Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

It wasn't fair for everyone else to have their cookies and eat them too, I needed to create a recipe for low carb cookies that would fit my lifestyle. Someone I know will sit next to me and devour a whole package of Chips Ahoy, it is only fair that I get to snack too. My keto almond flour chocolate chip cookies blow his away. I get all the crunch with none of the preservatives, sugar or carbs.

Getting that Crunch from the Almond Flour 

My go to gluten free keto approved flour for cookies is almond, it just seems to be the closest I can get to all purpose flour. I know some prefer coconut flour, I just don't for cookies. It takes longer to bake, soaks up all kinds of liquid and just doesn't seem to crisp up. Almond flour is a more dry, finer ground and using the blanched type can turn out a cookie closest to a traditional recipe. 

Skip the Two Bowl Method for this Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie

My baking process is always the same whether it's traditional, gluten free or keto. I skip the two bowl method for most cookies. I personally don't use two bowls when I bake. Let's think about this- if I was using a stand mixer it would all go in one bowl, right? You add the butter + sweetener and then cream it together, continuing with the eggs, and so on. So why use two bowls if you don't have a stand mixer? Just use on bowl. Less dishes, same results. 

Keto Almond Flour Cookie Base

The base of this almond flour cookie recipe is easy and can be used for many other keto approved types besides chocolate chip. We start with butter, sweetener, vanilla and almond flour. That in itself is an easy almond flour butter cookie that's both gluten free and keto approved. Other cookies to make with this low carb base: 

  • Lemon zest and blueberries
  • Choc Zero white chocolate
  • Peanut butter

  1. I did research on the Lakanto sweetner, the 25.99 bag is only 3 1/2 cups of sugar, that's really pricey. Before I spend that kind of money on it, (I currently use Eyrithtol and Xylitol, is there that much of a difference?

    • Hi Laurie,

      In my opinion the Lakanto is so much sweeter so I use a lot less. The thing I like the most is the lack of bitter and cooling. I have never been a fan of Xylitol. I don't mind Erythritol, but by itself it has too much of a cooling for me. It burns my throat. So I usually end up adding stevia to it, which gets more expensive. With the monkfruit I don't have to.

      Hope that helps!
