This Keto Eggnog Cookies Recipe is a low carb and keto friendly cookie recipe that your family will love at Christmas and throughout the year!
Ever since I started trying to eat healthier and incorporating a ketogenic diet into our lifestyle, I’ve been on a quest to find genuine recipes that my family will love. One of my hubby’s favorite holiday flavors is eggnog and one of our favorite cookies that incorporates this rich seasonal flavor are these Super Soft Egg Nog Cookies that I shared with you a few years ago.
When I was contacted and asked to consider participating in the Steviva Holiday Keto Blogger Recipe Challenge, I just knew I wanted to make over my Super Soft Egg Nog Cookies recipe and that’s exactly what I did!
I haven’t calculated the nutritional values yet, but you can rest assured that by using almond and coconut flour instead of white flour and substituting the granulated and powdered or confectioners sugars with Steviva™ granulated and powdered sweeteners, you’re gonna save a lot of calories.
Steviva has developed safe, low glycemic, low caloric sweeteners that taste and act just like sugar. Where were these products when I first tried low carb dieting 20 years ago?
Keto Eggnog Cookies Recipe with Eggnog Glaze
The original Egg Nog Cookies Recipe included frosted cookies. I chose to use an egg nog glaze on these cookies instead. Sometimes all that frosting was just a bit much. Unless, of course, you have an insatiable sweet tooth like my husband. If you’d like to try them frosted, read on….
Keto Cream Cheese Egg Nog Frosting
If you’d like to try these cookies with a frosting instead of the glaze, then I’ve got an amazing recipe for you. Instead of just whipping up some cream cheese with your sugar alternative, we’re gonna add a little butter, egg nog and rum extract.
The butter kind of takes the edge (tang) out of the cream cheese frosting and renders a smooth, creamy and perfectly naturally sweet version of cream cheese frosting that you grew up with. Only better!
These Keto Eggnog Cookies turned out super soft and a wonderful nutty treat. You can definitely taste the hint of coconut from the coconut flour and the nutty taste from the almond flour. There’s also a hint of eggnog and vanilla. The Steviva Brand of sweeteners worked perfectly in this recipe, without the aftertaste you get from artificial sweeteners.
