Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keto chocolate chip cookies replace traditional ingredients that are high in carbs, like wheat flour and sugar, with keto-friendly alternatives that maintain the texture and flavor of regular cookies. The result? A cookie that fits perfectly into your keto lifestyle, allowing you to enjoy a sweet treat without guilt.

Key Ingredients for Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

To keep these cookies low-carb and keto, we use ingredients like almond flour and coconut flour instead of traditional flour. The sweetness comes from erythritol, monk fruit, or allulose sweeteners, which offer sugar-like sweetness without the carbs. I prefer WholesomeYum sweeteners.

As for the chocolate chips, opt for sugar-free versions like those from brands such as Lily’s, which use stevia or erythritol as sweeteners.

Baking the Perfect Keto Chocolate Chips Cookies

Achieving the chewy, delightful texture in keto cookies comes down to the right mix of ingredients and baking techniques. Here’s what you need to know to get the best results:

  • Mixing the Ingredients: Start by creaming together the butter and coconut oil, then add in the sweetener. This process is crucial as it helps incorporate air into the batter, giving the cookies their light, airy texture.
  • Choosing the Right Flour: Almond flour and coconut flour are staples in keto baking. Almond flour gives a soft, chewy texture, while coconut flour helps to absorb moisture and keep the cookies from becoming too oily.
  • Avoid Over-Mixing: Once you add the flour, mix just until you see no more streaks. Over-mixing can lead to dense cookies.
  • Baking Time: Keto cookies often don’t brown as much as their flour-based counterparts, so it’s important to time them rather than going by color. They typically take about 10-12 minutes in a 350°F (177°C) oven.

Tips for Storing Keto Cookies

To keep your keto chocolate chip cookies fresh and chewy, store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They will last for up to a week. For longer storage, you can freeze the dough or the baked cookies for up to three months.
