This is an very old recipe that I decide to remake. It was very tasty but since I’m eating low carb these days I had to tweak the recipe be more low carb than Paleo. These keto 5 ingredient chocolate chips cookies turned out so good and so easy and they took only 15 minutes.
What Are The 5 Ingredients?
The ingredients I used in the old Paleo recipe were: cashew butter, coconut sugar, an egg, baking soda and regular chocolate chips. So if you are more of a Paleo person just use the same quantities of these ingredients.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Next add in your chocolate chips. I like ChocZero chocolate chips because they are very low carb and taste great. Lily’s chocolate chips are also a good brand of low carb chocolate chips. You could also take a high cacao dark chocolate bar and chop it up in place of the chocolate chips.
Then you just put spoonfuls on a cookie sheet lined with a silicon mat or parchment paper. The dough is pretty sticky but you’ll be able to finesse it.
I used a tablespoon to scoop out the batter and then flattened and shaped them a bit with my hands. They did spread a bit but not too much.
Now just bake them in a 375°F degree oven for about 8-10 minutes. Let them cool for 5 minutes and enjoy!
Original Paleo Grain Free Cookie Version
Below you can see the original version of this recipe that used cashew butter and coconut sugar. They were very good too. They had a lighter color and the flavor is very good as well. The nutritional information for 1 Paleo cookie is:
110 cals / 8g fat / 9.6g carbs / 2.1g fiber / 3.1g protein = 7.5g net carbs
Both versions of the cookies are very good for how easy and quick they are to make. If you want a slightly more complicated but even better tasting one, try these keto chocolate chip cookies.
I think I will keep making these keto 5 ingredient chocolate chip cookies and not the Paleo version because they taste great and have less carbs.
Note that both recipes only make 10 cookies but you could easily double it. Also it’s more of a chewy cookie than a crunchy one. Enjoy!
