21 Keto Cookie Recipes to Satisfy Cravings

keto cookies

With the summer days behind us, the cold days are a’ coming. And, there’s nothing like having a cookie (or two) and sitting by the fire on a cold winter’s night.

But, let’s face it, cookies are full of carbs, and carbs pack on the pounds- and there’s nothing comforting about having tight clothes.

That’s where having keto versions of your favorite cookies come in handy. Not only will they satisfy your sweet tooth, but they’re also perfect for a keto diet.

1. Pumpkin Cookies

With fall in the air, nothing says fall more than pumpkin pie…or cookies. However, indulging in a pumpkin cookie could cost you big time!

For instance, one medium pumpkin cookie could cost you almost 20 grams of net carbs. However, our cookie provides only 1 gram of net carbs.

To make them low carb, we’re replacing regular flour with keto-friendly high-quality coconut flour. You can get it here. You won’t need much of it as a little goes a long way.

We’re also using erythritol in place of sugar to sweeten the cookies. Erythritol is the healthiest sweetener out there.

So, I highly recommend using it when you’re on a low carb diet. You can get a bag of it here.

These cookies make for a nice treat at any time of the day. They’re cakey, spicy and sweet- a great combination between cookie and cake.

But best of all, these cookies only take 20 minutes to make from start to finish. Pass the cookies, please!

Peanut butter cookies were one of my favorite cookies as a kid. I’m a big fan of peanut butter, so I naturally love peanut butter cookies.

However, your typical peanut butter cookie is a big no-no on a keto diet. One cookie can contain as many as 8.4 grams of net carbs– and who stops at just one cookie?

These cookies contain only 2.4 grams of net grams and are a tasty treat. They’re crumbly and full of peanut-butter goodness.

Best of all they’re super easy to make and you only need 3 ingredients! To make them, you’ll need some powdered erythritol, an egg, and some smooth unsweetened peanut butter like this.

Powdered erythritol is a little harder to find. But, you can get a pack of it here.

Combine your ingredients, form them into cookies, then bake for 10 minutes. There you go- easy, peasy peanut butter cookies.

Peanut butter is overall a great ingredient to make your favorite keto desserts.

Chocolate chip cookies are such a favorite. Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies?

Yet, your typical chocolate chip cookie is packed with sugar. In fact, one chocolate chip cookie can cost you a whopping 27 grams of net carbs.

These cookies contain only 1.5 grams of net carbs. They’re also high in fat, making them the perfect fat bomb.

These cookies are soft, chewy, and best of all chocolatey- perfect if you’re a chocolate lover like me.

To make them low carb, we’re using coconut flour and almond flour. I recommend stocking up on coconut flour here and almond flour – here.

You should also use Splenda and Truvia, but if you don’t like these sweeteners, feel free to use a low carb sweetener of your choice.

Lakanto monkfruit powdered sweetener can be a good choice here.

These cookies also freeze well, so if you have any cookies left, feel free to pop them in a freezer safe container.

If you’re yearning for the warm days of summer, there’s nothing better to remind you of summer than lemon cookies.

These soft, sweet glazed cookies are bursting with flavour- lemon to be exact. And, best of all, they only contain 1.25 grams of net carbs.

I love that these cookies are super easy to make. To make them, you’ll need some fresh lemon. That’s because you’ll need some lemon juice, and lemon zest, so make sure you stock up on fresh lemons

These cookies are also super tasty. They’re sweet, buttery and crisp-perfect if you love your cookies crispy.

Best of all, you only need 7 ingredients to make them.

With the holidays around the corner, now is the time to start thinking of holiday cookies. And these cookies are keepers!

Cinnamon star cookies are classic German holiday cookies. They are traditionally made of almonds and spices and topped with white frosting.

Now, your traditional cinnamon star cookie tends to be high in carbs due to the sugar.

These cinnamon star cookies are not only low in net carbs but calories as well. So, they’re the perfect holiday guilty pleasure.

