Hacks for Keto Sugar Cookies

Almost all traditional sugar cookie recipes contain lots of sugar and flour, so they are loaded with carbs and consequently are not keto-friendly.

This keto sugar cookie recipe uses almond flour and coconut flour as a nutrient-dense replacement for traditional wheat flour, and then they are sweetened with confectioner erythritol.

They are the perfect low-carb dessert that are actually good for you! The coconut and almond flours add extra fiber, which will keep you satisfied after one or two cookies (though we don't blame you if you want more!).

How to Make Keto Sugar Cookies

Our recipe is divided in two parts: the cookies and the royal icing.

Let's go over step-by-step instructions on how to make these cookies.

You will need a heart-shaped cookie cutter before you get started!

Keto Coconut Heart Sugar Cookies

Step #1. Make the Cookie Dough

Make the dough by combining all the wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix with an electric mixer until smooth.

Then, add dry ingredients and beat again.

Sprinkle some confectioner erythritol on your counter to keep the dough from sticking and then toll out the dough with a rolling pin.

Step #2. Cut out the Heart Shapes

Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out the cookies from the dough.

Transfer the heart cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Re-roll the excess dough and cut out more heart shaped cookies until the dough is used up.

You should get about 48 medium-sized cookies from the dough.

Step #3. Bake the Cookies

This recipe yields 48 cookies and about 12 cookies fit on a baking sheet.

If you don't have multiple baking sheets, you can make the cookies in batches. They only take a few minutes to bake, so it won't add much extra time.

Add the cookies to the oven and bake at 350°F for 10-14 minutes or until they are lightly golden!

Step #4. Make the Keto Royal Icing

While the cookies are baking, make the icing, which is super simple to make!

Just beat the egg whites and vanilla extract until frothy, then add in the confectioner erythritol gradually and beat for 5 minutes.

Mix on low speed first, then on high speed towards the end.

If using just one color of icing for the cookies, stir in a few drops of food coloring to the icing and beat to combine.

If using more than one color of icing, simply divide the icing into smaller bowls and then put the desired food coloring in each bowl.

Step #5. Frost Your Keto Sugar Cookies

To “frost” the cookies, scoop a tablespoon of the icing into a piping bag (or sandwich bag with the corner snipped off).

The consistency should be thick; use this small bit of icing to draw the outline of your heart cookies.

To “frost” the inside of the hearts, thin out the remaining icing with a touch of almond milk until you get a good flooding consistency – that way, the icing will fill up the heart outline from the thicker icing.

Make Sure To Let Your Cookies Cool Before Adding Icing

If you add the icing while they are still warm, it could melt.

If you want runny or clear icing on top, frost the cookies while they are warm.

But if you want the frosting to stay thick and colorful, then wait until the cookies are completely cool first.
