These Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies are so easy to make and they are kid approved! Make them anytime you get that chocolate chip cookie craving…without the guilt!
Have I ever mentioned that I am a self proclaimed cookie monster? I think I may have mentioned it in my post on low carb butter cookie energy bites. Anyway, I love the cookies, but they do not love my hips and thighs, if you know what I mean. I was on a mission, a cookie creation mission. Because I cannot live without chocolate chip cookies any more!
I’m just a little obsessed, can’t you tell?
These keto chocolate chip cookies are low carb (yes even the chocolate chips), gluten free, and absolutely delicious. But how can that be, Jennifer? I could lie and say it is magic, but I shall be honest and attribute this amazing recipe to Lilys chocolate chips, almond flour, and swerve sweetener. That’s how it can be, sugar plum.
As you can see, these keto chocolate chip cookies are approved by my picky little rug rats. When I served them to my pickiest one, I watched out of the corner of my eye, and waited for that all too familiar scowl and BLECK!, sound to come out of his mouth. But to my surprise, he uttered the words “Mommy, these are the best cookies ever!” Music to my ears.
As you also may know, my husband, AKA child number 3 (he knows I say that), is the pickiest one of all. He was raised on buttered noodles, Hi-C, and hot dogs. He accepted these keto chocolate chip cookies into his life with open arms!
You get keto chocolate chip cookies, and you get chocolate chip cookies, and they were keto and we all lived happily ever after!
Except my boy has never had a green vegetable pass through his lips in his almost 8 years of existence. I digress. One day, one day.
HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES VIDEO:
A NOTE ON THE CARB COUNT
I have been getting a few irate people saying I have calculated the macros wrong on this keto cookie recipe and they are going to be knocked out of ketosis. Please note, you must subtract the erythritol in the swerve and the lily’s chocolate chips and subtract the fiber to get an accurate carb count.

Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies - Nut Free Option
These keto chocolate chip keto cookies are low carb, gluten free, easy to make, amazingly delicious, and kid approved! One bowl is all you need. This recipe uses almond flour and I give a nut free option.
Add softened butter (or coconut oil) and swerve sweetener in a stand mixer (or hand mixer with a large bowl), mix on medium until combined
add 2 eggs and vanilla and mix until combined
combine almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl
add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined
Fold in Lily's Chocolate Chips
Scoop 18-21 cookies onto lined baking sheet (you may need 2 depending on how big your sheets are). Flatten them out by pressing down on the top slightly.
Bake for 10-12 minutes
Let cool on the cookie sheets for 30 minutes. These will stay soft and delicious for at least 4 days in an air tight container. See notes for freezing instructions.
WATCH HOW TO MAKE IT
Almond Flour Free Version: So many people cannot tolerate almonds. For an almond flour free version, simply use the same amount of sunflower seed flour. It is comparable in price to almond flour.
No Lily's Chocolate Chips?: If you are having trouble finding the sugar free chocolate chips, you can use an 85% dark chocolate bar and cut it into chunks. You may need 2.
Mixing - This recipe has evolved into a dump recipe because they turn out perfectly even with just dumping all of the ingredients into a large bowl and mixing.
Cookie Scoop - Ensures perfectly even keto chocolate chip cookies. I always end up with 21 if I use my cookie scoop. I linked to the one I use in the recipe above.
Checking for Doneness - These keto cookies get brown on the bottom and slightly brown on the top. Mine have always been perfect after 12 minutes.
Freezing - I have kept these frozen for months and they still taste great. I freeze them all on the sheet tray for 2 hours, then I put them all in a freezer safe container or bag. I pull one out when I am ready to eat a cookie and they are so good straight out of the freezer.
Nutrition - Please note, you must subtract the erythritol in the sweetener and the lily's chocolate chips and subtract the fiber to get an accurate carb count. I have done this in my nutrition information.

Hi Jennifer! I’m planning on making an assortment of your dessert recipes for my keto-followers in the family for Christmas. In your nutrition facts are the carbs listed net carbs or total carbs? I see you mention that you’ve already subtracted the sweeteners, but I’m not sure if you’ve also already subtracted fiber? Thanks!
I did not have enough butter in the house, but randomly had some almond oil, so I mixed the butter that I had with the almond oil. I also added some almond extract and baked for about 9 min 30 or so seconds as i wanted them a bit more soft. YUM. This one is a keeper!
I have made EVERY COOKIE RECIPE out there and they all taste the same. This one, for some reason, was much better! I have to remake it to see if I did anything different but overall they were great! My calorie count comes out to about 215/cookie and I’m not sure why. But OMG they were great!
