Keto Birthday Cake Cookies

Ever felt like birthday cake in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday when it isn't even your birthday?

Because same.

That's why I decided to whip up these Keto Birthday Cake Cookies. These have all the reminiscent flavours of a birthday cake but in a perfect cookie portion size.  (Not that you have to eat just one)

These keto cookies have a pretty funfetti center and a sweet glaze on top with of course..more sprinkles because you can never have too many.

I previously created a Keto Funfetti Mug Cake and a full-size Keto Funfetti Birthday Cake but with these cookies I wanted to make something that was a little different.

These Low Carb Birthday Cake Cookies are great for birthday parties or to make with your kids (because kids love sprinkles and rainbows and icing..and well, just about everything related to birthdays let's be honest).

The keto friendly sprinkles used in these cookies are AWESOME by the way. They are 100% sugar free yet you'd never know it. They are made by the company “Stoka Nutrition“.

I have not been able to find sugar free sprinkles anywhere else so I was ECSTATIC when I first heard of these. They act just like regular sprinkles and look beautiful!

I'm not sponsored by Stoka Nutrition. They just happened to reach out to me and give me a bottle of their sugar free sprinkles after I was literally going to purchase them a few days later! (Talk about crazy coincidences. Law of Attraction anyone?)

So with that said I am being completely honest when I say how impressed I am with their Sugar Free Rainbow Sprinkles. The possibilities for them are endless.

If you'd like to purchase a bottle of your own sprinkles or any other their other products (their bars and cereal are fantastic as well) you can use the code “SAMMYSAM” at checkout for 20% off. Note that I do not get any commission from this so it's purely a discount Stoka was kind enough to offer for you guys! 🙂

Anyways, back to the cookies! These Keto Birthday Cake Cookies or Keto Funfetti Cookies..whatever you'd like to call them are seriously delicious and make one awesome easy keto dessert you can whip together whenever you get a craving!

Ingredients In Keto Birthday Cake Cookies

  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect frosting every time! **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of trouble ordering the first one so you can order whichever is easier for you!
  • Xanthan Gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give keto baked goods a chewier dough-like texture.
  • Rainbow Sprinkles – Stoka Nutrition makes fantastic sugar free sprinkles you can purchase to bake with. You can use the discount code “SAMMYSAM” at checkout to get 20% off anything on their site. 🙂

Tools I used To Make Keto Funfetti Cookies

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
