Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies

|Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies

Halloween is almost here! While looking for low-carb alternatives for this festive day, I collected 40 Fabulous Low-Carb & Paleo Recipes for Halloween. Some are my own, but most of them are from my favourite recipe creators.

However, I really wanted to make something specifically for Halloween. While I was looking for inspiration in my recipe magazines I bought during my trip to Greece, I came across Şekerpare, cookies of Turkish origin. I knew what the cookies should look like and just added a spooky twist with simple green matcha icing.

Ingredients (makes 40 cookies):


Note: If you don't have matcha, use cinnamon instead. When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Add Erythritol, stevia and melted coconut oil. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  2. Stir in the pumpkin purée. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  3. Add coconut flour with the spice mix and combine well. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  4. Using a measuring spoon or your hands, form small cookies. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  5. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Top each cookie with an almond. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
    Note: Half way through the baking process, I actually had to decrease the temperature to 150 C / 300 F, as the cookies started to brown. Make sure you keep an eye on them. Coconut and nut flours tend to burn faster. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  6. When baked, remove from the oven and let the cookies cool down. Then, place in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
    Note: Chilling the cookies in the freezer will help the glaze set well. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze. Mix the matcha, powdered Erythritol and melted coconut oil. If you don't have matcha, try cinnamon.
    Note: For smooth texture, Erythritol has to be powdered before making the glaze. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  8. Remove the cookies from the freezer and drizzle the glaze over them.
    Note: Make sure the glaze is chilled before drizzling it over the cookies to ensure it will firm up well. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies
  9. Let the glaze firm up and enjoy!
    Note: Coconut oil melts at 24 C / 76 F. Make sure you keep the cookies in a cool room. |Healthy Keto Halloween Cookies

Good Morning, Martina! I'm trying to branch away from Erythritol because my kids don't like the cooling effect that it gives a lot of baked goods - I plan to get some monk fruit powder today and I want to make these cookies!! However, I noticed in the Complete Guide to Sweeteners that it is 300x as sweet as sugar - whereas Swerve brand erythritol is supposedly only 70% as sweet - so I'm wondering if I need to use less than the 1/2 cup (80g) that is called for in this recipe? Or maybe leave out the liquid stevia drops? Or will it be more of a "taste a little dough and adjust as needed" kind of thing?
And by the way, THANK YOU SO MUCH for including ingredient weights in your recipes! I may be an American but I much prefer cooking - especially baking - by weights rather than cups! Smile


Hi Sarah, thank you for your kind words! The one I've tried, which was Monk fruit powder with some FOS, is indeed very sweet, more like stevia powder so you'll have to use small amounts. I know there are other products out there that may not be as sweet as this one. Make sure you read the reviews (if you buy it on Amazon).
I personally use smaller amounts - even when I use Erythritol, which is supposed to be only 70% as sweet as sugar - I'd say that mostly I use only about a half of it. My advice would be - be careful with stevia and monk fruit powder - too much and the cookies won't be edible. There is also a product called "Just Like Sugar" which I list in my Sweetener Guide and is made with FOS - no cooling effect. Hope you like the cookies! Smile


Looks delicious! Is there anything else I could use instead of coconut oil, however? Thanks!


Thank you Jacky! Yes, you can use ghee or butter if you like Smile


Spooky healthy treats! Smile I tried these with chocolate topping and they were fabulous!
