1. Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here’s a challenge: Make a batch of traditional chocolate chip cookies. Then, plate them with these keto chocolate chip cookies.

I’ll bet money you won’t be able to tell the difference!

The recipe relies on coconut flour, coconut oil, erythritol (a sugar substitute), xanthan gum, and sugar-free chocolate chips.

The result? Chewy, soft, chocolate chip cookies!

3. Peanut Blossoms

Peanut blossoms are a traditional peanut butter cookie centered with a Hershey’s Kiss.

This recipe replaces the peanut butter cookie ingredients with keto-friendly ones.

You’ll make your own “kisses” by melting sugar-free dark chocolate and butter and dolloping your chocolate in the center.

4. Keto Almond Joy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Are you a fan of Almond Joys? If so, these keto cookies are the ones for you! They have a distinctly Almond Joy-like flavor.

(With almond flour, almond slices, coconut, and no sugar chocolate chips, it’d be hard for them NOT TO!)

Plus, they’re ridiculously easy to make. Go ahead and make a double batch and freeze some for later.

5. Keto Low Carb Sugar Cookies

Everyone knows the holidays are full of sugary sweets. Give Santa a hand in fitting down the chimney this year with keto sugar cookies to decorate.

These are holiday party-friendly. Nobody will know they’re gluten- and sugar-free.

Take care not to over-bake them. Then, decorate them with your favorite icing and sprinkles.

Edible cookie dough is one of those treats everyone enjoys. Maybe it’s the nostalgia of enjoying cookie dough off the beaters.

Or perhaps it’s just because it tastes so good with ice cream.

Either way, with this recipe, you can count on enjoying lovely low-carb cookie dough by the spoonful.

7. Coconut Flour Shortbread Cookies

Three ingredients to throw together crunchy shortbread cookies? Count me in.

The only flaw I found in this recipe is it doesn’t come with the classic blue tin we all know and love.

The cookies are superb and delicious when dipped in coffee or tea.

Net carbs per serving: 1.5g

8. Low-Carb Almond Cinnamon Butter Cookies

Despite the title, these are like lovely keto-friendly snickerdoodle-style cookies.

Take the traditional shaping of peanut butter cookies and roll them in granular sweetener and cinnamon. You’ll see exactly what I mean.

If you’re looking for the flavor profiles the title promises, try replacing the butter with sugar-free almond butter at a 1:1 ratio.

Net carbs per serving: 10.4g

9. Low Carb Chocolate Cookies

Dieting doesn’t mean you have to go without the treats you love, like chocolate chip cookies.

In this recipe, you’ll create rich, chewy, deceivingly delicious cookies.

Shape them round like the recipe shows, or flatten them to make traditional cookie shapes! Trust me, both ways are awesome!

10. Keto Salted Caramel Sugar Cookies

If you try any recipe from this list, please do yourself a favor and make these cookies. Creating the no sugar caramel sauce is the center of this recipe.

You’ll make sugar-free sugar cookies first, then top them with the sugar-free caramel sauce you made.

Pro tip: Sprinkle some coarse salt on top for textural and flavor contrast.

11. The Best Keto Coconut Flour Cookies

If you’re on a keto or low-carb diet, add this recipe to your repertoire. No, seriously, bookmark it NOW. You’ll want to come back to it repeatedly.

It’s a simple recipe in which you’ll whip together the basics. Also, make them your own with a keto-friendly, low-carb, high-protein mix-in.

Chopped nuts, coconut flakes, or sugar-free chocolate all work.

12. Keto Vanilla Cinnamon Cookies

These cookies are best compared to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, minus the oatmeal.

Ensure you chill the cookie dough before baking. Doing so allows the almond flour in the dough to absorb some moisture and results in chewy, flavorful cookies.

Net carbs per serving: 2.7g

13. Keto Lime Cookies

Looking for keto cookie recipes for summer? Look no further! The tartness of the lime zest and extract in these cookies will blow you away!

The cookies’ base features coconut flour and cream cheese, resulting in extra soft, chewy cookies.

Plus, they’re best served cool, making them even more refreshing for summer. They freeze well, too!

These green-hued cookies may look a little gooky, but they’re actually delicious. And you can’t beat them for convenience.

You can whip up an entire batch with only five ingredients. You’ll need whichever of the sugar substitutes you like best.

You’ll also need cream cheese, almond flour, butter, and matcha powder. That’s all it takes for soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookies everyone will love.

15. Keto Pumpkin Cookies

Fall is the ultimate season because of all the pumpkin dessert recipes.

And the good news is that keto dieters no longer have to miss out on the pumpkin spice craze.

Thanks to the creativity of recipe creators, there are plenty of keto foods for fall. These cookies are some of the best.

I like them without the cream cheese frosting, but feel free to try them both ways.

16. Keto Gingerbread Cookies

You won’t want to make traditional gingerbread cookies after trying this recipe! Not only are they soft and delicious, but they don’t spread when baking.

That makes it so easy to make gingerbread house parts or perfectly shaped cookies without stressing about how they might expand.

Talk about holiday Heaven! Do yourself a favor and give these keto-friendly, crunchy, nutty snowballs a try.

Note: you’ll need to freeze the dough before baking, so plan ahead. Make a big batch to keep in your freezer.

The great news is the ingredient list is so short and simple. Also, these are delightful for keto dieters and non-dieting cookie connoisseurs alike.

18. Keto Snickerdoodle Skillet Cookie

This oversized skillet cookie is perfect for keto date night. It’s big enough for two people to enjoy and has all the warm, spicy flavors of snickerdoodles.

I like to serve it best in the fall and winter months. But its readily available ingredients mean you can make it all year.

19. Keto Peppermint Bark Cookies

Don’t let the name of these cookies fool you. They definitely ARE cookies — not broken shards of edible bark.

The “bark” part comes in at the center of each cookie. Each soft chocolate cookie has a dollop of festive, peppermint-infused bark at its center.

They’re colorful, lovely, and taste as good as they look. Perfect for cookie swaps!

20. Keto No-Bake Cookies

Have you had chocolate haystack cookies before? That’s what these are — only in keto-friendly form.

They’re rich and chocolatey, with peanut butter, pecans, and coconut for texture.

Of all the keto cookies on this list, these taste the LEAST like they’d be low carb.

21. Keto Oreos

No list of keto cookie recipes is complete without some homemade keto Oreos. I LOVE Oreos. I love dipping them in milk, pulling them apart to lick the icing, etc.

There are all kinds of fun, tasty, nostalgia-inducing ways to eat an Oreo. And while these don’t have precisely the same texture, their taste is spot-on.

You will love them!

22. Keto Cowboy Cookies

The recipe calls these cowboy cookies, but I prefer to think of them as kitchen sink cookies.

Why?

Because you’ll add everything but the kitchen sink to them! There’s chocolate, coconut, pecans, cinnamon, sea salt, and more!

They’re a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs kind of cookie. Only, thanks to their ZERO net carbs per serving, they won’t actually stick to your ribs.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

  • 3/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt.
