I have invested a lot of time looking for the best keto cookies, and I finally found a recipe that works. After discovering the ketogenic diet, I made it my mission to find snacks and desserts that fit my new lifestyle. That is what has lead me to write about these awesome cookies.

Being on a keto diet is fun, healthy, and satisfying. I definitely enjoy the constant energy and mental performance, appetite control, burning fat and losing weight, controlled blood pressure, and a calmer stomach. According to Diet Doctor, some studies showed that ketogenic diets, also known as low-carb diets, improve vital health markers such as blood sugar levels, cholesterol profile, and insulin levels.

In the first few weeks of starting the keto diet, you might feel extra-guilty when assigning a cheat day for sweets. In my case, I enjoy sweets too much, and I admit I am a giant cookie lover. To stay on my keto diet, I have visited a lot of web pages, dropped by the houses of many of bakers, and spent hours experimenting in the kitchen.

My aching sweet tooth was finally satisfied when I stumbled upon Peace, Love, and Low Carb’s Keto Flourless Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and Low Carb Yum’s Brown Butter Coconut Cookies. Kyndra Holley created the awesome recipes and healthy contents of Peace, Love, and Low Carb. On the other hand, the blogger behind Low Carb Yum is Lisa MarcAurele. Both bloggers are generous enough to share their keto masterpieces online.

Baking keto chocolate chip cookies and brown butter coconut keto cookies is a piece of cake! It should only take you half an hour to serve yourself these keto flourless chewy double chocolate chip cookies. Here are the things you should add to your shopping list if you would like to try Peace, Love, and Low Carb’s Keto Flourless Chewy Double Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • 1 cup of natural creamy almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2/3 cup of confectioner’s erythritol
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder
  • 1 tablespoon of melted salted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar-free dark chocolate baking chips

Let’s start the keto cookie madness with a few super helpful tips from Kyndra Holley. First, using confectioner’s erythritol instead of the granular one takes away any grittiness. It also takes away the cooling effect that may be encountered with erythritol or Swerve. As mentioned earlier, creating these sweet bites only takes about half an hour. A good trick to make the cookie possess a fudgy, brownie-like appearance is to remove them from the oven at the 10-minute mark, and then press each of them lightly to flatten.

Kyndra’s recipe follows simple but effective instructions in achieving the fudgy cookie goodness. Start the preparation by preheating the oven to 350 °F and placing cut parchment paper on the cookie tray. You can spray a small amount of melted butter or coconut oil to the tray so the rimmed parchment paper will lightly stick to the tray. Next, mix the cocoa powder, erythritol, almond butter, vanilla extract, peanut butter powder, eggs, butter, water, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Use an electric hand mixer, and mix it until blended. Expect a very thick dough.

Pick a portion of the thick cookie dough, and form it into 1 ½–2-inch balls. Based on the number of ingredients, you may produce 12 round keto cookies or more based on size. Carefully place the cookie dough balls on the previously prepared baking sheet. Place them in the oven, and let them bake.

After 10–12 minutes, remove the tray from the oven, place it on aside, let it cool, and voila! You have at least 12 sweet; fudgy cookie treats before your eyes!

Low Carb Yum’s Brown Butter Coconut Keto Cookies

Let’s move to the scrumptious results of mixing brown butter and coconut. Lisa from Low Carb Yum revealed a genius recipe for creating keto brown butter coconut keto cookies. Cooking this sweet treat is a delight to the family. To start, here are the ingredients involved:

  • 1 cup of almond flour
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar sweetener
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flour
  • 3/4 and 2 tablespoons of Swerve
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of flaky sea salt
