Low Carb Thumbprint Cookies

If you’re like me, it’s not the holidays without cookies. Decorating sugar cookies is a family tradition, and I’ve hosted “Cookies and Cocktails” parties as an excuse to bake lots of cookies! Living a low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean giving up your favorites — it just means finding low carb versions of them. These gluten free, low carb thumbprint cookies are the perfect example.

You can use any sugar-free/low carb jam/jelly/preserves you like in these recipes. My personal favorite is the Naked Raspberry Spread from Blake Hill Preserves. Their spreads have no added sugar, artificial colorings, preservatives or sweeteners.

These low carb thumbprint cookies call for low carb powdered sweetener. My favorite is King Arthur Flour’s Baking Sugar Alternative*. It doesn’t come in a powdered version, but did you know you can easily make your own? Simply pulse granulated sweetener in a blender (I used a NutriBullet*) for about 30 seconds until light and fluffy.

These cookies are seriously so good, no one will realize they are low carb and gluten free! They are great for parties, and fit in perfect with a low carb or keto diet as they have just 3 net carbs per cookie!

  • Remove cookies from oven and press a small dent into the center of each cookie. Place 1 teaspoon of jam in each dent.
