I’ve been keto for a while and actually never tried to make cookies in a low carb way. I tried this recipe without many expectations, and they are fantastic. To make these keto cookies low carb I used almond flour, a sugar substitute that is low carb, high-quality butter, sugar-free chocolate chips, and tons of passion.

I love that one cookie is big enough to make you feel satisfied, but I always eat 2 of them. These cookies are just so good.

Always use high-quality ingredients because they taste better and have more benefits. For example, for these sugar-free cookies, I used grass-fed butter because it contains 6 times more CLA than regular butter. CLA is a fatty acid found in meat and dairy products that help your body burn fat.

Are Chocolate Chip Cookies Keto?

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies are not keto friendly can’t be fitted in a low carb diet since they are loaded with sugar and carbs. A homemade chocolate cookie made using the classic recipe has about 26g carbs. No worries, my keto chocolate cookies have only 2 grams net carbs per serving!

Ingredients for the Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is probably my 10th batch of keto cookies with chocolate chips and I tried a few variations of ingredients and this one (that I am sharing with you) turns perfect every time. I have a few friends that tried it and they are impressed too. It all starts with choosing the ingredients.

  • Almond Flour – Choose a superfine flour. The ones that have little chunks of almond won’t work as well as fine almond flour.
  • Grass-Fed Butter – It’s important to melt your butter but when mixing it with the other ingredients it shouldn’t be hot. Heat a saucepan and add the butter. When it starts to melt take it off the heat because it will continue to melt. This step is very important because using hot butter will make your dough too soft and you won’t be able to form the cookies into small balls that melt in the oven.
  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – Using them will make the recipe low in carbs and sugar.
  • Xanthan Gum – This is a very important ingredient that’s often used in keto recipes as a substitute for gluten. It helps bind all the ingredients better. You only need a very small amount. The cookies are good without xanthan gum too but I prefer the version with xanthan gum.
  • Sweetener – We will use a keto approved sweetener that doesn’t raise the blood sugar and keeps us in ketosis.
  • Eggs – To bind all the ingredients together.

How to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F / 180 C and like a cookie sheet with parchament paper.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave or a hot pot. If your butter is too hot, let it cool down.
  3. Using a blender or a hand mixer combine the butter with the sweetener. Blend for about 10-15 seconds until the sugar substitute dissolves.
  4. In a bowl combine the dry ingredients: almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder.
  5. Combine the dry ingredients with the butter mixture. Use a spatula to incorporate the chocolate chips.
  6. Using your hands form 10-12 balls and place them on a tray lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until they are beautiful and golden.
  8. Let the keto chocolate chip cookies cookies cool down and serve.

Tips & Substitutions For Making The Best Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Don’t try to substitute the almond flour with coconut flour, the result won’t be the same. Almond flour cookies have the best
  • Don’t try to substitute the almond flour with coconut flour, the result won’t be the same. Almond flour cookies have the best texture, and even a mixture of both flours doesn’t deliver the right texture.
  • If you can’t find sugar-free chocolate chips, replace them with 85% dark chocolate bar chopped in chunks. Use the same amount of chocolate chunks.
  • Using a cooking scoop is the easiest way to make perfectly equal cookies each time. I use the smallest 1.5in/ 4cm cookie scooper in my cookie scoop set from Amazon.
  • Use a granulated form of keto sweetener; liquid stevia won’t work.

Storing Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Room temperature – Store in an airtight container in a cool place at room temperature for up to one week.
  • Freezer – These keto cookies can be stored in the freezer and still have the best texture after defrosting. I allow the cookies to cool completely, place them on a cookie tray and freeze. Once frozen, I transfer them to freezer-friendly plastic bags.

Carbs In Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made 10 cookies out of the almond flour chocolate chip dough, so each one comes to only 2g net carbs. If you’re using an app to calculate the macros make sure you subtract both the fiber and sugar alcohol from the total carb content to get the right net carbs.
