Have you been flirting with keto diet lately? Don't know where to start? Although keto cookies can be a great part of a well-balanced keto regime, I do not advise that they should be your first keto meal. Instead, read about the keto basics first. When you have it all under control, keto cookies can become an awesome choice for an occasional keto treat.
Winter time is best for keto cookie baking. On second thought, any time is the best time for making delicious keto cookies. I promise you that some of the recipes are so simple you're hardly going to believe it. Just get yourself a whole bunch of spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves to enjoy Christmas spirit keto cookies, or bake plain vanilla-flavored shortbread keto cookies any time of the year!
Keto Cookies Recipes
The following recipes are all gluten-free, sugar-free, and grain free. They can be sweetened with erythritol or a monk fruit sweetener. Some also contain stevia to help raise the sweetness of erythritol to the sugar level.
Most of the recipes use nut flours. Almond flour is my favorite, but I also add coconut flour quite often. When it comes to keto cookie recipes, I find a nut meal (for example almond meal) to be a perfect ingredient. In my opinion, roughly ground nuts work great for crunchiness. Last but not least, I often use macadamia nuts in my recipes. Macadamias are the most keto-friendly of all nuts. Although not the cheapest to get, they are by no doubt healthy. Back in the days, when I suffered from a chronic migraine, macadamia nuts would never trigger an attack for me, while other nuts would. Give macadamia nuts a chance if you can.
Below you will find a few keto cookie recipe ideas that I hope you will like. If you don't see what you are looking for, let me know! We are always on the outlook for new keto dessert recipe ideas!

This is an all-time classic! A ketofied version of Chocolate Chip Cookies will blow your mind with simplicity and deliciousness. They are on your table in 30 minutes, ready to satisfy any sweet tooth. When almond flour replaces plain wheat flour, all the magic of keto desserts emerges in its glory.
Lovely Fragrant Keto Cookies
Lovely Fragrant Keto Cookies are by far my favorite choice as soon as December comes around the corner and Christmas lights remind me that time flies by too quickly to not enjoy spicy keto cookies. I bake a few batches every year and bring them to all of the (non-keto) family. This way my darling and I can enjoy happy December treats just like everybody else.
Low Carb Gingerbread Cookies
Low Carb Gingerbread Cookies are a must at Christmas time! I usually go for a version of traditional European gingerbread cookies that contain lots of honey. Because I want to make them low-carb, I give up honey and take the best replacement I’ve found so far: Sukring gold syrup. Take that dough roller and be amazed at how simple it is to get to enjoy a low-carb version of gingerbread delight for holidays!
Christmas Keto Marzipan Cookies
Ready for some Christmas baking? Do you also love marzipan? Why not try a keto version of traditional European gingerbread cookies that originally contain lots of honey? If you want to make them low-carb, give up honey and take the best replacement I’ve found so far: Sukring gold syrup.
Low Carb Cookies
This is another Christmas recipe that will amaze with its simplicity, yet delicious flavors! The best thing is that you can choose your own ingredients! For example, instead of macadamia, feel free to use any other type of ground nuts. A mixture of almonds and hazelnuts if you will. Then, add any kind of flour. Moreover, make the recipe dairy-free by using coconut butter!
Keto Halloween (or any holiday) Cookies
If you happened to miss Halloween keto baking, you don't have to wait until next year. Instead of drawing scary faces, draw something Christmas-friendly and use the keto cookies as Christmas tree decoration. The dough for this recipe is ready in a few minutes. But I encourage you to sit down and take your time and your kids’ time to get creative with drawing or soaking the cookies in melted chocolate. We always have so much fun doing this!
Shortbread Keto Cookies
Obviously, shortbread cookies are the tea’s best friends. And while everybody can enjoy them, why should you or I be the only observer in the room? Take this recipe and bake yourself a nice batch of the simplest shortbread cookies. If you can hold yourself back and not eat too many of them, these are perfectly keto friendly.
Tahini Keto Cookies
The following recipe goes out to all the tahini lovers … But, it might actually come in handier to all those who dislike tahini. Why? Because when you end up with a jar of tahini in your home and have absolutely no idea how to use it, you can make tahini cookies!
