In the mood for a treat, but don’t want to make an entire batch of dessert?
My Chocolate Chip Cookie for One will hit the spot when you’re craving a little something sweet.
Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
This is one of the low carb, gluten free desserts I had to create for my friend Deb when she told me she was looking for single serve treats.
Her goal? To avoid having lots of tempting food around the house. Like me, Deb knows everything tastes better from scratch, hence this homemade dessert.
I’m very excited to show her, and you, how to make your own chocolate chip cookie for one.
Chocolate Chip Cookie for One
- 1 tablespoon salted butter (13 grams)
- 3 tablespoons blanched almond flour (not almond meal) (18 grams)
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (8 grams)
- 2 drops vanilla stevia
- 1 teaspoon mini chocolate chips (4 grams)
- In a saucepan, melt butter
- Stir in almond flour, maple syrup, and stevia
- Cool dough in fridge for 10 minutes, then stir in chocolate chips
- Roll dough into a ball then flatten onto a parchment paper lined small baking sheet
- Bake at 350°F for 12-15 minutes until golden

Chocolate Chip Cookie Calories
As you can see, the macros in this chocolate chip cookie are fairly reasonable for a sweet dessert.
If you would like to use this very judiciously on a Keto Diet, it would be better to use a half teaspoon of maple syrup, rather than a whole.
I tested it that way and it was delicious, though much more of a shortbread cookie than a classic chocolate chipper.
Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie with Almond Flour
Made with a base of almond flour, using only one-half teaspoon of sweetener (maple syrup) it is as low carb as I can go without using ingredients such as erythritol, which I can’t digest.
When I make this cookie, I weigh out the ingredients on my kitchen scale. As an aside, a kitchen scale is also super handy for making my Homemade Electrolyte Powder.
If you don’t weigh your ingredients for this cookie recipe, make sure that your tablespoons of almond flour are very level.
Small Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies
If you’d like to make small batch chocolate chip cookies, simply multiply this recipe by two, three, or four, to make the desired amount of cookies.
Gluten Free Cookie Dough
Looking for a bit of healthy cookie dough to munch on? Confession! I like cookie dough more than the actual cookie! What about you?
Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies
Most of my cookie recipes are vegan and these eggless chocolate chip cookies are no exception.
Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
When it comes to chocolate chips, I use Nuts.com mini chocolate chips in this recipe. The mini chips are optimal for good distribution throughout the single serve cookie.

Hi Elana! Is it OK to substitute vanilla extract for the vanilla stevia?
I love your recipes, especially the Carrot Cake, which is our family’s favorite birthday cake.
Wendy, I think that would work :-)
I just tried your recipe! Oh! I like the flavor! Used honey because I didn’t have maple syrup, and did not use stevia. I was hoping it would look more like your cookie and shortbread! Mine looks similar to a chocolate chip cookie. I will reduce the honey next time, becaue I prefer a less sweet cookie, but I do really like this and will make again, it’s so EASY and healthier. Thank you Elana.
PS…mine turned out chewy, why, idk why, but it’s delicious.
Lori, I’m so glad to hear you got a chewy cookie –my fave :-)
Catherine C. says
I love this! A great alternative to all the single serving microwavable containers. I’m going to try it and then make a couple “kits”’to have on hand.
Catherine, so glad you love this and what a great idea to make kits to have on hand!

Your cookbook has been a lifesaver for me during quarantine. I’ve been able to experiment with new dishes and keep mealtime interesting.
Isabella, thanks for letting me know my cookbook has been a lifesaver for you :-)
Olivia J says
Been looking for a better alternative to my favourite cookies! Are these chewy?
Olivia, not chewy, more like a shortbread :-)
E, You had my attention at chocolate…but shortbread…your the recipe wizard!!!
Hugs to you N! Thanks for another wonderful comment <3
