Ingredients

{Vegan} Keto Christmas Cookies

  • 1 Cup almond flour or blanched ground almonds
  • 1/3 Cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 Cup Powdered Swerve (Make 1/3 cup if not using icing)
  • 1/2 Cup plant butter softened(or unsalted grass-fed butter)
  • 1/4 Tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tsp vanilla extract (you can always use vanilla or almond extract)
  • 1/4 Tsp xanthan gum (optional yet highly recommend)
  • Few drops of almond milk to make the dough (1 to 2 tsp)

Vegan Keto Royal Icing:

  • 1/2 Cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
  • 1/2 Cup powdered xylitol
  • 1/2 Tsp MCT powder (coconut oil-based)
  • 4-6 Tbsp Water (warm to dissolve the agar-agar)
  • 1/4 Tsp Agar agar
  • Natural food coloring (I have used red, green, and blue)

Instructions

  • Take a large bowl and sift all flours. If you are like me and refrigerate almond flour, then your almond flour will have large clumps.
  • In that case, sifting really helps. You can also keep the almond flour at room temperature for 4-5 hours so that it becomes soft and flowy.
  • After sifting both almond and coconut flour, add sweetener, baking powder, and xanthan gum. Mix really well.
  • In a separate bowl, take butter and vanilla extract and blend until you have a smooth and fluffy butter. Do not use an electric mixer here.
  • Just a fork or a whisker will do the job. NOTE: Electric mixers tend to add a lot of air, which results in hard and flat cookies.
  • Now add the butter + vanilla to the flour mixture and mix really well till a dough is formed. If the dough feels dry, use a few drop of almond milk to knead it. Place the cookie dough on a cling film or plastic wrap and roll into a log.
  • Now place the dough in the refrigerator to it for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile preheat your oven to 350 F for at least 5-7 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, remove the cookie dough from the fridge. Cut the dough into half and place it in between two sheets of parchment papers.
  • Now roll the dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out cookies as per desired shapes. Place the cookies on a baking sheet and make sure there is some space between the cookies.
  • Because these cookies have baking powder and butter, they will spread as they cook and you really wouldn’t want cookies sticking to each other.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes and you will notice brown edges. Take the cookies out and let them cool on the cookie tray for 15 minutes.
  • Even though some cookies may feel soft in the middle, they will harden as they cool. NOTE: Some ovens may take 10-12 minutes to brown the cookies. The thickness of the cookies also matters and may affect baking time.

Vegan Keto Royal Icing

  • In a bowl, add warm water and agar agar. Mix it well till there are no lumps and agar is fully dissolved. Now add the rest of the ingredients and mix really well.
  • The mixture will look white and grainy at this point. Keep mixing till the mixture looks whitish-translucent and the consistency is slightly drippy and glue-like. Divide the mixture into three parts and add food colors to create icing of your desired color.
  • Use a spoon to add the royal icing onto each cookie and even out the edges with a toothpick. Now add sugar-free candies or use a piping bag filled with ice to make patterns on each cookie.
  • Allow the cookies to sit at room temperature for half-hour before serving. Enjoy these yummy, vegan keto Christmas cookies.

Notes

  • The recipe yielded 22 thin cookies in total.
  • Do not use almond meal or super fine almond flour for this recipe.
  • Some ovens may take 10-12 minutes to brown the cookies. The thickness of the cookies also matters and may affect baking time.
