This easy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe brings almond flour, erythritol, butter, egg, vanilla and a few more healthy ingredients to the bowl to create a fabulously crispy on the outside chewy on the inside low carb cookie that’s gluten-free, low carb, paleo and – most importantly – loved by fans of keto desserts and kids!  Make these ahead and freeze or make them now because – it’s cookie time:) 




  • Preheat Oven to 350
  • Line a cookie sheet or baking tray with parchment paper 
  • Cream butter & erythritol (or your fave sweetener)with a hand or stand mixer on low – about 5 minutes then add egg and vanilla 
  • Add ½ cup of almond flour – blend – then add more – repeat (until all 1.5 cups almond flour is mixed in) Dumping it in all at once makes it harder to combine. 
  • Next, add in baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum and mix for another minute – make sure you take a moment to scrape the sides of the bowl so that no ingredient is left behind! 
  • Finally, fold in sugar-free chocolate chips 
  • Use a mini cookie scoop or a tablespoon to divide the dough into 15 cookies on a cookie sheet or baking tray lined with parchment paper
  • Use a spoon or your hand to flatten each cookie 
  • Bake 10 – 12 Minutes 
  • They may appear a bit doughy after 12 minutes. Resist the temptation to add more oven time – almond flour cookies crisp as they cool! 
  • Cool before serving 
  • Store at room temp for 3-5 days or in the fridge for up to ten 



To Freeze Baked Cookies: Cool completely, then store in an airtight container or freezer-safe bag- separate each cookie with a sheet of wax paper so they won’t stick together. 

Freezing Dough – Scoop out the dough as if you were baking, then Put the pan of raw cookie dough into the freezer. Once frozen, place the cookie dough balls in a zip lock freezer bag with the name of recipe, baking temp & heating instructions – you may need to add a minute or two to the baking time since you’re working with frozen dough. 

*For crispier cookies leave out the xanthan gum 

For Paleo, use grass-fed butter, ghee or coconut oil 

Paleo-friendly Chocolate Chips 

Use Organic Coconut Sugar 

Use guar gum instead of xanthan gum
