Keto Specialty Ingredients for Keto Christmas Cookies Bars, and Candy Recipes
Some of the ingredients used to make Keto Christmas Cookies may not be in your pantry if you are just getting started following a ketogenic lifestyle. You’ll need different kinds of flours, sweeteners, and possibly Xanthan Gum to create keto-friendly recipes in place of your favorite sweet treats. Keep in mind; Keto sweet treats will not taste exactly like regular cookies. Since there is no gluten in keto friendly treats or regular sugar the texture and taste are different. However, when you are craving something sweet and are determined to stay on track, they are an excellent substitute. Not all keto specialty ingredients can be found in local grocery stores, so I’ve included links to purchase from Amazon.
Keto Friendly Flours
I use coconut flour in all of my Keto Christmas Cookies because my oldest daughter is allergic to almonds. Coconut flour is very absorbent so you’ll need only a small amount and it doesn’t measure the same as regular sugar. Almond flour does measure the same as regular flour. Generally, coconut flour is 1/4 cup to 1 cup almond flour if you need to make a substitution.
My Favorite Keto Sweeteners
What are the best Keto sweeteners to use in Keto Christmas Cookies? I’ve listed my favorites below that you can find on Amazon and have shipped straight to your door. Like Lakanto Monkfruit and Swerve products are interchangeable. For example, you can sub Lakanto Monkfruit Golden if a recipe calls for Swerve Brown.
- Lakanto Monkfruit Granulated
- Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered
- Lakanto Monkfruit Golden – this is a keto friendly brown sugar substitute
- Swerve Granulated
- Swerve Confectioners
- Swerve Brown – this is a keto friendly brown sugar substitute
What in the world is Xanthan Gum and why do I need it? Xanthan Gum is a thickening agent used in many soups, stews, and sauces as well as a stabilizing agent in recipes like Keto Christmas Cookies. The Xanthan Gum helps the ingredients to stick together better, and it creates a better texture in many keto recipes. A minimal amount goes a long way. While it may not be available to purchase in your local grocery store, Amazon carries many different options.
Now that you know how about keto specialty ingredients you’ll need, let’s talk about how to make the sweets! In no particular order, here are some of the best Keto Christmas Cookies for the holiday season!
