for Keto Sugar Cookies
These keto cookies are some of my favorite recipes to have around for Christmas. To make them you’ll need a few low carb ingredients and a few hours to wait for the dough to be ready for baking. Here’s what you’ll need to make low-carb sugar cookies:
- Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – For the best results I recommend using superfine, blanched almond flour. This is important for the final result, and this recipe will not work well with ground almonds.
- Eggs – Well, you’ll need one room
temperaturelarge egg to bind everything together.
- Butter or Coconut Oil – If you don’t want your keto cookies to taste like coconut use refined coconut oil. In my opinion, these cookies taste best and have a fantastic texture if made with grass-fed butter.
- Keto Sweetener & Extracts – To sweeten these cookies without adding real sugar, I like to use an Erythritol blend, such as Swerve. To enhance the taste, I love to add a high-quality vanilla extract and almond extract.
How to Make Keto Sugar Cookies
- All you have to do is to preheat the oven.
- Meanwhile, using a food processor, combine all the ingredients. The dough will be sticky but will harden as it’s chilled.
- Using a knife, cut 1/4 inch cookies and bake until they start to brown on the edges and the whole house smells like Christmas.
- To make cut-out keto sugar cookies, let the dough chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours. It will be easier to roll it out. Roll the cookie dough into 1/4 inch thickness and cut into the desired shapes. Bake them and enjoy Christmas cookies without sugar.
Tips For Making The Best Keto Sugar Cookies
- Make sure you don’t overcook the gluten-free sugar cookies! The cookies continue to cook and harden once completely cool.
- You can also use almond extract or your favorite flavorings, such as peppermint, maple, or lemon.
- Refrigerate the dough until it is completely cold.
- Sift the almond flour to remove any lumps to make flaky and fluffy cookies that melt in your mouth.
- Use superfine blanched almond flour, not almond meal or coconut flour.
- Sugar-free icing – To make a traditional keto icing, whisk powdered erythritol and almond milk until smooth, then pipe onto the cookies.
- Dip the keto sugar cookies in chocolate – Melt chopped dark chocolate in the microwave or on the stovetop. After dipping the cookies in chocolate, set them aside to allow the chocolate to set. To keep these cookies keto-friendly use sugar-free chocolate chips.
How To Store These Keto Sugar Cookies
- Store sugar cookies in an airtight jar at room temperature for up to 7 days. You can also store them in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
- Freeze: If you need to keep them for longer, place the keto cookies in a ziplock bag and store them for up to 6 months. The cookie dough freezes nicely if you want to keep some on hand for unexpected guests.
Can I Make Dairy Free Keto Sugar Cookies?
Yes, you can make these cookies without using dairy, especially if you’re looking for vegan sugar cookies.
Just replace it with vegan butter and use your favorite egg replacement.
