Low carb cookies are actually very simple to translate from a normal recipe to a low carb recipe. Just substitute any flour added with either the same amount of almond flour or one quarter as much coconut flour. Substitute the sugar for something like Stevia and you will have a delicious keto converted recipe.

These keto chocolate chip cookies are honestly drool-worthy. I didn’t even wait for them to cool down before I devoured 4 of them all in one go.

Sugar-free cookies are great for keto snacks or keto treats because they contain so much butter. Make sure you use a good quality butter like Kerrygold or anything else grass-fed (and organic if possible). Grass-fed butter contains up to 6 times more CLA which can help your body burn fat properly and cleanly.

Whether you want to call them almond meal cookies, almond flour cookies, low carb chocolate chip cookies or even keto cookies, it’s all the same!  They are all one of the same family, and much like the ketogenic community love to help each other out!

I’ve started to really work for a good photo recently, instead of banging up any old photo straight out of the camera with the contrast boosted. Do you enjoy the look of these keto cookies? Comment below with any questions and I’ll answer them as soon as possible.

If you follow the 12 serving recipe, you can expect the following nutritional value and macronutrient break-up. Remember, by simply adding some nuts, a nut butter, cacao nibs, dried fruits, or extra chocolate chips you can drastically change these values. I always suggest logging what you plan to use into an app like My Fitness Pal before you start making the waffles to make sure that what you are planning will meet your goals.
