How to Make Pumpkin Keto Cookies
Making the Cookies
Take a mixing bowl and add the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Mix everything together until it's well combined.
In another mixing bowl, we'll combine the wet ingredients. Add the egg, coconut oil, sugar-free syrup and vanilla extract. Give them a good stir.
Next, combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix them together. You'll want to keep mixing until you get a lump-free and smooth dough. Cover the bowl and place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking tray with a baking sheet.
Once your dough is ready, roll it out until it's ¼ inch thick. Here's the fun part! Cut the dough into different shapes using cookie cutters. If you're making these for Halloween you can use all kinds of spooky cookie cutters.
Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake them for around 20 minutes until slightly golden brown. Allow them to cool to room temperature while you work on the icing.
Making the Icing
In a mixing bowl combine the Erythritol, egg white powder (or meringue) and xanthan gum with 4 tablespoons of water. Mix everything together well.
If you're using a bunch of different colors, divide the icing into different bowls. Add the food coloring to each bowl and mix well.
Once the pumpkin spice keto cookies reach room temperature decorate them with the different color icings.
