The best keto gingerbread cookies recipe to make your holidays merry and bright. These low carb sugar-free gingerbread cookies have just 1.4 net carbs each!


  • 2 1/4 cups Almond Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 cup Swerve
  • 3 tbsp Butter (softened)
  • 1 large Egg (at room temperature)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract


  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the almond flour, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, nutmeg, and baking powder.

  2. In a large bowl,  or mixer to beat the butter and swerve for 1-2 minutes, until fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix in the almond flour mixture until a dough forms.

  3. Form the dough into a ball and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to bake.

  4. Preheat the to 350 degrees F.Spray a cookie sheet to my favorite use a silicone baking mat

  5. Place the ball of dough between two large pieces of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Roll out to 1/4 in thickness. Use cookie cutters to cut out cookie shapes and transfer them to the baking sheet. When you’ve cut out all the shapes you can, re-form the remaining dough into a ball, roll it out again, and repeat, until you’ve used up all the dough.

  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden on the edges. Cool on the cookie sheet before handling or frosting.

  7. Optional step: If you want to frost and decorate!
