The holidays are just around the corner, which means it’s time for bountiful Christmas dinners. Turkey, ham, potatoes, and other holiday classics will grace your table again, finishing off with your favorite desserts.
Fortunately, the delightful anticipation over this season doesn’t have to come with the dreaded holiday weight gain. You don’t have to take a break from your keto diet to enjoy flavorful Christmas desserts.
We’ve whipped up these low-carb, keto-friendly, and easy-to-make cookie recipes to get you in the spirit of the season.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich
The classic chocolate chip cookie paired with a generous scoop of ice cream will be a crowd pleaser in your holiday dinner. But if you’re not a fan of baking, this recipe can be challenging to make.
This keto cookie will make things easier for you. It has all the fun parts of chocolate chip cookies without the downsides of refined carbohydrates.
Simply scoop a good amount of your preferred ice cream onto one keto-friendly cookie and top if off with another. Nothing beats vanilla, but you can get creative with different flavors. Just make sure they’re sugar-free. Add texture to your ice cream sandwiches by patting the sides with dark chocolate chips, roasted almonds, or sugar-free rainbow sprinkles. Serve cold.
Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie
Non-chocolate fans will appreciate this peanut butter confection. With ready-made peanut butter keto cookies, you won’t have to worry about the fuss of baking.
Mix a half cup of creamy peanut butter with a teaspoon of vanilla extract and 5 to 6 tablespoons of your choice of milk until you achieve the desired consistency. Spread the filling on one cookie and top with another.
Apart from satisfying your sweet tooth, natural peanut butter supports the healthy quality of ketogenic cookies. This treat is rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, which is what your body needs.
Cinnamon Cookie Butter Latte
A hot cup of cinnamon cookie butter latte is the perfect final touch to your holiday spread. In a saucepan, heat ¾ cup of milk, a teaspoon of keto-friendly cookie butter, and ¾ cup of coffee. Stir until the mixture simmers, but don’t bring it to a boil.
Pour your latte into a mug and top with some keto whipped cream. Garnish with a dash of cinnamon plus one cinnamon keto cookie, and enjoy this yuletide beverage.
