If you’re a chocolate lover, you’re going to go crazy for these cookies. Blogger Joe Duff of The Diet Chef somehow made the perfect keto-friendly chocolate cookie, all with less than 10 ingredients! We’re impressed.
Delicious Chocolate Keto Cookies
- 2 1/2 tbsp. butter
- 3 tbsp. keto chocolate chips
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 65 g blanched almond flour
- 40 g keto-friendly icing sugar
- 3 1/2 tbsp. dark unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 160°C (140ºC fan). In a medium-sized bowl, add the butter and half of the chocolate chips. Microwave for 15 to 30 seconds – just enough time to slightly melt the butter and chocolate. Mix the two together until a chocolate sauce forms.
In a small dish, add and whisk the egg until the yolk combines with the whites. Once it does, add the egg and the vanilla extract to the bowl with the chocolate sauce. Mix again.
Add the rest of the dry ingredients – saving some of the chocolate chips to top the cookies with. Mix until a ball of chocolate cookie dough forms.
Use a cookie scoop (or a tablespoon) to form 11 equal sized cookies. Add the cookies to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and top each cookie with the remaining chocolate chips. Flatten each cookie with either a spoon or a spatula.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. They should be VERY soft when they come out of the oven but don’t worry, this is normal!
Let the cookies cool down in the baking tray. As they cool they will set and firm up.
Once they do cool down, enjoy, and store the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge.
