These keto triple chocolate cookies have to be the chocolatiest cookies I’ve ever made. They are rich, soft, fudgy, and slightly chewy. Truly, these were created for a true chocolate lover enthusiast. It’s a must-have cookie recipe for anyone doing the keto diet looking for a way to satisfy a chocolate craving dead in its tracks.
Trust me when I tell you that this low carb chocolate cookie is one that the entire family will beg you to make, even if they are not doing a ketogenic diet. Made with cocoa powder, baking chocolate, and sugar-free chocolate chips this cookie recipe will make a believer of keto out of anyone.
Look I could have easily stopped with only two forms of chocolate for this keto cookie, but why if we can have a triple effect of chocolate goodness?
It’s one recipe you’ll want to add to your snack rotation. I also invite you to check out our keto chocolate cream cheese cookies and for that matter our entire keto cookie collection to help keep your sweet tooth cravings at bay.
Keto Triple Chocolate Cookies
The making of these triple chocolate cookies will require that you melt baking chocolate, sugar-free chocolate chips, and butter. I do so gently over a double boiler. But once that step is done, it’s smooth sailing.
Then in a separate bowl, I combine the cocoa powder, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, a dash of salt and a little instant coffee powder. The coffee is added to enhance the flavor of chocolate but feel free to leave it if you are making this for the kiddos.
Once the chocolate and butter mixer has cooled, then comes the addition of eggs and the sugar substitute. At this point, it’s just a matter of combining the wet and dry ingredients and folding in the sugar-free chocolate chips.
Probably the most challenging part of this keto triple chocolate cookie is having to wait for the cookie dough to chill for a minimum of 30 minutes.
This keto cookie recipe is basically a chocolate crinkle cookie recipe. Meaning it’s crispy on the outside and moist and rich in the inside. You can also sprinkle some sugar-free confectioners sugar to the top for another festive variation.

The following are the ingredients you’ll need:
Note that the full printable recipe is at the bottom of the post. But I hope you stick around and get all the tips to ensure you get the same predictable results.
- Baking chocolate
- Cocoa powder, dark
- Sugar-free chocolate chips
- Unsalted butter
- Coconut flour
- Almond flour
- Vanilla extract
- Instant coffee
- Sea salt
- Sugar-substitute, Lakanto granulated
When it came time to pick the brands I wanted for the baking chocolate, I went with the classic easy to find Baker’s brand. Why? because it’s consistently good. There is no need to go for the premium price tag when this brand works perfectly.
Since I wanted these cookies to have a deep chocolate flavor, I opted for a dark process cocoa but you can use regular cocoa if you prefer.
As far as what sugar-free chocolate chips to use, I always go for Lily’s stevia-sweetened chocolate. Hands down it’s my favorite sugar-free chocolate chip choice. But you can also use Hershey’s sugar-free chocolate chips.
The Tools You’ll Need
Sugar Substitute Options
When it comes to choosing which sugar-substitute to use for these chocolate cookies, I have several options for you.
Like I listed earlier my go-to choice is Lakanto Monk Fruit because the texture and flavor are what I have found to be the closest tor real sugar and because there is barely any aftertaste.
Having said that, I’m also partial to the brand Swerve which is an erythritol blend. Similar to Lakanto it uses sugar alcohols and has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.
Personally, I don’t like using stevia because I am sensitive to the aftertaste and in chocolate recipes, the bitterness can be magnified. The exception is Lily’s chocolate that is stevia-based and yet has zero bitterness. I truly have no idea how they do it.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success.
You will want to use the Splenda that has a bulking agent. It’s the one that comes in larger bags. I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product and will be too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly.
Magnesium In Chocolate
Did you know that there is evidence that we can benefit from enjoying dark chocolate in our diet? That’s because it actually contains a nice amount of magnesium, an essential mineral our bodies need to function properly.
Coming in at 176 mg in a 100 g serving, it’s a great way to add a little more magnesium in our diet. It sounds to me like yet another great excuse to enjoy these low carb chocolate cookies.
In addition to magnesium, dark chocolate contains a specific group of antioxidants called flavonoids. Flavonoids are great for our hearts by lowering LDL cholesterol, increase blood flow and lessen the threat of blood clots.
If I could have a chocolate snack every day that doesn’t kick me out of ketosis this girl is all in. My goal is to create low carb recipes that help make the keto diet a delicious breeze.
Otherwise staying committed becomes a major chore and quitting becomes inevitable. And that is not an option for many of us. So if I can help it, I will do my best to offer solutions like these keto-friendly cookies.
Long gone are the days when I used to load my holiday table with high carb sugar overflowing desserts. If you join us for the holidays, you’ll find options for dessert like this low carb pecan pumpkin pie instead.
I sure hope you will give this chocolate cookie 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.

Join Our Jesus And Keto Movement
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 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. We invite you to join our Private Facebook Group and see if it’s not the key you have been missing.
Note that once you click the link you will be prompted to answer a few questions that ensure that you understand what this group stands for.
