  1. In a Large Mixing Bowl combine the 2 Cups Almond Flour, 2/3 Cup Coconut Flour, 1/2 Teaspoon Salt, and 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda. Whisk the dry ingredients together to blend nicely.
  2. In a Large Mixing Bowl on a Stand Mixer combine 4 Ounces Softened Butter, 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, and 3/4 Cup Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener. Mix together until all of the ingredients are creamed together.
  3. Add the 2 Eggs, 2 Teaspoons of the Pure Vanilla Extract, and 1/4 Teaspoon of Almond Extract, and mix together.
  4. Begin slowly pouring the dry flour mixture into the stand mixer, allowing time in between pours for the ingredients to incorporate well.
  5. Place a piece of plastic wrap on your counter, and take the cookie dough from the stand mixer and form a ball in the center of the plastic wrap. Tightly wrap the plastic wrap around the dough, and place the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill and firm up.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  7. Remove the Dough from the refrigerator, and dust your counter or work surface with a little bit of Coconut Flour to help prevent the dough from sticking to it.
  8. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a 1/4″ thick sheet.
  9. Use a cookie cutter, or the rim of a round drinking class to cut out your cookies. You will need to reform the dough after cutting out the cookies, and then roll it back out and cut some more. You should be able to make 15-20 cookies depending on the size of how you cut them.
  10. Line some baking sheets with parchment paper to help prevent the keto sugar cookies from sticking to them while baking.
  11. Bake the cookies @ 350*F for 13-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven an allow them to cool before icing.
  12. In a stand mixer add 8 Ounces of softened Grass-Fed Butter, 2 Tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream, and 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract. Mix the butter together until smooth. Add in 3/4 Cup of Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit and mix well, then pour in the remaining 3/4 Cup of Lakanto Powdered Monkfruit and mix some more until the frosting forms.
  13. If desired you can add some drops of food coloring of your choice to give the cookies some color. You can even divide the frosting into different bowls and color them different colors to be extra festive.

  1. Can you use a different Keto approved sweetener? I use Sweet Luv for most Keto recipes and would like to try this recipe with that. Can I substitute 1 for 1?

    1. Hi Lisa. I have never heard of Sweet Love. If you try something else and it works for you, let us know too. The Classic Monkfruit measures equal to sugar for sweetness and the confectioners kind says it’s 2:1 ratio (twice as sweet as sugar) FYI. Hope that helps figure out some conversions if you try something else.

      1. Thank you for putting the sugar ratio. Please consider adding it to recipes, as people use a variety of sweeteners, mostly because of personal taste preferences.

  2. Loved these! Made them for Easter!

  3. These are amazing! I made these for a barbeque (for myself) and didn’t feel left out at all.

    I did find the frosting a bit too sweet/with a weird “cooling” sensation so next time I’ll half the amount of powdered sweetener (I used powdered Swerve), and use cream cheese to make the frosting thicker.

    1. So did you substitute swerve for all of the monk fruit in the recipe or just in the frosting? Thank You.

    2. Swerve has that cooling and super sweet after taste no matter if you cut the recipe or not.

  4. Could these be used as a shaped cookie, do they hold their shape well? Thanks

  5. My batter was quite running, didn’t hold shape even after I left in fridge for well over an hour.,
    Put we’re still very good!

  6. My daughter who uses Organic foods uses the all Natural food coloring . I am allergic to red food dye and the natural food derived coloring is much safer for us. Do you use this as well ?

  7. What is the texture of these cookies — are they soft/dense, or more crispy, or does that depend solely on how long they are cooked? Thanks!
