Hot Chocolate & Christmas Keto “Sugar” Cookies
Cozy up in front of the fireplace this holiday season with some delicious hot chocolate (based off the Charlie Foundation recipe) and Christmas Keto “Sugar” Cookies.
Keto Hot Chocolate 3 : 1
Use either cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder. I’m usually not a fan of Hershey’s chocolate, but the Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa is easy to find and not nearly as expensive as the raw organic cacao.
In a small sized saucepan over low-medium heat, bring ¾ cup water to a simmer.
Whisk or stir in cocoa powder, heavy whipping cream and Truvia, stirring frequently until mixture is smooth and creamy and chocolate is melted. Takes about 5 minutes.
Garnish with real!!! whip cream (from a spray can) and 3 mini-marshmallows (if your ratio allows you to) for a special treat! I love watching my keto kid smile big as I swirl on the whip cream.

Preheat oven to 350° degree.
Mix Almond flour, Coconut flour, Truvia, Baking Soda and salt and set aside.
Using a mixer or food processor pulse the European butter, egg, vanilla extract and coconut oil.
Add the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate for 30 mins.
Roll the dough in-between two sheets of parchment paper, about ¼ thickness.
Cut into shapes.
Bake in oven at 350° degree for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven, let cool for 5-10 minutes
Glaze & Sprinkles (Optional):
Glaze: Pour Swerve Confectioners sweetener in a small bowl. Add a small amount of water, enough to make a thin glaze. Add a drop or two of food coloring. Spread glaze onto each cookie with a silicone spatula.
Sprinkles: In a small bowl, add one or two drops of food coloring to Truvia, mix well. Sprinkle onto glazed cookies.

Debra & Ken Lane maintain this blog to chronicle their son's journey of living with the rare neurometabolic disorder, Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome (Glut1 DS for short). And hope to raise awareness and understanding of the non-epileptic form of Glut1 DS.
Drake’s Glut1 journey started at the age of 3 with episodes of Ataxia and Dyskinesia. Now at the age of 8 he is 2 years symptom-free — thanks to the right diagnosis and the ketogenic diet.
