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?

keto chocolate chip cookies

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.

    Hi Jennifer, I am new at cooking keto and read through your comments before hand. I used 3/4 cup coconut oil and 1 1/2 coconut flour with the exact same remaining ingredients. I mixed in my kitchenaid and it was all very crumbly. I could pack together a ball (kinda like snowballs!) and hoped for a miracle! They came out beautiful but fell apart crumbled if moved. Do you have any suggestions? Ingredients are not cheap so I hate to waste.. although hubby just swallowed 3!! I personally ate one and had to get water to help it down. I am new in the kitchen so adding this or that without exact instructions is terrifying 🙈 Thank you for all you do!!

      Some coconut flours are more absorbent than others. I would try 3/4 cup of coconut flour to start and add more until the batter thick enough to hold its shape

    I’m a little confused about the nutritional information. I plugged the recipe into https://www.verywellfit.com/recipe-nutrition-analyzer-4157076 and got 13 carbs per cookie. I’ve never used this nutrition analyzer before, so wondering where you got your nutritional information.

    The cookies were FANTASTIC, btw!

      Cooking them longer should work but usually that crispiness is from white flour, unfortunately.

      The batter isn’t normally oily. Did they bake okay? You may need to pop the batter in the fridge for about 10 minutes to firm up the batter if it gets too soft.

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I’m SO excited to try it. Question: at the end of your recipe you have the nutritional information but you don’t say what size serving those numbers are for. For example, 153 calories. Is that for 1 cookie out of 18? This will really help me in recording the amounts. Thanks again!

    Made these tonight and they were pretty good! They do have that almond flour almost grainy texture to them but that is what you sacrifice in order to go low carb! These were delicious for an almond flour cookie though. I added about a cup of chopped pecans and a dash of cinnamon. Everyone in my family agreed they were pretty good for a low carb cookie! Will be making these again, Thanks!!

    I made them exactly as directed and baked for 12 mins, and they are really delicious! The centers were soft and a little crumbly, so next time I will leave them in a minute or two longer till they turn golden on the tops, and not just around the sides. My husband missed having chocolate chip cookies more than any other treat, and now he can have them. Thank you for sharing!

    I made this today and love them! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and I have been in search of THE low carb cookie. I think I may have found it. I used erythritol instead of Swerve since I only had powdered Swerve on hand. So I added just a little stevia to make it a bit sweeter. I may have flattened my a bit more since they looked a bit flatter but still delicious. I always have to remind myself that erythritol firms up as it cools so they are done before you think they are. Have you added walnuts or pecans to these? I think that might make them perfect.

    I had to use a bit more erythritol for them to be the perfect amount of sweet & my cook time took 24 min. I read the comments before making them and pushed flattened the cookies out before putting them in the oven & they came out perfect ! They definitely taste a LOT better when you let them fully cool!

      It needs to be soft like softened butter. If it lives on your counter without melting it will be fine.

    Hi there, I’m a little confused on the final nutritional values. The linked flour product in this recipe has 3 net carbs per 1/4 cup, which at 3 cups would equal 36 net carbs in flour. Our bag of Lily’s chips shows 9g carbs total, 4g fiber, 3g erythritol which results in 2 net carbs per serving, 36 net carbs for the entire bag (which is about 1-1/4 cups). Total of 64 carbs from flour and chips / 20 cookies = 3.2 carbs per cookie, not 2.3, Is my math incorrect?

    Made these tonight. Delicious right out of the oven…a huge hit with my keto eaters! (Quest choc chip cookies are good, but these are better and cheaper…and warm out of the oven) Also cookies looked just like the picture. I will make these for special occasions only…though good enough to eat them everyday. Note: no Lily chips at Health food store (can’t keep them on the shelf) so I bought a Lily chocolate bar and just chopped up half of the bar because I halved the dough recipe. YUM!

    Made these tonight and definitely could enjoy them as an alternative snack to satisfy my sweet tooth. I agree with other comments, they did not bake into flat cookies, but they would if they were shaped flatter to start baking. I refrigerated the dough until it was more firm to create 1 tablespoon sized cookies (a large tablespoon). I made 1/2 the recipe which resulted in 13 cookies, equaling 107 calories per, 7.8g carbs, 9g fat, 3.7g protein, 3.6g fiber, 0g sugar. I used 1 large tablespoon in place of 1/3 cup swerve which had no affect on the carbs, sugars, nor calories. Not too impressed with the carb intake for a Keto recipe, resulting mainly from the lily’s Chocolate chips but I’m going to look out for a better chip choice.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    I ended up with ~45 cookie balls that were 1 tbsp each. Mine also never flattened out and were cooked through with 10 mins, and ended up being a bit dry, so I combined some to make cookie dough balls that were 2 tbsp each–I still had to push them down or they would have just been a ball shaped cookie, and they also ended up being pretty dry Should the almond flour be packed when measured? Also, I’m at high altitude so not sure if that may have made a difference. Looking forward to any tips you all may have! 🙂
