The Best Keto Cookies – crunchy and sweet, made with nut butter, chocolate chips, coconut and walnuts (or pecans).
Chewy, crunchy, nutty and sweet cookies, that are naturally gluten and sugar free and taste delicious. Chocolate is added to complete their wonderful taste.
These Keto cookies can be made in advance and enjoyed as a snack during the week. Crunchy nuts, sugar free chocolate and shredded coconut – a delicious combination of wholesome, low carb ingredients for a healthy sweet treat.
Sweets on Keto diet
The great news is that yes, you can have some amazing sweet treats while on the Keto diet and you can easily make them yourself.
From mousses to cheesecakes, layer cakes, flourless cakes, cookies and bars, there are so many different options. You won’t miss real white and brown cane sugar and the extra carbs, I promise you.
Make sure you check the Keto dessert section on my blog, if you’d like to make some healthy, restaurant quality low carb desserts by yourself, like the best Keto cookies.
Ingredients to make low carb cookies with nuts:
Nut butter – I used peanut butter, but almond butter can be used
Low carb sweetener – you can use either confectioners or granulated sweetener. I used powdered erythritol i today’s recipe.
Baking powder – since there is no flour or even nut flour, we need a little but of leavening agent in the cookie dough.
Egg to bind the dough together
Chocolate chips – I used Lilly’s low carb sugar fre chocolate chips
Pecans or Walnuts – the lower the carbs the better

What nuts to use in Keto cookies?
Ideally use nuts with the lowest carb content like pecans.
Macadamia nuts, Brazil Nuts, Hazelnuts and Walnuts are relatively low in calories and could be used in this healthy cookie recipe. Hazelnuts are ny favorite, but today I used walnuts, because this is what I had.
I’d personally stay away from pistachios and almonds.
There is no nut flour in these cookies.
