Ingredients

To make these Keto Christmas cookies you will need almond flour, coconut flour for the base with additional ingredients typically used in cookies.

Gather the following ingredients:

  • Superfine Almond flour – I just bought Costco brand, but usually use Wellbee’s.
  • Coconut flour – I use Anthony’s Goods.
  • Butter – you can use coconut oil for a vegan option or if you are out of butter!
  • Sweetener – granulated sugar free sweetener of your choice. For this recipe I used Allulose.
  • Egg – just one to bind all the ingredients together.
  • Baking soda
  • Extracts – vanilla
  • Oil – peppermint
  • Extras: Sugar free baking chips or bar, and crushed sugar free peppermint candy or festive sprinkles.

Kitchen tools you will need:

  • Mixing bowl
  • Spatula
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or silicone baking mat
  • Saran wrap
  • Measuring tools

How to make peppermint keto Christmas cookies

Once you have gathered the ingredients this cookie dough takes no time to whip up.

Although you will be anxious to put these in the oven, these cookies need to be refrigerated for a minimum of two hours.

For best results refrigerate overnight.

Peppermint keto Christmas cookies dipped in chocolate

To make the peppermint cookies that are dipped in chocolate you want to slice the plain roll and bake.

After cooled, melt chocolate and dip part of the cookie in the chocolate. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy.

What’s the difference between peppermint oil and peppermint extract?

Peppermint oil is more concentrated than extract, so you will use less when baking with the oil.

Note t1 teaspoon of peppermint extract may be substituted for 1/4″ teaspoon of peppermint oil.

How to store keto Christmas cookies

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days or place in airtight container in refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Cookie dough can be placed in an airtight freezer bag or container for up to 3 months.

Additionally, baked cookies can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Although, the peppermint candy may bleed or get gooey. It’s best to decorate the cookies after removing from the freezer.
