2. Oatmeal Cookies (Keto)

Deliciously chewy with a delectable crunch on their insides, these oatmeal cookies are made with almond flakes and coconut flakes, rather than oats.

And, because it is sugar free, a granulated sugar substitute is needed. For this recipe, you can use any kind of alternative, but we recommend an erythritol monk fruit sweetener blend.

Coated with coconut flakes, the added crunch is divine but the real magic is in how chewy these delights are.

You can also make this recipe gluten-free if required by ensuring the oat bran used was produced in a certified gluten-free space. 

4. Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here, we have another delicious and healthy version of the classic, popular treat.

These chocolate chip cookies are made using low carb flour, such as carbalose flour, baking soda, butter, a granular white sugar alternative, a brown sugar substitute, two eggs, vanilla, and sugar free chocolate chips.

You can also add some chopped nuts if you like. What you get are cookies that are just as delicious as the traditional treat but with fewer calories.

This recipe includes palm shortening, black cocoa powder, coconut cream, as well as both powdered and granulated forms of swerve, a sugar substitute. Healthy and still tasting like Oreos is a win in our books!

6. Lemon Cookies (Slice And Bake)

Something light for the summer months next with these delicious slice and bake sugar free lemon cakes. Again using granular Swerve as a sugar substitute, this recipe works well in an air fryer, but only if you’re making a small batch.

If you’re making a whole batch for a football team, you better bake them in the oven. These cookies are gluten free and nut free without any use of almond flour (which is used in many sugar free cookie recipes).

You can also swap out the butter for something else to make them dairy free.

But, they still taste as sweet as traditional sugar cookies, just with fewer calories. They are very soft and chewy and each one contains only 1 gram of net carbs.

If you fancy adding some toppings, we recommend adding some peanut butter or sugar free dark chocolate. Keto-friendly cream cheese is another tasty option.  

8. Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Although not as popular as the sacred chocolate chip cookie, raisin cookies are not far behind. And, these oatmeal raisin cookies are some of the best we have ever tried!

They are chewy and wonderfully soft with the raisins adding a beautiful sweetness to every bite. The oatmeal offers a divine creaminess in the cookies that is like nothing else.

With a sprinkling of cinnamon on top, these cookies are perfect comfort food, especially around the holidays.

Did you know snickerdoodles can be sugar free? Well, you do now! If you didn’t know, a snickerdoodle is a cookie that is usually made with sugar, butter, and flour, before being rolled in cinnamon sugar and then baked.

Instead of sugar, Erythritol is used in this recipe to provide the sweetness we all crave.
