The Best Keto Soft Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies and especially the soft batch variety have always been my favorite cookie. Other cookies are great, but there’s nothing like a classic chocolate chip cookie.

This keto version of soft batch chocolate chip cookies is truly amazing!

In fact, when my teenager was talking with his Nana on the phone, he said they were better than the soft batch cookies he used to have at her house. Now that’s saying something!

My husband is more of a crunchy cookie kind of guy, so I’ll have to make a crispy version for him another time ? Don’t worry, I’ll share that recipe with you too!

Equipment to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mixing Bowls (medium and large)

Electric Mixer

Baking Sheet

Silicone Mat (or parchment paper)

Specialty Ingredients

Almond Flour

Xanthan Gum

Bocha Sweet – I actually had someone ask that I make more recipes using Bocha Sweet. It is more expensive than erythritol-based Swerve Sweetener, but it really helps to give these cookies a nice soft-batch texture.

I’ve read that Allulose also gives a similar texture, but I have not tried that out yet. For a crunchier cookie, I recommend using Swerve Granulated Sweetener.

Yacon Syrup – This is totally optional, but provides an amazing flavor for the cookies. It’s a low-carb alternative to molasses.

Lily’s Chocolate Chips – Lily’s makes both dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips that are sweetened with Stevia. Either kind will taste amazing with this recipe.

How to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies

Before you start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, salt, baking powder, and xanthan gum.

Keto Cookie dough dry ingredients

Using an electric hand mixer, beat the butter and Bocha sweet together until creamy in a large bowl.

Then, add the dry ingredients into the large bowl with the wet ingredients and beat until you have a crumbly dough. Make sure there is no loose flour at the bottom of the bowl.

Finally, use a spoon to stir in the Lily’s Chocolate Chips.

Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop 1-inch cookie dough balls onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Gently press the cookie dough to flatten it to about 1/2 inch.

Keto Chocolate Chips Cookies prebake

Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes, until the edges are just starting to become golden brown. The cookies will be very soft but will firm up as they cool off.

Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.

These cookies look delicious! Can I use powdered Swerve instead of the Bocha sweetener? Thanks,

Hey Becky! Thank you! Yes, you can use powdered Swerve for the cookies in place of Bocha. I've used both :)
