Looking for a healthy, low carb cookie recipe to add to your baking repertoire? These keto pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are the best. They are slightly chewy and perfectly crumbly with wonderful spicing and bursts of melted chocolate gooeyness!
Place the melted butter and erythritol in a mixing bowl and beat using an electric whisk until combined and pale in colour. I use powdered erythritol for a nongrainy cookie but you can use granulated if you prefer.
Add the egg and vanilla, and beat on low for 15 seconds. Stir in the pumpkin puree with a spatula.
Place the almond flour, pumpkin spice, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt in a bowl, and mix to combine.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir to combine using a spatula. Stir in the chocolate chips. You may need to get your hands involved here!
Divide the dough into 12 balls using a small ice cream scoop.
Place on a greaseproof lined baking tray and bake for 8 minutes; gently press the balls with the back of a spoon to flatten. Continue baking for another 7 minutes.
Allow to cool on the baking tray before lifting onto a wire rack to fully cool. The cookies will be slightly fragile whilst hot but will firm up as they cool so resist the urge to overcook them! Store in an airtight Tupperware for up to 4 days.

TOP TIPS TO MASTER THIS RECIPEMelt the butter - Make sure the butter is melted and cooled to room temperature before mixing.Room temperature - Make sure the egg, as well as the butter, are at room temperature.Mix all the dry ingredients together first - This will ensure that the xanthan gum and baking powder are evenly distributed through the mix creating a more even cookie.Almond flour - Choose regular almond flour over super fine. Superfine works but the cookies will be flatter.Xanthan gum - Leaving it out still tastes nice but the cookies will be flat. You could try substituting grass-fed gelatin if you don’t like xanthan gum. I’d estimate 1/4 tsp but I haven’t tried this.
