But before we get started I feel like we need to run down a few facts about baking or no-baking cookies, cakes, muffins & what have you on a low carb diet.

The 411 On Baking Keto Cookies

Low carb baking is slightly totally different from traditional Betty Crocker baking. All-Purpose Flour & sugar are OUT – almond flour, coconut flour, (sometimes) psyllium husk & sugar substitutes are IN.

Almond Flour – Is super popular & very versatile flour swap that works well in cookies, cakes & bread recipes. Blanched Almond Flour is what you want to use. If you’re shopping in your PJ’s – Anthony’s Blanched is a good one & it’s available on Amazon:)

Coconut Flour – Coconut Flour also works well in keto baking recipes like muffins & cookies. And of course, if you have a nut allergy coconut flour is the obvious way to go. It’s also a little cheaper than almond flour, but many people find it a challenge to work with because it soaks up liquid like a sponge. I’m not here to weigh-in on the almond flour vs. coconut flour debate – I like both – & if you’re looking for a good coconut flour – I recommend this one – also available on Amazon:)

Sugar Swaps

Erythritol – Erythritol has zero effect on blood sugar & it’s easy on the stomach. It’s probably the best for baking keto cookies – especially crispy ones. Be warned it does take a few hours so your cookies may be crispier the next day. Here’s a good powdered version & here’s a good granular sugar sub.

Swerve – Swerve is another popular choice for baking. It is a combination of erythritol and oligosaccharides (plus a few natural flavors). With no calories and zero impact on blood sugar levels, Swerve is a fabulous choice for baking keto cookies. *Here is a bakers bundle I found on Amazon with both the granular version & the confectioners version for less than $15:)

Monk Fruit – You’ll also see Monk Fruit listed as a common ingredient – Monk Fruit is an all natural sugar swap (as well as an antioxidant) But be warned: it can be up to 400X as sweet as sugar! Here’s a good one you can buy now on Amazon

Ok, lesson over. Ready to get to the keto cookies? Thought so!

P.S. I’m trying something new & listing the macros beneath each recipe. I hope it’s helpful to know on the front end:)

P.S.S. Don’t leave before you check out all of the fabulous keto desserts on this site – including my chocolate chip cookie dough fat bombs!:))
