You may have guessed that this girl L O V E S chocolate. In fact, I’ve dedicated an entire category to keto chocolate recipes
It seems like I am always gravitating to chocolate when I’m in the mood to make a dessert. It’s not that I don’t enjoy other flavor profiles but chocolate always seems to find me.

Keto Fudge Flourless Cookies
This challenge was conquered. What challenges do you speak of Hilda? That of creating a true keto fudge flourless cookie.
I want you to know that for a while now I kept attempting to make a flourless cookie that was low in carbs and keto friendly. I wasn’t challenging myself to create a keto chocolate cookie that used alternative flours. No, I wanted a zero flour option.
You would think it would have been somewhat easy to make a flourless cookie using only low carb ingredients. But that my friends isn’t the case.
Here’s the thing, in a traditional chocolate flourless cookie recipe, you are simply combining powdered sugar, some egg whites, and cocoa powder.
Logically, you could conclude that swapping the powdered sugar for a sugar substitute would mean success. The kind of success that allows you to put your feet up, eat your flourless keto fudge cookies and call it a day.
Unfortunately, life is just not that easy. It was a nice fantasy but not one that would manifest for a L O N G time for this girl.
So I kept searching for the right combination of keto ingredients that would produce the PERFECT keto chocolate fudgy flourless cookies. And just when I was about to give up on this elusive idea, inspiration landed on my lap.
Stay with me for this, you’re gonna want to read how my keto fudge flourless cookies were finally birthed.

Connecting With Our Readers
Recently, I had Jaime Markovic, my keto buddy from Instagram, reach out to me about how she tweaked my Keto Fudge Pie recipe. In fact, you can thank her for giving me the inspiration I needed to finally create a keto fudge flourless cookie.
Hilda, I have to tell you what I did…doubled the keto fudge pie filling recipe. The store was out of bakers chocolate so I used some 100% dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s instead. I also added a dash of vanilla and baked only the filling in a 8X10 pan, like when one would do for brownies. I then cut them into little squares and dusted them with powdered sugar substitute. Then I hid them from kids. They are sooo good!! Again, thanks for the recipe.
That lovely comment opened the doors for me to ask her for details. I wanted to know what her creativity actually produced. I asked Jaime if using only the filling of the keto fudge pie produced a cookie, a brownie or a cross between the two?
As far as I can tell from our conversation, Jaime came up with her own little keto gem, a type of brownie that had a mousse-like texture. She did exactly what I tell people all the time to do, she customized my recipe and made it fit her needs.
Jaime opted to not make the crust of my keto fudge pie, and ended up with an entirely new dessert.
It’s brilliant because I understand that not everyone has the time to make a dessert that includes a keto crust or has all the ingredients on hand to execute a recipe exactly. So why not run with your own inspiration?
But Jaime Got Me Thinking…
Jaime’s ingenuity got me pondering the possibility of using the base of my keto fudge pie filling as a launching pad for keto fudge flourless cookies.
What if with just a couple more tweaks I could finally conquer a true keto flourless cookie? I didn’t know what to expect, but I was way too curious not to try.
After all, most of the recipes that are now a favorite here started as an experiment. A willingness to take a few risks in that keto kitchen of mine.
A Real Keto Fudge Flourless Cookie
Now, I realize that there are quite a few good flourless cookie recipes out there. But what makes this one standout, is that it’s also keto friendly. AND….. that it does not use any nut butter, nut flours or even coconut flour.
That my friends, I did not find out in the keto universe. Maybe I am wrong but I checked and checked and checked some more and kept coming up empty-handed.
My keto fudge flourless cookies don’t just avoid high carb gluten loaded flours, it doesn’t use any of the common traditional low carb flour options. This means it’s coconut flour and almond flour free.
Without any flour whatsoever you may be asking yourself how does this cookie hold up? Well, perfectly.
How? What gives it, it’s structure?
You see these keto fudge flourless cookies may not have any form of flour or flour alternatives, but what it does have is a heavy dose of chocolate. You’re welcome chocolate lovers. Why don’t we take a quick moment and say a blessing over Jaimie’s life for this amazing inspiration?
Keto Fudge Cookies Are Rich In Flavor, Yet Low In Carbs
Just one bite of these keto flourless cookies, and you’ll understand my enthusiasm. Be prepared to experience an explosion of guiltless rich chocolate flavor.
They are glossy and near black in color due to the overwhelming amount of chocolate goodness in them.
In fact, it was a bit of a mission to photograph them perfectly for you. Thankfully our beautiful daughter Michelle came to her mama’s rescue and was able to capture the richness of these flourless gems.
When I told Jaimie my idea, she was a true sweetheart and encouraged me to go for it. With Jaime’s brilliant idea safely in my back pocket, I had the courage to tweak that pie filling recipe and make a fabulous cookie for you to also enjoy.
All I did was I add 1/3 cup unsweetened dutch processed cocoa powder to the dough mix. That little extra cocoa powder was the magical key that transformed the keto fudge pie filling and made it into a keto flourless cookie option.

I also chose to add hazelnuts and stevia sweetened chocolate chips to the keto cookie batter, because I just couldn’t help myself.
However, this recipe doesn’t need any nuts to make it work. So for my friends who cannot consume any nuts, you are free to leave them out. Or you could use any other nut option if you prefer.
These cookies are super rich and extra fudgy and one cookie will satisfy even the most intense chocolate craving.
