Low Carb Keto Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Low Carb Keto Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Soft and delicious keto chocolate sandwich cookies are the perfect treat to satisfy dessert cravings! Low carb and gluten-free, a chocolate cookie sandwich filled with a creamy sugar-free cream cheese filling.

What are your favorite kinds of cookies?

This cookie came about because my daughter was lamenting over the fact she couldn’t have Oreos with all the gluten and sugar. “Well,” I said, “Let’s make our own version!”

It’s so much fun to let kids be creative and really think about what they want as an end product. It turned out, a soft chocolate cookie with a creamy delicious cream cheese filling was really what was on her mind. In fact, that craving turned into one of our favorite desserts, keto chocolate sandwich cookies.

They’re really more of a cross between an Oreo and a whoopie pie. However, after making them many, many times, we much prefer them to either alternative. Why not give them a try?

The Importance of Keto Food Prep

I think you can say it’s important to prepare for just about anything in life. When you make a lifestyle change you want as many advantages in your corner as possible. Therefore food prep is absolutely HUGE when it comes to being successful on a keto diet.

If you’ve read many of my recipe blog posts you’ll know I eat keto, and my daughter eats a slight variation on it for health reasons. My son and husband will eat the meals I prepare but are definitely not strict keto.

It’s difficult to provide good, healthy, whole food options for kids with the barrage of sugar thrown at them every day. The library summer reading program gives coupons for candy bars and ice cream, teachers at school give out candy as rewards, and all picnics and celebrations include candy and gluten-filled sweets.

What can you do? When you’re a kid, it’s even harder to say no to the donut calling your name on the spread at the parade.

Be prepared. For me, that means meal and snack planning every week, with baking and prep time planned into my schedule. If I want to be successful and make good food choices, they have to be easily available right? Moreover, it’s so much easier to ignore the cookies your name when you have a more tempting option available. Like these keto chocolate sandwich cookies.

Soft and delicious keto chocolate sandwich cookies are a mix between keto oreos and keto whoopie pies. Gluten-free and sugar-free with a cream cheese filling, the result is perfect for a keto diet. #ketocookies #ketodesserts

How to make Keto Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

To make keto chocolate sandwich cookies, there are basically two components. First, make the chocolate cookies. Then whip up the filling. Last, once the cookies are cooled, make sandwiches by filling with the delicious cream cheese mixture.

Therefore, let’s start off with the chocolate cookies. To be honest, I can eat these as treats on their own. However, the filling really takes them up a notch and makes them that much more special.

First, preheat the oven to 275 degrees and prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Second, get out a large mixing bowl, and put the melted butter in it. Then dump in all the other cookie ingredients but the almond flour. Stir the almond flour in last.

It’s a pretty quick and easy dough to make. Now, form tablespoon-sized balls out of the dough and place them on a baking pan covered with a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Be sure to flatten them by pushing down on each with the flat bottom of a glass or simply with your hand.

Tip: Almond flours differ, so if the dough seems too dry, you can add in a tablespoon at a time of almond milk. The balls of dough should be able to be pressed down into rounds.

Next, bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes or until the cookies are done. Also, it’s important to let them cool for a few minutes on the pan to harden. Then you will be able to remove them to the racks to cool completely.

How to make the cream cheese filling

First off, for the filling, be sure the ingredients are at room temperature or even slightly above so they can be completely combined without lumps. Now, place the cream cheese, heavy cream, and powdered sweetener in a bowl. Then, use a hand mixer to completely blend for at least 2 minutes. 

Lastly, to assemble! Take one cooled cookie and spread with a good amount of filling, then top with a second cookie. Place it back on the rack or in an airtight container to store. Now repeat until all the sandwiches are filled. Usually, I find it necessary to sample one at this point.

Put the cookies in an airtight container to store in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for a month. I’m a big fan of having all sorts of options in the freezer to set out for guests or myself in an emergency. Enjoy!

Take a bite of a low carb keto chocolate sandwich cookie and your taste buds will thank you. A perfect gluten-free snack with a sugar-free decadent filling. #ketosnacks #ketodesserts #lowcarbdessertsketo

Low carb chocolate cookies

Chocolate cookies are a huge trigger for me so it’s always important to have an option when that craving hits. These cookies are great with the cream cheese filling or why not try to fill them with a good keto ice cream? I don’t think anyone would argue with that!

Share them with friends and family or keep them in portions in the freezer. It’s your choice. Happy baking!

