Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate Cookies, A Decadent Treat!

Keto Chocolate cream cheese cookies

These keto cream cheese chocolate cookies make the perfect low carb chocolate treat. They are low in carbs, gluten-free, sugar-free, and nut-free. 

What makes these keto cookies extra special is the rich chocolate glaze that tops them. And because these cookies are so decadent one cookie will satisfy your chocolate craving. If that’s not a winning low carb cookie recipe I don’t know what else is.



I created these low carb cream cheese chocolate cookies after so many 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.

I figured if you loved those other cream cheese cookies, you would embrace a chocolate one too. Thankfully, I was correct and today it’s helping people stay faithful to the ketogenic diet.  

And that my friend is what keeps this girl encouraged to keep coming up with keto recipes.

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 are unmatched. 

Make sure you remember to also check out our Keto Cream Cheese Recipes for other delicious recipes that feature cream cheese. And if that’s not enough I have a complete list of Keto Cookies that as a fan of cookies I encourage you to also visit.

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.

I am so grateful 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 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 se, 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.

How To Make Keto Cream Cheese Chocolate 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!

In order to make these keto cream cheese chocolate cookies, you will need the following basic ingredients:

NOTE: The full recipe and instructions are at the bottom of this post. 

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 sake, 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.

I sure hope you will give this recipe a try. Once you do, make sure you remember to tag us on Instagram and Facebook. It’s what keeps this girl encouraged to keep sharing and perfecting her recipes.

If there is one thing I particularly proud of sharing it’s how we combined our Christian faith with the keto diet.   

In case you don’t know, Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our entire lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation. 

Knowing firsthand the benefits of this decision we have created a closed Christian group that is using the keto diet to transform their lives.  I love how supportive and encouraging this group of believers is. It’s exciting to see how people are transforming their lives by combining this lifestyle with the Christian faith. 

The testimonies coming out of our Fittoservegroup is what motivates us to continue to share what we’ve learned. 

We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.

Keto Hack To Stay On Track

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 is 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.

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

    From a Pinterest pin, I came to your site for the cream cheese pound cake recipe and it came to these delicious looking cookies instead. I will search your site for it but I wanted to give you a heads up. And, thank you for your low-carb pioneering. We all appreciate you.

    • Hi Megan,

      Not sure why that happened but I apologize for this. Unfortunately, I have no way to correct this. But I appreciate you making me aware. Here is the link to the pound cake recipe So you can access it quickly. Hope you’ll find other great options while your here. Thanks again!

  2. For the butter , is it 1/2 for the dough and 1/4 for the icing? I’m a bit confused , ingredients calls for 1/2 cup . Thanks , Kami

    • Hi Kami, if you notice on the recipe card there are instructions for the cookie dough and cookie icing separately. The dough calls for 1/2 cup of butter and the icing calls for 1/4 cup. I hope this clarifies things for you.

  3. I just made these cookies and they are delicious. Any thoughts on the nutritional count if I decidet to omit the frosting next time.