They’re spicy and sweet and best of all, light. The recipe makes 40 servings, so you’ll have a stockpile of cookies for the holidays.

To make them, you’ll need some cinnamon. Get Ceylon cinnamon like this instead of cassia cinnamon, because it is more aromatic.

Also, if you love making cookies, it’s time to get these cookie cutters. They’re fun to use and will make any of your cookies look so much better.

I love cookies, particularly cookies that have healthy ingredients. And this cookie is rocking it with not one, but two powerhouse ingredients; cranberries and pistachios.

Cranberries are rich in Vitamins C, E, K, copper, and manganese. They’re also rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants.

Pistachios, on the other hand, are rich heart-healthy fats and are excellent sources of vitamin B6, which is important for a healthy immune system.

These cookies are not only nutritious but yummy. They’re also crisp and look very festive, perfect as a ketogenic holiday dessert.

To make these cookies low carb, we’re using coconut flour like this, which is naturally low in carbs.

I loved playing with snowballs as a kid. As an adult, I still do.

And what says holidays better than chocolate cookies shaped like snowballs?

These cookies are melt in your mouth goodness and are perfect if you love chocolate like I do.

One thing to know about them is that they are also gluten free, perfect if you have Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity.

Plus, the best part is that this recipe makes 22 cookies, so you can keep a stash of these for friends and family.

If you’re a fan of brownies, then these cookies are for you. They’re fudgy, decadent and just plain genius.

At 0.1 grams of net carbs, you can definitely splurge on these cookies. But, since they’re high in fats, and have a decent amount of protein, they’re very satiating.

These cookies contain no flour at all, which is the key reason why they’re so low in net carbs.

What are we using in place of flour? Almond butter!

Besides being yummy, almond butter is extremely nutritious. It is high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and bone-building minerals such as manganese and magnesium.

Best of all, for this cookie, you need only 5 ingredients: cocoa powder, an egg, sugar-free chocolate chips, erythritol, and some high quality almond butter.

Make sure you’re using good quality almond butter as it will highly influence the taste of the cookies. This is the one I recommend.

I’ll say it again- I love cookies. I particularly love cookies that have healthy ingredients.

And this cookie has lots of them. It has chocolate chips, coconut, and walnuts.

Plus, it’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious.

Did I also mention that these cookies take only 5 minutes of prep time? Perfect when you want a cookie packed with flavor, but are short on time.

Now to make these cookies extra healthy and low carb, you’ll want to use sugar-free dark chocolate chips like these, not milk chocolate chips.

This is because dark chocolate has more antioxidants than milk chocolate. Also, milk chocolate tends to have much more sugar!

I enjoy thumbprint cookies. In my opinion, the jam is the best part.

But, one cookie can easily provide 25 grams of net carbs; more than your daily net carbs. And who wants to blow their ketosis for one measly cookie?

These thumbprint cookies contain only 2 grams of net carbs. So you can have one, or two cookies if you like!

They’re soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside and sweet in the middle. We’re using walnuts to crust the outside, but you can use any nuts of your choice to crust the cookie.

We’re also using good quality sugar-free jam like this to keep the carbs down.

18. Shortbread Cookies

Credit: fittoservegroup.com

I have to say that shortbread cookies are hands down one of my favorite cookies. I used to gorge on the store-bought ones as a kid.

However, your typical store-bought cookie can contain as much as 19 grams of net carbs. With a 20-gram net carb limit, you would have to drink oil and water for the rest of the day to stay in ketosis.

This cookie contains only 1.1 grams of net carbs, so you could easily snack on a couple. These cookies are very rich and contain a whopping 18.7 grams of fat, perfect for keeping you in ketosis.

The key to making these cookies low carb is that we’re replacing regular flour with almond flour.

To add some texture, feel free to add some pecans. But if you’re a purist like me, simply leave them out.

  • Calories: 185
