Five Minute Magic Keto Cookies – Low Carb, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, THM S
I love simplifying recipes. As a mom of four with number five arriving within the next month simple is key. I love my Magic Cookie Bars and I consider them a fairly easy recipe but the prep for those is about 25 minutes when you consider having to cook the sweetened condensed milk. And then that’s an additional pot to wash. I wanted a simpler version for when I don’t already have a batch of condensed milk ready to go in the fridge.
These magic keto cookies are so easy and flavorful. The taste exactly like Magic Cookie Bars without the crust. They are going to be my new go-to dessert to hide in the back of my fridge where my kids can’t find them.
Feel free to customize these keto cookies to your tastes. Don’t like walnuts? Use pecans. Don’t like coconut? Use extra nuts. The main thing is to have 1.5 cups of mix-ins. I’m planning on trying these with white chocolate and unsweetened dried cranberries this fall.
Feel free to use different nuts, chopped milk chocolate, or any other type of yummy sugar-free sweet in these magic keto cookies.
If you cut back on the chocolate and sweetener you can also make this into a granola type cereal. It is similar to my granola recipe here.
Note: Don’t be disturbed when they look like this coming out of the oven. Just trim off the excess and enjoy your cookies. And go ahead and eat what you trimmed. It tastes like vanilla custard. You can also bake these in greased aluminum cupcake papers to avoid this step.
UPDATE: Since posting this recipe I have had readers make these keto cookies in a muffin tin and aluminum cupcake liners to avoid the runoff of the custard.

- Preheat oven to 350.
- Stir together the butter and coconut cream until smooth. Add the sweetener and egg yolks. Mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients. Scoop onto a parchment lined baking sheet to form 12 cookies. Press down to flatten the tops.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
*** You can buy small cans of coconut cream or refrigerate a can of full-fat coconut milk until it separates. For this recipe, you need the solid part of the coconut milk.
Notes on Sweeteners:
To sub in Swerve use 1.5 to 2 times the amount of sweetener called for.
