Snowball cookies are a holiday classic! They’re really fun to make, they taste incredible, and for many, trey are tradition. We love snowball cookies because they are somewhat unique.

They are crunchy but not dry. They’re perfectly light and airy but are also satisfying. Because they’re so great, we knew that we needed to make a keto friendly version so that we could enjoy this holiday classic.

As I mentioned, these cookies are super fun to make! The recipe isn’t complicated at all and you don’t need a bunch of recipe-specific ingredients. All in all, keto snowball cookies are one of our favorite cookies to make, especially during the holidays.

Best POWDERED Sweetener For Keto Snowball Cookies

The most important part of these cookies is the powdered sweetener that makes these snowball cookies “snowballs.” Not only does powdered sweetener give these classic keto snowball cookies their classic look, but also (and maybe most importantly), their great taste. I am a firm believer that anything dusted with powdered sweetener is good. 

So since the powdered sweetener is super important for these cookies, we used the best! Specifically, we used Lakanto’s Powdered Monkfruit which is a powdered sugar substitute. 

Lakanto’s powdered Monkfruit has the same texture as powdered sugar, the same consistency, and has an amazingly great taste, all while being zero glycemic, completely natural, and 100% keto friendly. 

We absolutely love Lakanto and all of the incredible Monkfruit products that they make. We use some form of their sweetener in every single dessert recipe that we make because it really is the best.

If you want to try Lakanto’s Monkfruit, or if you just need to restock, shop their website and use our code, “BUTTERTOGETHER” at checkout to save 20% on your entire order!

Can You Make These Keto Snowball Cookies Ahead?

Absolutely! These keto snowball cookies are really easy to make ahead and freeze if you plan on keeping them around for a while. Just be sure to store them properly in an airtight container. Additionally, they keep for about four-five days if stored in an airtight container in the fridge.

Variations To This Recipe

Another great thing about this classic keto snowball cookie recipe is that it is easily customized to suit your taste or needs.

You can make these cookies with no nuts as directed in the recipe, or you can add in your favorite kind of nut if you prefer. One cup of your favorite kind of chopped nuts will make these keto snowball cookies taste incredible. We love these cookies with chopped walnuts, chopped pecans, chopped almonds, and even chopped macadamia nuts. There’s really no way you can go wrong, but our favorite variation is probably the chopped pecan version.

In addition to adding nuts, you can also change the flavor of these cookies by making chocolate snowball cookies or even ginger snowball cookies!
