Frosted Keto Christmas Cookies


  • 8 tablespoons grass-fed butter, soft
  • 2 eggs, free-range and organic if possible
  • 8 drops liquid stevia (or ~1/4 teaspoon powdered)
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup granular erythritol
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • powdered erythritol (frosting)
  • unsweetened almond milk (frosting)
  • all-natural plant-based food colorings (optional) (found online and contain no harmful dyes – we used the Supernatural Brand)
  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Place butter, eggs, stevia, vanilla, and almond extract well in a medium bowl.  Mix well with electric hand beaters.
  3. Stir flour, baking powder, granular erythritol, and sea salt together in a large bowl.
  4. Pour egg mixture into dry ingredient mix and continue mixing with hand beaters.
  5. Cover tightly and allow the dough to cool for 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
  6. Once well-cooled, form 1-inch balls with the dough, and roll each onto the lined baking sheet. If they are not completely flat, press down to flatten (it’s also okay to have taller cookies).
  7. Bake for 12-14 minutes if flat, and 15-18 minutes if taller. Allow cookies to cool on wire rack. Yield 40 cookies.
  8. Meanwhile, make the frosting: Place 1/4 cup powdered erythritol in a small bowl. Pour in just about 2 teaspoons almond milk, or until it’s at the desired consistency. Leave frosting white or add food coloring if desired. Frost cooled cookies. (Depending on the amount of frosting applied to each cookie and consistency, you may have to make more frosting.)

Why Make Frosted Keto Christmas Cookies?

Sure, you could just run to the store and buy sugar cookies at the bakery or in the cookie aisle. That would be easier. But what would it cost you?

The average sugar cookie contains:

  • 190 calories
  • 32 grams of carbohydrates (31 grams net carbohydrates)
  • 22 grams of sugar
  • 2 grams of protein

Its ingredients may include (taken from ingredients of Walmart store bakery cookies): Sugar, Enriched Bleached Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Margarine (Palm Oil, Water, Soybean Oil, Salt, Mono— And Diglycerides, Calcium Disodium EDTA[Preservative], Artificial Flavor, Annatto Extract [Color], Vitamin A Palmitate), Eggs, Water, Contains 2% Or Less Of: Cornstarch, Palm Kernel Oil, Palm Oil, Leavening (Baking Soda, Sodium Aluminum Sulfate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Modified Food Starch, Polysorbate 60, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier), Nonfat Milk, Confectioner’s Glaze, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Sodium Propionate (Preservative), Blue 1 Lake, Carnauba Wax, Red 3, Yellow 5 Lake, Yellow 6 Lake.

Keto Christmas Cookies vs. Store-Bought

There’s a lot to unpack when comparing our Frosted Keto Christmas Cookies and store-bought ones, but here are the main differences:

Net Carbohydrates: If you eat 22 grams of sugar and 31 net grams of carbohydrates in just 1 store-bought cookie, you may fall out of the Keto Zone right then! This is the equivalent of stuffing 1.5 tablespoons of sugar in your mouth (per cookie), not even including all the refined starches in the flour. Keto Christmas Cookies, on the other hand, boost only 1 gram of net carbohydrates. You can stay in the Keto Zone, and have your cookies too!

Sources of Fats: Like many processed foods, store-bought sugar cookies likely contain soybean oil. This is really too bad. Soybean oil is a potent source of processed omega-6s, which when out of balance with omega-3s, leads to inflammation in our bodies (1, 2). Instead of soybean or other harmful oils, our Keto Christmas Cookies contain grass-fed butter, a balanced source of saturated and unsaturated fats, with little omega-6 fats in comparison.

Refined Flour vs. Almonds: The base of Keto Christmas Cookies is almonds. Almonds are low-carbohydrate but contain vitamins, minerals, and compounds that promote bone, brain, heart, and digestive health in the body (3). And, they great taste. Refined flour? It’s little more than sugar in the body.

The choice is clear. If you want to stay in the Keto Zone and enjoy a delicious frosted cookie, make our Keto Christmas Cookies and pass on the store-bought variety.

Bottom Line

Sure, it takes some effort. But, Keto Christmas Cookies are absolutely worth it! Set aside some time and make them with, or for, your loved ones today!

    Made these cookies for Christmas. Love the taste!
    They spread a lot and then once removed from the over they fell apart. The second half I allowed to cool on the cookie sheet thinking that would help them stay together but they also crumbled. We ate them with a spoon lol
