Soft & Fluffy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Keto | Sugar Free | Grain Free | LCHF)

These soft and fluffy keto chocolate chip cookies are easy to make and ridiculously delicious! This is a true family favorite recipe that produces the perfect cookie every single time!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies…

I have always loved cooking, but it wasn’t until I started this keto lifestyle that I realized my passion was actually baking! It’s funny looking back on where I was a year ago, to where I am today. I could follow recipes and bake up some yummy treats (for the most part), but I never thought that I would ADORE baking everyday and developing my own delicious recipes!

One thing you guys should know about me is, I only post recipes I am 100% confident with it. I will try out a recipe 20-30+ times before I share it with you all, just so you guys have the best of the best!

So, like many of my other recipes, I have worked on perfecting the ultimate soft and fluffy chocolate chip cookie. This recipe has been tried and tested by yours truly several times and the results are wonderful! These cookies always come out soft, fluffy, perfectly sweet and incredibly delicious!

However, let me warn you guys…they are binge-worthy! They are SO good, that it is almost impossible to stop at just one (but don’t worry, I won’t judge you if you sneak in a couple before sharing with the family!)

Endless Flavor Options…

Who doesn’t love jazzing it up? The flavor options with this recipe are endless!

For instance, I sometimes add orange zest and orange flavoring to my batter for a classic chocolate-orange treat. I also like adding in some different textures like almonds, hazelnuts or coconut for a nice bite in my cookies. With this as your basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, you can have fun and get creative baking up batches of these cookies that specifically suit your taste buds!

Reliable Recipe…

This easy and reliable recipe is easily one of my family’s favorite treats…but it didn’t work out perfect the first time I tried them. So, after baking and eating an incredible amount of chocolate chip cookies, I wanted to share with you all the crucial factors involved in nailing these perfect cookies.

Crucial Factors…

  • Don’t over mix – Yes, I am sure you have read this in hundreds of cookie recipes..but it is so true! Folding your wet ingredients into your dry ones are essential for not making your cookies dense.
  • Don’t over bake – Another classic instruction in mastering cookies. Cookies really don’t need a great deal of baking time because they usually only have 1-2 eggs in the recipe. They will continue to cook after you have taken them out the oven, so if you over bake them, then they will dry out…and no-one like a dry cookie!
  • Don’t squish the dough – Some cookie recipe require you to flatten the dough rounds before you bake them, this recipe doesn’t! Keep the cookie dough round raised up for a softer, cake-y texture.
  • Chill the dough – Chilling the dough is crazy important. Chilling the dough allows all the ingredients to bind together AND prevents the cookies spreading out too much whilst baking.
  • Use room temperature eggs – Ok, so confession, I never used to follow this step when it came to recipes. Why, you ask? Because my eggs are always in the refrigerator, and I would be too lazy, forgetful or impatient to take them out in time. So please, Don’t repeat my mistakes! If a recipe calls for room temperature eggs, and your eggs are still in the refrigerator, here’s an easy way to raise their temperature FAST! Simply, place them in a bowl of warm water for 3 minutes and voilà…room temperature eggs! This means BETTER COOKIES!
