5 Stars (1 Reviews) 3 Comments

Ultra soft and cake-like, these gooey keto German chocolate cookies are filled with components of a favorite cake - chocolate, pecans and coconut!

For the chocolate & nut lovers, these keto German chocolate cookies need to be added to your baking list. They are a double chocolate chip cookie, meaning they have a chocolate cookie based rather than just a plain chocolate chip cookie. And these keto cookies have a texture similar to chocolate cake, so they are soft and fluffy.

Toss in some pecans (or your favorite nuts) and shredded coconut flakes to turn a simple keto chocolate cookie into that iconic German Chocolate flavor.

These fudgy, chocolate keto cookies are utterly addicting and hardly taste sugar-free. They can be enjoyed any time of year your chocolate cravings hit, but are especially loved around the holidays.

How to make Keto German Chocolate Cookies

  1. Combine the dry ingredients – almond flour, oat fiber, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.

Keto German Chocolate Cookies: FAQS

Can I substitute with another flour other than almond flour?

I haven't tried any other keto flours in this recipe other than almond flour so I can't guarantee it would work. If I were to experiment, I would try using 1/4 cup of coconut flour or 1/2 cup lupin flour or 1 cup of sunflower seed flour in place of the almond flour. But do so at your own risk.

Can I use other nuts other than pecans?

Yes! In place of pecans, you can use chopped walnuts, almonds or even macadamia nuts.

I don't have oat fiber. What can I substitute?

Oat fiber is necessary for flavor and texture in this recipe. I don't recommend substituting it. However, you could try adding an extra 1/4 cup of almond flour in its place if you do. I haven't experiment with this so I can't guarantee it will work.

  1. These turned out wonderful!
    Always have loved German Chocolate Cake and these satisfy that childhood delight. Even the picky husband said they are the best keto cookie I have made. They are disappearing fast and it isn’t just me.
    The recipe is easy to put together and will be a regular for me.
    Keep up the great ideas.

    1. I haven’t experimented with bamboo fiber yet. I need to get some to try. It kind of freaks me out to eat something that I consider a tree LOL! But I need to get over that.
