What do cream cheese cookies taste like?

These cream cheese chocolate chip cookies are soft, pillowy, and a brown buttery taste. They have a slight shortbread flavor that really compliments the chocolate chips well.

What ingredients do I need and how do you make cream cheese chocolate chip cookies?

  • Almond Flour – a low carb replacement to all-purpose flour.  Can be found in most supermarkets.
  • Sweetener – monkfruit erythritol blend or sweetener of choice.
  • Butter – unsalted.
  • Chocolate Chips – sugar-free chocolate chips. We recommend using ChocZero chocolate chips.  They come in milk chocolate chips,  dark chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. (apply code LOWCARBINGASIAN for 10% off).
  • Cream Cheese – block cream cheese, softened.
  • Vanilla Extract – made from vanilla bean pods.

Combine almond flour, sweetener, cream cheese, vanilla extract and browned butter and beat with a mixer on medium-high speed.

Fold in chocolate chips then roll cookie dough into a ball and place on cookie sheet. Flatten slightly and bake 15 to 20 minutes depending on oven.

Remove from oven, and you will need them to fully cool before removing them from the baking sheet.

Note: not all ovens are created equal so you will need to keep your eye on them the first time making these chocolate chip cream cheese cookies.

4) In the meantime use a large mixing bowl to combine Almond Flour, sweetener, cream cheese, Vanilla Extract and browned butter.  Mix well for about 1 minute with a hand/stand mixer.  Note – make sure browned butter is at room temperature when pouring otherwise it will ‘cook’ the batter.

      Hi Melissa. We don’t have the plugin that runs that for us, but here are the numbers from a recipe convertor found on Google. Calorie ~ 85 Fat ~ 8.5g per cookie.

  2. These are so amazing! I love that I can eat more than one without overdoing it on the carbs. Thanks for the delicious recipe!!

  3. These are really easy to make. The brown butter adds a lot of flavor. I added pecans instead of chocolate chips just because I didn’t have chips. They were delicious. Served with a cold glass of almond milk it made for a great carb friendly snack.
