Chewy Walnut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Print Friendly and PDF

Welcome to my first walnut flour recipe! I'll be honest, I've shied away from walnut flour for quite a while because walnuts aren't my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I like walnuts (I am such an all-around nut lover!), but as far as nuts go, they're at the bottom of my list, mainly due to the aftertaste and the occasional bitter walnut (I bet you know what I'm talking about...). Anyway, the softness of a fresh walnut I had in a salad the other day got me wondering...what would they do to a cookie's texture? So, of course I had to find out. The good news is they turned out extra chewy, and I like them much better than almond flour-based or coconut-flour based cookies. I may be using walnut flour for cookies from here on out!


8 tbsp softened salted butter
1/2 cup granulated Swerve
1/4 cup golden Lakanto
1 tsp monk fruit juice concentrate
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup walnut flour (or make it yourself from ~1.5 cup raw walnuts)
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup Lily's chocolate chips


1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Cream together softened butter and sweeteners.

3) Add in vanilla and egg. Stir well.

4) Add in the walnut flour, almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Stir well.

5) Mix in the chocolate chips evenly.

6) Roll cookie dough into small balls that are very slightly flattened. These cookies do spread quite a bit on their own. Mine made 24 small-to-average sized cookies.

7) Bake for around 12-15 minutes until golden.

8) Allow to fully cool before eating or moving cookies... they solidify a lot as they cool.

9) Enjoy!

Nutrition Facts:


  1. I saw the numbers - carbs, sugars, etc, but how many cookies are in 1 serving?

    1. 1 cookie per serving :) Mine made 24 cookies.

  2. What can I sub for the concentrate? These look yummy!

    1. You can leave it out actually. I just prefer the taste of the sweeteners combined :)

  3. I made these today. Didn't have almond flour so I added a tablespoon more of coconut flour. And I didn't have milk so I added half and half. These cookies were so super yummy! Thank you for sharing!!

  4. These are absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

    1. I'm so glad you like them! Thanks for taking the time to share :)

  5. Tried these today and they are so good. The best cookies I've done by far while on Keto. Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! So glad you liked them! :)

  6. What is the best way to store these?

    1. Typically if I just keep however many I plan to eat within 3 days of making at room temp in a plastic bag or air tight container and then I freeze the rest. They last a really long time frozen - at least 6 months. You can technically keep them in the fridge for a couple weeks after making, but I prefer to freeze to preserve the freshness (they dry out a bit in the fridge).

  7. Can this be made without swerve, Lankanto to and monk fruit juice? Are they super substitutes? Are there substitutes that I’d find in my ordinary supermarket?
