The 13 Best Keto Cookie Recipes (Fat Burning + Low Carb)



Bite into these tasty, keto cookies while still keeping your macros in check!

One of the hardest parts of going keto is giving up all forms of sugar. From high-fructose fruits to sweet baked goods like cookies, the keto diet seems to kicks them out the door.

Luckily, it’s easy to make your favorite treats keto-friendly. Keto sweeteners and flours are a lifesaver when it comes to keto baking, and things like stevia and monk fruit, or almond flour, ensure you can still enjoy low-carb sweets in moderation.

These cookies make smart substitutions to keep your cookies in low-carb, high-fat, ketosis-fueling territory. Bonus: They’re also Paleo, so you know you’re eating clean treats.

Whether you crave buttery shortbread cookies, classic chocolate chip cookies, or Italian Amaretti cookies, there’s a keto-friendly recipe for it. Learn how to whip up these keto cookies at home so you won’t feel bereft at the pastry case again.
