Healthy Chocolate Chip keto Cookies - Low Carb and Gluten Free

These Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies are so easy to make and they are kid approved!  Make them anytime you get that chocolate chip cookie craving…without the guilt!

Have I ever mentioned that I am a self proclaimed cookie monster?  I think I may have mentioned it in my post on low carb butter cookie energy bites.  Anyway, I love the cookies, but they do not love my hips and thighs, if you know what I mean.  I was on a mission, a cookie creation mission.  Because I cannot live without chocolate chip cookies any more!

I’m just a little obsessed, can’t you tell?

These keto chocolate chip cookies are low carb (yes even the chocolate chips), gluten free, and absolutely delicious.  But how can that be, Jennifer?  I could lie and say it is magic, but I shall be honest and attribute this amazing recipe to Lilys chocolate chips, almond flour, and swerve sweetener.  That’s how it can be, sugar plum.

As you can see, these keto chocolate chip cookies are approved by my picky little rug rats.  When I served them to my pickiest one, I watched out of the corner of my eye, and waited for that all too familiar scowl and BLECK!, sound to come out of his mouth.  But to my surprise, he uttered the words “Mommy, these are the best cookies ever!”  Music to my ears.

As you also may know, my husband, AKA child number 3 (he knows I say that), is the pickiest one of all.  He was raised on buttered noodles, Hi-C, and hot dogs.  He accepted these keto chocolate chip cookies into his life with open arms!

You get keto chocolate chip cookies, and you get chocolate chip cookies, and they were keto and we all lived happily ever after!

Except my boy has never had a green vegetable pass through his lips in his almost 8 years of existence.  I digress.  One day, one day.



I have been getting a few irate people saying I have calculated the macros wrong on this keto chocolate chip cookie recipe and they are going to be knocked out of ketosis.  Please note, you must subtract the erythritol in the swerve and the lily’s chocolate chips and subtract the fiber to get an accurate carb count.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350
  2. Add softened butter (or coconut oil) and swerve sweetener in a stand mixer, mix on medium until combined

  3. add 2 eggs and vanilla and mix until combined
  4. combine almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl
  5. add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined
  6. Fold in Lily's Chocolate Chips
  7. Scoop 18-20 cookies onto lined baking sheet (you may need 2 depending on how big your sheets are).  Flatten them out by pressing down on the top slightly (optional)

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes
  9. Let cool on the cookies sheets for 30 minutes or so, unless you've already ate them all! These will stay soft and delicious for at least 4 days in an air tight container (that's how long they lasted at my house! Surprising, I know!)

    Absolutley delicious!!! Very skeptical but they came out so yummy like real chocolate chip cookies. I feel like I’m cheating!!! I followed recipe exactly. So happy!!!!!

    Swerve has 4 carbs per teaspoon. 32 teaspoons in 2/3 of a cup = 128 carbs in Sweve sweetener alone in this recipe. I do not understand why those carbs are not included in the total carb count? Am I missing something?

      • Nicole Rose

      Mary, the carbohydrates in Swerve do not affect blood sugar and are considered non-impact. So even though Swerve has 4 carbs, and 0 NET carbs.

    what am i doing wrong? my mixture was not as dark as yours and mine seems a bit sticky. not as thick as yours….did i use too much butter maybe? I’m just praying they turn out good. I have wasted so much almond flour trying to bake things 🙁 I totally suck at this!!!!

    These are by far the best Ch Chip Cookie that I have made while on Keto! All the others I’ve tried haven’t tasted good or the texture was yuck! These are soft and taste great! I will be saving this to make again! I can’t wait for the hubby to get home and try one!

      These are incredible thank you for the recipe!! Question: I keep getting 6 net carbs per cookie. The top of recipe says 2 net carbs and at the bottom it says 4 net carbs per cookie? They are incredible either way just want to know which to calculate for me macros. Here is what I am doing: 3 cups Almond flour is 96 net carbs, 4.5 ounces of Lily’s chips are 18net carbs and 1 net carb for vanilla. That is a total of 115 net carbs divided by 20 cookies is 5.75 net carbs?? Please help!! These are INCREDIBLE cookies and I want to eat as many as I can lol!!

        • jenniferbanz
        • March 10, 2019

        The almond flour I use is 3 net carbs per 1/4 cup…so 36 net carbs for the whole recipe.

    Made these with xylitol and stevia the first time. Ok, they were. I added macadamia nuts.
    The second time i made them, i used swerve xylitol and the swerve brown sugar. Doubled up on the macadamia nuts and… omg. Perfection. Perfection!

