Soft and chewy keto chocolate chip cookies! Just like mom used to make but only 2 net carbs each and gluten free! An easy recipe with basic ingredients!

Everyone has one food (okay, maybe 10 foods) that you just will never be able to say no to. For me, one of those foods are fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies.

I love the dough just as much as I love the cookies. Ashamedly, I used to buy a log of Pillsbury cookie dough just to eat it with a spoon!

I love pulling them out of the oven and immediately placing one in a bowl with a scoop of vanilla ice cream knowing that the ice cream is going to melt.

It takes me straight back to my childhood. And seriously, a house that smells like fresh cookies? C’monnnnnn.

 

We took the kids to Disney last week (you can read about that here) and on our way we made a pitstop at my mom’s house. She had just made my kids a batch of warm, gooey, homemade chocolate chip cookies.

The house smelled mouthwatering. My kids ate way more than they should’ve but I stood strong. I didn’t indulge a single dadgum cookie. I was so proud of myself. 

But then…there’s always a but…we stopped back by my mom’s after our Disney trip was over.

Exhausted.

Disney hangover. (yes, that’s a real thing and you know that if you’ve ever taken children to Disney)

And facing another 7 hours in the car back to Kentucky. I caved like a badly baked cheesecake.

I’m pretty sure I ate like 5 or 6 big pieces of cookie dough and regretted it almost immediately. But dang, it sure tasted good going down.

Since then, I haven’t been able to get chocolate chip cookies off my brain since. Well, keto chocolate chip cookies anyway. 

As long as I’ve been eating a low carb diet, I have never made low carb or keto cookies. Weird, right?

One activity I’ve really really missed, however, is making cookies with my kids. That has been a great way for us to bond and an easy way to for them to feel included in my world and learn something about cooking. 

 

Sugar free chocolate chip cookies. These gluten free and keto friendly cookies will become your family's new favorite cookie!

 

My daughter and I recently made a trip up to the nearest Whole Foods, which is a good half hour away, so I grabbed a few bags of Lily’s chocolate chips (sweetened with Stevia, 2 net carbs per serving) to stick in the pantry.

Yes, I could order them on Amazon but I don’t normally. They’re pricey little sugar free chocolate chips but so worth it occasionally. Actually, my favorite keto chocolate company ChocZero is launching sugar free chocolate chips soon and I’m pumped to try them in this recipe!

Knowing those chocolate chips were waiting to be baked, I decided to try my hand at a keto chocolate chip cookie. Essentially, I just swapped white flour for almond flour and kept the remaining ingredients the same as you’d see in any other (keto or not) chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Trust me when I tell you that despite the almond flour base, these keto cookies are not grainy at all! In fact, they’re so soft and chewy that you wouldn’t even know you’re eating a gluten free cookie!

I baked my keto chocolate chip cookies for 10 minutes so they’d stay a little gooey-er but you could bake them for 12-13 minutes for a more crispy cookie.

Also, you can use less chocolate chips than the recipe calls for. It will save carbs but I just don’t think there is a thing as too much chocolate in a chocolate chip cookie! 

I’m actually going to tweak this recipe just a smidge to make it into a cookie cake for my son’s upcoming birthday! Stay tuned for a how-to on that! 

Bottom line…if you want an keto chocolate chip cookie that tastes just like the ones mom used to make, then file this recipe into your recipe book! (Are those still a thing?)

  • Hands Down best Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe I have ever tried. I’m baking challenged but I found this extremely easy to follow and my cookies came out perfect.

      • I just made these today as I started eating low carb and needed a sweet treat. They came out sooooo delish!! I used regular erythritol since I didn’t have the brown version and coconut oil since I run out of butter. I love coconut so I don’t mind the coconut taste. Also used crushed baking chocolate bar so the chocolate is melted all around the cookie. Sooooo yummy!

      • These are, without a doubt, the best Keto cookies I’ve ever found! (I’m nibbling on one now) I’m Super sensitive to the almond flour flavor but I can’t even taste it in these. These have become my favorite cookie ever!!! My husband and I are about to turn 70 and have been on Keto for a couple of months, ( -20 + lbs for each) so I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your efforts. Don’t let anyone tell you they’re too old to lose weight P.S. I didn’t see any rating stars for this recipe so I give it 10 stars!!!

