Oh my gosh, I can’t believe this is the third year since I started baking keto Halloween cookies. The funny thing is, I would never bake cookies for Halloween before keto.
Halloween is a tricky, sneaky little bastard. It comes around every year so quickly, I can’t seem to follow. Trick or treat? I’ll go for the latter!
I hope you’ve got some kids around for this one! It is sooo much fun to melt some chocolate and mix some egg white with powdered sweetener just to draw those scary (or scared) faces, eyes, and funny mouths onto the pumpkin-shaped cookies.
The simplest keto Halloween cookies
These might not look as fancy as your Halloween costume, because I’ve aimed at creating a recipe that would be quick, simple, and fun to make. There are so many adorable Halloween treat recipes out there that I just wouldn’t get myself making with the busy lifestyle! I hope you agree that a quick solution is sometimes the best one.
The keto Halloween cookies dough 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 the faces (it’s easy with fondant tools) or just soaking the cookies in melted chocolate. We always have so much fun doing this; even more fun than giving the cookies away for Halloween (or keeping them all for yourself because, after all, they are keto-friendly)!
Keep calm, trick or treat and keto on.
Are all the listed ingredients necessary for these keto Halloween cookies?
This question usually pops up when somebody doesn’t have or doesn’t want to use IMO syrup or xanthan gum. With this recipe, I’d say, yes, use the xanthan gum and the IMO syrup if you don’t want to have a tough time keeping the dough together when it’s being rolled out and cut into the cute little angry-looking pumpkin heads.
