This is my best keto chocolate cookies recipe – it has double the chocolate! I’ve been looking for ways to use my favorite ChocZero Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips every chance I get lately, and these cookies were a great use for ’em.
These cookies are not only studded with chocolate chips, they’re inside the cookie dough, too… which makes for an ultra rich, ultra moist and chewy double chocolate cookie dough. If you love keto chocolate chip cookies but want an extra dose of chocolate, then these keto double chocolate chip cookies are for you. You’re welcome. 😉

How To Make Keto Chocolate Cookies
Easy keto chocolate cookies take just 15 minutes to prep, let me show you how to make them:
- Melt chocolate. In a double boiler over low heat, melt 1 package of ChocZero Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate Chips. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to lukewarm.
- Beat butter and sweetener. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together the butter and monk fruit allulose blend, until fluffy.
- Add wet ingredients. Beat in egg, vanilla, and salt.
- Add melted chocolate. Beat in the melted chocolate.
TIP: Be sure the chocolate is lukewarm, not hot, when you add it. Otherwise, you might cook the batter.
- Add dry ingredients. Beat in almond flour, 1/2 cup at a time. If you’re using xanthan gum, sprinkle it in, then beat again.
TIP: Xanthan gum is recommended for extra chewy chocolate cookies. But if you don’t want to use it, it’s okay to skip.
- Chill. Chill the dough in the fridge, until it’s not too sticky to work with.
- Scoop. Scoop the keto chocolate cookie dough onto parchment lined baking sheets, then flatten into cookies.
- Bake. Bake until the tops are no longer sticky, but still very soft. Allow to cool completely in the pan.
Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe FAQs
What kind of almond flour is okay to use?
It’s important to use super fine blanched almond flour for this keto chocolate cookies recipe. Do not use almond meal or a coarse almond flour – both of these would result in a more grainy result.
Can I use coconut flour?
No, sorry. You’d need to make multiple other changes for the recipe to work.
If you’re looking for something with coconut flour, try one of my other coconut flour recipes.
If you can’t have almond flour but still want chocolate cookies, you can make my flourless double chocolate cookies instead, which use the same sugar-free chocolate chips – just sub the almond butter for sunflower seed butter to make them nut-free.
Can I use a different sweetener?
I highly recommend monk fruit allulose blend for the moistest and best chocolate keto cookies.
If you don’t have it, my keto sweeteners guide has a conversion calculator included – use that to find out how much to use of whatever you have. Just know that the moisture and texture will be different if you use something else, and they may be less chewy.
Can you make keto chocolate fudge cookies dairy-free?
Yes, swap out the butter for your favorite vegan butter alternative. (Check the labels on these to see if you’re okay with what they use instead.)
You could use coconut oil, but these cookies taste best with butter flavor! While I haven’t tried it in this keto chocolate cookies recipe, I’ve have had success with butter-flavored coconut oil for other recipes.
What kind of chocolate chips should I use?
This recipe features ChocZero Dark Chocolate Chips – and you’ll definitely need to use those for the cookie dough.

Tap on the times in the instructions below to start a kitchen timer while you cook.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a double boiler on the stove over low heat, melt 1 package (7 oz) ChocZero Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to lukewarm.
Meanwhile, use a hand mixer or stand mixer to beat together the butter and sweetener, until fluffy.
Beat in the egg, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat in the melted chocolate once it’s lukewarm.
Beat in the almond flour, 1/2 cup (118 mL) at a time.
If using xanthan gum, sprinkle (don't dump) it over the cookie dough, then beat in using the hand mixer.
Fold in the remaining chocolate chips.
Chill dough in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Use a medium cookie scoop to drop rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie to about 1/3 in (.8 cm) thick. (You can make them thicker or thinner to your liking. Keep in mind they only spread a little and don't thin out during baking, so make them as thin as you want them when done.)
Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until the tops are no longer sticky on top, but still very soft. (Time will vary based on your oven and thickness of your cookies.) Allow to cool completely in the pan before handling.
