I love finding the best recipes and this keto chocolate chip cookie with almond flour is one of my favorite. It will definitely satisfy your chocolate chip cravings just like my chocolate chip cookie dough truffles and keto chocolate chip mug cake.
These keto chocolate chip cookies with almond flour taste like a real chocolate chip cookie. I have received countless rave reviews after posting this recipe on my instagram page and YouTube channel. Many of my followers agree they are the best keto chocolate chip cookies they have had. They are the perfect combination of sweet, chewy, and crispiness. These cookies are so good that my favorite keto chocolate chip manufacturer, ChocZero, decided to put them on that back of their bag of dark chocolate chips! And they love that they call for almond flour instead of coconut flour.
Keto Chocolate Chip cookies are an easy keto cookie to make and can be made in less than 30 minutes. When you are craving a cookie or keto chocolate chip cookie dough, you can satisfy it quickly with this easy low carb cookie recipe.
I came up with this recipe for keto chocolate cookies on accident. I was making my keto butter bars and added too much almond flour by accident. Instead of tossing out all the dough, I decided to turn it into something. The dough looked similar to cookie dough, so I added an egg, baking powder and chocolate chips to the almond flour mixture. Then baked them. And that’s how the best keto cookies with almond flour were created. LOL!
How to make keto chocolate chip cookies with almond flour
- Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl – almond flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- Cream softened butter with sweetener until fluffy.
- Add in egg, heavy cream and vanilla.
- Slowly mix in dry ingredients. Add sugar-free chocolate chips.
- Scoop and bake!
- Let cool before handling.
- Almond flour – This recipe uses almond flour as it is the preferred keto flour among most and it is readily available at most larger grocery stores. If you needed to use coconut flour, you could try using 2/3 to 3/4 cup of coconut flour instead.
- Baking powder – The leavening agent to help puff up these cookies and get them to rise.
- Salt – Salt is a necessary ingredient for flavor and to enhance the sweetness of the keto cookies.
- Butter – Make sure you are using real butter and not margarine. Margarine can cause your cookies to spread.
- Sweetener – You can use your favorite sugar-free sweetener in this recipe as long as it measures cup for cup like sugar. I like to use a erythritol monkfruit blend sweetener. Try experimenting with brown sugar substitutes too.
- Egg – Helps the mixture bind together and helps makes these cookies soft, chewy and fluffy.
- Heavy cream – Cream is added to dilute any artificial flavors that come from adding nut flours or sugar-free sweeteners.
- Chocolate chips – Make sure you use sugar-free chocolate chips. Besides dark chocolate chips, try experimenting with white chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips. If you can’t source keto chocolate chips, use a 90% dark chocolate bar and cut the bar into chunks.
