These Keto Chocolate Cookies are mini in size and dense in texture. They are the perfect dessert for the holiday season! You can serve them at Thanksgiving and Christmas, bring them to work for the office party or make a double batch and wrap them up to send to friends and family that you won’t be able to see this year.
Bite Sized Desserts
My fondest memories of growing up eating desserts always takes me back to eating mini snickers and twixes. Who doesn’t love mini anything? Mini hot sauce bottles, mini lotions for traveling, even mini people, aka babies!! So, of course the same applies for desserts and we’ve got a lot of mini desserts you’ll want to try out:
- Keto Sugar Cookie Cups
- Chocolate Fudge (Matt’s favorite dessert to store in the freezer for a nightly treat!)
- Mini Cream Puffs (the ultimate guilt free dessert)
To Spread Or Not To Spread
Coconut flour acts very different in the oven then most other flours, keto or not. It doesn’t spread on its own. This means that if you’re looking for a flat, thinner cookie you will have to spread it by hand prior to baking.
For these keto chocolate cookies in particular we intended them to be dense and fudgy so as you can see in the video we did not spread them. All we did was scoop them onto the cookie sheet and bake. However, if you prefer them to be mini flat cookies you can use the back of a spoon or your fingers to spread them to the size of your liking. Just be aware that this may result in a less brownie like cookie and more of a crispy chocolate cookie!
Cool Before Handling
This step is very important! If you are used to low carb/ketogenic baking than you most likely know how important the cooling step is to any baked goods. When you’re working with temperamental flours, such as coconut or almond, crumbling will occur if handled directly out of the oven, and these mini cookies are no different.
Always let them cool on the baking sheet for 15-20 minutes prior to transferring and serving! We won’t judge you if you sneak one warm right from the oven 🙂