  • Do you know if you would be able to use stevia as a substitute for the sukrin? And if so do you what the coversion would be?! Thank you very much!

  • After several failed attempts at keto chocolate chip cookies this Is by far the best one:) I did use Swerve brown sugar for my cookies and loved them,but will definitely try the sweetner you used next time to see how they compare. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe.

  • Awesome recipe! I made a little tweaked for my own personal taste. I did 4 oz salted and 4 oz unsalted butter and left out the 1/8 tsp. I thought it was the perfect amount of saltiness for my taste. Also, I used the Truvia brown sugar blend and ended up using about 2/4 cup (I know, it’s and odd amount) to get it to my own personal taste. I’ve made this recipe 3 different times already. Once I followed yours exactly and then tweaked it until I got it until the way I preferred it. But you are an awesome cook! And I look forward to seeing what else comes out of your kitchen

    • I am glad you liked them even with all of the changes. For others who might read this though, the Truvia Brown Sugar blend has real sugar in it (hence the blend) and thus is not an appropriate sweetener for a low carb/sugar free/keto recipe.

    • This has become our go-to keto cookie recipe. My hubby adds an extra egg, and we omit the salt when we use salted butter. Deeeelicious!

  • Hello, I found your recipe from following rockenketorn on instagram. I haven’t tried these yet, but been looking for a “tollhouse” type chocolate chip cookie recipe, they were my favorite. I don’t know where you get the Simeon brown sugar, but I have lakanko golden & just bought swerve Brown. Which would be closest to Sukrin? & where can I find that. I don’t have any whole food stores near, so usually have to order everything on line. Another question, where can I get stevia glycerite & what is difference between that & sweet drops stevia, which is what I have. Thanks for your help. Look forward to making these cookies. Merry Christmas! Victoria

    • Hi, I have not used either of those brown sugar alternatives so I cannot say for certain. Sukrin products can be purchased online only in the US and I have linked it several times throughout the post. I do not use stevia glycerite or sweet drops so I cannot answer that. I use all Sukrin products in my recipes.

    • Victoria – I used the lakanto golden and it worked perfect! hands down the best cookie recipe I have tried since starting keto Dec 2017. I even ran out of the “brown sugar” and substituted a little swerve granular….still perfect still delicious. and definitely going to remake this at least a dozen more times!! 🙂

  • These are the best cookies ever!!! I decided to make cookies for my first keto christmas. These were super easy to make so I made them for an event at work. My co-workers loved them AND it fooled all the kids that ate them at the event. I then made 2 dozen for my local police department. They were gone before they ate all of their sugar-laden treats. I did change the recipe slightly by substituting the egg for flaxseed “egg” and I used white erythritol. They still came out great. (I did have to put them in the freezer to cool down as soon as they came out of the oven because they were too fragile to put them directly on the wire rack.) Also, I was able to get 36 cookies out of the batter, and they were a good size. Thank you for this recipe!!!

  • These were amazing! I didn’t have any Lilly chips, but Indis have a bar that I chopped up. These cookies were amazing! Thank You!

  • These are awesome and completely satisfying. I have been wanting a cookie so bad and these are so yummy,. Even better that my kids love it and it doesn’t have sugar!

  • I finally made these and seriously have told EVERYONE I know that they are AMAZING!!!! I am rationing them . . . one each day. . . . well, maybe 2. 🙂 Keep the fabulous recipes coming!

  • I was wondering if you ever tried this recipe with coconut flour I’m definitely going to try it the way you have posted but I was just curious thank you in advance

  • So I made your cookies and they were very good however what type of almond flour did u use ? I’m trying to get rid of the minor grainy taste .. should I sift the flour? Or put in a food processor? Any suggestions thank you ! Love your website!!! Anna

  • Hello,
    Love the taste of your cookies but mine always tend to spread out too thin. Any suggestions on how to avoid this?

    Thanks in advance!

  • I made your cookies two days ago. My family hates everything keto and wishes I would “cook regular” again lol. However, those cookies were devoured in a few hours! I got up the next morning and they were GONE!!! Thank you so much! I’ll definitely be trying more of your recipes 🙂
