With my Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, you'll be enjoying all the ooey gooey-ness of chocolate cookies without all the carbs and sugar!
Why You Need These Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Keto. Only 2 net carbs per cookie.
- Gluten Free. This low carb chocolate chip cookie recipe uses almond flour, so they don't contain gluten.
- Sugar Free. I use Truvia and sugar free chocolate chips instead of real sugar.
- Fast. Done in under 30 minutes.
- Easy. Just pour, mix, and bake.
- Delicious. What's better than the perfect low carb cookie?
Let's face it when you crave dessert you crave something sugary and full of carbs. So when you're on a Keto diet you've got to find low carb desserts to satisfy that sweet tooth. And the best way to do that is to simply sub out the high carb ingredients with something low carb. That's where my low-carb dessert recipes come into play.
My Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe swaps out the flour for almond flour and the sugar for Truvia, resulting in delicious easy chocolate chip keto cookies that are every bit as good as the original!
Don't believe me? Try them for yourself. As a matter of fact, bake some for your non-keto friends. They'll be surprised to find out that they're low-carb and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. And don't be surprised if anybody asks for the recipe. Keto cookies are the answer to your craving woes.

Can I Eat A Chocolate Chip Cookie On Keto?
Absolutely. But it has to be my recipe. Don't go grab just any chocolate chip cookie. That's sure to throw you out of ketosis. This cookie with sugar-free chocolate chips will cure your cravings without ruining your macros for the day.
How Many Carbs Are In A Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie?
Three. Yes, these cookies still have 3 carbs each. But if you're counting net carbs, they only have 2. While that may sound like a lot to you, I promise they're worth it.
And if you've ever NEEDED a chocolate chip cookie while watching what you eat, you know that those 2 carbs are way more reasonable than 9 in a non-keto cookie.
Ingredients You'll Need
- Superfine Almond Flour
- Baking Powder
- Kosher Salt
- vanilla extract
- Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips
- Chopped nuts
Can You Have Almond Flour On Keto?
Yes, you can. I use almond flour in these chocolate chip cookies as a low-carb replacement for traditional flour. It holds up just as well as all-purpose flour and makes for an almost unidentifiable substitution in the finished product. Plus, it only has one net carb per serving (though a serving is fairly small).
Are Lily's Chocolate Chips Keto?
You'll be happy to hear that one of the most popular brands of sugar-free chocolate chips on the market is in fact keto!
