Many families enjoy baking and decorating cookies around the holidays. Your keto kid can join in the fun too with our KetoCal Almond Coconut Cookie recipe. As always, speak with your healthcare provider to ensure that this recipe is appropriate for your child’s diet.
This is your keto-version of basic “sugar” cookies (sans sugar of course). As the name suggests, they are made using almond and coconut flour, but people often describe them as tasting like shortbread cookies. Below are some festive ways to decorate your keto cookies!
Make Cookies in Festive Colors
You can make these cookies festive by adding carb-free food coloring to the batter before cooking. I like to divide the recipe in half and add red carb-free food coloring to one batch and green carb-free food coloring to the other.
Top with Colorful “Keto Sprinkles”
Another idea is to add colorful “keto sprinkles” to your cookies by mixing a small amount of carb-free food coloring into granulated stevia before adding it on top of the cookies.
Use Holiday-themed Cookie Cutters
You can also use mini holiday-themed cookie cutters to make your cookies into different shapes.
We would love to see the holiday cookies that your family creates – Please tag us if you post them on social media so that we can see what you come up with!
Happy keto baking!
