Keto Sugar Free Chocolate Coconut Cookies made low carb, grain free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free!
Chocolate Coconut Cookies
Any chocolate lover's reading today? I sure am! I think I know exactly one person in my life that is not a fan of chocolate. All I can say to that is, HUH? WHAT? Seriously? You've got to be kidding? If you're not a fan of chocolate than this recipe is certainly not for you. But if you love a fudgey chocolate cookie than keep reading folks cause this one is a winner!
Keto Chocolate Cookies
As my life and eating habits have changed to a more low carb life style, my recipes now reflect this change. While still always sugar free there is a difference between sugar free and sugar free and low carb. I encourage you to read the post, Sugar-Free Versus Low Carb: What's The Difference, in case you are unsure. I wrote another post about the differences between Low Carb versus Keto and my 6 week results.
Flourless Chocolate Cookies
I was recently browsing through my huge archive of recipes and found my Flourless Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. I knew I needed a low carb version.
Now obviously you can't make oats low in carbs, they just aren't. BUT the replacement of oats CAN be made into a successful flourless cookie and the one you see before your eyes today.
I can tell you my kids ate these up like nobodies business! Next time I will need to make a double batch! I think they are even better than my oatmeal ones!
If you are browsing through my Recipe Index and happen to see a higher carb sugar free recipe and would love an adaption to make it low carb, please let me know!

Can you replace the avocado oil with coconut oil or another kind of oil? Thanks! I want to make these!
Yes any oil you like is fine.
Can you substitute allulose or monk fruit for the swerve in this recipe? Would it be the same measured amount at the swerve? Thank you!

I want to make these delicious sounding cookies but my husband doesn't like the texture of shredded coconut. However he is good with coconut flour. Can I use coconut flour and if so howmuch? Thanks for all you do!
Hmmmm coconut flour is a lot more absorbent than the shredded coconut. Try just 1/2 cup and look at the texture to make sure it isn't too wet, see my video on FB for texture. If it looks too soup like add just 1/4 cup more. Let me know how it turns out and how much you end up using.
These were good the first day, but very dry the next day. I used Lakanto monk fruit sweetener. Could that be the reason?
These are my favorite keto cookies! So easy, but brilliant. And chopped up and sprinkled over a bit of keto ice cream? Absolute heaven. Thank you for this recipe. It’s perfect.
That looks AMAZING!!!
What if you replaced the chocolate for protein powder, then they would be blondie/coconut cookies?
i loved the combo of chocolate and coconut! But I definitely had a cooling aftertaste. My only replacement was coconut oil. I used swerve and Stevia Select vanilla liquid. Any advice?
I don't ever notice a cooling effect with the Swerve but you could try reducing the Swerve and increasing the stevia.
Do they spread when you bake them? Could you put them in the fridge before baking? Would that help keep them plump and not flat?
They really don't spread much, they stay pretty plump.
I don't have sunflower on hand, can I sub coconut oil or grapeseed oil in this recipe, instead?
Yes any other oil should work fine.
these sound delicious but my son can't tolerate coconut.... is there anything else i could replace it with? x

I'm not surprised that your kids would gobble these up. I know I would too. Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to have to try these!
I'm definitely a fan of chocolate and love it even more when it's paired with coconut. These sound so good!
Is there a brand of liquid Stevia you prefer over the other?
It's linked under my notes above the recipe.
There's some great information here and of course the bonus is the cookies! They look delicious!
Oh such delicious looking chocolate treats and they are dairy free. Yay, this is our kind of treat.
Amanda @ The Kitcheneer
Loving these cookies! I am nuts for coconut anything so these are a perfect healthier option!
is it okay to use powdered stevia in place of liquid and swerve?
Martha @ A Family Feast
I'm with everyone else - love chocolate and coconut together!
Ooooh these look and sound amazing! Perfect flavor combination!
Coconut and chocolate is a match made in heaven!!!! I love these, and they're so pretty and puffy too!
The Food Hunter
Chocolate and coconut.....I love the combination!
Is there any sugar free receipies without Stevia or other artificial sweetener?
Not really. I use stevia in all my dessert recipes. Stevia is not artificial. Feel free to remove and add your sugar of choice.
Can you just remove the stevia and sugar altogether or does it make the recipe not as thick or whatever ?
You could remove the liquid stevia here as it does not add any bulk to the recipe, but the Swerve does effect the cookie. You'd need to replace it with another granulated sugar free sweetener of choice. By the way, Swerve is not sugar.
There are so many plusses in this recipe. They sound delicious!
