Keto Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

When I started following a Ketogenic Lifestyle one of my first questions was “where are all the recipes?!”  Little did I know back then that the key to success on Keto was actually keeping things simple with primarily meat and vegetables.  Now that I’m on track to maintenance and have a good handle on my meal planning I have started to experiment with more recipes.  I thought that, especially with the holiday season fast approaching, it would be good to have a few keto friendly baking options.  Thats where these Keto Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies come in…

These cookies are moist, chewy and the perfect low carb, sugar-free keto treat!

I began by testing out a number of recipe variations in small batches.  Recipe ingredients like almond flour can be expensive so it’s a good idea to start small.  Finding taste testers interested in sugar-free cookies can also be a challenge (crazy but true!)  After a bit of tweaking this recipe has fast become a favorite.

The dark “chocolate chips” that I used for these cookies actually come from chopping up two squares of my favorite 90% Dark Chocolate Bar from Lindt.  I just find that this chocolate is not as bitter as dark bakers chocolate.  You could also use sugar-free chocolate chips found at your local health food store.  This is not a traditionally “sweet” cookie recipe so if you want a sweeter cookie you can totally add more stevia to the mix.  Just be sure to adjust the carbs accordingly because each tsp of stevie adds one carb.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup almond flour
125 grams cream cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
3 tsp stevia
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
20 grams Lindt 90% dark chocolate, chopped

Directions:

In a food processor mix dry ingredients.
Add egg, extract, cheese and chocolate.
Combine until a soft dough forms.
Use a small cookie scoop to place walnut size balls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12 mins at 350.

Now all I have to do is make these “festive” looking for our annual holiday cookie exchange.  Anyone know how I can make white chocolate and peppermint “keto friendly”??
