Keto “Oatmeal” Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keto “Oatmeal” Chocolate Chip Cookies

Keto Oatmeal Cookies

Keto Oatmeal Cookies… Yes, you're oatmeal cookie cravings have finally been solved!

First-off, before I'm hounded for calling these Keto “Oatmeal” Chocolate Chip Cookies..

Let me reassure you that these don't actually contain any oats or oat flour. These are completely oat-free!

Some people may call these “Faux-tmeal cookies” or a “N'oatmeal” recipe. 

Whichever you'd like to call them is fine with me!

Either way, this easy grain free cookie recipe came out FANTASTIC. I'm not lying when I say I like these keto oatmeal cookies BETTER than my well known, original, “Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies” and even my more recent “Best Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies“. 

That's not to say I don't like the other cookie recipes but just the crunch, and the different textures in these keto oatmeal cookies make them some of the best keto cookies I've made.

I can promise you, you will never miss the oatmeal in these cookies. I love oatmeal as much as the next person but the different flavours and textures that the flax meal, psyllium, hemp seeds and walnuts provide is a whole new experience on it's own. 

Not going to lie though, I do wish I could pile in a load on raisins as well since I am one of those classic oatmeal raisin cookie lover's. But I digress. 

Thankfully there is a keto-friendly option. You can try using sugar free dried cranberries or even just unsweetened dried cranberries instead.

I've used them in past Christmas cookie recipes and although they are a bit more tart, they still provide that delicious chew and sweetness that oatmeal raisin cookies typically provide.

Ingredients In Keto Oatmeal Cookies Without Oats

  • Almond Flour – A grain free flour alternative with the closest taste to white flour when baked. 
  • Coconut Flour – Another grain free flour that is great for thickening cookie, muffin and cake recipes and providing a better texture than almond flour alone.
  • Hemp Seeds (or coconut flakes or unsweetened shredded coconut) – A fantastic oatmeal replacement. Instead of adding oats we use these ingredients to achieve a similar texture and classic oatmeal taste!
  • Flax Meal – Again, helps to provide the “oats” or “oatmeal” texture in our low carb oatmeal cookie recipe.
  • Ground Psyllium Husks (Optional) – Gives a chewiness to the cookies. This is also known as “Psyllium Husk Powder”.
  • Xanthan Gum (Optional) – Very popular in many keto cookie, cake, muffin, bread and brownie recipes. It's ideal for preventing crumbly desserts and helps the dough to thicken and bake more similar to the dough of traditional white flour desserts.
  • Stevia Sweetened Chocolate Chips – I have always used the Krisda brand (located in Canada) but you are welcome to use Lily's Chocolate Chips, ChocZero Chocolate Chips or a 70-90% dark chocolate bar instead. 
  • Walnuts or Pecans (Optional) – These aren't necessary but add a nice crunch and extra texture to the cookies!
  • Butter – If using unsalted, just be sure to add 1/2 tsp salt rather than the 1/4 tsp called for. 
  • Eggs – Room temperature is best as it keeps the butter soft. You can easily bring them to room temperature by placing them in a warm bowl of water while you prepare the rest of the cookie recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract – Pure vanilla extract is what I use but artificial works just fine as well!
  • Baking Soda – Helps the cookies to spread and gives a nicer texture to the tops of the cookies. 
  • Salt – Use 1/4 tsp if using salted butter, 1/2 tsp if using unsalted butter!

Keto Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Tips

  • These oatmeal cookies are very versatile. If you'd like, you can also sub some unsweetened shredded coconut or coconut flakes for some or all of the hemp seeds. You can also add slivered or sliced almonds, sugar free dried cranberries, dark chocolate chunks or whichever low carb mix-ins your heart desires!
  • These keto cookies firm up quite a bit at room temperature so be sure to under-bake them slightly if you want them to remain chewy and soft in the centre. See the directions for a better description of what the cookies should look like after baking. 
  • See the sections below for more advice on baking these cookies with either almond flour or coconut flour alone and other substitutions.

Coconut Flour Oatmeal Cookies

If you don't have almond flour or are allergic, you can make these keto cookies with 1/2 cup, 56g total coconut flour instead. Add an extra 2 tbsp, 30g of butter to the recipe as well. 

Almond Flour Oatmeal Cookies

If you don't have coconut flour or are allergic, you can make these keto cookies with 1 3/4, 196g cups total almond flour instead. 

Can I still make these cookies if I don't have xanthan gum?

Yes! You can still make this low carb cookie recipe without xanthan gum. The cookies may just be a tad more crumbly. If you have either of the following on hand, you can use it as substitute (only choose 1):

Do I need the two sweeteners to make these oatmeal cookies?

No, you can easily just use one sweetener for the entire cookie recipe. I suggest two because the sukrin brown sweetener adds a really nice deeper brown sugar flavour that you don't get with the monkfruit sweetener alone.

BUT you can also add 1/2 tsp molasses to your recipe and use regular sweetener to achieve a similar flavour with virtually no added carbs to each cookie.
