What Ingredients Do You Need to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Most of these items are typical for a cookie recipe, but there are a few that you may need to pick up at the store. Things like coconut flour, almond flour, serve sweetener, and Lily’s chocolate chips are unique to this cookie recipe to help lower the number of carbs. 

If you are doing keto for any length of time you will definitely be using these items again so they won’t be left to collect dust in your pantry.

What Flour Do You Use to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

You can use almond flour or coconut flour, depending on your taste preferences. If you don’t like the taste of coconut then stick with almond flour. For both almond and coconut flour, I use Bob’s Red Mill because it has fewer carbs per serving than others.

How Many Carbs Are in Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies?

There are 6 net carbs in these chocolate chip cookies when using the brands I outline. If you are looking for fewer carbs, you can swap out the serve sweetener and brown sugar for monk fruit sweetener. That will give you fewer carbs but might change the flavor of the cookies.
