easy keto gingerbread cookies

Let the holiday baking begin!

Who’s ready for cookie season? The great news is you can stay on track with keto eating while eating Christmas cookies! Keto baking can sometimes get a little tricky, but luckily these delicious homemade keto gingerbread cookies are EASY to make! You can even roll them out into adorable little gingerbread men for a yummy low-carb Christmas cookie idea.

The taste and texture are so good and beaming with ginger, clove, and cinnamon flavors, just like traditional gingerbread. If you roll them a little thicker like I did, the texture is soft and a little chewy.

Hip Tips:



  • Make sure to allow for enough CHILL time in the fridge for the dough. This will help the dough become more solid and less sticky to roll out into shapes.

  • Roll cookies between two sheets of parchment paper.  This will help avoid sticking because often the texture of almond flour dough can stick a little. I also cut out the shapes using this gingerbread man cookie cutter on parchment paper and then just shifted the paper onto the baking sheet

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!

Fiber and erythritol, the main ingredient in Swerve, do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.

Oh, SNAP! These are great cookies!

I do love a good gingerbread cookie, and if you’re craving one – try these! I love that these are simple to make and turned out so cute!  Baking gingerbread cookies is such a fun tradition at Christmas time, and this is a fun keto baking idea to get the family involved – enjoy!
