  • Baking tray
  • Hand mixer


  • 1 ½ cup (150g) almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup (90g) granulated sweetener (erythritol and stevia blend), from Sukrin or Swerve
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 oz (90g) keto-friendly dark chocolate bar, cubed, or chocolate chips from Lilly's


  • Preheat the oven to 180C (360F).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, add the egg whites and half of the sweetener. Use a hand mixer to beat to stiff peaks.
  • In another bowl, add the soft butter and the rest of the sweetener - using the hand mixer, cream until fluffy and pale yellow. When done, add the butter mixture to the beaten egg whites, add vanilla extract, and mix together until fully combined.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix until no dry ingredients are left.
  • Add the chocolate chips and, using a spatula, mix well.
  • Scoop the dough (12-14 balls, depending on the size) onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper, leaving at least 3 inches of space in between.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool down on a baking tray. When slightly warm, place on a cooling rack to cool down completely before serving.
