These keto cookies have a surprisingly chewy texture that I love! The addition of instant coffee helps to enhance the rich chocolate flavor, and with a cold glass of milk in hand, you are all set to go! I used a couple of tablespoons of keto peanut butter in this recipe. It is so much that it creates a strong peanut butter flavor, but it just adds a rich nutty element to the cookie dough. The cookies are studded with Lily’s brand chocolate chips for an extra treat. These chewy, rich, chocolate cookies are perfect for the low-carb chocolate lover in your life!

How To Make These Keto Cookies
You can melt your chocolate in the microwave, but you will need to be very careful not to scorch it! Using a double boiler helps prevent scorching. Most sets of pots and pans come with a double boiler, but if yours do not you can pick up a handy double boiler that will fit inside most standard sauce pots.
Two ingredients in this recipe that really elevate the flavor profile of this cookie recipe are the instant coffee (I won’t drink instant coffee, but I will bake with the stuff) and the keto peanut butter! You could use regular peanut butter, but this keto peanut butter, made with a blend of macadamia nuts, peanuts, and MCT oil, only has 2g of net carbs per serving! With the added MCT oil it is a great source of healthy fats making this keto peanut butter a perfect choice for keto dieters.
Pro Tip: When your cookie dough has come together, per the instructions in the recipe card below, place it in the refrigerator to chill! Don’t skip this step. Chilling your cookie dough means that it will start to bake before it starts to spread in the oven. This helps to create chewy cookies!! Sometimes if I am in a hurry, I will cut down my chilling time by giving the dough a few minutes in the freezer, and then finishing the chilling process in the fridge.

These cookies can be made using your preferred keto-friendly sweetener, but I almost exclusively use monk fruit these days. It does not produce a bitter aftertaste, or chemical and strange cooling sensation that some of the other options for sugar replacements do. I used Lakanto Granulated Monk Fruit Sweetener in this recipe.
