When you love Christmas time, you look forward to all of the best traditions: the lights, trees, smiles, presents, and, of course, the food. We love the savory, tender meat, roasted vegetables with a light pouring of keto gravy, and the crunch of cookies, perhaps dipped in some creamy keto ice cream. Cookies are a quintessential part of the holidays for many people, and you don’t have to miss out just because you’re living a ketogenic lifestyle.

9 Great Keto Christmas Cookie Ideas

Treat yourself to keto Christmas cookies with these delectable cookie recipes from the creators at Ketogenic.com:

1. Peanut Butter

If you love peanut butter, peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips are the right dessert choice for you, with only two net carbs per cookie. This versatile 25-minute recipe works with another butter if you’d prefer, such as almond butter.

Prettify your cookies and make them the centerpiece of your table using fun cookie cutters or molds, like a Christmas tree-shaped cookie cutter.

2. Snickerdoodle

Snickerdoodle isn’t just a fun word to say; it’s a type of cookie typically derived from fat, sugar, eggs, salt, and flour. Classic snickerdoodles are rolled in cinnamon sugar and have a cracked surface that can be soft or crunchy, depending on how it’s made. You can’t devour the original sugar-loaded snickerdoodles, but you can sink your teeth into these keto cardamom snickerdoodles with cinnamon and maple bourbon caramel flavors that are perfect for the holiday season. Garnish with berries or your preferred fruit.

3. Chocolate

The joys of Christmas are abundant, from a cup of eggnog by a warm fireplace to the overwhelming warmth you feel when your loved one opens that special gift. For some, chocolate is one of the joys of this time of year. These keto chocolate cookie recipes ditch the sugar but bring plenty of sweetness and chocolatiness:

Your guests will enjoy a different take on classic cookies, like these soft chocolate chip cookie dough balls. Your cookie dough balls are ready with just 6 ingredients and 8 mins!

4. Pumpkin

Pumpkin is a unique and versatile fruit that usually makes a grand entrance at the beginning of fall, with its biggest showcases at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Pumpkin lovers can enjoy these delicious keto pumpkin spice meringue cookies for dessert.

5. Lemon

Meringue cookies are made by stiffly beating egg whites and sugar and baking until you reach your desired crispiness. Since sugar isn’t a keto ingredient, this low-carb lemon meringue cookie recipe uses a keto sweetener instead, so you don’t feel guilty if you eat the entire tray, though you probably want to save some for your guests.

Try these light lemon ricotta cookies if you’re in the mood for lemon.

6. Classic Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies are a classic, delivering just the right amount of crunch and sweetness. However, you’ve left sugar in the past, and classic sugar cookies are a big no-no on keto. No matter; enjoy these 20-minute monk fruit keto sugar cookies instead. Who needs sugar when you have monk fruit and other keto sweeteners?

7. Oreos and Snickers

Traditional Oreos aren’t keto-friendly, but this creative alternative keto oreo cookie recipe most certainly is. This recipe includes 12 ingredients and takes 1 hour and 25 minutes to make, but it’s well worth it to devour Oreos this Christmas and still stay on track with your keto goals.

Keto oreo cookie bites are another simpler and quicker option to prepare.

If you’re a snickers fan, you’ll be delighted with this keto cookie dough snickers bar recipe, featuring all the original favorites like nuts, caramel, chocolate, and a bonus cookie dough layer.

8. Pignoli Cookies

Pignolis is the Italian name for pine nuts. Pignolis bring a sweet, nutty, and buttery flavor to any recipe, and they’re frequently used in Italian cooking. You don’t have to have an Italian family to love these 35-minute keto pignoli cookies made with ingredients like almond flour, egg whites, pine nuts, salt, and stevia.

9. No-Bake Cookies

With all that Christmas cooking, no-bake cookies might sound appealing. Keto peanut butter chocolate no-bake cookies only require 6 ingredients and 20 minutes. All you need is the ingredients, a saucepan, a plate or cookie sheet, and a freezer.

If you’re vegan or have vegan friends or family, this vegan no-bake peanut butter vanilla cookie recipe is an excellent choice.
