The Perfect Holiday Keto Cookies

We are entering such a fun food season — when coffee shops and restaurants will have all sorts of special treats to tempt us.

Stay ahead of the curve by remaking your own versions using healthier low glycemic ingredients. These Starbucks Copycat Cranberry Bliss Bars are not only just as festive as the original, they are sugar free, keto friendly, and made with ingredients that will nourish and energize you, rather than leave you with a sugar crash.

The ingredients needed for Cranberry Bliss Bars.

You’ll love these holiday cookies because:

  • They are no-bake! Simply process our Vanilla Bean Cake Mix with cream cheese, unsweetened cranberries, cinnamon, and ginger, and press it into a pan to set into a delicious cookie base!
  • Did someone say WHITE CHOCOLATE? Just buy a sugar free version. Or, get wild and crazy and make these with dark chocolate, if that’s more your jam.
  • Keto Cranberry Bliss Bars are a beautiful and festive treat, perfect for adorning your cookie platters this season.

How to Make Keto Cranberry Bliss Bars

Step 1: Into a food processor bowl, add the Vanilla Bean Cake Mix, along with cream cheese, cinnamon and ginger. Process until fully combined, but not long enough to melt the cream cheese.

Step 2: Add sugar free cranberries into the processor bowl, and process until they are incorporated into the mixture.

Step 1 shows mixing the cream cheese and cake mix in a food processor, and step 2 shows pulsing in cranberries.

Step 3: Press the cookie dough into an 8×8 baking dish. Smooth out the top, and then freeze for about an hour to set the base of these bars.

Step 4: Melt white chocolate with some coconut oil for the decorative top.

Step 3 shows pressing the cookie batter into a pan to set, and step 4 shows melting white chocolate and coconut oil.

Step 5: Add a layer of white chocolate, and then sprinkle on some chopped cranberries. If you’d like these to look like the Starbucks bar, reserve half of the white chocolate to drizzle over the top.

Step 6: Cut these bars as soon as the white chocolate sets. The sooner you can cut them after it starts to solidify, the better bars you’ll have. To cut these nicely, you’ll need the base to be almost frozen, but the white chocolate to still be slightly soft. Once the bars are cut, you can refrigerate them for up to a week or freeze them for up to 3 months.

Create your Perfect Holiday Cookie

The variations for these bars are endless!

  • Try dark chocolate instead of white chocolate for a richer treat.
  • Mix up the fruit — freeze dried raspberries or strawberries also work with these bars.
  • Try some nuts. We think chopped pecans added to both the batter or the topping would be amazing here!
