Deep, rich, fudgy, and completely flourless homemade keto chocolate cookies!

Don’t be surprised if the entire batch quickly disappears.

The recipe can be vegan, gluten free, soy free, low carb, paleo, and keto friendly.

It’s been a while since I last posted a keto recipe, and I’ve received a ton of emails from you guys about it. Hopefully these delicious seven-ingredient chocolate fudge cookies can more than make up for it!

The Best Easy Keto Chocolate Cookies

I first made the non keto version of this recipe with regular powdered sugar and LOVED them.

Then I sent the recipe to my mom, asking if she could test them out with erythritol.

She’s not on a keto diet and is usually very skeptical of anything low-carb (She loves carbs!!), so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

But a few hours later, I received a text with a bunch of chocolate cookie photos. It said:

“Possibly my newest favorite cookie of all times.”

So there’s that.

Instead of regular flour, these cookies are made with almond flour, so they’re great for someone on a low carb or gluten free diet.

If you want to make them keto, use powdered erythritol as the sweetener.

Or the recipe also works with regular powdered sugar or unrefined powdered sugar, which you can make by simply pulverizing coconut sugar or raw sugar in a blender until powdered.

So you have lots of options here… Just don’t skip the mini chocolate chips!

Keto Chocolate Cookies

Rich, fudgy, and completely flourless keto chocolate cookies!
Cook Time 11 minutes
Total Time 11 minutes
Yield 8 – 12 cookies
5 from 91 votes


  • 1 cup finely ground almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • scant 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips or sugar free chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp powdered sugar or powdered erythritol
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or additional milk
  • optional powdered sugar or erythritol to coat


  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Stir dry ingredients very well. Add wet to form a dough. (If you’re a visual person, feel free to watch the quick video above of me making the cookies.) If too wet, refrigerate until firm enough to roll into balls with your hands or a cookie scoop. Bake on a greased or parchment-lined tray for 11 minutes. If you want flatter cookies, press down with a fork or spoon. Let cool before handling. If desired, roll in additional powdered sugar or erythritol. Note: Don’t omit or cut back on the amount of chocolate chips or the cookies will not be as fudgy and delicious!

    I made the recipe this morning! While I haven’t sampled the cookies yet, they smell amazing. If the final product resembles your keto mug cake, I’ll be quite content with the results. I used 3 tbsp coconut milk (plus a bit of water), Lily’s chocolate chips, Dutch process cocoa, and homemade almond flour. Sorry that my cookies aren’t as attractive as yours!

      • Rebecca valentine says

        A big fan of your keto recipes. I’m so eager to try this, but I don’t have sugar free chocolate chips available here. Can I just substitute chopped keto chocolates for the chips? Or should I make any changes in the quantity? Thanks ❤️

  2. Kimberly says

    Two days ago I thought about making dark chocolate raspberry thumbprint cookies, did a cursory search for a base recipe, found nothing, but it didn’t matter because I didn’t have the time. When I saw this recipe in my box this morning, and actually now have the time, I got right to it.
    I adapted the recipe a bit (subbed out 24 gr. almond flour for oat flour; subbed 18 gr. coconut sugar and 1/8 t. stevia for 10X, used 2 1/2 T. almond milk plus 1/2 T. veg oil; subbed 1 1/2 oz. chopped 72% fair trade dark chocolate for the chips) and ended up with exactly what I had in mind when I first envisioned the thumbprint.
    As always, thanks CCK, for your excellent recipes.

  3. Jenna says

    I used 5 tbsp of powdered (in magic bullet) allulose instead of erythritol (allulose is not as sweet), and I used 2 tbsp of cream and 1 tbsp of melted butter instead of milk / coconut oil and Lily’s chips. They came out like the most delicious soft brownie cookies ever! Not as planned, but delish! ?

  4. Kim Yuzon says

    Amazing! Super chocolatey. I only had 3/4 cup of almond flour, so I topped up with coconut flour and reg gf all purpose. My dough was a bit dry because of my substitution, so I added 4 or 5 tablespoons of coconut milk instead of two. So, so good. Like Katie’s mom, these might be my new favorite cookie.

  5. Luis says

    Made these for my step-mom who eats Keto, and I modified them to be Mexican Chocolate by adding cinnamon and cayenne. Also finished them with coarse sea salt as they were cooling. Because of the added dry ingredients it was a little drier than I would have liked, but the flavor was still great!

    • brianne says

      I did a batch like that also but added the sea salt into the batter. I also added more almond milk and coconut oil to make sure they weren’t dry. My family loved them!!

  6. Julie M. says

    I have an almond allergy, and I am diabetic; therefore, I cannot use almond flour. What other type(s) of flour would work in this recipe?

  7. Martha Ann says

    My cookies crumbled. How do I keep them together? Were they not cooked enough? This is new oven for me and think it may be a bit slow. Any ideas? I love how healthy they are and want to try the cayenne/ cinnamon version.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hmm, not sure! Mine don’t crumble, but I guess it depends on the specific ingredients and size of the cookies? How big did you make yours? Smaller ones that are fatter (so don’t flatten) would probably have the best chance of staying together no matter what! What ingredients did you use? Jason

  8. Roy Sovis says

    After making this recipe about a half dozen times and doubling it each time, I have tried and learned a few things.
    I added 3/4 cup mini, semi-sweet chocolate chips with a splash of milk chocolate chips. It made the cookies have fudge-like inside.
    I used Almond Milk only and I played around with the amount and settled on 4.5 tablespoons for the perfect amount of moisture.
    Lastly, rather under cook than overcook!
    Excellent recipe! Thanks for posting it!