    I ran out of almond flour after 2 cups.rookie mistake. Rest of receipe was the same. How does the 1 missing cup affect the carb and net carb count? Thanks

    OMG!! I decided to make chocolate chip cookies on this cold blistery Sunday and stumbled onto this recipe.
    The reviews were good, the photos looked good, and I love almond flour over coconut flour in baked goods.
    Wow! I tried the batter first and couldn’t believe how “real” and yummy it tasted.
    I baked for 10 minutes, crispy on edges soft baked in middle.(Not under cooked)
    Good consistency, not too thin, or thick.
    I opted to flatten them some before baking.
    I was worried they would be thin crispy discs.
    They are perfect!
    I added swerve granular, and swerve brown.
    A little more of the granular but still adding to the 2/3 amount.
    Love tasting that little bit of brown sugar! Delicious!!
    Only thing I would do different next time is use the Lily’s chocolate chips.
    I had a bar of 100% chocolate that I cut up into chunks,
    so they are little on the unsweet side.
    I’m so not complaining though because they are phenomenal.
    It’s actually kinda nice to have the unsweet chocolate sometimes.
    It really allows you to taste everything else in the cookie!! The brown sugar, salt, and butter make up for it in every little bite!
    Heaven on this keto diet!
    You know you could make so much money if you could market these somehow lol. Keto products are a Desired and HOT item these days!! Especially good ones!
    Have you seen how much all these Keto products go for?! It’s a good time to be a keto maker! Chachiiiiiing! 💸💰
    Anyway awesome recipe,
    my picky 4 year old even loves them!
    We will keep this as our regular recipe from now on!
    Craving satisfied 🍪❤️
    Thanks again

    P.s. I have gorgeous photos of my cookies but I can’t find the option to share here?
    Guess you will have to take my word for it!
    They are beautiful!

    Made these tonight and they were yummy but a bit dry. Made them for my hubby and he had to drink a lot of milk with them. Thank you for this yummy recipe. Any tips on how to make it a bit more moist? I did use 1 cup of coconut flour along with the almond because I didn’t have enough almond.

      • jenniferbanz
      • February 11, 2019

      Coconut flour is the culprit. It is very absorbent so a little goes a long way. Stick with just almond flour and they shouldn’t be dry.

        • Brenna Orr
        • February 28, 2019

        I don’t have almond flour. Can I use Bob’s red mill 1:1 all purpose GF flour blend? I’m not sure if that’s keto or not?… please let me know. I’m making these for a friend who is keto.

    So so good!! I made using butter and Splenda (simply because it’s what I had on hand). I added 4 mins to the cooking time. Ohmygoodness, yum! My husband loved them, too! Thank you!!

    • S Craig
    • February 5, 2019

    These are so delicious, and best of all you really feel like you are eating the real thing! I freeze them as soon as they cool & actually like them right out of the freezer. Thank you for this recipe!

    • February 3, 2019

    These are delicious ! I think next time I may switch out the chocolate chips for unsweetened coconut. Just for a little additional texture, but they are perfect as they are 🙂

    • Sherri
    • February 1, 2019

    They are awesome! I did use butter and coconut oil and a mixture of swerve and brown Splenda . Also only used 1/4 tsp of salt and baking soda. Did add 1/2 tsp of baking powder . They are amazing! Thank you!

    • Kris
    • January 23, 2019

    I just made these and they are really good! I did not have any issues with dryness- they were very moist. I used butter and truvia for the sweetner; also sugar free chocolate chips. I definitely will make again! Thank you!

    • Jewels
    • January 22, 2019

    I made these for the first time with swerve powdered as the powdered generally has less of a cooling affect in baked goods. Baked for ten minutes – they are lovely cakes cookies- kind of like a pound cake had a cookie baby. So tasty. I think using a good butter really made them delicious. Would love to try them with sukrin gold for a brown sugar flavor. Thanks for a good recipe!

      • Rhonda Polfus-Herrod
      • February 15, 2019

      My almond flour was brown…is that the wrong type? They were dry and tasted nothing like chocolate chip cookies ☹️ Also, if you use the Sukrin gold, how much would you use? Thank you I’d like to try it again!

        • jenniferbanz
        • February 17, 2019

        I think the almond flour you used was not as coarsely ground which may have made them dry. You would use the same amount fo sukrin gold

    • January 20, 2019

    Loved these cookies! Made them a couple weeks ago and have a batch just coming out of the oven now. I put some chopped pecans and walnuts in mine and I found that it helped take away some of that artificial sweetener taste. They are the perfect low carb treat!

      • Kaitlin
      • January 28, 2019

      How many nuts did you add? Thanks!

        • Robin Wenz
        • February 24, 2019

        Nuts are always a personal preference – some people don’t like nuts but nut lovers will eyeball the amount and dump according to how much nuts they like in a cookie! If you only like a nut or two you’re gonna dump less nuts obviously
