Sometimes you just want a cookie but what to do if you are following a keto diet? Now you can make these delicious soft and chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies to satisfy that sweet tooth. It really does not get any better than this easy keto dessert. I also make Keto Edible Cookie Dough and the entire family loves it.

What are Keto Cookies?

Keto Cookies are made with almond flour or coconut flour. They are low in carbs but taste amazing. We love making cookies at our house but I am trying to do low carb, so this cookie curves my sweet tooth.

We also use a keto friendly sugar to fit within our low carb diet. If you are looking for a low carb dessert, this is the one I always make.


  • Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips. You can use your favorite sugar free brand but try to buy a good quality chocolate.
  • Keto Friendly Powdered Sugar Substitute. These are getting easier to find now that Keto is so popular.
  • Baking Soda. Try the Best Baking Soda Substitutes.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract. I recommend using pure extract.

Find the entire ingredients at the bottom of the page.

Substitutions and Additions

  • Flour Variations – If you can’t use almond flour, try coconut flour or sunflower seed flour. You would use the same amount as if you were using almond flour.
  • Chocolate Chips – If you are unable to find Lily’s low carb Chocolate Chips, try chopping up a 85% chocolate bar. It takes a little extra time, but it is still a better alternative than regular chocolate chips.
  • Sweetener Substitutions –  I used Monk Fruit Sweetener sweetener for this recipe but any brand will work. You can also use Swerve Erythritol or if you’re not following a low sugar diet, you can use real sugar as well. I used the granulated sweetener but powdered erythritol would work too.
  • Chopped Nuts – Walnuts or Pecans are a good option.
  • Sugar Free Candies – Add in some sugar free M&M’s or peanut butter cups
  • Coconut – Unsweetened Coconut Flakes is a great option.
  • Pistachios – I was amazed how good these were added in. Pistachios have a lot of health benefits.

How to make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Step 1. Preheat Oven – First preheat your oven to 325 F.

Step 2. Next, stir the dry ingredients and then fold the wet ingredients to form a dough.

Step 3. Use a cookie scoop to shape dough into cookies. Place on a cookie tray and bake.

Step 4. Let the cookies cool before handling so they don’t fall apart. They are very delicate at first but firm up once cool.

Step 5. Serve and enjoy the keto friendly cookies.

Expert Tips

  • Use Cookie Scoop – If you are still scooping cookies with two spoons, you really need to get yourself some stainless steel scoops. I have had mine for several years and I use them for all types of baking.
  • Cooking Rack – It is also a good idea to use a cooling rack. Place the cookies on racks to cool completely. We also line baking sheets with parchment paper. This makes cleaning large baking sheets easier as well.
  • Baking Mats – Another tip is to use baking mats. These keep your cookies from burning on the bottom and they help them cook evenly. Plus, it saves you money by not having to use parchment paper all the time.
  • One Bowl Mixing – No need to have one bowl for dry ingredients and one for wet. This recipe is so easy that all the ingredients go into one bowl.
  • Check for Doneness – I always check my cookies around the 11 minute mark to check for doneness. Sometimes the bottom gets brown first. But letting them rest on the cookie sheet after removing from oven will help finish the cooking process.


What Chocolate Chips are Keto Approved?

Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are the kind we get. They are keto friendly, are low carb, gluten free and made up of premium dark chocolate that is 55% cocoa. They are sweetened with zero calorie Stevia.

Making these the best choice when making Keto Approved Chocolate Chip Cookies. We like these Lily’s Chocolate Chip so much, that I use them when I make regular chocolate chip cookies.

Can I freeze Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

These Keto cookies freeze great. Place them on a baking sheet separately and place in the freezer. After about 2 hours, remove them from the freezer and place them in a freezer safe container.

This way you can grab just one or two cookies whenever you need something sweet. They are even great right out of the freezer.

How many carbs in Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

These Keto Cookies With Almond Flour are low carb and delicious. You can also try making keto chocolate chip cookies monk fruit if you prefer. Based on the size of cooking you make, these cookies come out to about 2 net carbs per cookie.


Place cookies in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator. They will stay good in the fridge for about a week.
