Keto Cookies

Homemade chocolate chip keto cookies – deliciously soft, flourless, and completely sugar free!

Sugar Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

A recipe for chocolate chip keto cookies has been the hands-down most popular request I’ve been getting over and over again from readers this past month.

On one day in particular, I received four separate requests within hours of each other – and that was when I knew the recipe needed to go to the very top of my to-make list.

It took just a couple of tries to perfect these cookies, and the results are like something between a traditional chocolate chip cookie and a butter cookie. Their texture is so rich and buttery, it’s almost like eating chocolate chip shortbread!

Keto Cookies With Almond Flour

The two types of flour used most often in keto cookie recipes are coconut flour and almond flour.

I chose almond this time, mostly to be different because I’ve already made brownies with coconut flour.

Almond flour (also called almond meal; it’s not really flour at all) is much easier to find nowadays than it was even just a few years ago.

I’d recommend looking in the natural section of a regular grocery store, or at Target, health food stores, or online.

You can also make your own almond flour at home by adding raw almonds to a food processor and pulsing until they reach a flour-like consistency. Be sure not to pulse too long or they’ll turn into almond butter, which is delicious… but not what you want if you’re making these cookies!

Can Sugar Free Cookies Actually Taste Good?

Growing up, whenever we’d go to my grandparents’ house there would be two sections of treats in the cabinet.

One was the regular, full-of-fat-and-sugar junk food section specifically for us kids. The other was comprised of sugar-free JELL-O, granola bars, and low carb cookies for my grandfather who had Diabetes.

One afternoon, I was curious and snuck off with one of the sugar free peanut butter cookies in the “not for children” stash.

All I remember of that cookie was an artificial aspartame taste that lingered long after the first bite was gone. And I definitely didn’t take a second bite!

Thankfully, sugar free desserts have come a long way, and you have numerous options from which to choose if you need to bake without sugar.

For this particular recipe, both powdered erythritol and Sugar Free Powdered Sugar will work. The photos in this post are of keto cookies made with the former.

If I’m making the cookies for myself or to serve a crowd not on the keto diet, I’ll just use regular powdered sugar or powdered coconut sugar, both of which work fine here as well.

(If you want them to be paleo cookies, use powdered coconut sugar, which can be made by simply pulsing regular coconut sugar in a blender until it turns to powder.)

Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 5 large or 10 small



  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Stir dry ingredients very well (so you don’t end up biting into a clump of baking soda!). Add wet to form a dough. Shape into cookies – I used a cookie scoop to first form balls and then shape into cookies. Place on a cookie tray, and bake on the center rack 10-12 minutes. Let cool an additional 10 minutes before handling, as they are very delicate at first but firm up completely once cool. If you try them, be sure to leave a comment or rate the recipe below!

    Omg I’ve made multiple diff keto chocolate chip cookies from recipes online and these are by far the best!!! I’m this is now my go to recipient! So happy I found it!

  2. Colleen says

    Yep, these are tasty! Only thing, I wish I had flattened mine a little before baking. They didn’t spread like I had guessed they would.

  3. Leah Kenyon says

    These are my keto go-to cookies. They are easy to make and absolutely delicious. I don’t even feel guilty about eating them for breakfast.

  4. Sheila Mendoza says

    I tried your recipe and the cookies tasted good. My kids even liked them. I just need to lessen the salt next time. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Heather says

    Phenomenal as cookie dough! But once cooked they tasted yucky. Not sure if it was the Swerve that let us down or what, but just – yuck. We were glad that so much of it didn’t make it onto the cookie sheet. Not exactly sure what went wrong. But again, we’d definitely make them again and just eat the dough. Best keto cookie dough ever.

      Not sure if you meant to leave this comment on a different recipe, as these have sugar-free options clearly listed

  6. Funda G says

    I followed the recipe and used super fine almond flour and all ingredients as directed, but couldn’t get them to look like yours. The dough was greasy but fell apart and was very hard to shape.. do you recommend more almond flour next time? Also, when you measure almond flour what is your method? Like regular flour, packed??

  7. Shirley Lawson says

    I just took these out of the oven and they are gorgeous! So easy. I’ll have to leave another comment after I’ve tasted them. House smells like cookies😁

  8. Shirley Lawson says

    Hi again. I just tasted them and they are very very tasty. My husband even liked them. We are doing keto ( he is because I am lol) so these will be great without all the guilt! Thank you.

  9. Jenniffer LaCroix says

    These cookies were really good. I made 2 batches. The first with chocolate chips, and the second with raisins, cause my husband wanted raisins. Lol. But I really enjoyed the taste, and the texture. I also made your keto brownies. Oh. My. Gosh, they were so good. I will make that recipe again. Sometimes I’m skeptical because I am still somewhat new to these recipes and a few I’ve tried didn’t work out for me, so I’m glad I came across these recipes. Thank you.
