Holidays call for Christmas sugar cookies! Just because you’re on a low carb diet doesn’t mean you have to go without. Check out my recipe for these Low Carb Sugar Cookies – they’re sugar free, gluten free, and perfect for a keto diet.


  • Cookies
  • 2 cups almond flour

  • 1/4 cup coconut flour

  • 3 Tbsp collagen powder (or 1 Tbsp unflavored gelatin)

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 c. powdered erythritol (like Swerve)

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and softened

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

  • Optional Icing
  • 3/4 cup powdered erythritol (like Swerve)

  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream

  • food coloring as desired

  • water as needed for consistency


  • Preheat the oven to 325˚F.
  • Sift together the almond flour, coconut flour, collagen powder (or unflavored gelatin), powdered sweetener and salt into the bowl of a standing mixer. Mix on low speed for a bit to help combine the dry ingredients.
  • Turn the speed up to medium and slowly add the softened butter cubes one at a time to the flour mixture. Let the mixer run for 1-2 minutes to incorporate the butter, but do NOT over-mix. Dough should be crumbly and slightly damp. Add in the vanilla and almond extracts and combine for just a few seconds.
  • Using your hands, make a ball with the dough and knead it together for a few seconds. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out the chilled dough between two pieces of parchment paper. Dough should be about 1/4” thick. Place the rolled dough back in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes to ensure it is chilled. This is how the cookies will maintain their shape while cooking.
  • Cut out your cookie shapes from the chilled dough and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Do NOT overcrowd the pan.
  • Bake on the center rack at 325˚F for 13-15 minutes. For soft and tender cookies, do not over-bake.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking pan for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to firm up.
  • If icing the cookies, mix the powdered sweetener with the heavy cream. Separate into 2-3 small bowls and add food coloring to each batch as desired. If needed, add small amounts of water to reach desired icing consistency.
  • Once the cookies have fully cooled, decorate and enjoy! Store in a tightly closed container with parchment paper to separate the layers.
