Tips for baking the best conversation heart keto sugar cookies:
- You’ll notice that your keto sugar cookie dough will be more fragile than traditional dough so be sure to refrigerate it well so it’s super cold. You’ll also want to use coconut flour to dust both the rolling surface and rolling pin. For even more non-stick power, line a baking sheet with parchment paper before laying out the cookies for baking.
- Remembering that the cookie dough is fragile, be sure to let the cookies completely cool on the cookie sheet before moving them to a cooling rack. This is an important step so that the cookies don’t fall apart.
- When melting the white chocolate chips, only microwave 15 seconds at a time until just melted and smooth. I actually ruined a bag by microwaving for too long, so learn from my mistake. 😂
- For the pastel-colored icing, I used the back of a spoon to spread evenly. For the red lettering, you’ll want to have a pastry bag with a thin tip on hand.

My teammate Jenna also baked these keto sugar cookies and this is her reaction:
How fun are these?! What a cool recipe – I love how these turned out! These are so totally spot-on for sugar cookie flavor; you can’t even tell they are keto! I love that it uses a combination of almond and coconut flour, as well as almond and vanilla extract! It has that classic sugar cookie flavor and consistency.
For the frosting, the ChocZero chips melt easily and smoothly. The kids and I had a blast decorating the cookies with it. I couldn’t find my tiny tip for my pastry bag, so I cut off the corner tip of a sandwich bag instead and it worked great!
