MAN. These chewy keto chocolate chip cookies are GOOD.

I originally made keto chocolate chip cookies a few years back (you can find the recipe here) and those were GREAT.

But that recipe was more of a crispier cookie that spread more..

I hadn't quite got the texture right yet and was still playing around with the type and ratio of low-carb flour I used.

BUT THESE ONES. I feel like I have finally opened the gates to chocolate heaven.

*UPDATE*

If you like these cookies, I highly suggest checking out these posts where I took a dive into the science behind the perfect keto chocolate-chip cookie and experimented to find the best ones!

These chewy keto chocolate chip cookies came out SO chewy, soft, buttery and NOT CRUMBLY.

This was a total win in my books. A coworker even said “If you left these on a plate with a cup of tea, I could easily devour 10 of them!”

Also, these chewy keto chocolate chip cookies have a lovely story to go along with them..

As I was baking these cookies, just chilling in my PJs,  our apartment building fire alarm went off..and of course, me baking, I thought I set it off somehow so I start panicking and run downstairs. lol..

Turns out, there was an actual fire going on in the floor above us.

Everyone was running down the stairs carrying their pets, saying the smelt or saw smoke.

Five fire trucks showed up.

I live with 2 cats myself (my roommate's cats) so I ran back upstairs like an insane person,  flipping coaches and beds until I could find them (they were scared by the alarm).

Thankfully a very nice guy came to help me and we were able to get them in their carrier and bring them down.

After waiting near the door for a while we were told the fire was out and we could return to our apartments.

So with my heart still pounding out of my chest..

..and still in my pyjamas, we went back up the stairs, let the traumatized cats back out.

And after calling some family members, I went back to baking these cookies, which thankfully I had not put in the oven just yet.

Needless to say,  this may be my most memorable recipe due to the events associated with the baking.

But they are also pretty memorable just for how stinkin' fantatic they turned out. LOL

So without further ado, here is the stinkin' fantastic chewy keto chocolate chip cookies recipe I've been raving about.

I hope you make your own (less heart-racing) memories with these keto cookies. 🙂

Ingredients In Chew Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.

Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour 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.

Vital Wheat Gluten – If you have questions about why I include this ingredient, I wrote an entire article on what it is and why I use Vital Wheat Gluten on my keto diet!

I also included where to buy it, how many carbs it contains..and how to use it in baking.

Tools I Used To Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site.

You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!

Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend.

This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer – My best friend when making these in large batches!!

It's seriously been my favourite kitchen tool (besides my scale of course) for all kinds of recipes but especially cookies, frosting and low carb breads.

  1. Made these for the family today, husband ate 5 i had 2 and son had 3. We got 18 out of the batch and had to cook for 15 mins. I think doubling the choc chips woukd have been my preference but no one else agreed. I am wondering though, mine turned out more of a cake like cookie and I was really hoping for that ooey gooey chewy type of cookie. I looked at your other keto friendly choc chip cookie recipe and it uses vitafiber. Im wondering if that would produce the type of cookie im looking for? Or maybe an extra egg yolk?

  2. Just curious why 2 different sweeteners (Splenda/Truvia)? Can I just use swerve or monkfruit?
    Thanks!

    1. I used to use that combo but now I just use a powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener so yes totally fine to sub! 🙂

  3. I just made these cookies but I used
    swerve to sweeten them and they were awesome! Great recipe!!

    1. No problem! Yes, they do! You can keep them on the counter for 7-10 days (if you bake them slightly longe they will keep longer, the softer they are, the faster they go bad) and they freeze well too! We eat ours even months later.