Just finished making these. I used blanched Almond Flour, coconut oil, and Truvia sugar substitute. I used a small cookie scoop and flattened ea. cookie. It made about 34- 2 to 2-1/2¨ cookies. They are absolutely delicious. This is the first time I have attempted making keto cookies, and I love them.
Just made a half batch today. Very impressed with the excellent texture and light buttery flavor. Perfect directions, mine also took exactly 12 minutes to bake . Will keep this recipe on hand . Walmart now sells Lily’s chips so finally I can make them whenever I want. Will freeze most as u mentioned. Thanks very much!!
These alot but batter was thin
Not scoopable so soft. Cookies spread but if you don’t over cook they are very good

These cookies was the first Keto dessert that I’ve tried… and I have to say I’m impressed! They were slightly sweet (just the perfect amount….I used swerve confectioners sweetener ) With a light buttery flavor. Overall, I really enjoyed them??O?
Love this cookie recipe. I am new to keto baking, so finding a good recipe that is easy to understand and tastes good is difficult. Would adding shredded coconut to the recipe be possible without drying it out too much?
Hi, Jennifer! The Keto alternative cookies are awesome! However, when I used my cookie scoop, the cookies didn’t flatten out at all. It baked in the same shape as I laid it with the cookie scoop. How do I get it to flatten out as I saw in your video? Thanks!
Wow I forgot baking powder.. girlfriend put in olive oil instead of butter and we didnt smash them flat (i was on the phone so –>) they.. baked out all the oil.. are still in ball shape.. but appear edible and smell great

Jennifer, how would I modify this recipe for high altitude? (I would normally add more flour, a little water and less sugar, do you think that would also apply to this recipe? All I can do is try, right?)
Definitely a hit!! Friends have to told me keto desserts are something you have to get accustomed to. This is my first treat on keto and we are in love with it. Many blessings to you for sharing and making keto treats something to look forward to!!!
These were really good — after I used the correct baking time! I overcooked the first batch thinking they should be brown , but the last batch I used your recommended time and didn’t smoosh them down. Delicious! My husband, who would rather not have dessert than eat something he calls “weird” — ate two and said they were really, really, really good.
I make the same recipe! I found it on the back of my almond flour package haha. I switched out the regular granulated swerve for the brown sugar one! Nailed it! Try it next time ?? I’ve had it both ways, but with the brown you get the caramelized flavor I’ve been missing in keto cookies trying to be tollhouse!
Monica, if you are just now starting to follow Jennifer and her low-carb recipes, have I got a treat for you!!! I haven’t tried these cookies yet, but I have had both variations of this keto mug cake and it’s delicious!!! Time to try another dessert that won’t disappoint!! https://jenniferbanz.com/keto-mug-cake

That is very kind of you, Erica!

Made these today to take to work. Didn’t have granular Swerve so used 1/3 powdered monkfruit and 1/3 Swerve brown “sugar”. Turned out perfect!! Thank you!
Today is national chocolate chip cookie day! I made these once before but didn’t have swerve on hand. I used sukrin gold not realizing how much they’d spreeeeead. It was like a giant mass of delicious cookie goodness. Made again today and guess what, no swerve. Used a combo of monk fruit and sukrin gold. They spread but still remained individual cookies. And they are AMAZING.
Also, a suggestion for peeps who don’t like the sweetness of sf choc chips- replace some with cacao nibs. Adds a nice nutty texture and the slight bitterness balances out the sweet from the sweetness.
WOW!! Last week I made a chocolate chip cookie recipe using peanut butter instead of flour. Not impressed. I found this recipe and it did not disappoint! My favorite have always been the cake like chocolate chip cookies and this hits the nail on the head! I’m making an extra batch to take to work to show how good going low carb can be! Thanks for this delicious recipe!!
I’ve made these twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly as written, and they were fantastic. I just made them again, but added some chopped walnuts, and they were even better! My family eats them too even though they aren’t following a low carb diet. I love that you can dump everything in a bowl and quickly make cookies!
I’ve been eating Keto for about a year and a half. These were my first try at a Keto chocolate chip cookie, and my first review ever of a recipe. I made them exactly like the recipe but added about a cup of pecans. These were absolutely delicious!!! Thank you for the recipe!
OMG. I have never left a comment on ANY recipe before, but these were SO GOOD, they deserved the extra effort. I followed the recipe exactly and these cookies are amazing. I’m so glad to have found them as I do enjoy a little something sweet and a cup of tea in the evening. Even my kids keep asking for more! Soft, sweet and delicious. I do think Swerve makes all the difference in texture, so it’s worth getting some, I’m not sure they would be as good with an alternate sweetner. I’m am absolutely going to try more of your recipes since this one was so impressive!
