Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Cookies, A Decadent Treat!

 

Rich and decadent keto cream cheese chocolate cookies, the perfect low carb treat.

I created these keto cream cheese chocolate cookies knowing that if you loved my keto lemon cream cheese cookies, my keto orange cranberry cream cheese cookies, and my nut-free, egg-less keto cream cheese cookies, then you would also love these.

Can you tell that I am a huge fan of adding cream cheese to my keto baked recipes? But why is this? Well, because the creaminess and richness that it adds is unmatched.

Cream Cheese In Keto Baking

BUT…can I tell you that I didn’t start adding cream cheese to my cookie recipes, until I made eating low carb a lifestyle?

I began to use cream cheese in my keto baked goods to test a theory I kept toying with. I wanted to see if adding it to recipes like these keto cream cheese chocolate cookies, would add structure and moisture to my low carb recipes.

Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Cookies

Thankfully, my theory proved to be right and thus began my love affair with adding cream cheese to my keto baking strategy.

Of course without a doubt the star on the blog regarding cream cheese, is my recipe for low carb keto cream cheese pound cake. It’s a favorite not only on our site, but in the keto community.

You wouldn’t think that cream cheese would add such a great impact when baking with low carb keto flours. BUT… I’ve personally found that it really does help a lot with giving gluten-free items structure and flavor.

Learning this firsthand has come in handy when keto baking. Although not a must per say, it is a great option for those who have no problem with dairy.

The end result of these keto cream cheese chocolate cookies, is a recipe for soft-batch buttery cookies.

These are rich chocolate cookies that melt in your mouth, but that you can somehow still sink your teeth into. I hope that describes this cookie adequately.

You see the addition of cream cheese to low carb cookies, gives a deep richness to the cookie dough and frankly intensifies the buttery flavor.

How can you go wrong with more butter taste? You can’t. So enjoy my keto friends!

Embrace Healthy Fats

Keep in mind, that you must use the cream cheese that comes in a block and not the one that is spreadable. This is key to getting the right results with this keto cream cheese (chocolate) cookie recipe, or any of my other recipes that use cream cheese.

AND… for goodness sakes, use full-fat cream cheese. This is after all a keto recipe blog.

Do take full advantage of the rich ingredients that you can have on a low carb, keto plan instead of focusing on what you can’t have.

I think that’s a mistake that people make when they first embark on a keto diet. Instead of looking longingly at the list of not permitted ingredients, enjoy the rich list of keto foods that you can have.

You do know that all the flavor is in the fat right? It’s why when our country went low-fat they loaded up the food with sugar to compensate for the lack of flavor.

Ugh, how on earth did we fall for this big fat lie? Probably the worst health propaganda we bought. The consequences of which we are still dealing with.

I wonder 100 years from now what will the history books say about the way we shunned fat and made ourselves sicker by pouring sugar on everything? I do pray that the truth will set people free.

So, do yourself a favor and enjoy every bite of these keto cream cheese chocolate cookies knowing that the added healthy fats will help put you into a state of ketosis. And have the cookie in front of your non-keto friends to help spread the news of this wonderful life-giving lifestyle.

Keto Hack To Stay On Track

Experience the power of ketones with keto//OS

A tip we like to share is the use of exogenous ketones. Randy and I are able to enjoy higher in carb keto treats by using this supplement.

BUT…what are exogenous ketones? It simply means you are able to take ketones externally, rather than depending on your body alone to create them in the liver.

Why should you even consider taking exogenous ketones?

Especially if our body can make them? The answer is mainly to be able to get into ketosis and to remain in a fat-burning state.

It’s a great tool especially when you are first embarking on a keto diet. Or in the event you eat something that is higher in carbs and it kicks you out of ketosis.

For example Randy and I will have a serving of exogenous ketones after consuming healthy foods that are higher in carbs. We also take them for a boost of energy.

However, this does not mean that we advocate eating a diet full of junk, nor does it give a license to cheat.

You can’t  just take ketones exogenously and ignore what you eat. In our book, that is not being good stewards of our body and in the end can lead to poor eating habits.

On the contrary, we believe in combining the keto diet with our Christian faith for optimal results. For us its a lifestyle and you should know that what constitutes as “cheat” for us would be whole foods we don’t normally consume, like a serving of beans or sweet potatoes.

As far as which brand of exogenous ketones are best? We recommend Keto//OS.

Why? Because they were the first to bring them to market and the great testimonials coming from our community group alone speak for themselves. Not to mention that their MAX flavors taste amazing.

Keto//OS Details

KETO OS is based on a proprietary ketone energy technology that delivers advanced macro nutrients and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, and energy.

For detailed information on which plan of Keto//OS can best suit your needs read more about what each product has to offer.

To learn more about the science of how KETO//OS works I encourage you to watch this short video

To further learn how to experience ketosis I encourage to look at the scientific data coming out from sites like that of our friends from Ketogeniccom  or  The Ketogenic Bible

Testing Your Ketone Levels

Are you testing your blood level of ketones? It used to be prohibitive to test your level of ketosis on a regular basis. With each strip costing upwards of $5 dollars.

Thankfully, you can test your ketone levels on a consistent basis because of the Keto Mojo. The strips they use are only $1. This makes testing your ketones accurately a more viable option.
