Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield 21 Cookies
- 1 cup smooth almond butter
- ¼ cup golden monkfruit sweetener
- 1 pasture-raised egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon pink salt
- 2 dropperfuls vanilla-flavored liquid stevia
- 3 dropperfuls liquid stevia
- ¼ cup sugar-free chocolate chips
- ¼ cup chopped raw organic walnuts
(You will need a piece of parchment paper to go on your cookie sheet.)
Step #1: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step #2: Place all the ingredients except the chocolate chips and walnuts in a mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix into a smooth dough.
Step #3: Add the chocolate chips and walnuts to the dough, and mix with a spoon.
Step #4: Place 1 heaping tablespoon of dough on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat, spacing the cookies about ½ inch apart, until all the dough has been used. You should get about 21 cookies. Using your hands, flatten each cookie into a round shape.
Step #5: Bake for 10 minutes. To check for doneness, gently insert a fork or toothpick into one cookie; if it comes out clean, they are ready. If not, return to the oven for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool on the baking sheet for 20 minutes.
Step #6: Using a spatula, transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. The cookies will harden and become less crumbly as they cool.
Step #7: Serve or store in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Dr Jockers Comments
Chocolate chip cookies were always one of my wife’s and my favorite foods growing up. This recipe makes THE BEST low-carb, keto chocolate chip cookies on the planet! Angel experimented for a while until she perfected the flavor and texture. Even better, this recipe helps balance your blood sugar, reduce inflammation, and burn fat for fuel more effectively!
We used healthy fat sources from almond butter and walnuts. Our favorite ketogenic sweeteners are stevia and monk fruit, which have no impact on our blood sugar but provide a great flavor. Sweet Leaf liquid stevia is what we use most often in our home. Where it says “squeezes” in the instructions it means a full dropper squeeze. If you want these cookies less sweet, you can use less stevia.
If you are trying to avoid sweet flavors then you really don’t even need a sweetener, as the texture of these cookies alone is absolutely incredible. Plus, the healthy fats will help you feel satiated quickly! Let us know your experience with this recipe in the comments below.
