These Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies are rich, chewy and even better than their sugary, carb laden counterparts.
The secret to these chewy keto chocolate chip cookies:
Have you ever had a keto chocolate chip cookie that just gets better and better days after you made it? Me either... until I made these. I thought they were great straight off the cookie sheet, scorching my mouth because I refused to let them cool, but boy, oh boy, they were even more amazing when I grabbed one from the pantry the next day. Rich and chewy, and the perfect texture of a real flour based, conventional sugar, high carb cookie. In fact, if I hadn't made these Keto Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies and someone served me one, I would never be able to tell that they were low carb cookies at all.
Substitutions and Serving Suggestions
You want to know what makes a mindblowingly delicious keto dessert? Take two of these cookies and use them to sandwich some of my Low Carb Mason Jar Chocolate Ice Cream and make a low carb cookie ice cream sandwich. SO GOOD! And to think that people say this lifestyle is hard.
A couple of notes:
- I like to pull these keto cookies out of the oven at the 10 minute mark and lightly press on them to flatten. This makes for a deliciously dense and chewy cookie.
- If you scoop them in large mounds, I recommend flattening them when you pull them out of the oven for a denser, cookie like texture. For a more airy cake-like texture, leave them puffed up.
- If you are making smaller cookies and making more than 18, I would decrease the cooking time to 8 to 10 minutes.
- You do not have to include the grass-fed collagen gelatin (not to be confused with collagen peptides), but it does make them chewier. I got the idea of adding gelatin to cookies from my talented friend Cristina of The Castaway Kitchen. Check out her Keto Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
- You can leave out the caramel extract and sea salt flakes to make a delicious plain low carb chocolate chip cookie
- Store these keto cookies in an airtight container. They are even better the next day!
- I have not tested this recipe as a coconut flour cookie recipe, but if you have a nut allergy I'm sure it would be equally as delicious with coconut flour. To substitute coconut flour, you would need to add a lot more liquid, and eggs.
