Soft and chewy keto chocolate chip cookies that are gluten free, grain free, sugar free, and only 2 net carbs per cookie!

 

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. 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. I haven’t been able to get chocolate chip cookies off my brain since.

One activity I’ve really really missed is making cookies with the kids. It was a great bonding time and an easy way to for them to feel included in my world and learn something about cooking. 

 

 

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. They’re pricey but so worth it occasionally. 

Knowing those chocolate chips were waiting to be baked, I decided to try my hand at a keto chocolate chip cookie. This recipe is as simple as they come. Essentially, I just swapped white flour for almond flour. I was hesitant that the texture would be grainy but I was pleasantly surprised to find they were not!

 

 

I baked mine for 10 minutes so they’d stay a little gooey-er but you could bake them for 12-13 minutes for a more substantial cookie, like if you wanted to make an ice cream sandwich! 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 authentic chocolate chip cookie that is grain free, gluten free, sugar free, and low carb then file this recipe into your recipe book! (Are those still a thing?)

 

 

And hey, will you do me a favor? If you love these cookies as much as I did, will you hit the little “pin” button and leave a comment below for all of the other readers who wonder if these really taste as good as they look? I’d be so grateful! XOXO

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
