Keto Sugar Cookies

Start to Finish: 25 minutes

Sugar cookie ingredients:

  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed ghee or coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons granulated sweetener such as Lakanto, or liquid stevia to taste

Icing ingredients (optional):

  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed ghee or coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoon coconut cream (the thick part from the can), room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon raw cacao (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 356 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a bowl or blender, combine all of the ingredients until it forms a dough that holds together when you pinch it. It will still feel slightly crumbly, so work carefully.
  3. Lay out parchment paper and add the dough on top. Lay another sheet of parchment on top and gently roll (you can do this in batches).
  4. Using a cookie cutter or small glass, cut sugar cookies into shapes.
  5. Lift the parchment sheet onto a baking tray and place in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until slightly golden.
  6. Cookies will appear soft. Allow to cool so they harden, then refrigerate for 10-15 minutes before dipping in icing (optional).
  7. Prepare optional icing: In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients until incorporated. Line a tray with parchment.
  8. Dip each chilled cookie into the icing and place on the parchment. When all cookies are dipped, return to the fridge. You can also repeat this step and double dip once the first coating sets.