  9. Taylor says

    These were sooo good!! I’ve tried a lot of keto desserts and this was by far my favorite. I used 3tbsp of unsweetened almond milk. I didn’t have any chocolate chips but I had a Lily’s extra dark chocolate bar that I chopped and used. Coated them in swerve powdered sugar. Definitely making again!

  10. Jumanah says

    I tried these out and they were amazing!! I had to add some more milk because my mixture was too dry for some reason. . . but other than that, everything was great. I put them in the oven for 10 minutes and then let them out to firm up. The cookie was soft and the chips were melty. I 100% recommend!!

  11. Lynn says

    I have just made my 4th batch of these in a week or more. They are absolutely delicious. I used heavy cream because I didn’t want to open a container of almond milk just for 3 tbsp. I have a gas oven so just leave them in for 8 min. and let cool on pan. Yummy, yummy in my tummy.

  12. Carol says

    These were YUMMY – I used coconut oil and they had a slight coconut taste which I totally dug. They were very tasty and filling!

  13. Ruby says

    Saw these cookies on Pintrest and decided to make it. All I can say is WOW!!! These are so delicious and easy to make. Great recipe. Thank you.

  14. Neha says

    These turned out to be sooooo delicious…I used some coconut flour and few walnuts and dried cherries and also jaggery as sweetener…I am hooked to them literally….

  15. Marilyn Weitz says

    The recipes sound great. Another day I am making chocolate fudge cookies. After cooking these cookies how do you store the extras??? Yes I am new to Keto. Marilyn 🤓

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi! They can actually be stored the same as regular cookies and will last around the same amount of time too :). So no need to refrigerate.

    • Fany Garceau says

      They’re won’t be ANY extra! 😄 It yields about 8 balls! They’re fluffy on the inside, crisp on the outside…So perfect.

  16. Judy B says

    Oh my! I made these today and count me as another who agrees with Katie’s mom that these are the best cookies. Yes they are Keto but they just taste decadent! I was tempted to bake them longer because they seemed soft but I resisted the urge and took them out and let them cool and they were perfect! I will definitely be making these again and checking out some other recipes here to try. These are a winner!

  17. Laura says

    This is one of my favorite keto cookie recipes I’ve tried! Great flavor, texture, super easy and hits that chocolate craving.

  18. Allison says

    Girl, you are winning with these recipes! I’ve made your chocolate chip cookie recipe probably 50x or more and discovering this double chocolate version of basically the same cookie has me THRILLED! They’re baking right now. So excited. Thank you! I’ll make sure to tag you on Instagram. ❤️

  19. Eleni says

    I just made these, they are still slightly warm. I’m not a cookie person I can usually resist. But they smell amazing and I had to have one. I literally moaned at the first bite. I was out of coconut oil and powdered sugar, I substituted coconut milk and coconut palm sugar. It was the finest sugar I had in my pantry. I’m going to have to hide some until my husband gets home from work so he can try them too. This is a keeper!

  20. Haley says

    Mine didn’t seem to be coming into a dough as written so I added an egg and a splash of vanilla and they worked perfectly! The taste was good, texture was pretty similar to traditional cookies as well. Of course I made these for myself so I wouldn’t binge on the traditional chocolate chip cookies I baked for my family today, so they pale a bit compared to those, but they help me not feel deprived.

  21. Mary Owens says

    5 stars
    I’ve lost 37 lbs & had been craving chocolate i could enjoy guiltfree so I made these (fully Keto), substituted pecans for the choc chips and added a little almond extract. They are super yummy!! I also made the full sugar version & my husband liked the keto version better even tho he’s not a convert (yet)!! I will definitely be visiting chocolatecoveredkatie again, thanks!!

  22. Kim says

    Should I flatten the cookies before or after baking?
    And I accidentally rolled the dough in powdered sugar before baking instead of after and it worked out fine.

  23. Theron says

    5 stars
    Since I discovered this recipe a few weeks ago, I’d say I’ve made them 3-4 times a week. I love your site and have been making great things from you for years. To me, this is hands-down the best ever recipe.

  24. Chelski says

    5 stars
    I couldn’t believe these would turn out so well without eggs or butter! My new favorite quick and easy cookie recipe for when I have a chocolate craving 🙂 also I have celiacs and been semi-keto for a few years so I play around with tons of those types of recipes. This is the first cookie one I’ve tried that my boyfriend said actually tastes “really good and normal”. LOL. Thank you for this!

  25. Leticia says

    5 stars
    These cookies are delicious and my partner loves them. He is currently on keto so we have been trying out different recipes. I actually substituted yogurt for the milk. Delicious!!

    • CCK Media Team says

      You could probably use a powdered splenda baking blend (one that measures like sugar, then blend that in a blender to make it powdered). We have not tried the recipe with the packet kind of splenda and so can’t say how/if that would work. Be sure to report back if you experiment!

  26. Bev says

    5 stars
    These really are good. Very easy to make (I used just milk, no oil), very chocolatey. My guest scoffed several and was very happy with them. I’m just off to make a second batch…

  27. Marita says

    5 stars
    I used 1.5 tbs of sweetener, 2 tbsp of thickened cream & 1 tbsp of milk. Didn’t dredge them in the sweetener afterwards. These are the best thing I’ve ever made following low carb rules. I hid them from the family so I could have them with my afternoon cuppa for more than one day. It made 11 cookies for me. Definitely making again (maybe when they’re all out again lol).

  28. Lynn Ellis says

    5 stars
    I just made these cookies once again. They are cooling and calling my name. I use whipping cream for the liquid. This time I decided to try a little bit of peppermint flavouring. OK, now I have to taste part of one to see if they still taste good. Be right back. Yes, they are still good…although they might need a drop more peppermint. I did a double batch once and that turned out very well, too. Thanks for making these recipes for us. Deeelicious!
