Of course, cutting out simple carbs doesn’t quite satisfy the inevitable sweet tooth, and that’s where low-carb cookies come in handy.

Keto Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

This list is packed with keto cookies that are delicious on or off the diet. Whether you’re looking for a diet-friendly dessert, or simply looking for sweet treats, these treats are irresistible.

I’ve found seventeen incredible keto cookie recipes that are mouthwatering and heavenly for everyone! An extra perk of keto cookies is that they’re gluten-free, too! 

From simple peanut butter cookies to cream cheese matcha cookies, you’ll flip for these recipes.

1. Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies – Best Low-Carb Super Soft Cookies

If you make a batch of traditional chocolate chip cookies and plate them with these keto chocolate chip cookies, I’d be willing to bet you won’t be able to tell the difference!

The recipe relies on coconut flour, coconut oil, erythritol (natural sweetener), xanthan gum, and sugar-free chocolate chips. The result? Chewy, soft, chocolate chip cookies!

2. Keto Peanut Butter Cookies

I have said it before, and I’ll say it again: these are a must-have for low-carb or keto diets.

Peanut butter cookies are simple in construction, and these are no exception. With just five ingredients, these mix up so easily and come out as delicious traditional peanut butter cookies. 

3. Peanut Blossoms – Low-Carb and Gluten-Free

Peanut blossoms are a traditional peanut butter cookie baked then centered with a Hershey’s kiss. 

This recipe replaces the peanut butter cookie ingredients with keto-friendly ingredients.

You’ll make your own “kisses” by melting sugar-free dark chocolate and butter and dolloping your chocolate in the center.

4. Keto Almond Joy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m a sucker for Almond Joys, and this low-carb recipe removes the guilt of sweet treats!

In addition to almond flour, you’ll add in almond slices, coconut, and sugar-free chocolate chips. Go ahead and make a double batch and freeze some for a tasty snack.

5. Keto Low Carb Sugar Cookies

Everyone knows the holidays are full of sugary sweets. Give Santa a hand in fitting down the chimney this year with keto sugar cookies to decorate.

These are holiday party-friendly, and nobody will know they’re gluten-free and sugar-free. Be sure you don’t over-bake them, and decorate them with your favorite icing and sprinkles.      

Edible cookie dough is one of those treats that everyone enjoys, whether it’s because of the nostalgia of enjoying cookie dough off the beaters, or the cool treat paired with ice cream. 

With this recipe, you can count on enjoying lovely low-carb cookie dough by the spoonful late at night.

7. Coconut Flour Shortbread Cookies

Three ingredients to throw together crunchy shortbread cookies? Count me in. The only flaw I found in this recipe is it doesn’t come with the classic blue tin we all know and love.

The cookies are superb and delicious when dipped in coffee or tea.

8. Low-Carb Almond Cinnamon Butter Cookies

Despite the title, I think you’ll find these to be a lovely keto-friendly snickerdoodle-style cookie. 

Take the traditional shaping of peanut butter cookies and roll these in granular sweetener and cinnamon, and you’ll see exactly what I’m saying!

If you’re looking for the flavor profiles the title promises, try replacing the butter with sugar-free almond butter in a 1:1 ratio!

9. Keto Chocolate Cookies

Dieting doesn’t mean you have to go without the treats you love, like chocolate chip cookies. In this recipe, you’ll create rich, chewy, chocolatey cookies that are deceivingly delicious.

Shape them round like the recipe shows, or flatten to make traditional cookie shapes! Trust me, both ways are absolutely awesome!

10. Keto Salted Caramel Sugar Cookies

If you try any recipe from this list, please do yourself a favor and make these cookies. Creating the sugar-free caramel sauce is really the center of this recipe.

You’ll make sugar-free sugar cookies first, then top the cookies with the sugar-free caramel sauce you made. Pro tip: sprinkle some coarse salt on top for texture change.

11. The Best Keto Coconut Flour Cookies

If you’re on a keto or low-carb diet, be sure to add this recipe to your repertoire. Be sure you bookmark it now!

In this recipe, you’ll whip together the basics, and feel free to make them your own with a keto-friendly, low-carb, high-protein mix in like chopped nuts, coconut flakes, or sugar-free chocolate!

12. Keto Vanilla Cinnamon Cookies

These cookies are best compared to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, minus the oatmeal. 

I’d highly recommend you allow the time to chill the cookie dough before baking. This allows the almond flour in the dough to absorb some moisture and results in chewy, flavorful cookies.

13. Keto Lime Cookies

Looking for your next keto-friendly summer cookie? Look no further! I’m blown away by how tart and delicious the lime zest and extract are in these cookies! 

The base of the cookie is built with coconut flour and cream cheese, so your cookie batch will be soft and chewy. These are definitely best served cool, and they freeze really well, too!

14. Keto Cream Cheese Matcha Cookies

I won’t lie, I was skeptical about this recipe when I first pulled out the ingredients. I’m so thankful I decided to give them a try, and I will definitely be repeating it.

You’ll mix up almond flour, monk fruit sweetener, butter, matcha powder, and cream cheese. The end result: soft and chewy, matcha flavored cookies fit for any treat from breakfast to dessert.

15. Keto Pumpkin Cookies

I’m determined to believe that fall is the ultimate season because of all of the pumpkin dessert recipes.

Keto dieters no longer have to miss out on the pumpkin spice craze, thanks to the creativity of keto recipe creators.

Personally, I find these fabulous without the cream cheese frosting, but feel free to try them both ways. You won’t regret the effort of prepping these keto pumpkin cookies.

16. Keto Gingerbread Cookies

You won’t want to make traditional gingerbread cookies after trying this recipe! Not only are they soft and delicious, but they don’t spread when baking.

This makes it so easy to make gingerbread house parts or perfectly shaped cookies without stressing about how they might expand.

17. Keto Pecan Snowball Cookies

Talk about holiday heaven! Do yourself a favor and give these keto-friendly, crunchy, nutty snowballs a try. 

Take note that you’ll need to freeze the dough before baking, so plan ahead and make a big batch to keep in your freezer.

The great news is the ingredient list is so short and simple, and these are delightful for keto dieters and cookie connoisseurs alike.