Just made these with a little added unsweetened coconut. I am new to low carb baking and was really nervous. These are truly good! Thanks so much.

I don’t have 3 cups of almond flour, but I do have some almond flour and some coconut flour. Do you have a ratio for me to use?
September 09, 2019 at 9:50 am
Sorry, I don’t
November 05, 2019 at 9:36 pm
The coconut flour and the Almond flour have same net carbs. So no difference there. We use Bobs fine Redmill for both. These are good but took 20minutes to bake. Still doughy though in middle. I did it at 350.
As long as they are a 1 for 1 substitute for sugar, you use the same amount. They should say somewhere on the bag
June 30, 2019 at 9:40 pm
Wow, I have made these several times already, they are amazing each and every time. I now put them in the freezer and eat them cold, they are amazing, thank you for this great keto cookie recipe! I’ve added sliced almonds and walnuts also, amazing!
Hi Jennifer, thank you so much for this recipe. A lot of the Keto cookie recipes only make a dozen or so and I made 30. I added walnuts and used brown sugar swerve. I tasted the dough and if I didn’t know better , would swear they were non-Keto. They are delicious. These are my new favorite. Thank you so much for all your wonderful recipes.
I love these cookies and they turned out great. My daughter is using a calorie counting app and was distraught at how many calories these were. Is there any advice to give her on keto-friendly options?
We used coconut/red palm shortening but everything else was the same. Made 40 cookies and calories came out at 107 per cookie.
So, I’m super lazy when it comes to leaving comments, but I pretty much HAD to with these….THEY WERE AMAZING!! The men at my work are all on Keto, and (as the resident baker) I’ve been practicing my Keto baking…I brought these and they went CRAZYYYY!!! I will say, my dough didn’t tighten up enough to make actual cookies, so I just put them in a pan and baked them as bars; they were perfect! I might try to figure out a way to make them “cookie-able,” but tbh…bars are just as delicious ^.^ Thank you SO much!!
Happy National Chocolate Chip Day! I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe to take cookies to work to celebrate today and I found your recipe. It was the closest recipe I found to traditional cookies and since I have doing Keto for about a month, decided to give them a try. I have to say that everyone says these cookies won hands down. Thanks so much!
I just have to say that you must have the patience of a saint. I could never put up with the crap that people seem to think they HAVE to tell you, I have been reading the comments and the statements and questions, Lady you are awesome. Bless you for you talents and sharing them
Made these today after not having much luck wth keto sweets. These turned out the best of almost anything else I have tried! I used lakanto monkfruit instead of swerve and they were delicious. I hate that slight cooling effect from most sweeteners, but it wasn’t as noticeable in these cookies. Thanks for the great recipe! I think next time, I might put in some coconut to make the texture a bit more chewy.
Swerve has 4 carbs per teaspoon. 32 teaspoons in 2/3 of a cup = 128 carbs in Sweve sweetener alone in this recipe. I do not understand why those carbs are not included in the total carb count? Am I missing something?
what am i doing wrong? my mixture was not as dark as yours and mine seems a bit sticky. not as thick as yours….did i use too much butter maybe? I’m just praying they turn out good. I have wasted so much almond flour trying to bake things ?? I totally suck at this!!!!
These are by far the best Ch Chip Cookie that I have made while on Keto! All the others I’ve tried haven’t tasted good or the texture was yuck! These are soft and taste great! I will be saving this to make again! I can’t wait for the hubby to get home and try one!
These are incredible thank you for the recipe!! Question: I keep getting 6 net carbs per cookie. The top of recipe says 2 net carbs and at the bottom it says 4 net carbs per cookie? They are incredible either way just want to know which to calculate for me macros. Here is what I am doing: 3 cups Almond flour is 96 net carbs, 4.5 ounces of Lily’s chips are 18net carbs and 1 net carb for vanilla. That is a total of 115 net carbs divided by 20 cookies is 5.75 net carbs?? Please help!! These are INCREDIBLE cookies and I want to eat as many as I can lol!!
Made these with xylitol and stevia the first time. Ok, they were. I added macadamia nuts.
The second time i made them, i used swerve xylitol and the swerve brown sugar. Doubled up on the macadamia nuts and… omg. Perfection. Perfection!
OMG!! I decided to make chocolate chip cookies on this cold blistery Sunday and stumbled onto this recipe.
