The occurrence time is the biscuit time. Or apple baking time. Of course, there is crepe time. Most importantly, we eat sweets that are more beneficial to us than they actually are. With these three low carbohydrate Christmas treats, you can eat snacks at ease!

There are many delicious foods in the Christmas bakery.

Cinnamon star on the board


On Christmas Eve, we jump from one plate of biscuits to the next, cross the Christmas market, and use every opportunity to nibble according to all the trading skills.

The original plan of “eating only one biscuit today” dissipated slowly and firmly in big cities like sleet. From time to time, there will be a feeling of uneasiness. The plan for next summer may be very tight.

Of course, this is partly because cinnamon stars, roasted almonds or roasted apples are not low calorie Christmas gifts. Then, most of us fall into the well-known attitude of “it doesn’t matter now anyway”, so it is legal to completely lose nutritional control before the end of the year.

Others kept trying to eat less sweets, but they gave up the next meal or the sweat on the treadmill with a guilty conscience.

Of course, there are also healthy and mediocre people, who only eat cookies when they really feel they need them, and it is easy to skip the next Christmas.

But since I belong to category 1 and category 2 at the same time, I always try to develop new “healthier” recipes during Christmas. They taste equally good and won’t make me feel guilty.

These three low carbohydrate adventure snacks may have low sugar content, but that doesn’t mean you should eat a lot. Because if you want to eat completely calorie free food at Christmas, you should probably buy an ice cube tray instead of a cookie cutter.; -)


Low carbohydrate cinnamon star

Low sugar cinnamon star


Cinnamon star is one of my favorite cookies in winter. I have developed a low carbohydrate cinnamon star recipe for you so that you can eat one or another cinnamon star this year without feeling guilty.

mixed ingredients

  • 350 – 375 grams of almond powder (not scalded)
  • 150g
  • 1 pinch of espresso powder
  • 3 proteins (m)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. First separate the eggs and beat the three proteins until hard. Then sift the powdered sugar into the beaten protein and stir it slowly with a spoon.
  2. Then take about 6 tablespoons from the mixture and leave it as glaze.
  3. Mix cinnamon powder, almond powder, espresso powder and salt, and carefully mix them into the egg white mixture.
  4. Then put the dough into a 6L freezing bag, roll it out with a bag about half a centimeter thick and refrigerate it for half an hour (freezing bag is the ultimate skill to avoid mess in the kitchen!)
  5. Now preheat the oven to a maximum of 110 degrees. Set aside 2 tablespoons of biscuit knives for later use.
  6. Then take the dough out of the refrigerator (or from the cold balcony) and cut both sides of the freezing bag. Now press it briefly into the powdered sugar to avoid the dough getting sticky.
  7. Place the cut cinnamon star on a baking tray lined with baking paper and spread with egg white powdered sugar.
  8. Now roast cinnamon in the oven for 25 minutes. Check the temperature after 15 minutes and cover the stars with baking paper to prevent the glaze from turning too brown.
  9. At the end of baking time, cinnamon star is often a little soft! Don’t let this upset you. The asterisk will harden when it cools.


Low carbohydrate roasted Pecan

Low carbohydrate roasted Pecan


Roasted nuts are very popular in every Christmas market! They are not only very delicious, but also real sugar bombs because of their sweet coats. Although this recipe won’t make roasted nuts calorie free, it does make their sugar content lower than the original.

Which nut you use depends on you. Of course, you can use almonds in a classic way, or mix different types of nuts. I use pecans. Roasted nuts can also be sent out in small bags for Christmas!

50 pieces of ingredients

  • 200g nuts (pecans, almonds or walnuts)
  • 150g – or replace part with coconut sugar
  • 1 pinch Speculoos spice
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 30 ml water


  1. First, put xylitol, salt and cinnamon into the pot with water.
  2. Heat until the liquid begins to boil. Now add nuts to make sure they don’t stick together. Stir regularly until the sugar crystallizes again.
  3. The important thing is that the pot should not be too hot, so that xucker will not start smoking.
  4. Only when xucker melts completely again will the nuts be ready to be placed on a separate baking paper.
  5. It is important that nuts do not stick together, otherwise it will be difficult to separate once cooled down.
  6. It’s best to soak the pot in hot water overnight.


Low carb baked apple, almond and cinnamon stuffing

Low carbohydrate roasted apple


What’s better than baking an apple? Well, of course: two baked apples! However, in the Christmas market, roasted apples filled with almond candy are more like main meals than fruit snacks.

However, you only need to exchange some ingredients to make delicious desserts from roasted apples in the calorie trap without feeling guilty!

mixed ingredients

  • 2 medium-sized apples
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tbsp almond powder
  • 1 tbsp almond slices
  • 3 tablespoons raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and circulate air. Cut off the “top” of the apple and excavate it. Halve the second apple and cut it into small cubes.
  2. Then bake almond slices in coconut oil in a saucepan until they turn light brown. Then put it aside.
  3. Now put the cut apple into the pot with cinnamon and sugar and stir. Then pour some almond slices, almond powder and raisins (optional) into the pot and heat briefly.
  4. Then put the roasted apple into a fireproof bowl in the oven and bake it for 25 minutes.
