If you love chocolate chip cookies, you going to go crazy for this keto cookie recipe! These keto chocolate chip cookies are spiced up with a little cinnamon and dressed up with coconut and pecans to create an easy keto cookie that is completely freakin’ delish! Crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle, these cowboy cookies are my absolute favorite keto cookie…but don’t take my word for it!!
This keto cookie recipe and I have a love/hate relationship. They’re completely and utterly, everything I want in a cookie but keto friendly which is amazing! But, I’m a cookie junky and they’re so addictive…I can never eat just one!! For this reason, I reserve these keto cookies for special weekends or times of year like the holidays…or when I need a treat after a crazy busy week!
We’re almost into the official baking season, so I wanted to share this easy keto cookie recipe. Honestly, great cookie texture is hard to to come by in a keto cookie so this recipe has been a work in progress for sometime!
What is a Cowboy Cookie?
Well, I’m glad you asked! The Cowboy cookie is a take on the Ranger cookie and is basically a chocolate chip cookie that’s loaded up with oatmeal, coconut and pecans…yum right? In this Cowboy Keto Cookie recipe, the coconut really plays double duty, giving the feel of oatmeal and the flavor and moisture of coconut!
Making these easy keto cookies
These cookies could not be easier to make! As any great cookie recipe, this keto cookie recipe starts with butter. The butter gets creamed with a little almond butter and the sweetener. The almond butter lends great texture and help add a chewiness to these cookies. After that a mixture of almond and coconut flour along with powdered gelatin are added. The gelatin also helps add some chew to this keto cookie recipe.
Then all the goodies go into the bowl, unsweetened desiccated coconut, chopped pecans, sugar free chocolate chips and cinnamon! The addition of cinnamon compliments all the flavors perfectly and adds great warmth and flavor to the cookie. As you know, I’m a huge fan of Fiesta Brand Spices, but did you know they also have cinnamon? Yep!
The dough is scooped out onto a sheet pan, slightly pressed down and baked for a few minutes. The cookies will not spread much so you can fit 12 on a 11×17 sheet pan. Let the cookies cool on the pan and enjoy!
Around here, these cookies don’t last long but once cooled, store them in a covered container on the counter.
Paige has declared this the best keto cookie recipe so far and I have to say I agree completely. Full of flavor and texture from all those yummy additions, slightly crisp on the outside with a chewiness on the inside, this keto chocolate chip cookie recipe is a winner! About 1.2 net carbs per cookie!

Thanks for posting this recipe, I will be sure to make these. I enjoy your site.
Does this recipe call for baking powder or baking soda? Thanks.
The recipe calls for baking soda.
These are my favorite cookie! I use them for breakfast and as a treat!
Who doesn’t love cookies for breakfast?! Thank you!!
At 8 minutes at 350, the cookies were nowhere near done. Mine took closer to 15 minutes. Is the oven temp and estimated time in the recipe notes accurate? Do you use a convection oven? Mine is conventional. My oven temp might be slightly off like most, but not that much. Just curious. Thanks.
Hi Suzanne – Yes, I believe the time and temp are accurate. My cookies typically take about 8 minutes at 350 in a conventional oven and continue to cook on the hot pan when removed from oven. I prefer these cookies slightly under-baked. I’ve heard of no issues with the time or temperature but this is a good excuse to make a batch! Thanks for letting me know!
Thanks, Emilie. The flavor of these cookies is great. Next time I will try taking them out of the oven sooner and see if the 10 minute cooling time on the cookie sheet does the rest. At this point keto / low carb baking is always an experiment in my kitchen. But when I land on a good recipe like this, I’m determined to get it right. Thanks again.
I’m glad you liked them! I’m going to make a batch today and I’ll update my recommended cooking time if needed! All my best!
Loved the cookie. Question, per cookie does it have 12g carbs or 4.08? Thought the recipe mentioned both amounts.
Hi Kerry- They are 4.08 total carbs or 1.2 net carbs depending on which you use!
What can be used instead of the unflavored gelatin, or can we even make the recipe without the gelatin?
Hi Teri- I would just leave it out…the cookies will be a little less chewy in texture but still tasty as long as you don’t over bake!
