Why These Cookies Are Keto-Friendly:
These keto chocolate chip cookies are low in carbs and sugar-free thanks to the use of almond flour and coconut flour instead of regular flour and Swerve sweetener instead of sugar. Almond flour and coconut flour are both low-carb flours that are high in fiber and protein, making them perfect for a keto diet. Swerve sweetener is a zero-calorie sweetener that is made from erythritol and oligosaccharides, and it does not raise blood sugar levels or insulin levels.
Tips and Tricks:
– Make sure the butter is softened to room temperature before using it to make the cookie dough. This will help the butter cream faster and more evenly with the Swerve sweetener.
– Use a cookie scoop to ensure that the cookies are all the same size and bake evenly.
– Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This will help them set and prevent them from falling apart.
These keto chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate low-carb sweet treat that will satisfy any sweet tooth. They are easy to make, require minimal ingredients, and are perfect for anyone on a keto diet. Plus, they have a vegetarian and vegan alternative so everyone can enjoy them.
