We managed to recreate this classic holiday cookie to make it keto friendly. These Keto Chocolate Crinkle Cookies are so delicious, no one will miss the sugar and flour!
Granulated monk fruit -This naturally occurring sugar free sweetener works wonderfully in all kinds of baked goods thanks to its stability at high heats.
Powdered monk fruit – We use the powdered version of this sweetener on the outsides of the cookie. It helps create the crackly edges and makes the cookies look beautiful.
Almond flour – This gluten free flour also adds fat to the dough, making the keto Chocolate Crinkle Cookies taste even richer.
Prepare the cookie dough: Start by mixing the granulated monk fruit with vegetable oil. Then add eggs and vanilla extract followed by the dry ingredients. Be careful not to over stir.
Roll the cookies: Put the powdered monk fruit in a bowl. Separate the cookie dough into 20 balls and roll each one in the powdered monk fruit.
Bake: Place the balls of cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using a glass bottom or palm of your hand, press the dough down to flatten the tops (for even baking).
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
While the cookies are still warm, dust them with more powdered monk fruit. Let cool and enjoy.
Tips and Tricks
- Do not overbake. The cookies will look soft when you take them out of the oven but will continue to firm up as they cool.
- Lightly flatten the dough before baking. Use your palm or the bottom of a glass to gently press each ball of cookie dough into a disk.
- Store in the refrigerator. Keto Chocolate Crinkle cookies will stay good for one week if kept chilled.
You can make your own powdered monk fruit by pulsing the granulated version in the food processor. Process until it reaches the consistency of confectioner’s sugar.
Yes, these will keep well in the freezer for up to 30 days.
Absolutely! Feel free to fold some sugar free chocolate morsels or chopped nuts into the dough to customize your cookies.
