Keto Brownie Cookies

KETO BROWNIE COOKIES.png

These may be ARE the best keto cookie I have made to date (and I've made A LOT). Keto Brownie Cookies take the win!

Chocolatey, rich, fudgey and delicious. The combo of a brownie and a cookie creates perfection.

This don't take long to make and are so worth the process. If you have a nagging chocolate craving, make these cookies now and you won't be disappointed!

The special ingredient that gives these cookies their ultra soft, gooey, chewy texture is Vitafiber Syrup.

This is a low-carb, high fibre substitute, great for replacing corn syrup and maple syrup in recipes. It's also a perfect addition to cookies, no-bake bars and candies.

You can find Vitafiber and many additional delicious recipes including it here:  Vitafiber IMO Website

Tips For Making Keto Brownie Cookies

  • You can use 1 sweetener for the entire recipe, just take into account that truvia is 3x sweeter than regular sugar so you’ll need 3x the amount for a typical sweetener like erythritol or splenda. 
  • You can choose to use unsweetened baker’s chocolate instead of the chocolate-chips mentioned, just be sure to add a bit of extra sweetener to the recipe.

Keto Brownie Cookies Ingredients

  • Almond – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally)  for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Splenda & Truvia – Since I’ve re-made this recipe many times, I’ve switched over to using a monkfruit/erythritol blend instead of splenda and truvia. The reason being.. It’s much more keto-friendly in terms of it’s effect on insulin levels and it probably has the closest taste to real sugar! I highly recommend trying it out. I use this blend from SoNourished.
  • Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the cookies a chewier texture.
  • Blackstrap Molasses – This is optional, it adds a brown sugar flavour to recipes very minimal carbs! I only use 1 tsp and it adds a ton of flavour. I highly recommend it but if you’d like to leave it out you can..OR you can alternatively replace half the sweetener in this recipe with Sukrin Brown Sugar Sweetener.

  1. Holy tastebuds Batman, those look AMAZING! are sugar free chocolate chips something you can find in stores (I haven’t been able to), or an online only type thing? Definitely giving these a try soon!!

    1. Thank you! Hahaha. I’ve actually been lucky enough to find them in my local Canadian Superstore (the krisda) brand in the health section. But otherwise I’d say online is your best bet. I do use unsweetened chocolate though as well If I’m in a pinch! Just melt it down, sweeten it how you like then freeze it to harden it again!

  2. I just found your website and was excited about all of the keto recipes but I’ve never seen where Splenda, molasses or any kind of syrup (unless it’s sugar free Torani) is considered Keto. What am I missing? Thanks.

  3. Is that the cup for cup Splenda? What could I replace that with? I use liquid Splenda but not the stuff with maltodextrin in it.

  4. When do you add the molasses? I don’t see that in the directions. I am going to assume in the beginning with the egg and butter?

  5. I purchase sugar free Lillys baking chocolate chips at HEB grocery stores in the baking isle near the cake mixes. They are sweetened with Stevia.

    1. Awe thank you! You can find vitafiber and xanthan gum on amazon but xanthan gum is often available in grocery stores in the health section or bulk food stores as well!
