In my house, Chocolate Chip cookies are a BIG deal.  We like them buttery, a bit chewy, and often.  When I figured out that I could put together a pretty simple KETO chocolate chip cookie recipe, it was a GAME CHANGER. 

Plus, the cookie dough is super tasty too!

When I figured out that I could put together a pretty simple KETO chocolate chip cookie recipe, it was a GAME CHANGER.

I love all types of cookies but chocolate chip is definitely my favorite. 

Oh, and, I like my cookies homemade!  No store-bought Keebler Chips Ahoy for this guy.  Not a chance.

But when I started Keto, my cookie cravings went through the roof.  We’re talking about literal cookie dreams where I would wake up thinking I had just devoured an entire package of Oreo’s.

Yes, I’m a sugar addict.  I’m working on that!

I needed to come up with a recipe to stop my cookie cravings in their tracks, and these easy keto chocolate chip butter cookies definitely did the trick.

Sure, they’re a little bit different than your original chocolate chip cookies, but they are uniquely delicious in their own right.

Ingredients In Our Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Easy Keto Chocolate Chip Butter Cookies Ingredients
The secret to this simple cookie recipe is using both kinds of Swerve!

Our keto chocolate chip cookie recipe does not require too many crazy ingredients.  I’m betting you have most of them in your pantry already.

We marry familiar chocolate chip cookie ingredients like butter, vanilla, baking powder, and an egg with some of our favorite keto staples – Swerve, almond flour, and Lily’s Chocolate chips.

The secret to making this a great cookie recipe is the use of two types of Swerve sweetener.  We use both Swerve Confectioners and Swerve Brown.  Together, this delicious combo yields a great cookie!

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

If you're not freaked out by the raw egg, you definitely should taste the dough here. It's a great keto chocolate chip cookie dough.

These cookies really are super simple to make.

We begin by mixing together the butter, both kinds of Swerve, the egg, and our vanilla extract until smooth.

Next, we mix in the almond flour and the baking powder,

Finally, we stir in the chocolate chips.

NOTE: For me, less is more on the chocolate chips, and I prefer fewer chocolate chips in my keto chocolate chip cookies (about 2 tablespoons).  But, if it’s to your liking, add in up to 4 tablespoons without raising the carb count.

Shape The Keto Cookie Dough Balls

Easy Keto Chocolate Chip Butter Cookie Dough Balls
You should end up with about 16 1-inch keto cookie dough balls.

Begin by using a cookie scoop (or hand roll) to make 16 one-inch cookie dough balls.

Place the dough balls on a silicone baking mat, parchment-lined, or greased cookie sheet and bake for 5 minutes.

After baking for 5 minutes, press each cookie gently with a fork in a crosshatch pattern.

After 5 minutes in the oven, remove the cookie sheet.  

Press each cookie gently with a fork.  Rotate 90 degrees and press with a fork again to form a crosshatch pattern.

Place the cookie sheet back in the oven and continue baking for an additional 18-20 minutes.

Once the cookies are finished baking, transfer them to a wire rack and allow to cool completely before eating.

While these cookies are quick and simple to make, you definitely want to let them cool completely before enjoying.

  1. So does it matter if butter is salted or not?
    Also, wondering if coconut sugar may work ( more carbs I know)
    Thanks!

    1. I always use salted butter. I love the salty sweet taste it produces in these cookies. I would not use coconut sugar for these if you are trying to follow a low carb/keto diet. That said, I’m sure they would taste good.

      1. My dough came oit crumbled. I used an extra egg and it didn’t matter, added a lil water still crumbled. I used Red MIll Almond Flour. Any idea why?
        Thanks!

  2. I thought I had brown sugar swerve but do not. Can I use the regular swerve sugar replacement in lieu? Thank you!

    1. Yes, you can. We’ve tried it both ways (with and without the brown sugar Swerve) and both worked. Bottom line, if you have the brown sugar Swerve, use it. If you don’t have it, don’t let that stop you from having cookies!

  3. 5 stars
    Followed your recipe exactly. Only added about 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts to the batter. They baked up perfectly! I am going to keep this as my go-to chocolate chip recipe from now on. Just baked them and they do need to cool completely and they are so yummy, made 19 delicious cookies!

    1. I didn’t have any “brown sugar” so just used more confectioners and then added brown sugar extract. Turned out yummy. Great recipe, thanks!

  4. Accidentally made without the egg as it wasn’t mentioned on the photo. Still came out edible but will try with the egg next time.

  5. Hie
    Looks very good but I am living in Switzerland where do I get the similar ingredients ? Like the sugar for instance
    Thx a lot

  6. I just finished baking these. They are a little dry and crumbly. Is that the way they are supposed to turn out? This is my first Keto recipe I’ve tried.

  7. Just made these and sooooo good!! I didn’t have powdered sugar so I just use brown sugar to replace the powdered, I do this with my regular chocolate cookies also and it works great. Super soft, chewy cookies! Thank you!!

  8. Thanks for your reply Scott. I just want to confirm, the baking temperature is 300 F? Seems low for baking but I haven’t done much keto baking yet.

  9. 5 stars
    Made the cookies today just as you instructed, with the Lakanto equivalents, and they are excellent! I love these cookies! Thank you for a great recipe.

  10. 5 stars
    I made these and they are delicious but mines spreader thin and into each other. They are still so soft and delicious. Can you tell me what I did wrong?

  11. This cookie recipe is very good. I’m a new comer to keto and almond flour is a bit gritty for me, but this cookie is the best so far that I have made.

  12. These are so good! I had so many left over I actually put some in freezer so that they won’t get bad! Now I can have one whenever! Thank you for this recipe!!
