Course Snack
Servings 18 cookies


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup monkfruit or your preferred keto-friendly sweetener
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips


Preheat Your Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 175°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Mix Dry Ingredients

  • In a medium bowl, combine the almond flour, bi-carb soda, and salt. Set aside.

Cream Butter and Sweetener

  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter and sweetener together until creamy and well combined. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

Add Egg and Vanilla

  • Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture and continue to beat until fully incorporated.

Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until a dough forms. Make sure everything is well combined.

Fold in Chocolate Chips

  • Gently fold in the sugar-free chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Scoop and Shape Cookies

  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop out portions of the dough and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Flatten each scoop slightly with your hand or the back of a spoon to form cookie shapes.


  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are golden brown. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning.

Cool and Enjoy

  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy your keto chocolate chip cookies with your favorite keto-friendly beverage!

Tips for Perfect Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Use Softened Butter: Ensure your butter is softened to room temperature for easier mixing and a smoother dough.
  • Sweetener Choice: Erythritol works well, but you can use other keto-friendly sweeteners like monk fruit or stevia. Just be mindful of the conversion rates.
  • Storage: Store your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week, or freeze them for longer storage.



Can I substitute almond flour with coconut flour?

Almond flour and coconut flour are not directly interchangeable due to their different properties. Coconut flour is much more absorbent, so you would need to adjust the liquid ingredients significantly. Stick to almond flour for the best results.

How many carbs are in these cookies?

Each cookie contains approximately 2-3 grams of net carbs, depending on the specific ingredients and portion size.

Can I add nuts or other mix-ins to this recipe?

Absolutely! Feel free to add chopped nuts, shredded coconut, or other keto-friendly mix-ins to customise your cookies.
