How to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat your oven to 325F.
In a mixing bowl, add the almond flour and oat fiber and whisk well, breaking up any lumps.
In a separate bowl, add the butter, brown Swerve and Swerve confectioners and mix using a hand mixer until well combined.
Mix in the remaining ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and continue to mix until smooth.
Take your dry ingredients, add them slowly into the wet mixture and mix until well incorporated. Next, fold in the chocolate chips, by hand.
Yes, there are a lot of chocolate chips because...well...who doesn't love extra chocolate chips? YUM!
After your dough is mixed, use a small cookie scoop or melon baller to scoop out the dough onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper or a Silpat.
Next, gently press down each cookie to flatten them out just a little. Be sure you leave room between them, because they'll spread some.
These cookies bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden and the edges are a little darker. Start watching them around 15 minutes, you don't want to over bake them.
The smell of these low carb chocolate chip cookies will be amazing as they come out of the oven. You will understand why they are described as mouth-watering.
They will be soft at first, so the key to making them hold together and the edges being crispy is by allowing them to cool completely (at least 30 minutes) on a cooling rack.
You should be able to get 26 chocolate chip cookies that are 3" in diameter (once baked) from this recipe.
You may notice that there are only 24 cookies in the photo. That's because I ate two of them before I even took the pics. That is how good they are!!
You can make these chocolate chip cookies whatever size you like, but you'll just have to adjust the baking time accordingly. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
And speaking of leftovers, for a Neapolitan flavored treat, crumble one of these Keto chocolate chip cookies over a serving of this Strawberry Ice Cream.
Or, for an extra chocolatey treat serve them along with this rich and delicious Keto Avocado Chocolate Mousse.
You're going to simply love these buttery, low carb, chocolate chip cookies. There's been little debate since they were invented in the 1930's that the chocolate chip cookie has been America's choice for favorite cookie.
And now, with the availability of low carb flours like almond flour, coconut flour and products like oat fiber, even people following Keto or low carb diets get to enjoy all the flavors of traditional chocolate chip cookies.
What is Oat Fiber? Is Oat Fiber Keto?
Oat Fiber is made from grinding the outer husks of oats. How healthy is oat fiber? It's pure insoluble fiber, which doesn't dissolve in water and isn't broken down in the digestive tract, so it has zero net carbs and is perfect for a Keto Diet. It helps give a more traditional texture and that's why I use it so often. Check out all the Keto Oat Fiber Recipes you can make!
What is a Substitute for Oat Fiber?
To get the best results, it's best to use oat fiber if you can. If you're unable to find it, try a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour. Since both are very absorbent, you might have to add more liquid.

My husband and I REALLY like these easy cookies. My husband remarked on them several times! I forgot the egg (!!?!) and they still turned out sooo good. Thank you so much, Julianne!

You're so welcome! I am thrilled you and your husband both enjoyed them. Thank you for the kind words.
Hi, I can't find oat fiber in my local stores and it's going to take a few days to get it shipped. Can I sub another type of flour?
Keto Cooking Christian
Honestly, I haven't found anything that works as well, so it's really worth waiting for. If you really need to make them before your oat fiber arrives, you might be able to use a combination of coconut flour and psyllium husk powder. Since I haven't tried it, I can't say for sure how they may turn out.
The best cookie I ever made, low carb or not! 🙂 I used psyllium and coconut flour sub and it worked great. My husband has flipped over them! Big hit in our house!! Thank you so much, Julianne! And the Bible verses are wonderful to add power and sparkle. 😀
Keto Cooking Christian
Great to hear the substitution worked well and hubby loved them! I'm glad you love the scripture, thanks for letting me know!
Hello, can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour in this recipe? If so what would be the proportion? Thanks.
Keto Cooking Christian
I've never made it using coconut flour, so I can't say for sure. Being that there is already oat fiber in this recipe for added texture, I wouldn't recommend using coconut flour as well. The reason being is that they are both very absorbent, so you would have to add a lot more liquid and eggs, which would completely change the recipe.
