Some of my best holiday memories involve cookies – eating them, baking them with my family and giving them as gifts to neighbors, teachers, and friends. Thankfully, I did not have to give up my cookie habit when I decided to go on the keto diet five years ago. Honestly, it probably would have been a deal-breaker! I’m a dessert girl, and I always will be! One of the things I love most about the keto diet is the fabulous dessert menu!
Here’s the thing: no matter what your holiday traditions may be, these keto Christmas cookies will help you celebrate without adding to your waistline. These cookies are perfect for holiday parties, gifts, or to keep on hand in case of a late-night dessert emergency!
As for dessert? These Keto Christmas cookies recipes have your back and macros covered. Thanks to clever combinations of almond and coconut flour cream cheese and sugar-free sugar swaps, you can make just about any Christmas cookie low carb. Here are my favorites so far.
