Over the past year, we’ve made a lot of keto cookie recipes.
Most of them are pretty easy and don’t require a lot of work.

But this time we wanted to try something that’s a little bit on the fancy side.
Enter: Keto black & white cookies in a checkerboard style.
 
Keto Black And White Cookies
 
They are absolutely perfect for the holidays as they will definitely be an eyecatcher on every table.
And they are super fun to make! Once you know how they’re done, they’re pretty easy to make as well.

Bonus tip: You can make other shapes as well, they don’t have to be checkerboard style!
The ones below for example we’re made with ordinary cookie cutters.

  • KETO BLACK AND WHITE COOKIES INGREDIENTS:

    This section is where I share a few suggestions and explanations for the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe.

    (You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card embedded below this section).

  • finely ground almond flour:
    The finer the almond flour, the better.
    I recommend looking specifically for almond flour, not almond meal.
  • powdered erythritol:

    Why do I love Erythritol so much?
    In my opinion, Erythritol is the best keto-friendly sweetener.
    – it doesn’t spike your blood sugar,
    – it’s completely safe and
    – has a very fresh & natural sweet taste.

    Because of its natural origin and natural production process (fermentation), I also consider erythritol to be paleo-friendly.

    You can use other keto-friendly sweeteners that won’t spike your blood sugar as well, but be aware that you may have to add more or less sweetener if you do so.

    Erythritol is about 70% as sweet as sugar whereas other keto-friendly sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia are much sweeter than sugar.
    Keep that ratio in mind when using a 1:1 sugar replacement.

  • softened butter
  • baking cacao powder/ dutch processed cacao powder/ raw unsweetened cacao powder
    Make sure the cacao powder has no additional sugar added.
  • rum flavoring
    If you can’t find rum flavoring and want to use rum extract, just make sure to use a bit more of the rum extract.
    The rum flavoring from Dr.Oetker that I used has a stronger flavor than most rum extracts.
  • vanilla flavoring
    Same as for the rum flavoring – if you use vanilla extract and not vanilla flavoring, use more of it.

    Keto Black And White Cookies

    Yields15 Servings
    Prep Time20 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time30 mins

    Ingredients for the Basic Dough:
     ¾ cup finely ground almond flour (3.5oz/100g)
      cup powdered erythritol (2.5oz/70g)
     7 tbsp soft butter (3.5oz/100g)
    Additions for the Black Dough:
     2 drops rum flavoring
    Additions for the White Dough:

    Instructions:
    1

    Beat the butter with the powdered erythritol until it's pale and fluffy.
     

    2

    Fold in the almond flour until you get a smooth dough.
     

    3

    Separate the dough into 2 parts.
     

    4

    Add the cacao powder as well as the rum flavoring to one part of the dough.
    Mix until you get a smooth dough.
     

    5

    Add the vanilla flavoring to the other part of the dough and knead until you get a smooth dough.
     

    6

    Wrap both parts in plastic foil and chill them for 1 hour in your fridge.
     

    7

    After the hour is over, preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
     

    8

    Make the checkerboard cookies or make other black & white cookie shapes.
    The best way to show you how to make checkerboard cookies is by showing you this Youtube video.

    If you don't want to spend too much time on the cookies (checkerboard cookies are a little bit more time-intensive) you can also use normal cookie cutters and make beautiful black & white cookies that way.
    Simply place the black cookies on top of the white cookies or vice versa. Use egg wash in between the cookies to make them stick together.

    Bake in your preheated oven for approx. 10 minutes.

    Q: How do you include Erythritol in your calculations?

    A: The short answer is: I don’t, and I can tell you why.

    
Erythritol is a sugar alcohol which your body can’t digest.
    If you ingest it, it won’t spike your blood sugar & it won’t release insulin (which is a good thing if you want to stay in ketosis).

    It passes through our system basically “untouched”.
    Because of this, you can subtract the carbs from erythritol completely, which is what I always do.
