Sometimes you just need a cookie, right? I’ve got 20 keto cookie recipes to satisfy your inner Cookie Monster.
C is for keto cookie recipe roundup, and I want every recipe to be good enough for me: make them dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and absolutely delicious (that’s a must).
A keto cookie roundup must feature a variety of flavor options to choose from, with different textures to satisfy every craving (Crispy! Soft! No bake! Coconutty!). And of course, every recipe has got to be keto-friendly.
Sounds like a cookie roundup pipe dream, right? BAH! My keto cookie recipe hunting skills are unmatched, and today, I’m sharing the goods with you.
But you’ve gotta make your own cookies, okay?
Let’s do this thing.
Chocolate chip cookies with 0.7 net carbs per cookie? Yep, and there’s no baking involved! The secret: hemp hearts for a kick of protein and coconut oil for a good serving of fat. Don’t have time to let these no-bake cookies chill? I get it! Enjoy the “dough” immediately. This recipe is from my paperback, The Keto Diet, along with over 125 other amazing keto recipes!
Dairy-free, egg-free shortbread cookies that are just as good (if not better!) than the traditional version! Drizzle or dunk in chocolate, or enjoy them plain, maybe with a Rocket Fuel Latte.
That flavor combination of nut butter and chocolate is always a homerun. Add some coconut and you’ve got a grand slam! Can’t do peanuts? Neither can I — swap peanut butter with more almond butter or macadamia nut butter (mmmm) and if you need this to be dairy-free, I’ve got a vegan cream cheese recipe that’ll work!
Sweet, buttery, salty, nutty… all of the above. These cookies would be a hit at a holiday cookie swap, or enjoyed at home. Need a butter substitute? Try butter flavored coconut oil!
This is the flavor combination your taste buds have been waiting for! Caramel, vanilla, chocolate, salt, and just a little bit of maple to deepen that flavor profile. It’s the elevated version of a traditional chocolate chip cookie.
Cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar, without the sugar! These cookies are melt in your mouth good — use coconut oil or butter flavored coconut oil depending on your flavor preferences!
If you need cookies in less than 30 minutes, this is your recipe. Shredded coconut and chocolatey goodness from cacao powder AND cacao butter, plus a good crunch from cacao nibs. Sooo chocolatey, so good!
Maple goodness with a delicious buttery crunch from macadamia nuts. Are these the perfect breakfast cookie? Try it and let me know! Make these dairy-free with butter flavored coconut oil.
Yes, you read that correctly! Rich black cocoa cookies with a kick of espresso and buttery vanilla cream filling. Need them dairy-free? You got it.
I know it’s October, but this is one of my most popular recipes year-round! These fat bombs have the taste of cookie dough without the stomach ache, and you can decorate these cookies for your holiday of choice (Halloween! Christmas! Taco Day!) They freeze perfectly, so you can always have fat bombs on hand!
Magic, indeed! These cookie bars are crunchy, chewy, melty awesomeness all in one. The key is the sugar-free condensed milk, which you can make dairy-free by swapping heavy cream for coconut cream. And of course, use butter flavored coconut oil in place of butter.
Light and airy, melt in your mouth, and just a hint of almond flavor. These meringues are so beautiful, and you can flavor them with your favorite extract if you want to switch it up a bit.
Of course I had to include a bacon cookie in this roundup! Swap the peanut butter for my favorite crunchy almond butter and you’ll have a delicious flavor trifecta of nut butter, chocolate, and bacon, all in one cookie!
The perfect seasonal cookie — what could be more festive than ginger and molasses? Chewy with just a bit of spice, this is comfort in a cookie. Make this recipe dairy-free with butter flavored coconut oil.
Keto oatmeal cookies?! Yes. The secret: flaked coconut and sliced almonds! They mimic the texture of oatmeal without the carbs and fulfill the nostalgia of oatmeal cookies, just like Granny used to make. Dairy-free option: butter flavored coconut oil.
A tropical twist on the traditional chocolate chip recipe, because coconut and chocolate are meant to be! Use butter flavored coconut oil for the cookies and coconut cream for the glaze to make it dairy-free!
If chewy cookies are your thing, these cookies are going to be your new favorite! What’s the secret to the chewy awesomeness? Gelatin! I thought this was pretty clever, and the taste is spot on.
A brownie cookie? I’m in! I’m allergic to peanut butter, that’s why I love that this recipe suggests sunflower butter an alternative! If that’s not your jam go for smooth almond butter — either way, you’re going to get that awesome marriage of nut butter and chocolatey goodness.
A vanilla latte in the form of keto cookie — this one wins bonus points for originality! Make these cookies dairy-free with butter flavored coconut oil, and if you like chocolate with your latte, drizzle a bit of melted chocolate and coconut oil overtop. YUM.
These fudgy cookies are like cookies and brownies all in one. Want to make them festive? Cut out a jack-o-lantern paper “face” and sprinkle with confectioners erythritol! Use butter flavored coconut oil to keep it dairy-free.
There’s no shame in the cookie game, whether you share with friends or keep them all to yourself. If you loved these keto cookies recipes, share them on Pinterest and spread the love!
