I make them when we have dinner with our friends or family who follow a sugar-free or keto diet. They’re always the center of attention.

Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies - double chocolate chip cookies made keto, grain-free, and sugar-free

Here’s how we make them!

Ingredients for Keto Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Butter: Unsalted butter gives these double chocolate cookies that mega important ultra buttery butter flavor. The fat content of butter is crucial in making the chemistry of cookies work out. You can also use ghee to make these lactose-free but still have that butter taste. If you’re dairy-free, you can replace the butter with softened (not melted) coconut oil.

Sugar-Free Sweetener: Sugar-free granulated sweetener makes these cookies sugar-free, low-carb and keto-friendly. I use Truvia or Swerve, but you can also go with Monk Fruit Sweetener or your favorite brand of sweetener.

Egg: One egg helps hold these cookies together, gives them a chewiness and a bit of fluff. ProTip: if you have the forethought, bring the egg out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before you begin the recipe to bring it to room temperature.

Almond Flour: The grain-free flour used in this keto cookie recipe is almond flour. I use Bob’s Red Mill’s Super Fine Almond Flour, so bare that in mind when you make this recipe, as different brands of almond flour have different absorbencies. If the cookie dough turns out crumbly or dry, you’ll need to add another 1 to 3 tablespoons of butter, depending on the absorbency of the almond flour.

Cocoa Powder: Giving these double chocolate chip cookies extra richness and chocolate flair, we use cocoa powder. I often use raw cacao powder for my baked goods, but unsweetened cocoa powder works great too!

Baking Soda: Baking soda helps leaven cookies. Without it, cookies spread out rather than fluffing up. Don’t skip it!

Sea Salt: Enhancing the flavor of these cookies, sea salt brings out the sweetness and the rich chocolate flavor in these cookies. You can always sprinkle the cookie dough with sea salt too just before you put the dough in the oven if you love the chocolate sea salt combo!

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies: The double chocolate portion of the recipe! Use your favorite sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Lily’s Keto Chocolate Chips) to make these cookies extra chocolatey, gooey, and sweet. You can also do as I do sometimes and chop up a sugar-free chocolate bar (I also use Lily’s Dark Chocolate Bars) for even larger hunks of chocolate. 🙂

How to Make Keto Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:

In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and beat until combined. Scrape the edges of the stand mixer using a rubber spatula.

In a separate bowl, stir together the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt until well-combined. 

Pour the flour mixture into the stand mixer with the butter-sugar and beat on medium-high speed until a thick dough forms. 

Add in the chocolate chips/chunks and beat until combined.

Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Scoop mounds of dough using a small ice cream scooper or form dough into balls using your hand. Drop dough on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies reach desired done-ness.

Allow cookies to cool at least 15 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool the rest of the way.

Made these and they taste incredible! Fantastic recipe. Only issue was that they did not melt down during baking, so took a jar to smash so they would bake well.

I can't have eggs. Do you think these cookies will work using an egg replacer like flax egg?

Julia

Hi Patricia,

I haven't tested it yet, but I think the cookies won't hold together well without the egg...Grain-free cookies are pretty testy like that! Let me know if you give it a shot with an egg replacer. :D
