Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Print recipe

Desserts and sweets are something I always look forward to enjoying! A common misconception many people have about living a keto lifestyle is that they have to give up sweets and treats. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! The key to eating desserts is to do so in moderation. This recipe for Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies makes 12 large cookies. Olivia and I have been baking a lot lately, and these cookies are so fun and easy to make with your kids!

You’ll notice that this recipe calls for Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener Golden instead of Swerve, which we use in many recipes. Sometimes, in certain cases, Swerve or erythritol can have a “cooling effect”. This means when it dissolves in a liquid, it can have a cool minty aftertaste.Β  That is why I found that monkfruit sweetener worked better for these cookies. It’s wonderful for baking because it tastes just like sugar, but contains zero net carbs and zero calories.Β  It’s perfect for these chocolate chip cookies and other sweet, sugar-free treats.

These cookies will be ready in just over 20 minutes and you’ll only need 7 ingredients! Start by preheating oven to 325 degrees and prepare a cookie sheet with a silicone baking matΒ or parchment paper.

Whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside.

Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together the butter and Lakanto Golden on high speed until combined.

Now beat in the vanilla and egg, until light and creamy. Next, turn the speed down and slowly add in the almond flour mixture until just blended. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Scoop out 12 mounds of dough, and space them evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating the pan in the oven half-way through. This will help ensure the cookies cook evenly. You’ll know they’re done when they are browned on the edges. They may look a little soft in the middle, but they will set as they cool. They’re set crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Although it may be tempting to eat them warm right out of the oven, the texture is actually better as they cool. Enjoy with a nice glass of almond milk.

    Hi! Can the egg be replaced with anything? I’m allergic.

      Hi there! unfortunately this recipe does need eggs to work. I will hopefully be launching some more egg-free recipes in the future.

      For sure, you may have to adjust the amounts a little.

    Very delicious and I love the crispy outside and softer inside. For being a Keto cookie they’re pretty darn good! I think the Monkfruit sweetner makes the difference.
