Almond Flour Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 350° degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or use a baking mat. We use a silicone Silpat baking mat.
- In a mixing bowl melt the butter and coconut oil.
- Add the erythritol or sugar substitute and egg and mix until combined.
- Mix in the salt and baking powder.
- Add the almond flour a little bit at a time to avoid any clumping, Whisk everything together to combine thoroughly.
- Fold and stir in the dark chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
- Get your baking sheet or mat and shape the dough into tablespoon cookies a few inches apart.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until it begins to brown around edges. Delicious warm or cooled. Enjoy the cookies on the day of baking for the best chewy taste.
Prior to baking, it is good to refrigerate the dough to prevent the cookies from spreading too much in the oven.
If you cook the cookies straight away from room temperature, you may end up with a giant rectangular cookie. Keep an eye on it while it bakes.
You can use almond meal in place of blanched almond flour or grind fresh almonds in powder for this recipe.
Another option to add a small handful of your favorite nut to the cookie dough. Pecans are one of our favorites to bump up the healthy fats but did not have any on hand today.
The almond cookies are healthy, taste delicious, simple to make and most importantly a keto friendly snack. Perfect with a cup of coffee or as a dessert.
Store any leftover cookies in the fridge or room temperature for a few days.
You can also store them in the freezer, so you have a high-fat keto dessert on hand when a sugar craving hits. They taste excellent straight from the freezer as well.
