Ready in just 30 minutes of time from start to finish, you can't go wrong with this simple low carb keto cookie recipe. Create, bake, and enjoy! With one 1 NET carb per serving, how can you not?!
When I think of white chocolate cookies, my mind immediately goes to these. I've been creating these homemade cookies now for years, and they're still at the top of my list. I've shared them with family and friends as well and get requests all the time to bring them to family functions and dinners. I'll happily do that because I love snacking on them, too.
I think that the added tartness of the raspberries paired with the sweetness of the chocolate chips is what really works so well. So many people tend to think that cookies just shouldn't have fruit, but once you make these, you're going to think differently.
If you're a fan of fruit in your cookies, make sure to try my Keto Lemon Cookies as well as my Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies, too. Both prove that a little bit of fruit flavor and sweetness really do go a long way!
Salted Butter - This recipe calls for salted butter so pay attention to the type you have. If you don't have salted butter, you can use unsalted but you'll want to add in a small pinch of salt.
Almond Flour - Use blanched almond flour for this recipe as it does a great job replacing all purpose flour in keto recipes.
Coconut Flour - The addition of coconut flour adds a better texture to the cookies than using almond flour alone.
Joy Filled Eats Sweetener - I love this sweetener and use it for all my baking needs. There is an option for a substitute and you can read more about that in the recipe card below.
Gelatin - Don't forget to add this as it gives the cookies their chewy texture!
Vanilla - Pure vanilla extract is my favorite. You could also use almond extract as well.
Sugar Free White Chocolate Chips - These taste so good and are the perfect sweet addition. I normally use ChocZero chips and you can save 10% off your order with code 'joyfilledeats'.
Freeze-Dried Raspberries - These are a bit tart but pair well with the other ingredients. Fresh or frozen raspberries are too wet to use in these cookies.
How To Make Raspberry and White Chocolate Cookies
This is a condensed version of the recipe. For the full recipe, scroll to the bottom for the entire list of directions and measurements of the ingredients.
Step One: Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.
Step Two: Combine the ingredients to make the cookie dough. Once mixed well, stir in the raspberries and chocolate chips carefully.
You can stir these in by hand so that you're careful and don't break them up.
Once you get the dough mixed together, you should see a good balance of colors with the red and white mixed in. The dough should be moist enough that it sticks together.
Step Three: Make 15 balls and put them on the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Use your hand to flatten them a bit. Make sure that you're leaving about 2-3 inches in between each cookie.
Step Four: Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 14-16 minutes. Once the edges start to golden, it's time to remove the pan and let the cookies cool completely.
They can cool the entire time on the cookie sheet or you can move them to a cooling rack after a few minutes of time.
If you decide that you want to add a topping to the cookies once you pull them out of the oven, a drizzle of melted sugar-free white chocolate chips can be a nice touch. Totally optional but a simple way to add even more sweetness.
Variations + Substitutions
Berries - If you have other freeze-dried fruit or berries, add them in. This is a simple way to change up the taste of these white chocolate raspberry cookies without having to alter the core of the recipe. Freeze-dried blueberries and strawberries are delicious in this recipe.
Chocolate chips - While I'm a huge fan of white chocolate chips, you can add in another flavor if you'd like. Milk chocolate and dark chocolate would be good choices, too.
Slivered almonds - While this will change the overall carb count, a few slivered almonds could add a nice texture and flavor to these cookies. If you don't want to mix them in, you can easily just add a few on top.
Cranberries - Swap out the freeze-dried berries for some sugar-free dried cranberries.
Sandwich Cookies - Double up on the raspberry flavor by sandwiching two of the cookies with some raspberry jam.
Can you use fresh raspberries in this recipe?
You can't. For this recipe to work, you need to use freeze-dried. Fresh or frozen raspberries will release liquid which will cause the dough to be soggy and not set up properly.
What does gelatin do to cookies?
Adding the gelatin ingredient to the cookies is a simple way to give the cookies that famous chew that we all need and love. You'll find that I add it to most of my keto cookies as a binder instead of using eggs. Using eggs in keto cookies can make them cakey instead of crisp or chewy.
How do you store leftover cookies?
These cookies can be stored at room temperature for a few days. But will last as long as 2 weeks in the refrigerator if you have them in an airtight container. You can freeze them for up to 3 months.
Can you freeze baked cookies?
Absolutely. Frozen baked cookies are a great way to make up a batch of homemade cookies and then save some for later. These white chocolate chip cookies are good frozen, too!
Expert tip: Put a couple of cookies in a freezer bag instead of all of them in one. That way, when you're ready for more, you can just pull out a small baggie to thaw and enjoy. It's quicker that way and helps to control your portions at the same time.
Keto Cookie Mix
Since I love baking, I love sharing those flavors and passion with others. You can make a cookie jar with all the ingredients layered in the jar beside the butter, instructions, a cookie scoop, and even a baking sheet as a gift for them to make on their own!
Or you can easily bake up a batch of these raspberry and white chocolate cookies and deliver them already baked.
