Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Since changing my eating habits, cookies have been something that I miss – and I’m talking about those thick, chewy, and soft cookies! ? Most of the other recipes I tried left me with thin, crumbly cookies. Worse than that, most other recipes left me with a weird aftertaste. So, like I’ve always heard, “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!“.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies: 

Let me give you a couple of pro tips that will help you create these wonderful, guilt-free, cookies!

  • Pro Tip #1 If you can, use the sweetener Lakanto Monk Fruit! Monk fruit is by far our favorite sweetener. It tastes just like sugar, and leaves you with no nasty aftertaste or cooling effect. Monk Fruit is the best keto friendly sweetener out there, hands down! The Monk fruit to sugar ratio is 1:1, which makes it so much easier to bake with! Our readers get 20% off their entire online purchase HERE and use our code “BUTTERTOGETHERK“.
  • Pro Tip #2 30-40 minutes prior to baking, put the dough in the refrigerator. The dough will get firm which will prevent any spreading or thinning out while it bakes.
  • Pro Tip #3 Xanthan gum is a key ingredient! Commonly found in gluten-free baking, Xanthan gum causes the dough to have an authentic cookie dough texture, keeps the cookies moist, and gives the dough a nice structure. Without Xanthan gum, these cookies would be thin and crispy, rather than thick and soft. I will also link this product below!
  • Pro Tip #4 This recipe makes three dozen cookies (depending on how you size them, of course). If, by chance, you won’t be in the mood to have cookies with every meal for a week straight, consider freezing the dough. You will do yourself a favor if you freeze the dough into balls.

Make Cookies With These Ingredients

  • Lakanto Monk Fruit – Like I said earlier, it’s our favorite sweetener.. taste just like sugar! Zero glycemic index! “BUTTERTOGETHERK” gets you 20% off entire purchase.
  • Xanthan Gum – Thickens the cookies and keeps it together. Must have baking ingredient.
  • Lily’s Chocolate Chips – These are sweetened with Stevia! No sugar added and non GMO. The perfect baking chips on a keto diet!

Another great thing that I love about these cookies is that they are slightly crispy around the edges. These have everything – soft and chewy inside, crispy and crunchy edges! You will want to save this recipe because it will be your go-to every time you make cookies!

Which monkfruit sweetener do you use? Classic (like regular sugar granules) or golden (more like brown sugar)?


Wednesday 7th of April 2021

@Kasey, these cookies are REALLY good! No aftertaste from the monkfruit like some of the others. Highly recommend!


Sunday 28th of March 2021

Classic (granular) for this recipe. Enjoy!


Tuesday 23rd of March 2021

Can you tell me why you use both butter and coconut oil? Does the coconut oil change the texure? Thank you.

Might be a silly question, are these gluten free?


Sunday 17th of January 2021

Not silly at all. They are gluten free!

The recipe only lists net carbs in the nutrition section. I'm diabetic so I need to know actual carbs. Do you have that information?


Tuesday 10th of November 2020

It's 4 total carbs per cookie. Enjoy!
