KETO LEMON COOKIES


In the summer and spring months, there is nothing better than citrus maybe I’m just a stereotypical Floridian but I love the refreshing sweet tanginess of citrus.

Creating this recipe I had really high hopes of course I always expect everything we make to be great I was especially excited for this one maybe because I love citrus did I already mention that? When these finally came out of the oven and I first smelled them I knew they would be delicious.

My tastebuds definitely confirmed what my nose already knew these Keto lemon cookies came out so great I modeled the thickness and softness of this cookie after our Thick and Soft Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies and I think they turned out with the same consistency and feel.

If you enjoyed our Keto snickerdoodles you will deftly love these Keto Lemon cookies.

Maybe the most important ingredient that we used for these Keto Lemon cookies is well lemon we opted to use fresh lemon juice instead of bottled though bottled lemon juice would work fine as well.

The benefits of fresh lemons are similar to the benefits of using any fresh ingredient while cooking. Usually, fresh lemons are more flavorful, have no preservatives or additives, and just taste better overall.

Another great benefit of using fresh lemons is lemon zest we zested a little bit of lemon for these Keto lemon cookies and I think it added to the delicious flavor of these cookies.

In addition one more important ingredient in these cookies is cream of tartar cream of tartar is one of those things that I had never heard of till I started baking frequently.

Basically cream of tartar is an ingredient that helps these cookies to rise while they bake and it also prevents them from burning on the bottom while they bake cream of tartar is not necessarily required to make these Keto Lemon cookies but it will make your cookies turn out even better.

One of the great things about these cookies and most of our recipes for that matter is that they are totally customizable and can be adapted to suit whatever you love. 

If lemon isn’t your thing or if you just want to try something new, you can swap out lemon for orange or lime certain citrus fruits contain some sugar but in small amounts it should not affect your insulin levels or affect your state of ketosis unless you eat the entire batch of cookies then maybe.

No matter what citrus you decide to use these Keto lemon cookies will turn out looking great and tasting delicious.

  • In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients. 
  • In a separate bowl creat together all wet ingredients, including lemon zest.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients into one bowl.
  • Scoop out cookies into 1×1 inch balls.
  • Slightly flatten on a parchment paper lined baking sheet 
  • Note: The cookies won’t rise very much while baking so form them into the desired shape before baking.

KETO GLAZE AND OTHER IDEAS


The most important ingredient when making the keto friendly glaze is definitely Lakanto’s Powdered Monkfruit it tastes, looks, and works just like powdered sugar, just… well, without the sugar. 

In addition to powerderd Monkfruit we used almond milk to create the glaze it worked fine and tasted great but if you are worried about an almond flavored icing you have other options.

You can create a glaze using any other Keto friendly milk, or you could also make a lemon glaze using powdered sweetener and about a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of butter this will obviously result in a more tangy flavor but there is nothing wrong with that.

Finally you could also choose to make lemon crinkle cookies to do this all you will need to do is roll your cookie dough in some powdered sweetener before you bake them. 

The options are endless!

  • Zester – It’s important to have a good lemon zester when you need it this is a great one to have.
  • Cream of tartar – I love using cream of tartar in certain cookie recipes as it helps the cookies to rise more and helps gives a more lighter texture.
