Ingredients Needed

Besides their impressive appearance and incredibly delicious taste, these sugar-free chocolate chip cookie cups are made from a couple of simple ingredients you may already have in your pantry. Here is a list of everything you will need:

  • Almond Flour – this is one of our favorite low-carb flour substitutes that we use to create delicious keto sweet treats. Use a superfine, blanched almond flour to obtain the best texture.
  • Egg – acts as the binding agent in this cookie cup recipe, ensuring the cookie cups hold their shape. 
  • Butter – used to add a rich buttery flavor to the chocolate chip cookie cups.
  • Sweetener – for this recipe, I used powdered Erythritol, but you can use your favorite low-carb sweetener.
  • Xanthan Gum – this is the secret to achieving the perfect texture in your cookie cups and helping them hold their shape while baking.
  • Baking Powder –  gives a light and fluffy texture to the cookie dough.
  • Chocolate Chips – use unsweetened dark chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips to keep the sugar content low.
  • Coconut Oil – used to create a smooth and more velvety texture in the melted chocolate. It helps prevent the chocolate from becoming overly thick or clumpy, ensuring a glossy and even consistency.
  • Homemade Caramel Sauce – use our recipe for keto caramel sauce to enjoy the traditional flavor of a delicious caramel sauce but in a healthier way.

How To Make These Keto Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies Cups Recipe

Even if this may surprise you, this sugar-free chocolate chip cookie cup recipe is one of the easiest and most delicious dessert recipes I have ever tried. Here are the instructions that you have to follow:

Prepare The Oven and Muffin Tin

Preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C and thoroughly grease a 16-mini muffin tray with cooking oil spray.

Mix the Wet Ingredients

Combine the melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. Mix these ingredients for approximately 3 minutes until they are well combined.

Stir In the Dry Ingredients

Add over the wet ingredients the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt. Mix until the dough mixture is lump-free and smooth.

Fold In the Chocolate Chips

Gently fold in the unsweetened chocolate chips using a silicone spatula. 

Forming and Shaping the Dough

Shape your cookie dough into small balls and place them into the muffin tin. Press lightly in the center of each dough ball using a measuring spoon to create a well.

Bake The Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups

Bake for 10-15 minutes until the middles are cooked and the edges are golden brown.

While your cookie cups cool, melt unsweetened chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl until smooth and creamy. 

Once your cookie cups have cooled completely, it’s time for the finishing touches. Add about 1/2 tbsp of the melted chocolate into each cup, ensuring it coats the entire inside. Drizzle the cookie cups with homemade caramel sauce, letting them cool.

Tips For Making The Best Cookies Cups

  • Feel free to replace the butter with the same amount of coconut oil for a dairy-free option.
  • Give your cookie cups some time to cool down before filling them with chocolate and caramel sauce.
  • Keep a close eye on your cookie cups as they bake. Take them out when the edges get slightly crispy, but the center is still a bit soft, which is key. 
  • Ensure you sift your dry ingredients to create a perfectly smooth batter texture.
  • Roll your cookie dough into uniform balls before placing them in the muffin tin to ensure they bake evenly and at the same time.

Toppings And Filling Ideas

  • Homemade Caramel Drizzle: Elevate your cookie cups with a generous drizzle of homemade keto caramel sauce. The rich, buttery notes will complement the chocolatey flavors of your cups.
  • Sugar-Free Whipped Cream Swirl: Delight in a dollop of sugar-free whipped cream on top. Its airy texture adds a delightful contrast to the dense cookie cups.
  • Toasted Nuts for Crunch: Sprinkle chopped, toasted nuts like almonds or pecans for a satisfying crunch.
  • Fresh Berries Burst: Top your cookie cups with a handful of fresh berries, like raspberries or blueberries. T
  • Creamy Nut Butter Center: Create a surprise center by adding a spoonful of your favorite keto-friendly nut butter. 
  • Keto-Friendly Ice Cream Scoop: Serve warm cookie cups with keto-friendly ice cream. 
  • Keto-Friendly Chocolate Sauce: Drizzle some keto-friendly chocolate sauce for an extra layer of gooey chocolate. It enhances the overall chocolate experience in each bite.

  • Room Temperature: you can store any cookie cup leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  • Freezer: Wrap each cookie cup in plastic wrap, place it in the freezer-safe bag, and store it for up to 3 months.

Can I Freeze These Cookie Cups?

Yes, you can freeze your keto chocolate chip cookie cups. Wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in a freezer-safe bag. They can be stored for up to three months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.

Can I Make These Cookie Cups Ahead Of Time?

Absolutely! Prepare the cookie dough, store it in the fridge for up to two days, and bake whenever you’re ready for a fresh batch. Additionally, the baked cookie cups can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to four days.

How Do I Prevent The Cookie Cups From Sticking To The Muffin Tin?

Ensure the muffin tin is generously greased with cooking spray before adding the cookie dough. This prevents sticking and ensures a smooth release once baked.

Can I Skip The Chocolate Chips?

Sure! The recipe is versatile, and you can customize it by omitting the chocolate chips or adding your preferred mix-ins, such as nuts or dried fruits.