Butter and Jam Keto Thumbprint Cookies

Butter and Jam Keto Thumbprint Cookies

Buttery, delicious, and easy low carb cookies. What could be better? Butter and jam keto thumbprint cookies are melt in your mouth with a zing of strawberry in the middle.

What comes to mind when you think thumbprint cookies? For me, I have a flash of the bakery famous for them in my college town, a Mad-Hatter tea party, and a Christmas cookie exchange.

I do love the versatility of these cookies. The delicious almond flour buttery cookie can be filled with any number of things. I like to use a red jam such as strawberry or raspberry, but you could even use a sugar-free ganache. Get creative!

The other thing I love about thumbprint cookies is that they’re super kid-friendly. Actually, my six-year-old son loves to make them with me, put all the ingredients in, and then say, “Mommy! Can I make the thumbprints?!”

He thinks it’s so much fun to make the thumbprint wells in the cookies, and then he eats spoons of jam while they bake. I don’t mind too much all this jam eating as long as I know what’s gone into it!

We like to use my homemade easy keto strawberry jam recipe, and I can feel good about him eating organic strawberries, chia seeds, with a bit of Swerve sweetener.

Keto thumbprint cookies: a brief history

Did you know that in Sweden, thumbprint cookies are called “Hollongrotta”, which means raspberry cave? I love that! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely one of those people who gets excited about the etymology of words. Where do words come from? How are they similar/different in different languages? 

In Europe, it is argued whether thumbprint cookies originated in Poland, Sweden, or from Jewish communities in Eastern Europe. At least most agree they were first made in the 19th century. However, whether you call them Polish tea cakes, birds’ nests, or raspberry caves, I think we can all agree we like to eat them!

In the United States, thumbprint cookies have become a holiday staple for many families in various forms.

I used to love to help my mother make tons of cookies and go to the church cookie exchange! We would take one kind of cookie and return home with dozens of cookies of all sorts. Inevitably, the group would include jam thumbprints as well as the other popular peanut butter blossoms version (see my version of Keto Peanut Butter Blossoms here).

Traditional butter and jam thumbprint cookies are a low carb holiday staple! Christmas, Easter, or the Fourth of July, these kid-friendly gluten-free cookies will disappear fast. #ketocookies #lowcarbcookies

To make keto thumbprint cookies you’ll need :

How to make keto thumbprint cookies

To begin, preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and take out two baking pans. I like to line them with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. 

Second, take out a large bowl and plop in the softened butter, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Mix that together well with a hand mixer or really strong arm and spatula. Then, once it’s completely combined with no lumps, continue to mix and add in the egg until it’s well-incorporated.

After that, measure in the almond flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until it all up until it forms the cookie dough. Super simple so far, right?

How to prepare keto thumbprint cookies to bake

Next, roll the dough into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and set them on the baking tray about 2 inches apart. Now, wet your thumb slightly and push it in the center of each ball to make a little well for the jam. This is the part kids love to help with!

Now for the jam! Carefully put about half a teaspoon of jam in the well of each cookie. Try to keep it in the center of the cookie, but as my son says, “They don’t all have to be perfect! I’ll just eat that one.”

Lastly, bake them off for 12-14 minutes in the 325-degree oven. Be sure to let them cool for 10 minutes on the tray before removing to the cooling racks or they’re likely to fall apart.

The recipe makes about 30 delicious low carb cookies!

Keto Cut Out Sugar Cookies

Keto Cut Out Sugar Cookies

Preview: Keto cut out sugar cookies are a must around any holiday! Buttery deliciousness and the perfect family activity. Kids love to roll these out and select the shapes. Frosted or not, these are the perfect holiday cookies!

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me!

It’s the 12 Days of Keto Christmas Cookies, and we’re on cookie number 9! Keto cut out sugar cookies are a necessity in our household. In fact, I grew up on Grandma’s cut out butter cookie recipe. They’re my dad’s favorite cookie at Christmas, and we’ve used the same cookie cutters since I was a small child. 

Now that my daughter and I eat gluten-free and sugar-free we needed another option! It’s a family tradition to make the holiday-shaped cookies and frost them uniquely. Don’t you think?

To be sure, it’s extremely difficult for me not to eat the dough, lick the frosting, and eat several cookies during this process. It’s even harder for a kid not to lick the spoon and sample the cookies as they’re made! So many of my recipes come out of the need to provide a healthier, tasty alternative for my girl.

