Looking for chewy chocolate cookies that are low carb, gluten-free, sugar free and available on planet Earth? I promise it is! All these amazing qualities can be found in these soft and chewy Keto cookies.
Can I Eat Something Sweet Like a Cookie on Keto?
The answer is yes you can, but it will be counted towards your daily carb limit. You would want to limit the amount of refined sugars you eat anyways because you want to avoid the impact it can have on blood sugar and insulin levels.
Alternatively, to prevent blood sugar spikes and using too much of your carb count, you can use sugar alcohols and sweetener blends instead. These sweeteners are considered to be sugar free because they don’t cause blood sugar levels to spike when consumed.
This Keto Chocolate Cookies Recipe
I am a sucker for a good cookie. There is just something so comforting about a soft chewy cookie with a glass of milk. Ever since I started my Keto diet, I have not been satisfied with the cookie recipes that I have tried. So, with a little bit of trial and error (ok, there were many, many errors!) I finally nailed it!
From now on this is my go to Keto chocolate cookie recipe and I am making it super easy on you to look no further…You have to try them! These Keto cookies are made with almond flour, are soft, chewy, and oh sooo chocolatey – definitely not cakey at all. To top it all off, it’s under 2g of carbs per cookie. I know this is jaw-dropping goodness.
Since these chocolate cookies are so low in carbs, it gives you some wiggle room to experiment by adding some chopped nuts, or any other Keto friendly toppings you might be craving.
Hope you enjoy!
I use this Kitchenaid Stand mixer all of the time. It definitely helps make preparing the dough much faster and easier.
I use this non-stick bakeware set by Circulon. I bake my cookies on these and even chicken and it never sticks!
