Keto and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


Bakery-style chocolate chip cookies made with almond and coconut flour and sweetened with monk fruit for a totally indulgent low-carb, gluten-free treat!



1/4 cup softened and room temperature salted butter

1/4 cup almond butter

1/2 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup granulated monkfruit sweetener (or coconut sugar if not keto)

2/3 cup + 1 tbsp. almond flour

2 tsp. coconut flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder (or for a flatter, crunchier cookie, use ¼ tsp. baking soda and ¼ tsp. baking powder)

1 large egg

120g chopped dark chocolate (we used 85%)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, combine the soft butter, almond butter and vanilla extract. Mix in the sweetener, almond flour and coconut flour. Whisk the egg and mix it into the dough. Allow the dough to rest for 3-5 minutes, then mix in the baking powder.

Chop your chocolate and fold it into the dough. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop out 8 balls of dough onto a parchment covered baking sheet.


Bake for 11-14 minutes, or until the undersides of the cookies are just golden. Allow them to cool slightly prior to moving them to a cooling rack.


Different brands of coconut flour can vary in absorbancy. For this recipe I used Whole Foods brand Coconut flour. You may want to start with 1 teaspoon of coconut flour and allow the dough to rest for a few minutes to thicken up, and then adjust up to 2 teaspoons based on the thickness of the dough.

If you’re not Keto or don’t want to use a sugar substitute, this recipe is excellent with coconut sugar. Just sub the sweetener 1:1.

For flatter, crunchier cookies, use ¼ tsp. baking powder and ¼ tsp. baking soda. For a slightly fluffier cookie that doesn’t flatten out, use ½ tsp. Baking powder.

For this recipe, we recommend either roughly chopping up your favorite dark chocolate bar, or using chocolate chunks.
