Chewy Chocolate Chip Keto Cookies (Paleo, Dairy Free, Egg Free Option)
My Addiction… CHEWY COOKIES
These Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies are the bees knees. It took a few tries, but I tell ya, they’re the best.
THE BEST KETO COOKIES, EVER.
Chocolate chip cookies. I just love them. I will always choose them as the dessert if they are a choice. Crispy, soft, melt in your mouth or chewy. They’re just so good. But alas, once I went grain free it was difficult to find a satisfying recipe.
I’ve Been Trying For Years
I got close with my Giant Low Carb Cookies… Have you seen that recipe? It’s really good. Really close to perfect. The look, the flavor are spot on. The texture is actually best the next day. I’m realistic, I’m honest. I know the perfect cookie is hard to come by. So when I tell you that THIS IS IT. I am not fucking around. These gluten free, sugar free, low carb chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of anyone who makes them. 3 NET CARBS PER KETO COOKIE.
CHEWY BECAUSE OF THE ADDED GELATIN. SUPER CHOCOLATEY. Yup. The PERFECT KETO COOKIE.
For real, chewy.
Chocolately. Absolutely delicious. These are one of the most popular recipes on the blog, second to the Avocado Brownies. These are the cookies people make and then find themselves making them weekly.
Everyone, even non-paleo boyfriends and spouses… mine included… LOVE these.

EGG FREE? HERE’S HOW:
Mix one tablespoon of flaxseed meal with one tablespoon of water and let it sit to get thick and gelatinous, about 15 minutes. Use that as your egg. The adorable Sadie from Goodies Against The Grain made them like this and they turned out beautifully! I will test this my self soon! Thank you Sadie!
*Over summer vacation, while visiting my sister I made a nut free version of these. Since I created this recipe I have omitted nuts from my diet. That recipe will be public soon enough! Believe it’s JUST as good as this one!*
- 1 large egg
- 3 tbsp melted ghee (coconut oil or softened butter)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
- 2 cups fine ground almond meal (from blanched almonds)
- 1 tbsp pastured gelatin (for chewy factor, but ytou can omit or use peptides for protein)
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp flake salt (if using fine salt only use 1/4 tsp)
- 1/3 cup milk (I use cashew milk, or coconut milk)
- 1 cup chopped chocolate chunks or chips (I use Lily's)
- Pre heat oven to 325F convection (or 350F bake).
- In a medium bowl, whisk egg until frothy.
- Keep whisking as you add in the oil, vanilla and sweetener.
- Mix well.
- Add in the almond meal, baking soda, salt and gelatin.
- Whisk to combine the dry ingredients.
- Then combine the wet and dry ingredietnts with a spatula until the dough is crumbly.
- Add in the milk, mix well until the dough comes together again.
- Once the dough is moist, chop the chocolate into small pieces and fold it in.
- Shape 1 inch balls with the dough, place them 2 inches apart on a sheet pan liked with parchment paper.
- Gently flatten the cookies with the palm of your hand or the back of a spoon.
- Bake 15 minutes or until the base of the cookies turn golden brown.
- Remove from oven, let cool for ten minutes.
- Makes about 20 cookies.
- The gelatin is there to make them chewy once the cookies cool down. You can use peptides if you want a protein boost or you can omit them all together, the recipe is still bombdotcom.
