Easy, 1-bowl, keto chocolate chip cookies, that are also vegan! They are also naturally Paleo, grain-free & gluten-free!
- 1/2 cup (128 g) smooth almond butter (with no added sugar)
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) warm water
- 2 tablespoons keto brown sugar substitute (e.g., ones by Swerve, Truvia, Sukrin Gold)
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (I used avocado oil)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup (37 g) coconut flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Optional:1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 3 tablespoons (42 g) keto miniature semisweet chocolate chips, divided (e.g., Lily’s Sweets Chocolate Chips).
- Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the almond butter, water, coconut sugar, oil and vanilla extract until blended and smooth.
- Stir in the coconut flour, baking powder and salt until blended. Let stand a few minutes to thicken. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the chocolate chips.
- Using a small cookie scoop or rounded tablespoons, scoop onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart. Press the remaining chocolate chips into surface of cookies.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 13 minutes until golden brown and set at the centers.
- Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet (they will become more firm as they cool). Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Storage: Store the cookies in an airtight container at (cool) room temperature for 1 day, the refrigerator for 1 week or the freezer for up to 6 months.
Non-Keto Variation: Replace the keto sweetener with coconut sugar or packed light brown sugar. Replace the keto chocolate chips with regular miniature chocolate chips The different macros for each cookie are: cals: 67/ carbs: 5.3 g / sugars 3 g.
Coconut Flour Tip: If using cups rather than weight to measure the coconut flour, be sure to lightly spoon it (do not pack) when measuring.
