Keto No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

8 ratings

Cookies are delicious, but they are even better when they require no baking! These Keto no-bake chocolate cookies need only 20 minutes of active prep and six pantry-friendly ingredients to come together. Cream all the ingredients together, roll them into balls and press down with a fork to flatten and freeze. They make a delicious dessert and on-the-go snack to satisfy your cravings at any time.

Are no-bake cookies Keto-friendly?

Most traditional no-bake cookies aren't ideal for the Ketogenic diet because they have high amounts of refined sugar, oats, and nut butter that can add to their total carbs per serving. However, it is possible to make Low-carb, sugar-free no-bake cookies that still taste great and are just as satisfying. Most no-bake cookies are usually too soft without any element of crunch to them. These Keto no-bake chocolate cookies have the perfect balance of crunchiness and softness due to the addition of chopped walnuts to the soft cookie base.

How to store these Keto no-bake chocolate cookies?

Store these Keto no-bake chocolate cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. If left at room temperature for too long, the cookies may become too soft and difficult to handle. These cookies can also be frozen for 3 to 6 months. To freeze, place the cookies on a lined baking sheet in the freezer until solid. Then transfer them to a freezer bag and put them back into the freezer. To thaw the cookies, place them in a single layer on a lined baking sheet and rest at room temperature or in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

Can you make these Keto cookies nut-free and dairy free?

Yes, it is possible to make these Keto no-bake chocolate cookies nut-free and dairy-free. To make these cookies nut-free, replace the walnuts with sunflower and pumpkin seeds. For a non-dairy alternative, replace the cream cheese with seeds butter such as sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter, or coconut butter.

Can you customize this recipe?

Yes. This recipe requires very few ingredients that can easily be substituted with the ingredients you have. For the binding agent, which in this case is cream cheese, almond butter or peanut butter are good alternatives. To add crunch to the cookies, almonds and pecans are good options instead of walnuts. To make the cookies more decadent, adding some sugar-free dark chocolate chips is a good idea.

  • Step 1

    To a medium mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, sweetener, cocoa powder, desiccated coconut, and coconut flour. Whisk together the ingredients using a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer until creamy in texture. The mixture should have a uniform texture with no lumps.

  • Step 2

    Chop the walnuts into small pieces. Then, add the chopped walnuts to the cream cheese mixture. Mix to fully combine. Ensure the walnuts are fully coated in the mixture.

    Scoop the cookies using a mini ice cream scoop onto a sheet pan lined with baking paper. The mixture yields about 13-14 even balls. Roll the cookie balls between the palms of your hands before placing them onto the sheet pan. Use a fork to flatten the cookie balls to create a crosshatch pattern.

      Is there something I can substitute for the coconut? I hate coconut! 😞 but would really like to try these! Would ground flaxseed work??

        I think almond flour would work just fine or flax of you were looking for more fiber!

      Swerve Confectioners Sweetener or The Ultimate Icing Sugar Replacement by Swerve?

        The icing sugar would be best so the sugar won't be grainy in the cookie.

        When I first tasted these I wasn’t real sure about them but after sitting in the fridge over night they were irresistible👍

          I like these and super easy to make. I put in a tad more Stevia (i used the liquid form). Next time I will make with erythritol or swerve, just because I'm not a fan of the stevia aftertaste.
