Cozy up this holiday season with this super easy Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. It’s the warm chocolate chip goodness that you’re used to, but it’s gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb since it uses almond flour, an all-natural sugar alternative, and sugar-free chocolate chips. Top this with a few scoops of your favorite ice cream or a drizzle of chocolate sauce.

Why Make This
- Easy: this recipe just requires you to mix the ingredients in a stand-mixer, press the dough in the skillet & bake
- Alternative for a range of ways of eating: this recipe skips on grains and added sugar, making it perfect for those who are looking for low-carb, grain-free, gluten-free, and keto Christmas cookie recipes.
- Bob’s Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flour: this is blanched and has the skins removed. I love this one because it is superfine – something that allows the finished cookie to have a texture more similar to cookies baked with regular flour.
- Bob’s Red Mill Xanthan Gum: this helps to give the cookie a bit of structure.
- Bob’s Red Mill Baking Powder
- Butter: I’m using the salted kind and prefer it for baked goods
- Keto Sweetener: I’m using the granular variety, but powdered would work as well
- Sugar-free Milk Chocolate Chips: these are available at most markets now in the baking aisle. I personally prefer milk chocolate, but you could also swap these for dark chocolate.
- Keto Sprinkles: I purchased these from Etsy. To keep with the Christmas theme, I covered them
- Avocado Oil Spray: I’m using this to grease the skillet, but you could also use butter or round parchment paper to help the cookie lift out of your pan easily
- Vanilla extract
- Sea Salt
How to Make Chocolate Chip Keto Skillet Cookies
- Cream together the butter and sweetener in a stand-mixer
- Add the eggs and continue to mix until incorporated
- Add the remaining ingredients and mix until the dough forms
- Press the dough in a cast iron skillet and bake
Top Cooking Tips & FAQs
- Use an 8-inch round cast iron skillet: this recipe works best in an 8-inch round cast iron skillet. If you use a larger round skillet, be sure to adjust the cook time.
- Create themed cookies for any occassion by adjusting the sprinkles: you can make these cookies fit any holiday by choosing festive colors for the sprinkles.
- Bake until the edges are browned: unlike regular chocolate chip cookies, an almond flour chocolate chip cookie won’t get as browned. Don’t be alarmed. Simply look for the edges of the cookie to get browned and the center to come out clean when poked with a toothpick.
