WHAT ARE KETO CHOCOLATE COOKIES?

Chocolate cookies are pretty self-explanatory. They are delicious chocolate circles that make you a little bit happier with every single bite.

These keto chocolate cookies are made with keto-approved ingredients and are high in fat, while keeping the carb count to a minimum.

They make the perfect snack, treat, or dessert for any meal and at any time of year.

KETO CHOCOLATE COOKIE INGREDIENTS

Before you try to make these chocolate cookies, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand first.

After you’ve got all of this on hand, you’re set and ready to go!

HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE COOKIES

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F
  2. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix all ingredients together until well combined
  3. Form cookies by placing individual spoonfuls of batter on a baking sheet with a silicone baking liner
  4. Place in oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes; check constantly to ensure they don’t burn
  5. Remove from oven and let cool; they will continue to harden as they cool
  6. Dip in some heavy cream or almond milk for a chocolatey treat!

STORING YOUR LEFTOVER CHOCOLATE COOKIES

Storing any leftovers is super simple and easy! The easiest way is to store any leftovers is in a glass storage container.

We always recommend these containers because they are so versatile for storing and reheating foods. Of course, these cookies don’t need to be reheated.

After baking, let the cookies cool and place them into the storage container. They can be kept on your countertop for 2 – 3 days so you can munch away at any time!

HOW TO MAKE THESE COOKIES CRISPIER

If you want to make your cookies more crispy, you’re going to have to cook them a tad longer. But, just cooking them longer won’t do the trick by itself.

You’ll need to turn down the temperature of the oven to 225˚F and crack the oven door.

Essentially, what you’re doing is drying the cookies at a lower temperature instead of actually cooking them. Cracking the oven door allows the heat of the oven to move across and out, helping the process.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DIP THESE COOKIES IN MILK?

It certainly is. Of course, you’ll want to make sure you use a low-carb/keto-friendly milk like almond or cashew milk, but it’s certainly possible. Dipping cookies in milk is delicious so why not?

Keep in mind, a quick dunk will work best. Depending on how thick or thin your cookie is, too long and you risk it (just like any cookie) breaking off into the milk.

We all know that’s no fun!

WHAT TO EAT KETO CHOCOLATE COOKIES WITH

These chocolate cookies are a delicious sweet treat, perfect to eat with any meal. You can even make them a snack all by themselves, great for anytime.

Here are some main course ideas you might want to pair these yummy cookies with.

  • Hand Mixer – We’ve said it before, but it’s always worth a repeat. A good hand mixer can truly change your life in the kitchen. Whisks and elbow grease is great, but a hand mixer can make short work of just about any mixing task. If you don’t have one as part of your kitchen utensils, there’s no time like now to fix that!
  • Silicone Baking Liner – A silicone baking liner can really make your kitchen cleanup life so much easier. The liner is placed onto a baking sheet (there are different sizes of liners to fit different sheets) and keeps anything and everything from sticking to the pan. The even better news? The liners help the food cook more evenly and are super easy to clean after you finish cooking!

    These Cookies taste great , how many carbs are in each cookie ?

    • Logan Childress

      Nancy,

      I just revamped the recipe card on this page to reflect all of the nutrition info. Hope this helps!

  2. Christine Bernat

    Could I use sweet drops for the sweetener? I wonder how many drops?

    • Logan Childress

      Christine,

      I would start with about 5 drops and taste the batter (before you mix the egg) to adjust sweetness. Then, when adjusted, add and mix the egg.

  3. Swerve is great (I don’t care for the taste of monk fruit)

  4. Which erythritol would you use. I don’t have the monk fruit yet. I need to order some. Can I use the other.
    Thanks

  5. Can you use these cookies for a cheese cake crust.

    • Logan Childress

      Patti,

      I am sure they would work for this. We have used them in ice cream before!

      • Thanks. They sound wonderful. Do you know if I would need to blind bake them first then pour the cheese cake in and bake. It has to bake for 55 min. I can’t wait to make them. I love your other recipes also. Add me to your email list please.
        Thank you so much

      • Patti,

        You would definitely need to bake it first before adding the cheesecake mixture. Otherwise I don’t think it would set up.

  6. I had the exact opposite problem- the dough was very thick and didn’t spread at all. I’m not sure what I did wrong. I followed the recipe…

    • Logan Childress

      Hello,

      We are sorry to hear this! You could use another tablespoon (or two) of butter to help the mixture not be so thick. Hope this helps!

  7. These are absolutely brilliant! Made them last night and had to stop myself from eating the batch (ate only 2), soooo good! Perfectly crispy and delicious, I only had to bake for 15 minutes. I did find the batter quite runny, though, so my cookies were quite thin. Would there be any way to make these thicker? For the sweetener, 3 tbsp erythritol + 1/8 tsp put monk fruit sweetener, and that worked beautifully. Thank you so much for this.

      Anu,

      Thanks so much for commenting! We are so glad you enjoyed the cookies. As for making the batter thicker, might reduce the amount of butter added. We liked them thin, so we never thought much of it. Let us know if reducing the butter helps!

      • Hello again! So I made this a second time, halving the butter, but unfortunately this did not help.. the batter was thicker but the cookies were significantly softer! Still tasted delicious, though, but I’m afraid I will have to stick with “thin and crispy”. The softness of the second batch made me think that these could also be quite delicious as mini cupcakes… I might give that a go next.. thoughts? 🙂

      • Anu,

        The problem with that would be the recipe doesn’t call for baking powder. If you add that, then you might be in business!
