(by Sugar-Free Mom)

Check out those beautiful keto treats! These Sugar-Free Paleo Pecan Snowball Cookies are perfect for the holidays or anytime you want a buttery, sweet treat. (FYI, the recipe uses a buttery spread, but you can opt for regular ‘ol butter.)

#2: Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies with Coconut Flour

(by Drop the Sugar)

Um, chocolate chip keto cookies. Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? According to Lisa, the recipe creator, these have a texture between a soft chocolate chip cookie and a hard chocolate chip cookie. (And taste incredible, of course.)

(by Low Carb Joy)

Have a chocolate craving? These chocolaty ketogenic cookies will take care of that! The ingredient list is short, so you’ll be able to whip them up in no time to satisfy your craving. (Chocolate cravings are always an emergency, right?)

Yes, those are tagalongs, like the Girl Scouts cookies. Yes, they are low carb. No, I am not messing around with you. Yes, you need to make them right now. (Now wipe that drool off your keyboard!)

#5: Peanut Butter Cookies

So these are tasty as hell 😜😜 #pbcookies #ketocookies #ketolifestyle #ketosnack

A post shared by Amber (@amber_lucas9098) on

Check out that easy recipe! It’s a keeper for sure. Important: I was confused by the “stevia sugar” reference, so I looked up the original recipe. You actually should use erythritol, like Swerve.

#7: Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto No-Bake Cookies

(by Peace, Love, and Low Carb)

It doesn’t get any easier than no-bake cookies! Unlike traditional no-bake cookies that use oats, these no bake cookies use coconut flakes (brilliant!).

#8: Bacon Onion Cookies

(by Peace, Love, and Low Carb)

No, that isn’t a typo. These really are bacon onion cookies. Before you turn your nose up at this recipe, think of it as a thick cracker. A thick bacon onion cracker? Now we’re talkin’!

#9: Low Carb Coconut Chip Cookies

(by Ruled.me)

Would you take a look at those cookies?! Yes, these low carb keto cookies actually have a glaze on top. (A pretty brilliant glaze, if I might add.) If that’s not decadent, I don’t know what is!

#10: Keto Gingersnap Cookies

(by Ruled.me)

If you’re looking for a refreshing and sweet keto treat (hey, that rhymes!), you’ll love these Keto Gingersnap Cookies. According to the creator of the recipe, they’re hard on the outside but soft and chewy (and buttery!) on the inside.

#11: Low Carb Butter Cookie Energy Bites

(by Low Carb with Jennifer)

Okay, so I cheated slightly with this recipe, but I don’t think you’ll be too mad. This recipe is actually for chewy energy bites, not cookies, but they’re made with the Danish butter cookie in mind. The best part of this recipe is you can add all sorts of mix-ins and flavorings! (Check the recipe for details.)

#12: Low Carb Cookies

(by Real Balanced)

If you just want a simple but delicious low carb cookie recipe, this one’s the one! Unlike many of the other recipes I’ve shared with you that use Swerve as a sweetener, this one uses (sugar-free) golden monk fruit sweetener, which you’ll learn about on the recipe page.

#13: Low Carb Snickerdoodle Cookies

(by Real Balanced)

Like the low carb cookie recipe above, this one also uses monk fruit sweetener. In addition to the cookie itself containing it, it’s also mixed with cinnamon to serve as the tasty snickerdoodle coating. (Mmmm. Sounds amazing!)

#14: Chewy Keto Pecan Cookies

(on I Breathe, I’m Hungry; guest post by Sugar Free Londoner)

These ketogenic cookies contain only five ingredients, making them simple and easy to whip up any time you have a craving for something sweet. As you might guess, the star of the show is pecans, ground and mixed with four other ingredients. You can also top each one with a pecan half to pretty them up!

#15: Ket-Oreos

(by The Primitive Palate)

First I gave you tagalongs, and now I’m giving you oreos. Does life get any better than that? Not only are these keto oreos insanely delicious (and kind of adorable, to be honest), each one contains less than one gram of net carbs.

#16: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Cookies

(by Divalicious Recipes)

Looking at the photo, you might think these keto cookies are hard. (I don’t know about you, but I don’t really care for hard cookies.) Thankfully, if you thought that, you’d be wrong. They’re soft and chewy! With ingredients like pumpkin, cream cheese, and butter, their soft nature makes sense.

#17: Soft n’ Chewy Low Carb Cookies

(by yours truly, Forget Sugar Friday)

It’s okay; you can say it. My food photography skills need some work. However, I can assure you that this recipe doesn’t need workβ€”it creates a delicious, soft, and chewy cookie that you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again. (I may have eaten three in one sitting. Okay, maybe four.)
