Pro Tips

When making these keto chocolate chip cookies there are a few things you can do to ensure they turn out perfectly every time.

  • Do not overmix the batter: Overmixing the batter will result in tough cookies. You want to mix until all the ingredients are just combined.
  • Do not overcook: These cookies are best when they are soft and chewy. If you overcook them they will be dry and crumbly.
  • Let the cookies cool: It is important to let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. This ensures that they hold their shape and do not break apart.
  • Be gentle when folding in the chocolate chips and nuts to your batter. You don’t want to break up the chips or nuts.
