Keto Crackle Cookies

When Christmas is just around the corner, and all the keto cookie recipes in the world are simply not enough for you, here are the chewy, yummy, chocolatey, nutty keto crackle cookies! I’ve baked these for every friend I’ve got out there this year, and every single one of them was delighted.

It is funny that most of my friends have no idea these are keto-friendly. When they ask what’s inside, almond flour sounds like magic to them. It’s so much fun seeing those sweet smiles on their faces.

Keto Crackle Cookies are crispy on the outside but tender inside

Just like most of us in certain life situations, Keto Crackle Cookies get firm on the outside but remain nice and tender on the inside. This is what I like the most about them, besides the flavor. The recipe calls for all-spice only, but I love adding a tad of other spices, like cinnamon, ground cloves, and maybe even a little rum around Christmas time. Keto Crackle Cookies are, however, meant to be eaten year round.

How to make Keto Crackle Cookies

  • Melt chocolate using a microwave or a water bath.
  • Using an electric mixer, mix softened butter, low-carb sweetener, and vanilla extract.
  • Mixing continuously, add eggs. Then, add melted chocolate and heavy cream and combine.
  • Sift in almond flour, salt, baking powder, allspice, and cocoa powder into the butter mixture.
  • Using a rubber spatula, combine the mixture forming a uniform batter.
  • Stir in chopped walnuts. Knead the dough with your hands.
  • Cover with kitchen foil and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C) and line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Using your hands, form 40 round 1-inch cookies. Roll each in powdered sweetener mixed with egg white. Place the cookies 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. When done baking, the cookies will be soft and tender. Let them cool for 5 minutes before transferring on a cooling rack.

NOTES:

  • Powdered Low-Carb sweetener usually doesn’t work as well as powdered sugar in making the Keto Crackle Cookies white on the outside. For better results, try rolling each cookie in a mixture of egg white and powdered sweetener before baking.
  • Cookies are tender when hot but will get crisp on the outside and tender on the inside when cooled.

Something weird about the recipe …

To be honest, I had to try a few batches before finally succeeding in actually baking Keto Crackle Cookies. The taste and texture were terrific every single batch, but I just couldn’t seem to get those beautiful crackles that you can see on other’s non-keto crackle cookies recipes. I finally got decent crackles when I made sure that the cookies went into the oven very cold, while the oven had to be heated up properly.

Another thing is that I could hardly get my cookies to look white. Powdered sweetener like erythritol would always just get absorbed into a cookie. When I mixed it with egg white first, it made it stick to the surface and remain relatively white when baked. Another side effect of this trick is that the cookies get even extra crunch from the glazing.

What is your favorite Keto Cookies recipe?

While Keto Crackle Cookies might just be your favorite keto cookie recipe, I’d like to know if there’s some other cookie recipe that you’ve been missing on the keto diet. At your disposal, there’s Gingerbread Cookies recipe at hand for the Christmas holiday season. Moreover, there Fragrant Keto Cookies are one of my favorite. Plus, when I or somebody else in our household craves for shortbread cookies, there’s a quick recipe for those, too. Last but not least, classic Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies are the simplest and the best for quick sweet indulgence! In the end, all the cookies are just too good!

  1. hi
    thank you for the recipe i tried them today it turned out so delicious in taste but all flat i don’t know why i followed the recipe please the instructions from A to Z.

    • It is really hard to say what went wrong from a distance. I can just make some blind guesses. Maybe the baking powder didn’t work (out of date?) or maybe the mixing of the butter + sweetener wasn’t done for long enough (for at least 3 minutes until the mixture is creamy and almost fluffy). I hope it turns out better for you the next time!

    I am a little confused where in the nutrition count it states 40 servings and in the directions it says to make 30.

    • My Sweet Keto

      My bad. I made smaller cookies the first time and a bit bigger the next. The nutritional info stands for the bigger version, so 30 cookies.

  3. Vanilla wafers are my downfall. I tried a Keto recipe and it just didn’t taste right. Do you know of a good one?

  4. Hi,

    Please help me understand why you are using ml instead of grams? How do you measure 118 ml of butter? We know that 100 ml of water weighs 100 g, but it is not the case with solids or liquids other than water, as they vary in density. In metric system, it makes more sense to measure solids by weight instead of volume.
    The recipe sounds great, by the way, and I am planning on making it by using US cup measures, although grams would be more precise.

      Hi, Susan,
      This is what the recipe plugin does automatically once you convert cups and spoons into metric units. Unfortunately.
      As there are mainly visitors from the states on the site, I make recipes user-friendly for them, using cups and spoons when a recipe isn’t too delicate.

  5. What kind of dark chocolate do you use and is it sweet,Simi sweet, or unsweetened?

  6. So you roll cookies into the egg white first, then roll in the powdered sweetener?

    • My Sweet Keto

      Sorry if I wasn’t clear enough in the instructions, but it is better to mix the egg white with the sweetener (I do it with a small S-blade food processor) then roll the cookies in that.
