I have tried many different low-carb chocolate cookie recipes, and these are my favorite keto cookies; moist, chewy, and so decadent!

After reading the previous reviews, I agree that the dough is crumbly. So, as I was mixing, I added a few tablespoons of unsweetened coconut milk and a dollop of sugar free mayo to my batter. EXCELLENT! The cookies were moist and chewy. I will definitely make these again! Read More

I’ve made these several times using Monk Fruit. Most of my family would like them a bit sweeter; I like the fact that they are not too sweet. (Like eating dark chocolate.). The dryness factor improves after 24 hours of sitting in a sealed container; not sure why-maybe the nut oils soak into the cocoa better with time. I may try the mayo option as I cannot do dairy.

Due to an egg allergy we substituted chia and a bit of almond milk. These were an easy and quick cookie to put together and it was nice to use up the last of a jar of almond butter from the pantry. We made them in the food processor. Read More

These were very enjoyable. My only complaints are that it tastes more like a brownie thank it does a cookie but that's okay! Also I bought a jar of almond butter and it literally takes the whole jar to make these; which was annoying considering how expensive almond butter is! I also added a tablespoon of mayo into mine for moisture. But all in all they were delicious. Read More

Really good I also add a couple of T of PB2 (powdered peanut butter) and a couple of T of melted Kerry gold butter - this way it isn't so dry. Another option would be to add some sugar free chocolate chips. The cookies have a different texture than a regular cookie very light and airy the perfect fix when you have a sweet craving and very low-carb! This is one of my go-2 recipes for sure! Read More

That was a waste of the good ingredients! The dough is as crumbly as the cookies. No flavor dry and nothing like that picture that made me believe they could be yummy! Disappointing for sure! Read More

Extremely dry no flavor not very tasty. If you make them do not use stevia drops use powder. also do not cook. Freeze them. The oven will cook all of the healthy oils out and dry them up. Read More
