This time she wanted a Keto chocolate chip cookie option.
If you’ve seen our recipe for Michelle’s Keto Brownies, then you know she likes to raise the keto baking bar on her momma.
I don’t mind a challenge, in fact, I kind of welcome it. Why? Because it forces me to bring my A game.
Bring it on Michelle!
Here’s the thing, when it’s one of my children who is presenting me with a challenge, I kind of feel the pressure and become even more determined.
Not only do I want them to be proud of their momma, but it’s a chance to teach them to bravely embrace opportunities and not to shy away from them.
Plus as far as I’m concerned, a little friendly competition is good for the character.
When Michelle dared me to create a brownie recipe that could rival her cherished traditional one, I delivered what we now consider our best keto brownie.
At the time I was pretty intimidated with the prospect of creating something that would meet her high standards. Thankfully, I didn’t disappoint her.
Don’t get me wrong we have several great brownie recipes, including our first, that also happens to be a nut-free option. So do check those out too.
Confidently Braving Another Keto Baking Challenge
Feeling rather confident I boldly asked her to throw me another keto baking challenge. I wanted to see if doing so would motivate me to produce another great treat for you all.
Ok mom, then why not create a keto chocolate chip cookie recipe? I’ve checked and I don’t see one on the blog? You have a low carb chocolate chip cookie bar recipe, but where are your ketosis chocolate chip cookies?
Ugh she got me! Seems like Michelle knows me well, because I will admit that I had been avoiding a low carb chocolate chip cookie recipe for awhile now.
Why was I shying away from a ketosis chocolate chip cookie recipe? For fear that it would not turn out perfectly.
So I admit, that I don’t like failing. But who do you know that does?
With another keto baking challenge issued, I had to face my fears and not disappoint her. After all, I’m still trying to teach my children to not be afraid of taking risks.
Just because they are now grown adults doesn’t mean I I’ve stopped looking for teachable moments.
Converting Recipes To Keto
Once I stopped second guessing myself, I rolled up my sleeves, said a prayer and began to experiment.
Oh you think I am joking when I say I pray before I create my recipes? Well know this, if it weren’t for my prayer life, not a single recipe or post would ever be shared. Because this girl leans heavily on her Christian faith to make things happen.
Here’s the thing, if I was going to share a recipe for ketosis chocolate chip cookies, I wanted to make sure that they would be exceptional. I didn’t want them to be average.
My first attempt at making a low carb, keto chocolate chip cookie was good, the taste was definitely there.
But it was not exactly what I was looking for. Mainly, because the cookie didn’t have the right structure.
AND remember, I also had the added pressure that I wanted to impress Michelle. So, I had to aim higher. This was after all a challenge.
If At First You Don’t Succeed…
You should know that it’s very important to me that my ketosis recipes are easy to execute and turn out as promised. I never want to hear that a recipe I have posted has failed to deliver.
Besides the obvious embarrassment, the idea of perfectly good keto ingredients landing in the trash, really is not cool with me.

So I went back to the drawing board in an attempt to perfect my recipe for ketosis chocolate chip cookies.
My second attempt at creating the ultimate ketogenic chocolate chip cookie recipe proved to be the winner. Yay me!
This time I decided to add a tablespoon of gelatin powder to help give the cookie a little added structure. Guess what? It worked!
My keto chocolate chip cookies include an added tablespoon of sugar-free pancake syrup. Why? I was trying to get the brown sugar flavor profile without having to use the extra carbs from say something like molasses.
It also features Surkin Gold, a brown sugar-free substitute. This stuff is amazing and one I will use more in coming recipes. 😉

There are times that our low carb keto lifestyle can use a little assistance.
This is especially the case when starting a keto diet or when you hit a weight plateau.
We recommend the use of exogenous ketones as a tool to boost your ketone levels.
It is not a replacement for doing well-formulated ketogenic diet, but simply a tool to train your body to use ketones as fuel.
Keto//OS is the brand we use and what we share with our local community group.
Scientific Studies On The Benefits Of Ketosis
If you are wanting to do a keto diet effectively, don’t forget to test your ketone levels. Although ketone strips work well initially, the Gold standard is the blood ketone test. This test is taken just like the glucose test that diabetics use to track their sugar levels.
After 10 seconds the ketone meter will give you an accurate reading. Testing is not necessary in order to do a ketogenic diet, but it is the best way to know if you are truly in ketosis. Allowing you to better tweak your macros in order to see real progress.
Perhaps what you need is to participate in a keto challenge. The Keto reboot is a 60 hour program that can help you reach your ketosis goals faster by combining intermittent fasting with ketone supplementation. Read more about the Keto Reboot Here.