The reviews were good, the photos looked good, and I love almond flour over coconut flour in baked goods.
Wow! I tried the batter first and couldn’t believe how “real” and yummy it tasted.
I baked for 10 minutes, crispy on edges soft baked in middle.(Not under cooked)
Good consistency, not too thin, or thick.
I opted to flatten them some before baking.
I was worried they would be thin crispy discs.
They are perfect!
I added swerve granular, and swerve brown.
A little more of the granular but still adding to the 2/3 amount.
Love tasting that little bit of brown sugar! Delicious!!
Only thing I would do different next time is use the Lily’s chocolate chips.
I had a bar of 100% chocolate that I cut up into chunks,
so they are little on the unsweet side.
I’m so not complaining though because they are phenomenal.
It’s actually kinda nice to have the unsweet chocolate sometimes.
It really allows you to taste everything else in the cookie!! The brown sugar, salt, and butter make up for it in every little bite!
Heaven on this keto diet!
You know you could make so much money if you could market these somehow lol. Keto products are a Desired and HOT item these days!! Especially good ones!
Have you seen how much all these Keto products go for?! It’s a good time to be a keto maker! Chachiiiiiing! ??
Anyway awesome recipe,
my picky 4 year old even loves them!
We will keep this as our regular recipe from now on!
Craving satisfied ???
P.s. I have gorgeous photos of my cookies but I can’t find the option to share here?
Guess you will have to take my word for it!
They are beautiful!
Made these tonight and they were yummy but a bit dry. Made them for my hubby and he had to drink a lot of milk with them. Thank you for this yummy recipe. Any tips on how to make it a bit more moist? I did use 1 cup of coconut flour along with the almond because I didn’t have enough almond.
They are awesome! I did use butter and coconut oil and a mixture of swerve and brown Splenda . Also only used 1/4 tsp of salt and baking soda. Did add 1/2 tsp of baking powder . They are amazing! Thank you!
I just made these and they are really good! I did not have any issues with dryness- they were very moist. I used butter and truvia for the sweetner; also sugar free chocolate chips. I definitely will make again! Thank you!
I made these for the first time with swerve powdered as the powdered generally has less of a cooling affect in baked goods. Baked for ten minutes – they are lovely cakes cookies- kind of like a pound cake had a cookie baby. So tasty. I think using a good butter really made them delicious. Would love to try them with sukrin gold for a brown sugar flavor. Thanks for a good recipe!
My almond flour was brown…is that the wrong type? They were dry and tasted nothing like chocolate chip cookies ?? Also, if you use the Sukrin gold, how much would you use? Thank you I’d like to try it again!
I think the almond flour you used was not as coarsely ground which may have made them dry. You would use the same amount fo sukrin gold

Loved these cookies! Made them a couple weeks ago and have a batch just coming out of the oven now. I put some chopped pecans and walnuts in mine and I found that it helped take away some of that artificial sweetener taste. They are the perfect low carb treat!
Nuts are always a personal preference – some people don’t like nuts but nut lovers will eyeball the amount and dump according to how much nuts they like in a cookie! If you only like a nut or two you’re gonna dump less nuts obviously
January 18, 2019 at 10:47 am
These cookies oh my gosh are absolutely amazing!!! The best keto dessert I’ve yet to try. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!! YUM!!
YUM, MADE A SECOND BATCH 4 days later. Made them bigger (around 14-15 cookies).
For this second time, we removed a bit of chocolate, replaced with a bit of unsweetened coconut, added pinch of cinamon and 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract. Will see how what it does!
I made these for the 1st time tonight. The tops were a little more mushy than I like. I baked them an additional 10 minutes and they were still a little more mushy than I normally like. Do you have any suggestions for making them more evenly browned or golden ( other than cooking them longer, because the bottoms seemed to cook better than the tops).
Thanks a bunch for the recipe!
I also must add I didn’t have Lilly choco chips so I chopped up a Lilly’s chocolate bar instead.
We loved these! I have been looking for something to satisfy that sweet craving so I decided to try these and I was pleasantly surprised at how good these are. I’ve tried many other recipes and they were awful. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Looking your site over to see what else to try!
I wish I could say I liked these but honestly, I did not. I followed the recipe as posted and the resulting cookies were less than stellar in my opinion. The first sheet I rolled the dough into balls before placing in the oven and the result was crumbly and under cooked at 18 minutes in a 350 degree gas powered oven. The second sheet of cookies were flattened before placing in the oven for 15 minutes and it resulted in a better looking cookie however the taste of the cookies left much to be desired. I’ve been following the keto lifestyle for several months now so I prefer food that is not overly sweet however these were not nearly sweet enough and there was an unpleasant grainy texture left in my mouth. I felt like I was just eating milled almonds. Sorry but my tastebuds say this one is a fail.
