Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whenever people hear I follow a Keto way of eating, the first thing they say is “Oh, I could never do that”, followed by “I love (insert food here) to much”.

The thing that these people don’t understand, is you can follow a Keto diet and still enjoy the same things they do, such as candy, cake, pasta, bread, and cookies. You just have to prepare them differently. That is why I am sharing my Keto chocolate chip recipe with you today.

I was the cookie king before starting Keto. Cookies (Oreos) were my sweets of choice and can still lead me down the road to a one week binge, but since I have been making these Keto chocolate chip cookies, I haven’t had any slip ups with their sugar filled counterparts.

These are quick to whip up, taste great, and the kids love them also!

So let’s get down to making these delicious Keto chocolate chip cookies.

Macros per cookie

136 Cal / 12.3g Fat / 2.8g Carbs / 1.9g Fiber / 0.9g Net Carbs / 4.5g Protein

Makes 10 Cookies

Ingredients

• ½ cup almond flour

• 6 tbsp granulated erythritol

• 1 egg

• 5 tbsp baking cacoa powder

• 2 tbsp avocado oil

• 1 tsp vanilla extract

• ½ tsp baking powder

• 1 pinch of salt

Vanilla Cream Ingredients:

• ⅓ cup soft butter

• 3 tbsp powdered erythritol

• 1 tsp vanilla extract

• 1 vanilla pod, scraped

Instructions

1. Mix the cacao powder, erythritol, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil in a large bowl.

2. Add the egg and whisk until the ingredients have combined fully.

3. In a separate bowl, mix the almond flour and baking powder.

4. Add a pinch of salt.

5. Add the flour mixture to the liquid chocolate mixture and start to combine both with your hands.

6. Knead until you get a slightly sticky but firm dough.

7. At this point, preheat your oven to 350°F/180°C.

8. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out until it’s approx. 5mm or 0.2″ thick. (It may be easier to split the dough into two or three parts to do this.)

If the dough is still too sticky and you can’t roll it out properly don’t worry, that’s quite normal for this recipe.

9. The two sheets of parchment paper prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin, but you can also wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill it in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours for easier rolling of the dough.

10. Cut out the cookies using a 2″ (5cm) circle-shaped cookie cutter.

11. 6 Place the cookies on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for approx. 6-7 minutes.

12. Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down.

13. While the cookies cool down, beat the soft butter together with the powdered sugar and vanilla extract + inside of vanilla pod until pale and fluffy.

14. Place approx. 1 tbsp of the vanilla buttercream on one of the chocolate cookies and press another equally sized chocolate cookie on top.

Make sure the cookies are cold when you do this.

15. Chill the cookies in the fridge for at least 1 hour before enjoying these little treats!

Store covered with plastic wrap or in an air-tight container in your fridge for up to 1 week.

Keto Lemon Cookies

These Keto lemon cookies are soft and thick. They are packed full of flavor and will leave you in Keto heaven. These and the Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies.

The most important ingredient used in these Keto lemon cookies has to be lemon. You can use bottle lemon, but recommend using fresh lemon juice.

The benefits of using fresh lemon are the same as using any other fresh ingredient, fresh lemon provide more flavorful, have no preservatives or additives, and just taste better overall.

In addition, one more important ingredient in these cookies is cream of tartar. Cream of tartar is one of those things that I had never heard of until I started baking frequently.

Basically, cream of tartar is an ingredient that helps these cookies to rise while they bake, and it also prevents them from burning on the bottom while they bake.
