Keto desserts CAN taste just as good as classic ones. I’ve tried it with all kinds of desserts, and I love how AMAZING they taste. We’ve done cheesecake, ice cream, and chocolate cake, and recently, we’ve added chocolate chip cookies into the mix.  

Why you’ll love this recipe

  • 6 Ingredients. Simple and easy to find keto ingredients that you probably have in your pantry now!
  • Quick and easy. The entire recipe takes less than 12 minutes to make. 
  • Perfect texture. Crisp edges, soft and chewy in the middle, and loaded with chocolate chips. 
  • 2 grams carbs. These make the ultimate low carb dessert.

What I love about these cookies is just how perfect they turn out every single time. If you are worried that keto cookies won’t taste as good as traditional ones, don’t fret- these are just like any good choc chip cookie out there. 

Ingredients to make choc chip cookies

  • Cashew butter- Gives the cookies a buttery texture, without the need for any butter or oil! You can substitute this with tahini. 
  • Granulated sweetener of choice- I used allulose, but erythritol or monk fruit sweetener should also work. 
  • Baking Soda- Helps the cookies from overspreading, while helping them hold their shape. 
  • Eggs- Room temperature eggs. 
  • Vanilla Extract- A must for any good cookie recipe! 
  • Keto chocolate chips- The star ingredient- I used homemade sugar free chocolate chips. You can also chop up a keto chocolate bar if you’d like pools of chocolate throughout. 

How to make low carb chocolate chip cookies

Make the cookie dough: Start by whisking together the cashew butter, sweetener, baking soda, eggs, and vanilla extract, until just combined. Fold through the chocolate chips.

Chill the dough: Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Shape and bake: Now, form 12 balls of cookie dough and place them on a lined baking sheet, and bake or 10-12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool completely.

Tips to make the best keto chocolate chip cookies

  • Avoid over mixing the dough, as it can affect how thick they remain, and soft and chewy in the middle.
  • If you prefer thicker cookies, refrigerate the dough for at least 45 minutes. 
  • Do not over-bake the cookies as they continue to cook as they are cooling down. 
  • If you enjoy your cookies loaded with chocolate chips and evenly dispersed, mix half the chocolate chips in the batter and reserve the other half for the top of them. Also, consider removing the cookies out of the oven around the 8-minute mark and adding a few more on top.

Storing and freezing instructions

  • To store: Leftover cookies will keep at room temperature in a sealed container, for up to 2 weeks. If you’d like them to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator. 
  • To freeze: Place leftover cookies in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.

    These were amazing! I used tahini (I don’t care for the aftertaste) but they were still really good. I loaded them with chocolate chips and pecans😋 !! Next time I’ll use the cashew butter and a bit more salt. I also added a couple drops of caramel extract. Mann I was impressed. Thank you 😊

    I made these for Christmas as a treat and they are SO good and so easy to make. This will now be my go-to cookie. I used the chia because my son is also vegan. How nice to have a cookie that we can both eat. I also used tahini. Thanks!

  3. LOVE these cookies!! 💕 I have a hard time finding anything that is low/no sugar (diabetic) AND gluten free (celiac). It’s a real treat! I had a hard time staying away from them!🤯☺️

    So tasty! We used tahini as it’s what we had in the house but using nut butter and no flour as a base for the cookie is so clever and results in something really delicious. I look forward to trying more of your recipes, thanks for sharing this one.

    LOVE a lot of your recipes BUT I wish they could be pinned to my Pinterest account. To print means it gets lost in paper shuffle. You are on Pinterest so why not have Pin tab?

    Oh my gosh! All I had in the house was hemp butter and these came out beautifully. Taste like a PB Chocolate Chip cookie. Crispy texture, not too sweet. Awesome recipe, thanks!
