It’s Officially Here… The BEST Classic Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

yield: 14 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 11 MINUTES

total time: 26 MINUTES

Ingredients

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat together softened butter and brown keto sweetener until creamy. Then mix in the egg, vanilla extract, and lemon juice.

3

In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, gelatin, cinnamon, and salt.

4

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl and mix until a dough forms. Add in chocolate chips and walnuts (optional).

5

Scoop dough balls, approximately 3 tablespoons each, onto the prepared baking sheet. You should get 14. The dough will be a little sticky.

6

Bake for 11 to 12 minutes, until slightly browned around the edges. The color may still look light in the center.

7

Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 4 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. They will be soft so you can move the cookies on the entire parchment paper to the cooling rack if that's easier. Sprinkle the top with a little salt if desired.

8

Let cool for 10 minutes. The cookies will firm up as they cool. Enjoy!

Tips for making the absolute best keto chocolate chip cookies:

  • A very important keto swap here is to use almond flour instead of traditional flour. I am using super-fine almond flour with a small amount of coconut flour and love the soft results!
  • Keto chocolate chips are a must to keep these cookies low-carb. I used ChocZero No Sugar Added Chocolate Chips as they’re an excellent sub-in for regular chocolate chips — along with the great taste, they bake up so well in cookies!
  • My favorite sugar substitute for baking is Brown Swerve because it tastes super similar to traditional brown sugar. See our keto sweetener guide for other options.
  • I also happen to love walnuts in my cookies – along with a sprinkling of flakey kosher salt over the top for an optional, yet extra delicious flavor!

My Hip sidekick Jen made these cookies and here’s what she had to say: 

“Wow! Talk about an awesome chocolate chip cookie! These keto cookies are the closest thing to a non-keto chocolate chip cookie I have ever tasted. The texture is spot on and the melted chocolate chips are wonderful. My family didn’t know that these were keto! These are soft, chewy, gooey, and easy to make. I give this five stars and a huge thumbs up!”

  2. Isabel

    My 11 year old granddaughter and I made them and boy oh boy, are they good!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Aww, that’s awesome! Glad to hear how yummy they turned out, Isabel! Thanks for sharing with us!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I’m so happy! Thanks for sharing ❤️

  3. Roshel

    I just made these cookies. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and about 1/4t of lemon along with the vanilla. I used the rest of my Lily choco chips which only measured 1c so, I added the 1/4c from my backup bag of Hershey’s Kitchens SF choco chips. I purchase them from my local market for about 1/2 the cost of the Lily’s brand at Whole Foods. (I will say the Lily’s brand seem to have better ingredients so, they are my preferred choice.). I also used the regular size cookie scoop and baked 15 cookies with about 1/2c of dough remaining. With that said, I will adjust the values to 1-1/2 to 2 cookies per serving for my calculator. I will also add that I flattened the cookies about 3/4 way through the baking…and I’m glad I did. It helped to make sure they were baked through. To be honest, preKeto, SUGARY FOODS were my problem and I haven’t found any sugar substitute that makes my taste buds happy. However, I am tolerating these cookies. They are the 1st Keto Friendly “fat bom” so far that I enjoy.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh good! SO glad to hear you have enjoyed them Roshel! Thanks for the feedback!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing – so glad you are loving these 👍

  4. Jessica

    Thank you for another great keto recipe. Although mine weren’t as pretty as the picture, they still taste so great. I tried a mix of lilys and white chocolate bake and believe. Turned out tasty.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so great to hear! Thanks Jessica!

  5. Tessa Kendrick

    Can you use confectioners swerve?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      A granular sugar substitute would be best and closes to regular chocolate chip cookies. But, you can try and let us know how it turns out, Tessa Kendrick!

  6. Marina

    I used this recipe, it’s very easy to follow. The amount cookies is pretty good and are very large. The only thing maybe next time I’ll use less sugar they came out a bit too sweet for my liking. Overall great recipe!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for taking a moment to let us know what you thought of them! Glad the recipe was easy to follow.

  7. Marsha

    Can you use an air fryer to cook these

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Marsha! We’re thinking they may be too fragile, and might stick to the machine.

  8. Rodrina Ortiz

    Do you need to have a mixer or can you do it by hand? Also, can unsalted butter be used ?

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Rodrina! You can do it by hand. However it would take alot longer to get a creamy consistency. You can use unsalted butter if you prefer. The salt just balances it out & brings forward the chocolate flavor. Hope this helps❤

  9. Susan

    How should we store these cookies and what is the shelf life? Thank you.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Susan! I believe these would do well for a week or so in an air tight container on the counter. Hope that is helpful!

  10. Jennifer Goddard

    Is there anything I can substitute for the Almond flour? I’m allergic to tree nuts. Thanks!

  11. LJ

    If I won’t use gelatin, do you know if these will these still hold?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! These may not hold up as well or have the same consistency without it. As an alternative, you could try 1 tsp xanthan gum per 1 cup of flour. Let us know how they turn out for you! Hoping this is helpful!

  12. Jessica

    3rd time trying the recipe! All three times I used 1/2tbsp of xanthan gum bc I didn’t have gelatin. First time, I added 1.5 cups of coconut flour instead of tablespoons😣. Then I used proper amount. I didn’t love coconut flavor, so I used isopure zero carb protein powder as a sub for the 3rd try. They came out pretty good. They are not spreading like the photos, maybe it’s the xanthan sub. Child approved.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      The reason we use gelatin in this recipe is that it makes a nice chewy cookie. Xanthum gum is a thickener and doesn’t have the same effect. The Xanthum gum will make them thicker so you may want to grab some Knox gelatin. You can use one packet several times with this recipe and each box has four packets. This means you’ll get about 10 uses out of it for this recipe. Try that and let us know how it turns out! If you don’t want to use coconut flour, you can omit it and increase the almond flour to 1 1/2 cups instead of using protein powder.

      • Jessica

        Thank you for the tips, just need to remember gelatin when I’m next at store lol

        • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

          You are welcome, Jessica!
