Brown Butter

  • 1/2 cup salted butter 112g
  • 1 ice cube




  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over low-medium heat. Add the butter and stir as it melts.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the sukrin gold sweetener and stir as it dissolves.
  • Continue to stir constantly for ~7 minutes then remove the it from the heat and keep stirring for ~30s more to prevent it from burning.
  • Add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and stir once more. Pour the mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet and allow it to set in the fridge while you complete the next steps.

Browned Butter

  • Again, using a non-stick frying pan, add 1/2 cup salted butter and heat over low-medium heat stirring often until melted.
  • Continue to stir the butter until it turns brown then quickly remove it from the heat while still stirring. (This usually takes about 5-6 minutes for me after the butter has initially melted. The butter will start to get frothy and soon it will bubble so much you can't really see the bottom of the pan - this is right before it will turn brown, then after that you only want to stir for a few seconds more before removing it).
  • Add an ice cube to the browned butter and give it a few stirs until it's melted and blended in.
  • Pour the butter into a large mixing bowl and set aside at room temperature to cool down a bit.

Making The Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • To another bowl, add the almond flour, lupin flour, vital wheat gluten, baking soda, espresso powder, xanthan gum and salt. Whisk to combine then set aside.
  • To your now slightly cooled browned butter, add the sweeteners; sukrin gold, powdered monkfruit and allulose along with the egg (and egg yolk if adding it), vanilla extract and molasses.
  • Whisk well until the mixture is very smooth.
  • Add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until everything is combined.
  • Add the chopped chocolate.
  • Break your toffee from earlier into small pieces then add it as well.
  • Stir everything one more time until combined.
  • Cover your dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate 24 hours.
  • After 24 hours, pre-heat your oven to 330*F.
  • Line a cookie tray with parchment paper and scoop balls of cookie dough onto the sheet. (If you're baking these straight from the fridge, you'll want to use your hand to flatten them just a bit to help them spread properly. If you let them come back to room temperature, you should be able to just scoop balls of dough and bake them as they are). *Tip - If they aren't flattening as much as you'd like as they bake, just take a spatula or spoon and give them a little press in the oven.
  • Bake the cookies for ~10-13 minutes (these will take more towards 13min or longer if baking directly from the fridge). They WILL set more at room temperature so be careful not to over-cook them. You can also toss them in the freezer quickly after baking to cool them faster.  *Tip - For thinner cookies, let your dough come back fully to room temperature before baking and flatten the balls of dough just a tiny bit before baking. For thicker cookies, bake straight from the fridge and again just flatten slightly.
  • Let the cookies cool for at LEAST 12-15 minutes before trying to remove them from the baking sheet (if you're impatient they are still delicious but a bit messy when first out of the oven). Enjoy your Keto 24 Hour Chocolate Chip Cookies!



Ingredients In Keto 24 Hour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Salted Butter - I always use salted butter but you can just as easily use unsalted. Just be sure to add an 1/8th tsp salt to the toffee an extra 1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt (total) to the cookies. 
  • Sukring Gold Sweetener - This is my favourite keto brown sugar alternative. I wouldn't reccomend subbing it if you really want that true chocolate chip cookie flavour. It also works great in the toffee where-as some sweeteners will prevent the toffee from fully setting. You can try swerve brown as a substitute.
  • Vanilla Extract - I used pure vanilla extract for this recipe but artificial will do as well.
  • Ice Cube - This seems like an odd ingredient but it's actually very important as it replaces the lost moisture in our browned butter so our cookies can come out soft and chewy.
  • Almond Flour - This acts as the base for our cookies with some help from other low-carb flours to improve the overall texture. Almond flour alone would be grainy.
  • Lupin Flour - This keeps our cookies soft in the center! It's a really cool ingredient if you haven't looked into it yet.
  • Vital Wheat Gluten - This is the protein extracted from wheat. It gives our dough a texture more similar to regular cookie dough and provides that "chew" that we all know and love.
  • Baking Soda - This helps our cookies to spread out a bit and get slightly crisp on the edges.
  • Espresso Powder - This is purely there for flavour. I've made recipes with and without it and I can say, even if you aren't a huge coffee fan, this is a great way to enhance flavours in a recipe.
  • Xanthan Gum - This acts similarly to the gluten to provide a chewy texture to the cookies.
  • Salt - Add a little more if using unsalted butter.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Sweetener - This is my favourite replacement for white sugar in keto baking. The powdered has the best flavour and blends seamlessly into baked goods.
  • Allulose - Yes, another sweetener! These aren't your average 1 hour keto chocolate chip cookies. Allulose is a great sweetener for not only adding a light sweetness..but also improving the texture of your baked goods. It provides almost a "stickiness" which again, adds chew but it also helps the cookies to brown as well.
  • Sea Salt - This is an optional topping for your cookies. It pairs well with the dark chocolate and sweet toffee. 
  • Egg - This gives our cookie structure.
  • Egg Yolk - This is optional, I find an extra egg yolk can make for even chewier cookies.
  • Molasses - Another optional ingredient...I know, I know "it's not keto". But in reality, the amount in this recipe IS keto because it's so minimal. 1/4 tsp divided by 16 cookies is not ever going to knock you out of ketosis and it only enhances the brown sugar flavour from the sukrin sweetener.
  • 70% Dark Chocolate - You are welcome to use any chocolate you prefer but 70-75% is ideal as the toffee is sweet, you need the little bit of bitterness to balance the cookies out.

Tips For Making Keto 24 Hour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • For the best result, you all the ingredients mentioned in this recipe and try not to sub any. This is the kind of recipe you make to impress friends or family...or simply to treat yourself.
  • Be careful not to burn the toffee, it will burn FAST if you stop stirring even for a second. It may not look burnt but the taste will carry over to your cookies later so be sure to test a little piece ahead of time if you are unsure.
  • For a caramel swirl rather than toffee, use 2 tbsp allulose in your toffee along with 3 tbsp sukrin gold. It won't fully harden and you can swirl pieces of caramel into your cookie rather than add chunks of toffee.
  • Be careful when baking these cookies as the bottoms will want to burn before the middles have cooked. To prevent this, always bake these on parchment paper on a light coloured baking sheet further away from the lower heating element.
  • The cookies won't always look done but these firm up quite a bit at room temperature. You can even toss them in the freezer to speed up the process (I actually enjoy them partially frozen right after baking as they retain their chewiness and get even chewier when cold).
  • You can technically bake these cookies off right away, but if you're taking the time to make this recipe, I suggest letting them sit in the fridge for 24 hours to achieve the best possible flavour. I've also tested them beyond 24 hours and they start to get too soft after baking and aren't nearly as good.

How To Store Keto 24 Hour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Once cooled, store these cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • OR freeze in an airtight container layered with parchment/wax paper.
