Mmm, cream cheese. Would it be a stretch to say that cream cheese makes the world a better place? 😉 With only 0.6g net carbs per tablespoon, it’s a great addition to any keto diet… and any keto diet cookie! Cream cheese can help make cookies more rich, moist, and flavorful, and I think we can all agree that cookies with those attributes are pretty darn good cookies!

In this post, I’ve rounded up five keto cookies recipes that contain cream cheese from our Keto Desserts. Even better, I’ve personally tried the first one (as of right now; the rest are on my to-make list!) and have added some of my feedback so you know what to expect when you make it yourself. Make sure to leave me a comment telling me which one(s) you try — I’d love to hear your feedback, too!

Keto Cream Cheese Cookies

Before we get to the cream cheese cookies, I wanted to quickly share a few of my favorite products that you’ll find in some of these recipes:

Swerve Confectioners: If you’re looking for a sugar substitute, you’ll love Swerve Confectioners! It uses (natural) sugar alcohols which have zero effect on blood sugar, meaning you can subtract them from the net carb count. (That gives Swerve zero net carbs.) It also measures just like sugar, so there isn’t any guessing about how much to use.

Anthony’s Almond Flour: Almond flour is in so many keto baked goods thanks to having only 2g net carbs per 1/4 cup. It’s a pantry must-have!

Terrasoul Coconut Flour: Coconut flour is also frequently used in keto baked goods. It’s a dense flour that will suck up a lot of moisture and can’t be substituted 1:1 with almond flour. So, it’s definitely best to have both almond and coconut flour on hand!

#1: Cookies with Chocolate Icing from Fit to Serve Group

Say hello to keto iced Chocolate Cream Cheese Cookies! I made these beauties and can attest to their chocolaty tastiness. Will I make them again? Definitely! Here are a few of my comments/tips about the recipe:

  • The cookies themselves aren’t super sweet. If you’re used to sugary sweet cookies, you may find them a bit intense. The icing adds a nice hit of sweetness though, so if you want a sweeter cookie experience, thinly spread the icing over the entire top rather than concentrating it on the center of the cookie.
  • The recipe says to be careful not to overcook the cookies. This is VERY important! Unfortunately, I didn’t get my timing quite right and ended up with cookies that were a bit burnt on the bottom and a touch dry. (But still tasty!) I pulled them out at 15 minutes (bake time is 15-20 minutes) and thought they seemed a bit undercooked on my toothpick up until minute 17, but by minute 18, they’d gone too long.
  • I used regular instant coffee rather than instant espresso. I didn’t have any instant espresso on hand, so I made do with regular instant coffee. (FYI, you add the actual granules, not liquid.) I liked the hint of flavor it gave to the cookies, but I suspect that instant espresso would have added a richer flavor.

  • Just made the easy cream cheese cookies by Wholesum Yum. They are pretty good. I think I would recommend adding a little more sugar (I use Sweet Like Sugar by Ketologie) to make it a little sweeter. I did drizzle some Choczero syrup on top too. Husband really liked him and he HATES cream cheese. Snuck it in on him. Ha!

    • Hi Andrea,

      Thank you for leaving your feedback! I’ll definitely add some more sweetener when I make them, and I LOVE the idea of adding Choczero syrup. Great idea! And good job on sneaking the cream cheese past your hubby… hah! 😉
