Giant Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies - jumbo cookies made sugar-free, grain-free, ultra gooey! You can't tell they aren't regular cookies!

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

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

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

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 to the wet 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 with a golden brown edge.

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’ve had poor luck with keto / low carb desserts, but not with this one! Very happy with how they came out, little almond aftertaste that I often find. I will definitely be saving this to make again. I’ll also try with a different type of chips like white chocolate, dark or butterscotch. can’t wait to make again, thank so much much for the recipe.

These are the best cookies I’ve ever had! I used good quality chocolate chips and not sugar free cause I’ll give up a lot of things but not chocolate. Seriously, the best recipe! Thank you! I’ve made these twice so far. The second time I added roasted pecans and it was good but the original recipe doesn’t need any changes!

Ooh, roasted pecans sound like an incredible addition! Thanks so much for sharing, Heather! What an incredible review! xoxox

New favorite keto cooke recipe! I made these for my husband while he was at work. When he came home and tried one he did not believe me that they were keto.

Excellent news, Aynsley! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm happy you and your husband enjoy the cookies :)

Is the nutritional information correct per serving? 367 cal per cookie?

Julia

Wednesday 28th of February 2024

Hi Lora! That is correct! :) The nutrition facts are based off of making 7 huge cookies out of the cookie dough. If you'd like to make smaller cookies, you definitely can. Some folks have reported back that they have made anywhere between 12 and 20 smaller cookies out of the dough, so I say go with what works for you. Hope you enjoy!

I’ve been asked to make a keto/paleo chocolate chip cookie cake for a birthday (I’ve made traditional ones in the past). Do you think I could double this recipe and make it in a 9x13” pan? Thank you 💗

Julia

Thursday 8th of February 2024

Hi Joanne! This is a great question, and I love the idea of turning it into a birthday cake! I haven't tried this myself so I'm not sure if you would need to double or triple the recipe. If it were me, i would triple the recipe to play it safe and if there is extra dough, separate it into cookie dough sized portions and freeze it so that you can bake cookies at a later date. Let me know if you have any other questions! xo
