Keto Chocolate Chip “Cookies” with 1 net carb!

Jump to Recipe

Who doesn’t love warm, soft chocolate chip cookies fresh out of the oven? I’ve tried a few keto chocolate chip cookie recipes, but found most of them to be time consuming and disappointing because the consistency just seemed off to me.

My husband and I are obsessed with the Kirkland protein bars from Costco. We each eat these every day as a meal replacement. One day I had the idea to try “baking” one of the chocolate chip cookie dough protein bars in our air-fryer. It smelled amazing while it was baking but I burned them the first time.

It took me a few tries but I finally got them to be perfect! They came out slightly crispy on top and gooey in the center. The best part is each one is only 1 net carb! Plus, there’s only 1 ingredient!

I highly recommend that you try these. Just be careful because each air fryer is different – it may take a few tries to find the temperature and time that is perfect for you.

First, cut the protein bar into 3 pieces. Then, take a piece of aluminum foil and poke holes in it to allow air to flow through it in the air fryer. Place the 3 “cookies” onto the foil and place the foil in the air fryer. My air fryer (GoWISE USA 12.7 quart Air Fryer) has trays in it so I placed the foil on one of the trays and put the tray into the fryer as far from the heat source as possible.

I found that the perfect time/temperature combination for my air fryer is 5 minutes at 320 degrees. Definitely keep an eye on them while they cook to ensure they don’t burn.

Definitely eat them while they’re still warm.

Each “cookie” is 1 net carb. You can’t beat that!
