Having a low carb Valentine’s Day? Bake these conversation heart cookies for an extra sweet treat!
If you’re into keto baking, here’s a fun keto dessert idea to create for Valentine’s Day! ❤️
Consider baking your keto-loving Valentine some cute conversation heart cookies using low-carb ingredients! This sugar-filled holiday is normally focused on treats that are off-limits, but not today!
You’ll be able to indulge in these tried and true keto sugar cookies that are made using heart-shaped cookie cutters for the holiday! Outside of just how adorable these Valentine’s Day cookies are, the texture is soft, chewy, and overall so delicious.
We have featured this yummy sugar cookie recipe in the past during Christmas, but today I’m using our keto sugar cookie dough as my base and then creating a simple melted white chocolate icing!
The last step to making these Valentines cookies will be whipping up a quick buttercream frosting. Then, pipe on fun lettering to complete the conversation heart vibes going on here!
Hooray for melted sugar-free white chocolate chips!
This simple white chocolate icing is made from melted keto white chocolate chips. This sugar-free icing takes these keto sugar cookies to the next level! I love how ChocZero white chocolate tastes so much like traditional chocolate chips, but is completely keto-friendly and sweetened with monk fruit!
When you melt these chips and add a little bit of food coloring, it becomes a super easy and genius way to top keto sugar cookies- yippee!
Tips for baking the best keto conversation heart 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.
- Remember that the cookie dough is fragile, so 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 your Valentine’s cookies don’t fall apart.
- When melting the white chocolate chips, only microwave for 15 seconds at a time until just melted and smooth. I 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 the icing evenly on the conversation heart cookies. 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 the tiny tip for my pastry bag, so I cut off the corner tip of a sandwich bag instead and it worked great!
