Love homemade gooey chocolate chip cookies?

If you’re trying to cut down on sugar but wanting to incorporate a yummy treat once in a while, you’ll want to bookmark this delicious recipe for sugar-free chocolate chip cookies. The result is a soft and sweet chocolate chip cookie using Russell stover stevia-sweetened chocolate baking chips, granulated monk fruit, and brown Swerve.

Need a recommendation for sugar-free chocolate chips?

I used Russell Stover chocolate baking chips from the new Stevia sweetened line of chocolate candy, and we really enjoyed them in these soft chocolate chip cookies! The taste was pretty much comparable to traditional chocolate chips I thought, so why not make small swaps like this when you can?!

Also, this recipe is based on the back of their bag of chocolate chips but I used my favorite sweeteners and nuts to make it perfect for my family.

Tips for making the best sugar-free chocolate chip cookies:

  • I’ve tried quite a few sugar-free sweeteners but have my favorites when it comes to sweetening dessert recipes. I have been loving Lakanto classic granulated monk fruit as a stand-in for traditional sugar and it does a great job in baking.
  • A really great brown sugar substitute to try is Swerve brown. I use it all the time on our keto site Hip2keto.com when sweetening recipes. It’s so good.
  • These cookies are a bit more fragile than traditional, so I recommend baking them on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet to avoid sticking.

Now for the real taste-test!

My kids are generally picky about sugar-free baking and keto baking, but these have their stamp of approval! I loved them as well, and it was so hard not to just eat the cookie dough! 😂 They taste super similar to a regular sugar-filled chocolate chip cookie.

We loved these soft and sweet sugar-free chocolate chip cookies, and I really think your family will, too!

    That is so wrong. Cookies should be sweet and full of sugar. I like the monk sugar in my coffee in the morning though sometimes I use stevia too.

    Thanks for this recipe! I plan to give it a try. As a 33 yr Type 1 Diabetic, it’s always great to find a few recipes that I can use & still try to stick with my plan! I love cookies 🍪 but know that I can’t eat them, even only occasionally!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh good, I hope this was helpful and that you enjoy them!

    If you are diabetic the 2 cups of flour can’t possibly be good for you. Maybe try a low carb cookie recipe for diabetics.

  4. Eirlys Matson

    Are these soft and chewy? Or hard

    • Suek

      Dry and cakelike

  5. Lynette

    Okay my son has sugar intolerance but can do regular flour. He loves these ( age 11) I think they are pretty great too, actually a little cakier than regular cookies which is not a problem as far as I am concerned, they are on point!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I’m so happy – thanks for sharing!

    I took one cup of flour and put in half a cup of almond flour and half a cup of coconut flour….they were very good!!!!

    • SueK

      These were cake like and disappointing. I have yet to find a sugar free chocolate chip cookie that has the same consistency as chocolate chip cookies made with sugar. Cake like and dry. Dont waste your time on this recipe

  7. ChrisSustarich

    Loved these cookies!!! I used 1/2 the butter and substituted the other half with unsweetened applesauce. Instead of all purpose flour, I used the keto wheat flour. They were good, cake like but I like that in a chocolate chip cookie. Would definitely make again!!
