Low Carb Chocolate Cookies


*Low Carb* These recipes have been created to provide a delicious treat with less than 5g of available carbohydrates per serve.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 12-18 minutes
Makes: 800g cookie dough
Serves 20 cookies
Difficulty Level medium



  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup Lakanto Brown Sweetener
  • ¾ cup gluten free white flour
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • ½ tsp bi carbonate soda
  • 1/4 tsp xanthum gum
  • pinch salt
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp butterscotch essence 
  • 2-3 tbsp almond milk (to bind)
  • 6 tbsps Lakanto Chocolate Crumb (4 tbsps in the mix - 2 tbsps for sprinkling over the top of the cookie before baking)

OPTIONAL - 2 tbsp Lakanto Chocolate Topping

If you're looking to take your low carb, vegan, and gluten-free cookies to the next level, consider adding a decadent topping of Lakanto chocolate. This indulgent addition will bring a rich and velvety texture to your cookies, elevating them into a truly irresistible treat. 


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a large-size bowl, add all the dry ingredients and 4 tbsps of the chocolate bits and mix until combined.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl and mix until the mixture forms a soft dough and can be pinched between two fingers and stays together. Add more milk if necessary.
  4. Carefully roll the dough into a tight log shape and place into the fridge for 20 minutes to firm up.
  5. Once chilled cut the log into 6-10mm slices and place on a baking tray.
  6. Bake the cookies for 12-18 minutes or until the edges are crisp. If you bake your cookies for a shorter amount of time, they will be crisp on the outside and like a brownie on the inside. If you bake your cookies for a longer time, they will be crisp all of the way through.
  7. Enjoy cookies immediately. Alternatively, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 1 month.


If you have some Lakanto Chocolate Topping add a couple of tbsps to each mix instead of additional almond milk.
