These low carb cookies are a gold mine!
It took us a few times to get the recipe just right, but we’re glad we did because these keto blueberry lemon shortbread cookies are amazing! They are the perfect combination of sweet, light, crumbly and moist – what else could you ask for in a cookie? We chose to make these shortbread cookies in a basic vanilla flavor and then kicked it up a notch by adding fresh lemon juice that absolutely brought them to life.
We then added a pop of color and more flavor by making a quick blueberry glaze. We were floored when we tasted these blueberry lemon shortbread cookies and we can’t wait to use the recipe in different forms.
We’ve already got plans to repurpose them into some individual fruit cakes for a party next weekend! Recipe coming soon!

It’s all in the sweetener!
In this recipe, we used 2 kinds of Sukrin sweeteners – trusty granulated erythritol and powdered erythritol! Sukrin is a household name in Norway, where it’s the go-to brand of sweetener of many sugar-free products on store shelves.
We make a range of low-carb, zero calorie sweeteners, whole food flours, low-carb, sugar and gluten-free easy-to-bake bread mixes and the most delectable milk chocolates with no added sugar. – from Sukrinusa.com
Luckily, their quality products have found their way to the US with the help of Pernille, who was kind enough to send us a bunch of Sukrin’s sweeteners to try out! We’ve been experimenting and making different sweets for weeks now and have had some awesome results we just can’t wait to share.
Their granulated erythritol was perfect for the base cookie in this recipe, while the powdered erythritol, Sukrin Melis, was just what we needed to make the yummy blueberry glaze that tops off this recipe. Sukrin Melis is very handy to have when a recipe calls for powdered sugar or erythritol. Erythritol is known to be a bit finicky when dissolving, so having it in powdered forms saves time and energy!
We can’t wait to try out their other sweeteners! A whole new world of dessert possibilities has opened up!
If you love blueberries as much as we do, you’ve got to try this keto chia pudding from Keto Cooking Wins. Filled with blueberry flavor, this recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert, or simply as a snack!
- Start off by preheating your oven to 350°F and beating together your softened, room temperature butter and Sukrin erythritol until nice and creamy.
- Then add in your egg and egg yolk along with lemon juice and vanilla. Mix well.
- In a separate bowl, sift your almond flour to get rid of large lumps of almond and then combine that with the rest of your dry ingredients except for xanthan gum.
- Pour your dry ingredients slowly into your wet while beating the mixture continuously.
- When everything is combined, add 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum and mix very well to distribute it evenly.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use an ice cream scoop to measure out same sized cookie dough balls. Flatten each one slightly to ensure each one cooks evenly.
- Bake for about 8-10 minutes and let cool completely.
- To make the glaze, combine coconut oil (melted) with blueberries and Sukrin Melis in a Nutribullet or immersion blender.
- Let this glaze sit on the counter for a few minutes to thicken up. If your kitchen is a little warm, place the glaze in the fridge for a few minutes, checking often and stirring. You want a thicker consistency, but not too thick that you can't glaze the cookies.
- Use about a teaspoon of glaze for each cookie and lay a dollop in the center. Using the spoon, gently push the glaze out to the edges of the cookie and flatten the layer off.
- Place the cookies in the fridge for about an hour so the glaze hardens. The cookies are best cold! Enjoy!

What would be a good substitute for the sukrin sweetner and sukrin melis I can’t find it in any stores. If anyone has found it in stores where did you find them at?
Any type of erythritol will work. Some brands include Swerve, Anthony’s, Truvia, Pyure, Now Foods. You can definitely find some in large supermarkets!
I have made a few keto styled cookies, but these by far are the best I have made. They are DELICIOUS! Thank you for this recipe. For my sweetner I used just plain erythritol and they turned out amazing. Great recipe, for sure a keeper!
That’s so great to hear, Kerri! Thank you so much for the kind words! We’re really glad you love them.
i didn’t have all the ingredients and they still turned out yummy. i didnt have xantham gum or baking powder and used half splenda half truvia.(something about erythirol that doesn’t taste good to me cold and minty so half and half was an ok taste). anyway came out like a sweet biscuit. yumm yumm!
That’s great to hear! Send us a pic, we’d love to see how they turned out 🙂
These look delicious! I have granulated and powdered Swerve available to use. Would the measurements be the same if I used this in place of the Sukrin?
They were delicious!
I’ve used both brands in a few recipes and they measure about the same. They’re both mostly erythritol 🙂
Ill have to look into that sweetener because these cookies are the bomb and I wanna make them ASAP!
