Strawberry, vanilla and chocolate lay side by side in this soft, buttery keto neapolitan cookie. The best part, these sugar-free cookies are made from one batch of cookie dough.

Keto Neapolitan Cookies Ingredients

Keto Neapolitan Cookies Directions

  • 1
    Sift together almond flour, coconut flour, and salt. Set aside. I recommend sifting ingredients as it creates a fine, delicate cookie texture.

    Separate dough evenly into three bowls. To the first bowl, mix in vanilla extract. In the second bowl, mix in strawberry extract and 2 drops of pink food coloring. In the third bowl, mix in the melted sugar-free dark chocolate.

    To form the cookies, pinch off equal parts of vanilla, strawberry and chocolate dough (about 15 grams each) and press them together so that they stick together but keep their individual colors. Press the cookie dough into a cookie scoop, tablespoon or roll it into a ball. Place cookie dough ball on a parchment lined baking tray then press down the cookie with the back of a spoon to flatten. Repeat with remaining dough and space cookies about 1 inch apart.

    Once done baking, remove from the oven and let cookies completely cool on the baking tray before transfering to a wire rack. Don't attempt to pick up the cookies before they have finished cooling or else the cookies may break and crumble.

Low Carb Neapolitan Cookies Recipe

These keto neapolitan cookies are soft and buttery. Each layer is colored the classic neapolitan pink, white and chocolate. The pink layer is flavored with strawberry. The white layer is vanilla and the brown layer is chocolate, of course. The combination is just like digging into your favorite ice cream.

Keto neapolitan cookies are easy to make too! They only involve a few simple ingredients. And you will only make up one batch of dough, instead of three separate cookie doughs. The sugar-free neapolitan cookie dough is separated into three equal parts and each is individually flavored - strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. Plus, you don’t need a rolling pin to make this recipe. Simply mold the three neapolitan flavors together in a cookie scoop.

Keto Neapolitan Flavoring

Traditionally neapolitan flavor is strawberry, vanilla and chocolate - three flavors side by side next to each other.

  • Strawberry - To get the strawberry color and flavor, we add a couple drops of pink or red food coloring along with some strawberry extract. You can save 10% off your first order with my code KETOFOCUS-10 at checkout.You can add about 7 drops of the oooflavor drops or 1 teaspoon of strawberry extract if you are using a traditional strawberry extract you would find at the grocery store. The oooflavor drops are concentrated. That’s why they require less.
  • Vanilla - The vanilla cookie is flavored by using vanilla extract. You don’t need to add any coloring to this since the cookie dough is already a white neapolitan color.
  • Chocolate - To flavor these keto neapolitan cookies with chocolate, you have a couple of options. The best option is to melt down ¼ cup of dark chocolate sugar-free chips and mix the melted chocolate into the dough. This creates rich chocolate flavor and produces a dark brown coloring. Instead, you could add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, but the color won’t be as dark as it would if you used melted chocolate.

The Best Way to Shape Neapolitan Cookies

Sure you could layer down each flavor on top of the next and roll it into a cylinder to slice; however, I like to pinch off a little of each flavored dough and press it into a cookie scoop, then release onto a parchment lined baking tray. This way, you get a beautiful, unusual pattern with each cookie.

It’s best to chill the cookie dough before baking. I like to pop it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before baking. This allows for the flavors to meld together. Plus the cookies won’t spread as much when you bake them.
