Christmas Cookies, Keto Vanilla Almond Christmas CookiesDr Jockers Comments:

This is an amazing holiday style cookie that is completely grain and sugar free.  It uses a non-sugar, natural sweetener in stevia as well as monk fruit and erythritol.  Grains contain starchy carbs and are inflammatory to the body and the intestinal system.  A healing diet looks to remove the grains and focus on good fats like coconut oil, grass-fed butter in this recipe.

This is an incredible cookie with a very buttery flavor.  Getting a high quality grass-fed butter/ghee makes this recipe that much better.  You and the family will absolutely love this!

  1. Hi Dr. Jockers,
    Do you ever have concern about the amount of almond flour/meal that a lot of Paleos use because of the high omega 6 content? Also, wouldn’t cooking with it or heating it damage the fat in it?

    1. Hey Jackie,

      I don’t recommend consuming much almond flour/meal due to the omega 6 and that many can develop food sensitivities to nuts from too much nut consumption. This isn’t a healthy recipe but it is much better than using grains.

      1. Thank you for the recipe. I tested allergic to coconut several years ago and have not been retested, but would like to know what I can substitute for coconut flour. Additionally, can I substitute olive oil for coconut oil in other recipes. Thanks!

      2. You say that this is completely grain free, however I learned from you, and confirmed with the company, that Honest brand uses corn fiber even though the ingredients says vegetable fiber. And, corn is a grain, not a vegetable. So, I don’t get it. I truly appreciate all that you do for our health. Can you help me understand about the grain free terminology containing corn?

  2. Thanks for the recipe; the cookies like very good. What size should the cookie dough balls be and about how many cookies should be the yield for this recipe?

  3. Your comments say the recipe uses monk fruit and erythritol but they are not listed in the ingredients. Am I missing something?
