I’ve always admired the people who can take two bites of a dessert and then walk away. The moderators of this world.

Even if you don’t feel the desire for a jumbo cookie, I can compute…feel free to size them appropriately. 

You’ll love the taste and texture regardless of the size. 

Let’s talk about the ingredients for these almond flour chocolate chip cookies.

Giant Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies - jumbo sized gooey chocolate chip cookies that are grain-free, sugar-free and have the perfect outer crisp.

Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Unsalted Butter: The ingredient that makes a cookie utterly irresistible 😉 Butter serves as the fat, flavor, and goo portion of the recipe. It can easily be replaced with softened coconut oil for those who are dairy-free. I often find cookies made with coconut oil are equally delicious as those made with butter!

Sugar-Free Brown Sugar: The sweetener portion of the recipe. Sugar-free brown sugar adds richness to the cookies and works with the butter to create that scintillating goo. My favorite brands of sugar-free brown sugar are Lakanto monk fruit sweetener and  Swerve.

If you don’t have a brown sugar substitute on hand, no sweat! You can easily replace it with any granulated sugar-free sugar substitutes. On the flip side, if you don’t follow a low-carb diet, feel free to swap out the sugar-free sweetener for regular brown sugar, cane sugar, or coconut sugar.

Egg: One egg helps fluff up the cookies and keep them held together. I try to bring my egg to room temperature before adding it to the cookie dough so that it plays nice with the softened butter and doesn’t cause any clumping.

Vanilla Extract: Providing warmth and richness, a touch of vanilla extract helps add an aromatic yumminess to any cookie. How to describe it in words? Lovely…optional but also mandatory.

Fine Almond Flour: The flour portion of the recipe, almond flour is our low-carb grain-free flour. When mixed with all of the other ingredients, almond flour produces a soft and chewy texture with the perfect outer crisp. You’d never guess these cookies are gluten-free, much less grain-free! While you can use coconut flour to make low carb cookies, I prefer the texture of almond meal.

Baking Soda & Sea Salt: Leavening and flavor enhancing! Baking soda helps hold the cookies together in one cohesive unit and also generates that crisp you get around the edges. Don’t skip it or you’ll end up with puddles of delicious goo! Also, sea salt makes everything taste better…like going from black and white TV to technicolor 😉

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips: The chocolatey goo! Use your favorite sugar-free chocolate chips (I use lily’s chocolate chips) OR chop up a sugar-free chocolate bar sweetened with sugar alcohols. If you don’t follow a low-carb diet, use any form of chocolate chip or chunk you’d like.

How to Make Giant Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Add the butter and sugar to a stand mixer and beat until combined and fluffy (note: you can also use a mixing bowl and an electric hand mixer. If you go this route, us a large bowl for the dough and a separate bowl for mixing the dry ingredients together.).

Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl and beat in the egg and vanilla extract. 

Scrape the sides of the bowl again and add the remaining dry ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Beat on high speed until everything is incorporated and a sticky dough forms. Beat in the chocolate chips.

Use the rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl again to ensure all of the ingredients are mixed together very well. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour before baking.

When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Measure out ⅓ cup of the dough and place it on the baking sheet. You can also use a cookie scoop if you own one. Repeat for remaining cookie dough (there should be 7 balls of dough total). Note that the dough will spread during the baking process so be sure to leave ample room between balls of dough.

Measure 1/3 cup of cookie dough

Bake for 11 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies reach your preferred level of done-ness. Chewy cookies will need 10 to 11 minutes on the dot and crispier cookies will require 13 to 15.

Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack and digging in! If you go after them right away, they will fall apart easily, so for best results, wait for at least 15 minutes before diving in.

I know, I know…life is hard when there are gluten-free chocolate chip cookies with soft centers in the room.

How to Store Cookies:

Store the cookies in a sealed airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days. After that, transfer them to the refrigerator or the freezer. When freezing cookies, wrap them in plastic wrap then freeze them in a zip lock bag to ensure they stay nice and fresh.

That’ll do it, folks! Your ticket to the ultimate chewy, gooey, perfectly crispy, large and in charge chewy chocolate chip cookies, always got your back cookies. 

These low carb chocolate chip cookies contain 9 net carbs per giant cookie, which may be too much for some folks on a keto diet or a low carb diet. If that is the case for you, simply halve the amount of dough you use per cookie.

Hello Is it ok if i use vanilla powder and baking powder instead of Vanilla extract and baking soda. If i understand correctly, baking soda must be used with something sour or it won't make the dough rise during backing ?

Kind regards Nassera

Hi there! You can definitely use vanilla powder and baking powder instead if you'd like! You'll need more baking powder, so try the recipe using 1 teaspoon of baking powder. As a side note regarding the baking soda, the recipe works great as written, but you can also add 1 to 2 tsp of lemon juice or vinegar to react with it if you'd like! xo

Hello. The dough was cold after refrigeration as called for in the recipe but it didn’t spread at all in the oven. Do you know why? Your photo looks they spread quite a bit. Thanks

Hi Rochelle,

I have two guesses - it could be your dough was colder than mine going into the oven or the almond flour you used may be more absorbent, so the fat ratio in my dough may have been higher if that makes sense. I find grain-free cookie doughs often remain the same shape as they go into the oven, so sometimes I even shape the dough into a cookie shape. I didn't do that in this case, but it's always an option to ensure you get the shape you want. Hope that helps! :D xoxox

The recipe calls for brown sugar but your link is for golden sugar. What's the difference?

Julia

Hi Heather! There isn't a difference. Lakanto just calls their sugar-free brown sugar "golden," but it has the same consistency as any other brown sugar or sugar-free brown sugar ;) You can also use regular granulated sugar-free sweetener if that's what you have on hand! xoxo
