How To Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream butter. Place butter into a large heat proof mixing bowl and microwave until melted, in 30 second intervals. When melted, stir in both sugar substitutes, stirring until well combined.
  3. Stir in egg and vanilla, beating well until combined.
  4. Add dry ingredients. Add almond flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Stir until dough forms and gently stir in chips.
  5. Shape cookies. Using a medium sized cookie scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet placing 1 inch apart from each other.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until edges just start to turn golden.
  7. Cool & enjoy. Remove from oven and use a plastic knife to form warm cookies into perfect rounds if needed. I do this to all of my cookies when they come out of the oven as needed. Let cool and serve room temperature.

Where Can I Buy Keto Baking Ingredients?

When I first started playing around with keto recipes, I was afraid I was going to have a hard time finding the right baking ingredients. My local Sprouts has everything I need and my local Fry’s Marketplace surprisingly has a decent amount of keto baking ingredients. Amazon has been a great resource too. You can always order online if you have trouble finding the products in your local stores.

What Keto Baking Ingredients Should I Have On Hand?

To bake keto recipes, I’ve found that I like to have super fine almond flour and coconut flour in my pantry, coconut oil, almond butter and other nut butters, sugar substitutes such as Lakanta Monkfruit Sweetener with Erythritol in both classic and golden. I also have the powdered sugar version from Lakanta as well. Lily’s has sugar-free chocolate chips that worked perfect in my cookies. With these main keto ingredients you can make keto cookies, keto cakes, muffins, pancakes and even keto bread.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips

For keto cookies, make sure you are using sugar free chocolate chips. I was pretty skeptical of these since I’m so used to cooking with traditional chocolate chips. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Lily’s is a good option for sure. Again, I found these at my local Sprouts and also my local Fry’s Marketplace which is part of Kroger.

Are Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Good?

As someone who is very new to the keto diet and used to baking “my way” with more traditional ingredients, I can happily tell you these low carb/sugar cookies are great! Now, don’t expect the same texture as cookies made with all-purpose flour, it’s different, but still delicious.

Keto Cookie Dough

As you can see, keto cookie dough looks different than traditional cookie dough made with all-purpose flour. You see more of the almond flour pieces. I took a little taste and it’s still good in a healthy cookie dough way!

How Long Do You Bake Keto Cookies?

I baked my recipe at 350 degrees F. Started with 12 minutes then let them bake another minute. 12-14 minutes should be about perfect. The edges will start to turn golden brown very slightly.

Pro Tips Making Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Right when I remove the cookies from the oven I use a plastic knife to shape the cookies into perfect rounds if needed. Some of the cookies bake uneven, but re-shape nicely while still hot.
  • Add 5-8 dark chocolate sugar-free chocolate chips to tops of hot/warm cookies for an even better looking cookie. The chips slightly melt and add that little special touch. Totally optional, but I do this often to my cookies.

    My cookies didn’t turn out as beautiful as yours but it may be the cookie scoop I used and also I used a darker coloured almond flour and the edges burnt a little more than I would have liked… BUT the cookies tasted amazing! Totally satisfied and they held their shape nicely once cooled. Thanks!
