Why You’ll Love This Recipe
You know how much I love keto Christmas cookies. It’s a big family tradition to make plenty of homemade cookies to share on Christmas night.
This year, I chose to fill the cookie box with keto vegan Christmas cookies to share with my vegan husband.
There are many diets in the family, and I want to make sure we can enjoy cookies from the same jar.
How To Make Keto Gingerbread Cookies
Finally, a healthy gingerbread cookies recipe that you can share with everyone. Yes, these cookies tick all dietary requirements: keto, gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free.
Let’s see all you need to make these keto gingerbread cookies this Christmas.
- Almond flour or almond meal – both work very well. Read my Keto Flour guide for help on choosing and using Keto flour.
- Egg or chia seed egg – if you eat eggs, use 1 egg. The color of these gluten-free gingerbread cookies will be even more beautiful. Otherwise, use 1 tablespoon of chia seed soaked in 3 tablespoons of water as an egg replacement!
- Sugar-free sweetener – I love to use a combo of Monk fruit and erythritol, golden or classic, both work. Use my Sweetener converter to convert from one sweetener to another.
- Spices – I used a good amount of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
- Vanilla extract
- Blackstrap molasses – I usually make the cookies without it, but I provide an option with molasses for vegans as it is an amazing way to add iron to your cookies. My husband is vegan, and I do the molasses recipe for him.
- Extra virgin coconut oil – you can probably use a different oil, but I like the flavor of coconut in this recipe. If you are not a big fan of coconut flavor, use refined coconut oil.
Decorating Keto Gingerbread Cookies
The healthiest way to decorate your keto gingerbread cookies recipe is to use 3 simple natural ingredients:
- Sugar-free powdered monk fruit
- Guar gum – optional, but hold the keto royal icing better.
You can prepare these gingerbread cookies up to 2 weeks before Christmas and store them in my cookie jar.
This recipe has a strong gingerbread flavor, so store them in their own cookie jar or they will pass their flavor to the other cookies.
