Thick and Soft Keto Lemon Cookies


In the summer and spring months, there is nothing better than citrus! Maybe I’m just a stereotypical Floridian, but I love the refreshing sweet-tanginess of citrus!

If you’re anything like me and you love citrus too, you will adore these keto lemon cookies! Some of our favorite citrusy recipes are our Low Carb Orange Creamsicle Cake, Creamy Keto Orange Creamsicle Ice Cream, and Sugar-Free Keto Lemonade! If you are craving anything with citrus this summer, be sure to check out these great recipes.

Creating this recipe, I had really high hopes. Of course I always expect everything we make to be great, I was especially excited for this one (maybe because I love citrus… did I already mention that?). When these finally came out of the oven and I first smelled them, I knew they would be delicious!

My tastebuds definitely confirmed what my nose already knew… these keto lemon cookies came out so great! I modeled the thickness and softness of this cookie after our Thick and Soft Keto Snickerdoodle Cookies and I think they turned out with the same consistency and feel.

If you enjoyed our keto snickerdoodles, you will deftly love these keto lemon cookies!!
