Lemon Keto Cookies

I love playing with and creating recipes to make them my own. Ever since I started watching my carbs, I have been researching and creating a whole new type of dessert for myself. This has been a great journey because my son Trystan who is gluten intolerant can also eat everything that I create on my “keto” menu. These cookies are fresh and not overly sweet. The glaze on top adds a sweet and sour feature.

Lemon Cookies

  • 1/2 cup Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 10 tbsp erythritol, powered
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups almond Flour
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice or one large lemon juiced

Lemon Glaze

  • 1/4 cup erythritol, powered
  • 1-1/2 tbsp Lemon Juice


  • Cream the butter, cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest together with the powdered erythritol until smooth.
  • Add the egg and mix until well-combined.
  • Add the almond flour and mix. The dough is fairly soft at this stage.
  • Wrap it in cling film and place either in the fridge for 20 – 30 minutes or in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
  • Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper. Form 24 cookie dough balls and place them on the trays, flattening them slightly with your hand.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned at the bottom (and ever so slightly browned on top).
  • Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  • Stir together the lemon juice, powdered erythritol and lemon zest for the glaze and spread over the cooled cookies.

    These sound delicious! I am working to reduce my carb intake and I need to try these! Thanks so much for sharing on the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies Party!

    I would love to have you join us on Farm Fresh Tuesdays each week and share your wonderful posts!

  2. Wow! Such a good idea to make low-sugar and gluten free cookies. I’m watching my sugar while battling candida, and my son also is gluten intolerant, so something like this would be a win for us.

    Thanks for sharing at the Homestead Blog Hop!
