Yummy sugar free cookie recipes with stevia

What could be better used for a diet snack than some sugar free cookie recipes? Of course, all of these recipes contain the stevia sweetener.

Bear in mind that the concentration and strength of taste of stevia may differ greatly from one brand to another. Therefore, these recipes only serve as general guidelines: always add your stevia into the mix at the end, so you can taste regularly, and add more of the sweetener when needed. Since stevia is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar, often small quantities will suffice.

If you would like to contribute to the site and share your own sugar free recipes with us (preferably using stevia of course!), please do so via the stevia recipes link. The best recipes will be hand-picked by me and will get to feature on the recipe pages. In the meantime, here are some sugar free cookie recipes to get you started!

Chocolate dipped macaroons with stevia (recipe courtesy of Kate Horning)   

  • 1 cup cashews   stevia macaroons
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 tablespoon white stevia powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Combine coconut and cashews in a food processor and process until ground. Add maple syrup, vanilla, stevia, and melted coconut oil pulse until well combined.

Dip one end of the macaroon in the chocolate and sprinkle with more coconut shreds. Keep refrigerated.


Coconut macaroons with stevia  (recipe courtesy of Rachel Albert)coconut macaroons with stevia  

  • 4 egg whites from large or extra-large eggs (about 1/2 to 2/3 cup)   
  • 1/4 teaspoon white stevia powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar  
  • 1/3 cup honey  
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or alcohol-free vanilla flavoring   
  • 2 cups unsweetened, sulfite-free, finely shredded coconut; additional 1/4 to 3/4 cup if needed   
  • Virgin-pressed coconut oil or palm shortening to grease baking sheets


Start with impeccably clean bowls and utensils. Separate the whites from yolks when the eggs are cold. Crack each egg into a small bowl, then transfer to a 1- to 1 1/2-quart metal, copper, or glass bowl (larger for a double batch). If a yolk breaks, set the entire egg aside for another use, then use a new bowl to crack the remaining eggs. Even a tiny trace of yolk can prevent the whites from forming stiff peaks. Let whites stand at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours. Refrigerate unused yolks and any broken eggs for another use.

Preheat oven to 300F (lower if your oven runs hot). Oil a large cookie sheet, or line with unbleached parchment paper and then oil, or use a Silpat nonstick bake liner.

Using an electric mixer or beaters on medium speed, beat the whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar. Beat until stiff peaks form when mixer is turned off and beaters are lifted.

Gradually add honey, then stevia and vanilla. Turn off mixer. Gently fold coconut in with a wide wooden spoon or stiff rubber spatula. Whites may deflate—don’t panic. Add additional coconut, a little at a time if batter appears wet and loose. You want it a to be stiffer than meringue batter, but not as stiff as cookie dough. To test, place a spoonful of batter on a baking tray. It should stand in a mound 3/4-inch thick. If it threatens to run, add more coconut.

Drop batter by level tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet(s), creating an oval shape, or use 2 spoons to make a round shape or an upward chocolate kiss shape. If the last bit of batter looks too thin, add more coconut.

Bake in the center of the oven until set and lightly brown around edges, 20 to 25 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies from the tray(s) by slipping a thin metal spatula under the edge of each cookie and sawing back and forth. Cool macaroons on wire racks. Store in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 2 weeks, or in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. Freeze for longer storage.

Serve as is, or alongside scoops of Ice Dream, or crumble and fold into freshly churned Ice Dream.

Chocolate dipped eggless macaroons with stevia (recipe courtesy of Rachel Albert)   

  • 1 cup unsweetenened, preservative-free canned coconut milk (regular not lite)  
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon pure stevia extract powder (with nothing added) or clear stevia extract liquid (e.g., NuNaturals or SweetLeaf)  stevia eggless macaroons
  • 1/3 cup honey (raw, unfiltered) or coconut nectar (Coconut Secret brand)   
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract or alcohol-free vanilla flavoring  
  • 1/4 cup unmodified potato starch  
  • 3 cups unsweetened, sulfite-free, finely shredded coconut  
  • 1 1/2 ounces unsweetened baker’s chocolate  
  • Virgin-pressed coconut oil or palm shortening to grease baking sheets


Preheat oven to 350F. Liberally grease a large cookie sheet, line with unbleached parchment paper, or use a Silpat or Exopat nonstick bake liner.

In a medium size mixing bowl combine the coconut milk, honey or agave nectar, stevia and vanilla. Whisk or beat until evenly mixed. Add the potato starch a little at a time, whisking or beating to combine. Fold in the coconut.

Drop batter by level tablespoons onto prepared baking sheet(s) at least 1/2 inch apart. Using your fingers or the back of 2 soup spoons, press each mound of batter upward into a cone-like shape.

Bake in the center of the oven until firm and lightly brown around edges, 20 to 24 minutes. Remove macaroons from the tray by slipping a thin metal spatula under the edge of each cookie and sawing back and forth. Cool on wire racks.

Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over very low heat. When melted remove from heat. One at a time, spoon chocolate over half of each macaroon, dripping the excess back into the pan. Place each chocolate coated macaroon on a parchment lined plate or tray. Repeat with remaining macaroons. Refrigerate until set.

When cool, layer macaroons in a cookie tin or other container with a layer of parchment in between.