Family traditions: Frosting the cookies

Frosting the cookies at Christmas is a laughter-filled, colorful tradition kids look forward to every year! For me, Christmas traditions are all about family and home and being present to enjoy time together. We have the busy outdoor activities like ice skating, snowman building, Christmas lights viewing, and so many more. Don’t neglect the cozy around the kitchen projects!

Whether we like it or not, food brings us together. Of course, I love food as does anyone, but it makes it difficult for those with allergies or health restrictions. This recipe gives us a chance for everyone in the family to participate and share in laughter together.

When we make cookies, I let the kids select the frosting colors to use. We generally separate the frosting out into about 4-5 different colors. You can find some great natural food coloring options or use the normal set from the grocery store.

How to make keto cut out sugar cookies

Cut out cookies can seem intimidating, but they’re really actually pretty easy! All you have to do is follow the steps, and you’ll get a pretty, buttery, cookie anyone would love to eat at a holiday party.

First, get all the ingredients and supplies out and preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Second, prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Then, take out a large bowl and beat together the butter and sweetener. Add the eggs in one at a time beating them as you go.

After that, take another bowl and whisk together the almond flour, gelatin, salt, and baking soda. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix them in slowly until everything is fully incorporated and a dough is formed. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.

I take half the dough out to roll to about 1/4 of an inch thick and leave the rest in the fridge to continue to chill.

Tip: Roll the dough out sprinkling on some extra almond flour. If it sticks you can roll it between two pieces of parchment paper handling it as little as possible.

Have all members of the family pick out their favorite cookie cutters and cut out the cookies! Put them on the baking sheets about an inch apart, and bake them for 10-12 minutes or until the edges only just start to brown.

Let the cookies cool for 20 minutes on the pan until they can be moved to a cooling rack. Once completely cooled, you and the kids can top your cookies with your favorite keto frosting. Have fun decorating!

Family time around the holidays

I have some of my favorite family memories around Christmas time. It can be difficult to plan activities and be actively involved with the kids and other family members, but it is so important! Not everything has to be Pinterest perfect, mine are not. However, my kids LOVE to take time to play a board game, play basketball, or make cookies. My mindset has to change to make time to separate work time and time for family.

Cookie baking and everyday activities are priceless memories to a child when you do them together! So have fun, be silly, and enjoy your time together! They will remember it!

That amazing smell of cinnamon, toasted nut goodness. All the better it’s a little cool, or it’s just rained and there’s a woman playing Celtic harp just down the lane. Your nose turns toward the scent, and you walk as though in a trance. Magically, there’s a girl in a fairy costume passing out free samples. Nine times out of ten I get the free sample and then a bag for the road. I want to keep the glorious smell and picture with me as long as I can.

These low carb cinnamon pecan cookies transport me back to that moment in time. The cinnamon nuttiness, the crunch of the nut in the soft cookie, is the perfect fall snack to pair alongside your coffee or tea.

How to make low carb cinnamon pecan cookies

I love these cookies! To begin with, they are so super simple to make. Quick and easy goes a long way in this house and these cookies certainly fit into that category.

First, get out all your ingredients and melt the four tablespoons of butter. Get out a large mixing bowl and place the butter in it. To the butter add all the other ingredients except for the pecans and almond flour. Then, stir in the almond flour until everything’s well-combined. Now, form one tablespoon sized balls out of the dough and place them on a baking pan covered with a silicone baking mat (or ungreased pan).

Next, it’s time for decoration! Flatten the cookies by placing a pecan half on each or kris-crossing with a fork if not using pecans. If the edges crack slightly, you can shape those back into a circle. Last but not least, bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-20 minutes or until done.

The cinnamon stick was light, curled around itself like a brittle roll of papyrus. Not a stick at all, Lillian remembered as she looked closer, but bark, the meeting place between inside and out. It crackled as she broke it, releasing a spiciness, part heat, part sweet, that pricked her eyes and nose, and made her tongue tingle without even tasting it.

What are your favorite low carb snacks?

I definitely have my go-tos for a quick afternoon keto snack. Do you rely on the same thing most days to stay consistent or do you like to mix things up? I admit, it definitely depends on how much time I have to prepare for the week and what I have on hand. Planning and preparation are key for me in sticking to the keto lifestyle and feeling my best. Truly, I think organization skills go a long way with anything in life, and I’m constantly trying to get better in that area! Also, the seasons help with motivation in my recipe planning, and cinnamon and spice are great comforts to me in fall.

These low carb cinnamon pecan cookies are so quick and easy you could be enjoying one in half an hour. Yum!