I feel the same I followed the recipe to the letter and while they were beautiful they were not sweet at all. If you found any fixes or a recipe that delivers on the chocolate chip cookie taste. Thanks so much !!
I’m new to low carb baking and sometimes don’t have the best results. So, I cut this recipe in half so I wouldn’t waste too many ingredients if the cookies didn’t turn out well. I can’t afford to keep wasting these expensive ingredients. Made them tonight and they were so good and turned out perfectly! I had to substitute Swerve brown sugar because I didn’t have enough granulated on hand. And I love the taste it gave. Also added some pecans. And the dough was just as good a treat as the baked cookies. This will definitely be a recipe I use again.
Just made these today! I’m a big chocolate chip cookie fan and when I started keto I thought I would be deprived. With my research I found your recipe and these are amazing!!! I froze some of the dough as well as I would have eaten the whole batch ( ;
Having mixed all the ingredients together, the result looks like fine grated parmesan; the mix is pretty dry and took 20 minutes to get into balls. I made 2 substitutions: 3 cups of coconut flour, and 3/4 cup mixing margarine/ butter. There seemed to be too much flour. Any idea what I did wrong?
Hi Jennifer, I am new at cooking keto and read through your comments before hand. I used 3/4 cup coconut oil and 1 1/2 coconut flour with the exact same remaining ingredients. I mixed in my kitchenaid and it was all very crumbly. I could pack together a ball (kinda like snowballs!) and hoped for a miracle! They came out beautiful but fell apart crumbled if moved. Do you have any suggestions? Ingredients are not cheap so I hate to waste.. although hubby just swallowed 3!! I personally ate one and had to get water to help it down. I am new in the kitchen so adding this or that without exact instructions is terrifying ? Thank you for all you do!!
Thanks my pre-keto cookies I always mixed by hand because we like cookies that are thicker.
October 13, 2018 at 8:26 pm
Made these tonight and they were pretty good! They do have that almond flour almost grainy texture to them but that is what you sacrifice in order to go low carb! These were delicious for an almond flour cookie though. I added about a cup of chopped pecans and a dash of cinnamon. Everyone in my family agreed they were pretty good for a low carb cookie! Will be making these again, Thanks!!
I made them exactly as directed and baked for 12 mins, and they are really delicious! The centers were soft and a little crumbly, so next time I will leave them in a minute or two longer till they turn golden on the tops, and not just around the sides. My husband missed having chocolate chip cookies more than any other treat, and now he can have them. Thank you for sharing!
I made this today and love them! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and I have been in search of THE low carb cookie. I think I may have found it. I used erythritol instead of Swerve since I only had powdered Swerve on hand. So I added just a little stevia to make it a bit sweeter. I may have flattened my a bit more since they looked a bit flatter but still delicious. I always have to remind myself that erythritol firms up as it cools so they are done before you think they are. Have you added walnuts or pecans to these? I think that might make them perfect.
Oh my God I was almost discouraged with trying new recipes for cookies and Breads and stuff like that and these cookies are flipping amazing they taste so delicious ? and they’re not even dry! I will continue to use thus recipe thanks Jennifer!
I had to use a bit more erythritol for them to be the perfect amount of sweet & my cook time took 24 min. I read the comments before making them and pushed flattened the cookies out before putting them in the oven & they came out perfect ! They definitely taste a LOT better when you let them fully cool!
Made these tonight. Delicious right out of the oven…a huge hit with my keto eaters! (Quest choc chip cookies are good, but these are better and cheaper…and warm out of the oven) Also cookies looked just like the picture. I will make these for special occasions only…though good enough to eat them everyday. Note: no Lily chips at Health food store (can’t keep them on the shelf) so I bought a Lily chocolate bar and just chopped up half of the bar because I halved the dough recipe. YUM!
I ended up with ~45 cookie balls that were 1 tbsp each. Mine also never flattened out and were cooked through with 10 mins, and ended up being a bit dry, so I combined some to make cookie dough balls that were 2 tbsp each–I still had to push them down or they would have just been a ball shaped cookie, and they also ended up being pretty dry Should the almond flour be packed when measured? Also, I’m at high altitude so not sure if that may have made a difference. Looking forward to any tips you all may have! ??
My dough won’t form into balls without falling apart no matter what I do:( I used coconut oil and butter both and even put in another egg, so I’m wondering if you packed your flour or not because I didn’
The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
