No-bake Keto Cookies are easy 5-ingredient chocolate almond butter keto clusters ready in 20 minutes. They are perfect for fixing your sweet cravings in no time with only 1.9 grams of net carbs.

If you have been following Sweetashoney for a while, you know I have a sweet tooth, and I am French. As a kid, I used to eat a delicious no-bake french cookie called “rose des sables.”  I created these no-bake keto cookies to bring back some childhood memories without the sugar!

How to make your no-bake keto clusters?

This is the easiest no-bake keto cluster recipe!  Trust me; anyone can make them. It is a no-fail cookie recipe. All you need to make your delicious no-bake keto cookies are 4 wholesome ingredients.

  • Sugar-free dark chocolate chips or bar – I am using stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. Otherwise, you can make your own following my sugar-free chocolate chips recipe.
  • Almond butter – fresh, smooth, and runny. You can also use peanut butter, pecan butter, or macadamia butter to create different cookie flavors.
  • Chia seeds – this is optional but recommended to add a delicious crunch to the cookie along with protein and fiber.
  • Coconut oil – you can use refined coconut oil to avoid the strong coconut flavor of unrefined coconut oil. Don’t use butter, or the cookie will be too soft.
  • Sliced almonds or slivered almonds

How to make nut-free cookies?

I heard you, you can’t eat nuts, and you crave these no-bake keto cookies. Don’t worry. I have lovely nut-free options for you. These no-bake keto cookies taste amazing if you replace the almond butter:

  • Sliced almonds can be replaced by coconut flakes or toasted coconut flakes.
  • Almond butter can be substituted by tahini, also known as sesame seed butter. You can use hulled or unhulled tahini. Both are pretty similar. Another option is to use sunflower seed butter – make sure you check the ingredient list and use no-sugar-added sunflower seed butter.

How to store your keto clusters?

No-bake cookies are better stored in the fridge, especially on hot summer days. However, these ones won’t melt that fast at room temperature. They soften for sure but won’t melt. It means that you can take them away easily, in a small bag or airtight container.

  • Cover a large plate or chopping board with a piece of parchment paper. Place the plate in the freezer while you prepare the cookie batter.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, add almond butter, coconut oil, and sugar-free chocolate chips (or bars chopped in small pieces).
  • Microwave by 30 seconds burst, stirring between to prevent the almond butter from burning. It should take a maximum of 90 seconds to fully combine all your ingredients.
  • If you don't have a microwave, place all the ingredients into a small saucepan. Place under medium heat and stir all the time until the chocolate has melted and all the ingredients are combined.
  • Stir in the sliced almonds and chia seeds. You want to fully cover the almonds and seeds with the chocolate mixture.
  • Remove the plate from the freezer.
  • Spoon some cookie batter, then place the batter onto the prepared cold plate covered with parchment paper. As the plate is cold, the cookie shouldn't expand too much and the base should set fast. Leave 1 thumb space between each cookie just in case they expand slightly. Repeat until no more batter is left. You should be able to form 10 bite-size cookies.
  • Place the plate back in the freezer for 10 minutes or until the chocolate is firm and set.

Storage, freezing, make-ahead snack

  • Store your cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. They are crunchier if stored in the fridge.
  • You can triple the recipe to meal prep your snack for the week and freeze these cookies in a ziplock bag for later. Defrost for 3-4 hours before eating.

    I’m pretty sure I have left a review before. But I made a little change that I thought improved the method of assembling these. First, i use unsweetened peanut butter, goes great with the chocolate. When they’re all mixed together snd ready to drop onto a waxed paper lined chilled plate, i nixed the plate chilling and chilled the mixture for a few minutes. This gives it time for everything to come together better without being hardened. Spoon the slightly chilled portions onto waxed paper and refrigerate or freeze till firm. I actually store mine in the freezer. Great recipe. Love the crunchy chia in there. I’ve made them several time.

  4. The cookies are delicious! I’m thinking there must be a mistake in the nutrition facts. 141 cal for 1 g of cookie? Wow! Should it be 10 g or 100g Or better yet 1000 g? ????
