It’s hard to resist the temptation of food around the holidays. I don’t know if it has something to do with weather changing or that we associate memories with certain types and flavors during this time period. 

Or maybe it has something more psychological happening on my end where thoughts turn nostalgic and I crave the foods I grew up with.

But cheating on keto means a blood sugar spike that leads us back into craving even more sugary carbs. It’s why creating holiday keto recipes is so important to me. I never want people to fail with their keto goals because they don’t have delicious keto options. 

I am happy to share a wonderful recipe that is a keto-friendly dessert that would make a beautiful addition this holiday season.

It’s a low carb dessert that clocks in at only 4.1 net carbs compared to the original recipe that can have upwards of 40 net carbs!

You can even assemble everything the night before and then just bake it the next day. It’s a great way to plan your holiday treats.

I love how this keto cranberry cobbler is a perfect way to enjoy cranberries while in season. With that being said, you can certainly also use frozen cranberries and enjoy them any time of year.

Are Cranberries Keto-Friendly?

If you’re wondering if cranberries are keto-friendly, I’m happy to report that they are. You see these tart berries happen to have a low amount of carbs and high fiber content per serving size which can help keep your blood sugar steady throughout the day!

One cup only has 12 grams with 5g coming from their natural fibers. Isn’t that just fantastic news?
But eating raw isn’t really a thing because it’s quite sour on its own so they will always need a sweetener in order for us to enjoy them fully.

Thankfully using a sugar substitute works equally well at masking those tart flavors leaving behind nothing but deliciousness in return.

In addition to their low carb high fiber properties, cranberries have a reputation for being a superfood since they are packed with antioxidants and high in vitamins C, A, and K.

They also contain proanthocyanidins (PACs) a powerhouse antioxidant that may help prevent diseases.

How To Make Keto Cranberry Cobbler

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, meaning at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

To make this low carb cranberry cobbler, you’ll start by making the cranberry mixture. You’ll combine the cranberries, water, and sugar substitute, and orange extract, orange zest and cook on the stovetop in a small saucepan over medium heat until the cranberries pop and sauce thickens.

This should take around 10-15 minutes.

Alternatively, you can also just make a batch of our keto cranberry sauce as the filling. Or make double that recipe and save half for the cobbler! Yumms.

Then you’ll proceed to make the almond flour topping by combining the almond flour, baking powder, orange zest, and salt and setting it aside while you whisk in a separate bowl the sugar substitute, softened butter, and sour cream.

Once combined you’ll stir in the eggs and vanilla or orange extract and blend until fully incorporated. 

Next, you’ll add the wet batter to the dry ingredients and combine well. Once both the filling and topping are ready. It’s time to assemble the cobbler and bake. 

I used a well-buttered 7×11 inch baking dish and added the filling to the bottom of the dish. then I topped the cranberry filling with the cobbler topping by adding spoonfuls over the surface. Now it’s ready to bake in a preheated 350-degree oven.

Bake the cobbler for 25-35 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.

Sugar-Substitute Options

As far as which sweeteners you can use in this sugar-free cranberry cobbler, you have a few choices. My go-to sweetener is Lakanto Monk Fruit because the texture is what comes close to sugar and because there is barely any aftertaste. It is a monk fruit and erythritol blend and it’s become my favorite. 

Lakanto Monk Fruit gets its sweetness from antioxidants called mogrosides, instead of fructose or sucrose. It’s why it’s a great all-natural sugar substitute and has zero calories and zero glycemic index impact.

I’m also partial to  Swerve an erythritol blend. Unlike other natural sweeteners like stevia, it has no bitter aftertaste and measures just like sugar. 

It’s also a natural sweetener that browns and caramelizes just like sugar. Swerve is made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetable and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives, or flavors.

Swerve is the name brand of Erythritol it’s unlike other sugar alcohols has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.

If using stevia, I recommend a stevia-erythritol blend. The only one I like is the brand Pyure. When using Pyure you need to use just 1/2 the amount the recipe calls for. This is because it’s a much sweeter option. 

Lastly, if you cannot easily source a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success.

How To Serve Your Keto Cranberry Cobbler

You have several options when comes to serving your cobbler. I like to serve it warm but it can be served at room temperature or cold.

If serving warm it goes beautifully with a scoop of keto-friendly vanilla ice cream or dollop of whipped cream. However, it is amazing on its own and can be enjoyed without any topping. The choice is totally yours.

Needing A Nut-Free Option?

If you need a nut-free option you can substitute the almond flour for sunflower seed flour since it measures 1:1 for almond flour.
