These Keto Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are all-things soft, chewy, crispy, gooey, and absolutely sinfully rich in chocolate amazingness!

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.

Let’s chat about the simple ingredients needed for these tasty cookies.

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. My top three go-to brands of sugar-free sweeteners are Lakanto, Swerve, and Truvia.

If you have sugar-free brown sugar on hand, I recommend using it, as it produces a little richness that is so inviting! 

Egg: One egg helps hold these cookies together, gives them a chewiness and a bit of fluff.

Pro Tip: 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 bear 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. 

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. 🙂

Well.....I forgot the egg and the dough has already been in the fridge 3 hours, too hard to mix in now. Oh, well. Let's see what happens LOL!

Ah bummer, haha! If you want to still try it, you could let the dough come to room temperature and then try to mix the egg in. May still work! xoxo

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.
