The Soft Baked Keto Cookies you will Love

soft baked keto cookies

Since starting Keto I have been on a quest. A quest for the perfect Keto cookie. I have tried many recipes on this journey. A few of them I liked, a few of them I hated. By far and away these soft baked keto cookies along with our earlier posted Keto Meringues have been the favorites. While many Keto cookies tend to be either too dense or too crumbly these are really delightful!

These are very simple to make and store well in the fridge or freezer. Of course, I find these best straight out of the oven – I mean who doesn’t love still warm cookies? The real challenge with these cookies is making enough to store for later. Between myself, my husband and the kids the first batch pretty much vanishes. I have to make a double batch if I hope to store a few for later! I expect these can be very easily modified as well. Cut up some sugar-free peanut butter cups if you can’t find sugar free chocolate chips or exchange the almonds for macadamia nuts if you prefer! This recipe came from my mother and although I don’t know exactly where she got it from we have tinkered with it a touch here and there.

Soft Baked Keto Cookie – Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 Degrees.
  2. Melt butter and set it aside to let it cool slightly
  3. In a small bowl whisk your egg, add in the condensed milk and the slightly cooled melted butter
  4. Combine all dry ingredients in a separate larger bowl
  5. Mix in the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. The mixture should look like a wet dough.
  6. Spoon the dough onto a cookie pan covered in parchment paper – or my personal favorite, a silicone baking mat. You should be able to make about 12 decent sized cookies.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes
  8. Cool slightly and enjoy!

Note – If you are having trouble finding sugar free sweetened condensed milk then you can substitute it for condensed coconut milk or make your own by combining 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, 3/4 cup sweetener of choice, 4 tbsp of butter and stirring it over medium heat for approximately 30 minutes or until it has reduced by half. Pour the mixture into a heatproof container and allow to cool in the fridge for another hour or so until thickened.

  1. These look great. Glad to see you are still able to have treats and desserts while on Keto, even if it takes a bit to find the right recipe. Might have to give these ones a try.

      It’s actually pretty simple to turn most dessert recipes Keto with only a few substitutions and some math. A few things require a bit more tinkering to get just right but the fact that I can still eat my cake when I want too is probably why I have managed to stick with Keto when all other ways of eating failed me haha.

  2. I’ve heard a tiny bit about Keto but not too much, these cookies sound and look really nice! I can see why you have to make 2 batches of them to be able to save some for later, haha. Thanks for sharing, great recipe πŸ˜€

      You could quite easily make non-Keto versions of these by subbing out the sweetener and chocolate chips for the regular versions. I would probably keep the flour though as almond flour and regular flour tend to behave differently. I expect they would taste ust as amazing either way!

      I think its the fact that I can make desserts which appeal to me that’s kept me on track with Keto. It takes a bit more work but its worth it for cookies!

  3. Love the look of these cookies! Like really rustic. In my experience, those are always the tastiest!

      I tend to think the same thing, they always remind me of my grandma’s homemade cookies and obviously those were always far better then any store bought variety!

  4. You had me at cookie. Lol. They look delicious! Thank u for the recipeπŸ˜€πŸ’›πŸ€—
