The Simplest Keto Halloween Cookies!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Servings 16 cookies
- 3/4 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cups coconut flour
- 1/4 cups powdered erythritol or sweetener of choice
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder optional – adds the yellow color
- 1 tbsp. orange zest or ½ tbsp. dried orange zest
- 1 dash salt
- 1/8 tsp. xanthan gum
- 1 large egg room temperature, whisked
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tbsp. IMO syrup
- 1 oz. dark chocolate melted
- 1/4 large egg white optional
- 2 tbsp. powdered erythritol optional
- 1/4 tsp. matcha green tea powder optional
- Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Prepare the ingredients.
- Combine the dry ingredients. Add the whisked egg. From here on I recommend using your hands to mix the dough until incorporated.
- Put IMO syrup and butter into a medium-size pot. Heat on medium-high and stir until melted and well combined. Set aside and let cool to room temperature. Add the mixture to the dough and knead until well incorporated.
- Roll the dough into 1/8-inch thick layers. Help yourself with some wrapping foil or parchment paper so the dough doesn’t stick.
- Cut out 16 discs with a 2-inch round cutter or help yourself with a glass. Place the discs on the cookie sheet. Use the spare dough to form pumpkin stems. Press the stems onto the discs.
- Bake for approximately 13 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning. You will want the warm cookies to be soft enough to crave faces.
- Get creative! Use a knife or fondant tool kit to make the cookies alive! Then wait for the cookies to cool down and firm up or add some more decoration.
- On medium heat, melt the chocolate and use it to draw on faces/pumkins.
- Mix the egg white with powdered sweetener until you get a dense white mixture. Use it for drawing. Additionally, mix part of this mixture with matcha powder to color the stems.
- The cookies can sit on the counter over night to get just the right crunch.
