11 Keto Cookies low carb cookie recipes for christmas

Keto Almond Butter Cookies

Crispy and full of flavor. These are easy to make and easy to love.

They are the perfect addition to the plate of cookies you leave for St Nick.

Almond Butter Cookies Crumbled

Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

These are near the top of the list because they are my favorite Keto cookies.

I dig the shortbread texture and the subtle lemony taste, they’re sublime.

The nostalgia factor also kicks in. That not-quite crunch that says good shortbread can make you forget Keto and be in the moment of whatever you happen to be celebrating at the moment.

These are like coffee’s best friend or great with tea or the the tour de force hot chocolate.

I know lemon and chocolate sound weird but these go well with it.

Just imagine coming from sledding to a mug of hot chocolate and some of these amazing Keto cookies.

Keto Lemon Poppy Seed Shortbread
Tangy & delightful, they could be a new holiday tradition or something to have with coffee. Easy to make and will please the whole family.

Chocolate Ricotta Cookies

I know a guy that says if it isn’t chocolate it might as well be a salad. 

He would love these cookies as would any serious chocolate lover.

When Brenna first made these I was a tiny bit apprehensive about the ricotta – I think before these cookies the only place I used ricotta is in lasagna.

How wrong I was about that.  Ricotta is very common in Italian desserts and sweets.  Without knowing it I have been enjoying ricotta in cannolis for years.

There are ricotta cakes and ricotta pudding and the list goes on.

My point here is that if you would like a really special chocolate cookie you really need to try this one.

You may be pleasantly surprised at these short bread Keto Cookies.  The subtle cream cheese flavor with the butter and vanilla is enough to warm your soul through your taste buds.

These would be appropriate for tea with the queen, or even tea with my Mom.

Classic Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies and the holidays go together like unicorns and glitter.

It’s the magic of the season. 

Sugar cookies are what we always left for Santa, except for that one year that we figured he might be tired of cookies after having cookies at every house all the way around the world.

That year we left him a cheese tray with a beautiful french Cabernet.

Back to sugar cookies.  If your nostalgia is anything like mine you will want to try this recipe.

Keto Soft Key Lime Shortbread Cookies

MoscatoMom.com has got one of the more unique and delicious cookie recipes I have found.

This soft version of short bread has the most delightful texture.

They are somewhere between the chewy gooey and the subtle crisp of a regular short bread. 

And the Key Lime – well you just don’t normally associate key lime with cookies.

I love key lime pie, we even have a recipe key lime cheese cake cheesecake bites, but until I saw this recipe I don’t think I ever heard of lime shortbread.

So try these Keto cookies they’re really good.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

What can I say?  This is our unapologetic put-everything-good-in-a-cookie recipe.

These chocolate chip cookies have peanut butter, but if you happen to have almond butter or sun butter or any other kind of nut butter they all work really well, but I like the peanut butter.

These don’t call for too much PB, so there is just a hint of the peanut flavor and when you combine that with the almond flour and the lily’s dark chocolate chips, you will be getting right into cookie heaven.

Make them for the un-Keto see if they know that they are low carb.  We took some to family get together and no oen could tell that they were low carb.  All they said was “Yum”.

Keto Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies
These fantastic treats will calm your cookie cravings and won't break your carb count for the day. They're low in carbs, gluten free and a perfect Keto snack when you need it. They take about as much effort as regular chocolate chip cookies and have a hint of peanut buttery taste. (If using peanut butter)

Chewy Coconut Cookies

ButterTogetherKitchen.com – what a great Keto name!

Coconut is a nice flavor for sweet stuff, and these cookies are just the right sweetness.

These cookies are great by themselves, but if you are going to make them for some kind of fancy holiday event the recipe also includes a great cream cheese frosting recipe that you won’t want to miss.

Cookies like these with a giant bowl of mixed nuts (in the shell) was Christmas morning breakfast at our house.

Keto Coconut Cookies
I have always loved coconut. Ever since I can remember, I have loved all things coconut; coconut cake, coconut milk, and even Almond Joy’s. Since making these delicious coconut cookies, I now have a new favorite to add to the list! These are Keto, gluten free, grain free, and low carb. Most importantly though, these really are delicious!

Keto Snickerdoodles

And, last-but-not-least, Snickerdoodles.  A funny and nostalgic sounding name from the people at gnom-gnom.com.

There are lots of theories about where the word snickerdoodle comes from. The one I like best is  from a German word ~ Schnecke Knoödel which is a snail shaped butter biscuit that is rolled in cinnamon sugar before baking.

The unique flavor of snickerdoodles comes from the cinnamon-sugar that it’s rolled in, but also from the cream of tarter that not only activates the baking soda, but provides a subtle taste that compliments the cinnamon-sugar.

So that’s the trivia.  They are delicious you should try them.

Perfectly Soft Snickerdoodle Cookies
Perfectly soft, lightly tangy and ultra cinnamon-y! Some recipes translate outstandingly well into their gluten free and low carb counterparts, and these Keto snickerdoodle cookies fall right into that category!
