Mini Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies


Print Friendly and PDF

Mmm...mini, chewy keto chocolate chip cookies. I started experimenting with this recipe a while back but perfected it upon my recent trip to St. Louis. And let me tell you, this plate disappeared before my eyes. My dad (who also follows a keto lifestyle) certainly made a quick dent, but my brother-in-law loved them too - and he normally doesn't eat anything keto! 

They look a tad well done, but it's a bit deceiving since it's actually the allulose giving them that color. If you don't want them looking so browned, gently placing a sheet of foil over them a few minutes after popping them into the oven should do the trick. 

My trip went way too quick - I intended to try several variations of the cookies - such as salted caramel ones - and now that I'm back in California alone it's way too risky to make a batch. 😜 


Ingredients:

4 tbsp salted butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp salt
1.5 cups almond flour
1 large egg
1 tbsp solid coconut oil 
1 tbsp cocoa butter
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
2/3 cup Lily's chocolate chips

Instructions:

1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

2) Cream together softened butter and sweeteners in a large bowl.

3) Add in vanilla, salt, almond flour, egg, coconut oil, cocoa butter and baking powder. Stir well.

4) Mix in chocolate chips evenly.

5) Line a cookie sheet with parchment and place flattened cookie dough balls on the parchment. (They won't spread much, so they should be roughly the shape you want your final cookie.)

6) Bake for about 11 minutes or until done. (Note: allulose causes them to brown more quickly. You can prevent them from getting too dark if you want by gently placing a sheet of foil over the cookies a few minutes after putting them in the oven. I don't mind a dark cookie so I didn't do this.)

7) Remove from oven and allow cookies to fully cool. (They solidify a lot as they cool).

8) Enjoy!
