Low Carb Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Cookies

If there's one thing that is easy to miss on any diet, it's chocolate chip cookies! They are hard to stay away from really… whether it's a church gathering, workplace cafeteria, or even the bakery at the grocery store, chocolate chip cookies are an American favorite.  I love how each person has their own way of making chocolate chip cookies, too.


If you have recently started a Keto diet, finding a tried and true low carb cookie is probably on your to do list! If you have been searching for one, you're in luck! See below for this easy recipe that uses standard Keto friendly ingredients.

You do need Swerve Granular Sweetener and Swerve Brown Sweetener.  This recipe was made with both ingredients, so substitutions are sure to change the flavor and texture of your final product. I also used coconut flour, which you probably have in your pantry if you have been eating low carb.

Finally, for the chocolate chips we used Lily's, which are a household name in unsweetened chocolate chips.  They bake beautifully and you can't go wrong with this brand.  I make the cookies fairly small as you can see below, so there are a good amount of chocolate chips in each cookie.

Let cool on a wire rack after baking, so they do not continue to cook on the cookie sheet.  I have this one, which is ideal for smaller cookies or very soft ones that may sink into the wider wire racks.

If you love these try our Low Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark which is one of my favorites.

My family started doing Keto in June of 2018. We chose to do Keto because my husband has Ankylosing Spondylitis and my son has horrible Psoriasis.

  1. Wow! These are the first keto cookies I’ve made that taste like regular chocolate chip cookies. I’ve tried SO many recipes and this, honestly, is the closest you can get to the real thing. Thank you for this recipe. Definitely gonna try some of your others!

    I substituted high cacao dark chocolate chips (easily available at my grocery store) and used Kerry Gold butter. The good stuff!! We ate the entire batch last night (whoops). Doesn’t matter though because it’s SO low in carbs 🙂

  2. I try to make these today they didn’t turn out at all there totally flat And loose. I did them exactly buy the instructions wondering if we needed more coconut flour

    1. I’m sorry to hear that as we have had several readers make this recipe and say it turned out great! Let us know how it turns out for you if you add more coconut flour as I make these all the time!

  3. I am a legit Baker. I failed at these and upset I wasted all the ingredients. They did not set up or cook correctly. Oh well on to the next recipie.

    1. I have made these at least 5 times and they have always turned out correctly, I am sorry you have had a bad experience. Remember these are LOW CARB cookies and are not going to turn out like regular chocolate chip cookies do. Going on a low carb diet you are going to compromise on some ingredients but our family and friends love this recipe.

    1. Hi Lauren, sometimes that happens, you probably didn’t do anything wrong. Next time, use a spatula to flatten the cookies after they have cooked a few minutes and won’t stick to the the utensil. 🙂

  4. I have made a lot of cookies in my 65 years but nothing could have prepared me for this hot gooey mess. I ended up with one cookie sheet size molten cookie which I rolled up crepe like using the parchment paper. As it sat cooling, grease seeped from the wasted ingredients. I spaced the next batch 3″ apart and they are still joining together. I have read and reread the ingredients and instructions and am truly puzzled for everything was exactly as written..

    1. I am so sorry Susan, I have made these at least 5 times and haven’t had any issue, we’ve also had friends and family make them as well so I am not sure what could be happening. Make sure your not making big scoops, make smaller scoops because this is a low carb recipe and will need to be adjusted as this isn’t like normal cookies. There should also not be any grease like you mentioned.

  5. These were actually pretty good! Was wondering if an egg or two could be added just to help hold them together? Just a thought for next time I make these because I will for sure be making them again! My husband and I really enjoyed them! ☺️
