Ingredients in Keto Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have just 6 ingredients: cashew butter, monk fruit (could also use coconut sugar for paleo!), 1 egg, baking soda, vanilla chocolate.

No flour or butter needed! The cashew butter covers both of those, but keeps it keto!

Keto Chocolate

You have a few choices for keto friendly chocolate. Lily’s makes no sugar added dark chocolate chips and chocolate bars that are sweetened with stevia and low carb. (Not sponsored, just what I love!)

I love getting the whole bar and chopping it myself. The chocolate gets so much more melty that way! You could also use dark chocolate chips, which are lower in sugar.

Cashew Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 16 cookies 1x


  • 1 cup cashew butter
  • 1 cup monk fruit (or coconut sugar)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate (I like Lily’s or Enjoy Life brand)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350º with 2 oven racks closest to the center. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium size bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Use a medium size cookie scoop to scoop out the dough (1.5 tablespoon balls), placing them on the baking sheet with enough room to spread out.
  4. Bake for 9-10 minutes, until the edges are set and the centers are puffed. (The cookies will flatten and “crackle” as they cool) Cool for 10 minutes and enjoy! Particularly good with my homemade almond milk.
  5. Cookies will keep in an airtight container for 1 week, or in the freezer for 6 months.
