The toughest part about keto-friendly recipes is figuring out how to make desserts that are low-carb, sugar-free and still taste great. Well, look no further! This chocolate chip cookie recipe will save you. It has just the right about of sweetness, without any weird aftertaste (which can be common with alternative sweeteners). We love Swerve and Lily's chocolate chip as keto alternatives but feel free to use your favorites.
The differences between this recipe and any other typical chocolate chip cookie, end at the ingredients. You are going to prep these as you would any other cookie, cream the eggs and butter and then incorporate the dry ingredients. Lay out your cookies on a sheet and bake! In 30 minutes you will have delicious, warm and keto chocolate chip cookies. Just try and stop after eating just one, we dare you. Flattening them will help give them more of a spread and create the cookie shape we know and love. Just spray the bottom of a glass with cooking spray (or wet your hands slightly) to make it easier and less sticky.
You can also freeze the dough for up to 3 months to have a cookie whenever the craving hits. Set the dough in the refrigerator to thaw or add a couple extra minutes to the bake time if baking from frozen.
As cliche as it is to say it, after taking your first bite of one of these cookies, you'll be shocked that they are keto. And for 100+ more insanely delicious keto recipes just like this one, check out our new book, Keto for Carb Lovers.
