Here are the 17 Christmas cookies you’ll want to make if you are on a low carb / ketogenic diet this holiday season. Christmas cookies and low carb don’t seem like they’d go together. but we’re here to tell you that you can have ALL the sweets. Wipe your tears and get baking, because we’ve compiled some of our blogging friends’ favorites (and a few of our own).
Prepare your drool…
I don’t think you can really call it Christmas unless you add some gingerbread. These cookies look elegant, and they’d make the perfect baked goods gift for friends.
These are my top pin on Pinterest from Linneyville, and for a very good reason. They are easy to make and super chocolatey to eat. Another great gift idea – your friends will never know they are low carb!
Grain free with coconut flour and a little orange zest – what a great pairing of flavors. Aren’t they just beautiful?
We’re drooling over these chocolate dipped shortbread cookies by My PCOS Kitchen. They are pretty enough to gift or serve at a holiday party.
I love a little coconut and chocolate. These remind me of a Mounds bar and I make this batch at least once a month. It makes a ton and I have a lot to freeze for “emergencies”…. if you know what I mean.
Snickerdoodles and milk = perfection. I can’t wait to dip them in my bullet proof coffee too!
Truffles are such a great gift but also a great party treat. One bite, pop it in your mouth (chew a little, maybe swallow) and get back to socializing at your holiday gathering.
What a great combo. They are low carb and paleo with a dairy-free option and we can’t wait to make them.
These cookies contain spirulina, a blue-green algae that is jam-packed with vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients. Have you tried it yet? What are your favorite spirulina recipes?
These simple cookies have been a staple in our keto house for a year. I find that the flour brands make a difference and when I’ve tried a different brand, they’ve been dry. Always good to try a small batch first.
Aren’t these gorgeous? Northern Nester shares a refrigerator cookie recipe that would be perfect year round. Imagine these at Valentine’s day with some pink icing. Swoon!
Cinnamon yum, these snickerdoodles look soft and chewy. It’s one of my favorite cookies, so I’ve got 2 different recipes in this post. Let me know which one you prefer!
Sometimes you can taste a cookie just by looking at it. This is that cookie. I love that they’ve used natural dyes for the icing as well.
These are beautiful and look like the perfect bite. I’m a big cookie for breakfast fan and these would make my day. I think Santa would love these, don’t you agree?
This cookie has 3pm snack written all over it. I love the chocolate drizzle, giving you just the right amount of chocolatey goodness. I spy a glass of milk in the background… perfection!
Pumpkin is wonderful year round. There, I said it. It’s not just for the holidays. Check out this blogger’s site – she has a basic cream cheese cookie recipe as well that you may be able to modify for even more flavors!
I love these sweet iced cookies. They look so festive and really put me in the holiday mood. I hope you have a great holiday season full of yummy cookies!
