How To Make Keto Chocolate Cookies
If you don’t know what to choose between a brownie or a cookie, these keto chocolate cookies are the ones you want to make right now.
I love my fudgy chocolate avocado cookies, but when I don’t have avocados, these are the cookies I make instead.
These keto chocolate cookies have all the good things from a brownie – fudgy center, strong chocolate flavor, and even chewy if you can’t wait the next day – all this in one single cookie.
You only need a few simple ingredients to make those.
- Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips – I always used stevia-sweetened chocolate chips, which are already sweet compared to unsweetened chocolate.
- Sugar-Free Crystal Sweetener – erythritol or monk fruit are my two favorites.
- Almond Flour – Almond flour or almond meal anything works. Learn how to choose your Keto Flours.
- Egg – Use a poultry egg or one flax egg if vegan. Combine 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir, set aside, and wait 10 minutes until egg-like texture forms. Use as an egg.
- Coconut Oil – I don’t recommend using any other oil or butter for this recipe to achieve the best brownie cookie texture.
- Baking Powder – to give these keto chocolate cookies a little rise.
- Salt – optional but so delicious to balance the chocolate flavor.
- Vanilla Essence – optional – I love vanilla in baking.
These sugar-free cookies really get chewy the next day.
Just after baking, the texture is fudgy and closer to a brownie, but the longer you store them in the cookie jar, the chewier they become.
I actually love both textures. As with any of my keto cookie recipes, I recommend cooling them down for 10 minutes on the cooking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
It ave the cookie some time to firm up, and they will hold better together.
You can add anything you like to these cookies. My favorite additions are:
- Chopped Pecans or chopped walnuts
- More sugar-free chocolate chips
- Peanut Chunks
- Sliced Almonds
You can store these keto chocolate cookies in a cookie jar for up to 5 days.
The texture is soft and close to a brownie’s when they are fresh. The texture changes the next day, becoming chewier in the center and crispier on the border.
