Keto Baking Tips – Do not skip this step! ***UPDATED***

A few things to note when you are making a keto-approved baked dessert!  Some ingredients are one-for-one swaps are some aren’t!

When baking with coconut flour, you will be using MUCH less flour than typical all purpose flour.  Coconut flour is extremely absorbent so you will use much less than typical flour.

Also – when making these keto chocolate chip cookies – or any other low carb dessert or keto cookie recipe, I should note that my opinion is one should *always* use butter over coconut oil.

This is just my personal preference, but I tried this recipe with both butter and coconut oil.  The coconut oil cookies were NOT good 🙁  they were also very crumbly and burned very easily!

Butter just bakes better so I highly recommend using butter as the recipe calls for!  Also – you can experiment with using almond flour over coconut flour for these keto chocolate chip cookies.  But, remember with keto baking most ingredients are not a one-for-one.

Be sure to check your ingredient calculations to ensure you are getting the right amount of each ingredient.

Also – Swerve can be sweet!  If you are looking for a less sweet cookie, lessen the amount of granulated Swerve.  To maintain a cookie that stays together, keep the amount of brown sugar Swerve the same!  Also, I have not tried this recipe with erythritol, only Swerve so I cannot attest to how the cookies will bake if you use that.

Lastly, I recommend using parchment paper to line your cookie sheets.  I found that keto chocolate chip cookies with coconut flour tend to burn more easily than chocolate chip cookies with almond flour or regular flour.  I also baked these at a reduced heat and kept my eye on them to ensure they wouldn’t burn.

    I just made these cookies and baked them for 17 minutes. They did not hold their form at all. They crumbled when I took them off the cookie sheet. Any suggestions as to what I did wrong? I followed the recipe but didn’t have swerve so I used Erythritol.


      January 3, 2019 at 10:31 am

      Hmmmm… I am not exactly sure since I did use Swerve. The only thing I could think of would be that would impact it. The brown sugar Swerve substitute does act like more of a binding agent similar to regular brown sugar so that may be why!

    Hi, Lindsay; These look tasty! I’ve never heard of Swerve: I’ll see if I can get it in Canada. How would you describe the texture of these cookies? I know it can vary, based on oven temperature and cooking time, but I’m curious whether yours were sumptuous softies, or nice’n light sandy-crunchies, or satisfyingly substantial…. etc. Loved your peanut butter fat bombs recipe, by the way. 🙂 – Peggy


      January 30, 2019 at 2:25 pm

      Hey Peggy! Thanks! The texture for mine were crunchy for sure. Definitely more on the sandy-crunchy side! Thanks for checking out this and the other recipe 🙂
