How To Make No-Bake Keto Cookies
This is the easiest no-bake keto cluster recipe! Trust me; anyone can make these low-carb treats. 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.
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 so it’s cold and will contribute to hardening the cookies.
Pour the almond butter into a microwave-safe bowl and add the coconut oil, and sugar-free chocolate chips.
Microwave the bowl in 30-second bursts, stirring between each burst to prevent the almond butter from burning.
It should take a maximum of 90 seconds to fully combine all your no-bake keto cookie ingredients.
If you don’t like using a microwave, you can also use a bain-marie. It will just take you about 5 minutes to fully melt the chocolate.
You can also use a saucepan on medium-low heat and store the chocolate almond butter mixture while it melts.
Slice or crush raw almonds or use slivered almonds. Pour the almonds with the chia seeds into the no-bake cookie mixture.
Use a silicone spatula to fully cover the almonds with the chocolate batter.
Remove the prepared baking sheet or plate from the freezer and scoop some no-bake keto cookie batter with a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop.
Then place the batter onto the prepared cold plate covered with parchment paper.
Since the plate is cold, the cookie won’t expand too much, and the base should quickly harden.
Leave about one thumb of space between the keto no-bake cookie just in case they expand slightly and to make it easier to take them out.
You should be able to form 10 bite-size cookies. If you want more cookies, double the recipe!
Place the plate back in the freezer for 10 minutes to let them harden completely before enjoying them.
If 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 nut butter:
- Sliced almonds can be replaced by coconut flakes or toasted coconut flakes.
- Almond butter can be substituted the almond butter for 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.
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 and they will maintain their texture.
They will last for up to 3 weeks when stored in the fridge.
You can also freeze them in small bags or containers and keep them for 3 months easily in the freezer.
Thaw them in the fridge, or at room temperature for a few minutes since they defrost quickly. You can also eat them frozen, it’s just as excellent.
