One of the reasons keto is here to stay is you can have your cookies and eat them too. It all comes down to how you swap out sugar!
For this recipe, we use the brand Swerve, which contains erythritol. You can learn more about what keto sweeteners we recommend here. Hint: not all are created equal, and you want to use the right ones if you're going to be in ketosis.
These keto sugar cookies are always a hit at Konscious Keto. We love to whip up a batch and dunk them in our keto coffee.
Keto Sugar Cookies
Using different cookie cutter shapes can bring these keto sugar cookies to life all year round.
We love to use stars and stripes in July, and some Christmas tree cutters in the winter to bring a little extra magic to these treats.

In this recipe, the glaze is optional (we love both ways). So don't let ingreidents or sweetness hold you back from adapting this recipe to your preference.
