These vegan keto cookies with chocolate chips are delicious chewy keto almond flour cookies to snack on! Plus, these egg-free keto cookies are also gluten-free with only 2.8 grams of net carbs per serving.
Most keto vegan cookies use sugar-free maple-flavored syrup or nut butter like cashew butter or almond butter as an egg replacer.
However, these options drastically raise the fiber and result in cookies that can be difficult to digest.
Here I am sharing a vegan keto cookie recipe without liquid sweetener or nut butter. They are gut-friendly, paleo with a very low carb count – only 2.8 grams of net carbs per cookie.
A vegan keto cookie recipe is an egg-free and dairy-free keto cookie recipe. Instead of eggs or dairy, the recipe uses a great balance of keto flours to achieve low carb cookies with a delicious and chewy texture.
The ingredients you need to make a keto vegan cookie dough are:
First, combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl except the chocolate chips. Then, stir in liquid ingredients until a sticky cookie dough forms. Now, stir in the sugar-free chocolate chips until well incorporated.

Preheat oven to 350F (180C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Set aside. Then, scoop the cookie dough and roll it between your hands to form a round cookie dough ball.
This original recipe makes 8 keto cookies of about 45g (1.6 oz/2oz) each.
Place each cookie dough ball onto the prepared baking sheet leaving half thumb space between each cookie.
Using the palm of your hand, press down each cookie dough ball into a flat cookie. The thinner, the crispier they get. Try to keep the center thicker than the sides to have a soft, chewy cookie with crispy borders.
Bake your cookies for 15 -18 minutes or until the sides are golden brown and the top starts to brown. If the top is too white in color, the cookies are uncooked and will be too soft. Keep baking until slightly golden on top.
Cool completely to appreciate the best texture.
First, cool these keto vegan cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
Then, slide a flat tool like a spatula under each cookie and transfer them one by one onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
It takes about 1 hour to reach room temperature. You can eat them before, but if your cookies are hot or lukewarm, they are soft. Be patient to appreciate their best texture.

Sure, you can replace almond flour with any of the nut-free keto flours below:
These vegan keto chocolate chip cookies store very well for 1 week at room temperature.
I recommend placing the cookies in a cookie jar or any sealed airtight container to prevent them from softening.
They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw the cookies 3 hours before serving at room temperature.
On a keto diet, we don’t mind eating eggs or dairy. However, this recipe is a vegan keto cookie recipe.
It means it’s naturally egg-free and dairy-free, and you don’t need to add any egg to achieve a delicious texture.
Adding eggs to this recipe will actually create a fluffy, wet batter that won’t set as a cookie. If you don’t mind eggs or butter in your recipe, try my almond flour chocolate chips cookie recipe instead.
Eggs are a classic protein source in a keto diet, but you don’t need to add eggs to any meal or keto snacks you eat!
In fact, you can reach a similar texture and low amount of carbs per serving in many keto bread recipes or keto cookies recipe without using eggs.
Some of the many benefits of removing eggs in keto baking are:
