🔪 How to Make Almond Flour Cookies
Preheat your oven to 335°F.
Add the almond flour, oat fiber and ground cinnamon in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
In a separate bowl, add the butter and both sweeteners, then cream them together using a hand mixer.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue mixing.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix briefly.
Add in the chocolate chips and fold them into the dough by hand. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes or until the dough has firmed up. This step is key, otherwise you will have very flat cookies. Ask me how I know this...
Using a cookie scoop, form cookie dough balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I also like to add a few extra chocolate chips on the top, but this is optional.
Gently press down slightly on the tops and bake for 13-15 minutes or until golden.
Set them on a cooling rack and allow them to cool before you serve them. They will firm up and get crispy around the edges as they continue to cool.
You can make these chocolate chip cookies whatever size you like, but you'll just have to adjust the baking time accordingly.
☑️ Storage Instructions
Store leftovers in an airtight container or food storage bag at room temperature for several days.
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.
💡 Tips for Making the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Use room temperature butter: this will help the butter absorb the sweeteners and give you a creamy base for the cookies. Using a hand mixer helps to incorporate air into the mix, which helps prevent the cookies from being dense.
- Don't rush the chilling: the butter needs time to re-solidify before you bake them. If you rush this step, you run the risk of ending up with very flat cookies.
- Adjust the baking times: I used a standard cookie scoop for this recipe. If you decide to make either smaller or larger cookies, be sure to adjust the cooking times accordingly.
- Use parchment paper: this really helps prevent the cookies from sticking and makes cleanup much easier. A Silpat is also great to use.
- Use a cookie scoop: forming the cookie dough into evenly sized cookies will ensure they are finished cooking at the same time, without any being over or under cooked.
- Gently flatten the dough slightly: this helps the cookies spread better as they bake. If you don't do this, you will have puffier cookies and run the risk of them not being cooked through in the centers.
🔄 Substitutions and Additions
- Oat fiber: the oat fiber is essential in this recipe, as it helps to give the cookies a more traditional texture. If you don’t have oat fiber, you can try using a combination of psyllium husk powder and coconut flour.
- Chocolate chips: I used semi-sweet chocolate chips, but you can use either milk or dark chocolate chips, as long as they are sugar-free.
- Spices: I add a small amount of ground cinnamon to the dough, because it helps give the cookies great flavors, without tasting like cinnamon cookies. You could also add a small amount of nutmeg as well.
- Extracts: this recipe has 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, but if you have vanilla bean paste you can use ½ teaspoon of that instead. A tiny amount of almond or coconut extract would also add a nice flavor, just keep it around ¼ teaspoon because both are pretty strong and will overpower your cookies.
- Nuts: for added contrast in texture you can add a little crunch to your cookies with some chopped almonds, walnuts or pecans.
What are keto cookies made of?
Most Keto chocolate chip cookies use almond flour in the recipe, as does this recipe. I also add in some oat fiber, as it helps add a more traditional texture, as I mentioned above.
What chocolate chips do you use on keto?
Sugar free semi-sweet chocolate chips are used in this keto cookies recipe, but you can use any SF chocolate chips that you like.
Will one cookie put me out of ketosis?
Absolutely not! This recipe uses all Keto friendly ingredients so that's not a concern. Now if you decide to indulge on regular cookies, then it's very possible that it would, but of course that depends on the cookie.
How many keto cookies can you eat a day?
This is really a personal preference, but I've had several of these cookies in a day and had no problem with gaining or being kicked out of ketosis.
