Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
Keto Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favourite keto cookies. These low carb cookies are the perfect recipe to make for any occasion; make them for keto workplace treats, a sneaky treat for yourself, or a sneaky healthy treat for the kids.

Preheat the oven to 180C (355F). Microwave the butter for 30 seconds to melt, but make sure it is not hot.
Place the butter and erythritol in a mixing bowl and beat until combined. Add the vanilla and egg, and beat on low for another 15 seconds exactly.
Add the almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Beat until well combined.
Press the dough together and remove from the bowl. Knead in the chocolate chips with your hands.
Divide and shape the dough into 12 balls (or use a small ice cream scoop) and place on a baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes at 180C (355F).

CAN I SUBSTITUTE ANY INGREDIENTS IN THIS RECIPE?
I have showcased different ingredients to show you how using alternatives might affect the quality of the cookie.
- Fine Almond Flour: It still works, but results in a too flat for my liking.
- Coconut Flour: It's pretty bad, so don't try it.
- Coconut Oil: It also doesn't work that well. The cookies melt too quickly and stay in more of a ball shape.
- Without Xanthan Gum: Too flat. If you baked the cookies for a little less time, it could definitely work. I suggest 8 minutes.
- You can also substitute Xanthan Gum with Gelatin (1 tsp).
WHERE CAN I PURCHASE SUGAR-FREE CHOCOLATE CHIPS?
Lily's do a great quality sugar-free chocolate chip, which works great in this recipe.
However, if you don't have access to those specific choc chips, you can always just use:
- Liquid Stevia: The cookies came out hard as a rock.
My Cookies Aren't Flat Like Yours? What Did I Do Wrong?
Some people’s cookies didn’t flatten in the oven when making this recipe. If you are not using 100% pure erythritol, your cookies will not flatten. I use 100% erythritol in this recipe and it works every time.
If they still don’t melt into cookie shapes in the oven within the first 5 minutes, it either means that you’ve added too much flour or you’ve not melted the butter as shown above. But don't worry! You can easily press them down with fork midway through cooking.
If you're using ghee instead of butter, you'll need to experiement with the ratio, it won't be 1:1 ratio for butter, I'd use less.
- Chopped up 90% Lindt chocolate
- 100% bakers chocolate.
