What We Like
Cookies that are good for several different dietary needs (gluten-free, diabetic, keto, low-carb, low-cal, etc.)
Convenient, individually wrapped cookies
Tastes like “real” cookies (aka cookies made with white sugar and flour)
What We Don’t Like
High price for the size cookie
No nut-free cookie options (bites are nut-free!)
Free shipping threshold at $60+ is on the high side
All of the cookies are made using almond flour, have between 170-200 calories and 1 gram or less of sugar. Cookies are also grain-free and great for anyone who is following a low-carb diet or just wants to enjoy a healthier cookie option!
All of the bites are made using sunflower seed flour or almond flour. Each bit has only 80-90 calories and 1 gram or less of sugar. The bites are a perfect way to treat yourself to a little something sweet without eating a whole, big dessert.
The cookie mixes are very easy to make and only require a few fresh ingredients from you. You can bake healthy, homemade cookies that fit right into your low-carb lifestyle with a ChipMonk baking mix.
We received a small box of 6 peanut butter cookies. You can choose to purchase the cookies in 6, 12, or 18 cookie boxes. You can also sign up for a cookie subscription and save 10%.
The cookies were each individually wrapped and inside a nice, branded box. There were even motivational quotes inside the box! The cookies were all sealed nicely and none were broken or damaged. Each cookie was about 3 inches in size and felt nice and soft.
All of the nutritional information was on the individual cookie wrapper and the peanut butter cookies were marked as having 1 gram of sugar, 4g net carbs, and all gluten-free ingredients. Peanuts and allulose (the keto sweetener) were the first two ingredients on the label. These cookies are 7 WW points each.
We gave one of the peanut butter cookies a try and they were very soft and chewy. The cookies were perfectly baked, not burned or undercooked but all a uniform, golden-brown color. They had a lovely peanut butter taste and didn’t taste at all like “fake” sugar. There was no metallic aftertaste that you sometimes get when eating alternative sugars. The ChipMonk cookies were sweet, rich, and delicious!

We received a 6-ounce bag of red velvet bites. Each bite was a little 1 inch, bite-sized ball. They came in a resealable bag and there were 8 bites inside the pouch. You can choose to purchase more pouches in your order and do receive a small discount when you buy more than one. You can also choose to subscribe and get constant cookie bites delivered right to you!
The ChipMonk red velvet bites have 1 gram of net carbs, only 85 calories per bite and each is 2 WW points. The first ingredients on the bag of red velvet bites were sunflower seed flour and allulose again. Next came butter, cocoa powder, and keto chocolate chips. All the ingredients were recognizable and made me feel like they were pretty healthy, especially for a dessert!
The red velvet bites were nice and soft. They had visible pieces of sunflower seeds and also large white chocolate chips. They were a dark red color and it actually took two bites to eat, not just one! They had a rich chocolate taste and were subtly sweet. Any red velvet lover would approve!
$8.99 per pouch (8 bites) + Shipping (Free Shipping on orders over $60)
The last item we received was the Chocolate ChipMonk baking mix. The mix came in a well-sealed, one-pound bag with clear baking instructions. Each dry mix is $12.99 for 1 pound which makes about 20 cookies.
The mix was made with almond flour, allulose, chocolate chips, salt, konjac powder, psyllium husk powder, baking soda, and monk fruit extract. Konjac powder and psyllium husk powder are both binding agents that are commonly used in keto baking. Almond flour doesn’t hold baked goods together as well as regular, white flour so these extra, natural ingredients help make chewy cookies that won’t crumble apart.
I followed the directions on the bag to make the cookies, mixing butter, vanilla, and the egg together. I would recommend softening or melting the butter or it will not blend together with the two other wet ingredients. I added all of the ChipMonk dry cookie mix and stirred. A nice cookie dough formed almost instantly!
The recipe recommended scooping the mix into 22, teaspoon size balls. These were very small, about ¾ of an inch round. The cookies baked in about 8 minutes in my preheated oven, so a little faster than recommended on the bag. However, the cookies were starting to get dark so I didn’t want them to burn!
The baked chocolate chip cookies tasted very good. They had a nutty flavor thanks to the almond flour and there were just enough chips to give a nice chocolate taste. The cookies were soft and chewy and still had the same taste and texture days later when I was still enjoying them!
I would say that the cookies were much smaller than I expected. Next time, I would probably make them double the size but that would also alter the nutritional information. If you are looking for a small, bite-sized cookie that only has 80 calories, then make them exactly as directed! Just keep an eye on the cooking time as you do not want them to get too dark as they bake! All in all, these were easy to make and had a very good flavor.

ChipMonk has created some fabulous keto and diabetic-friendly, low-carb cookies that enable everyone to enjoy dessert. The blend of allulose and monk fruit sweeteners makes the cookies perfectly sweet without the carbs or aftertaste.
We definitely enjoyed the peanut butter cookies and loved how they were wrapped so nicely. The red velvet bites had a great flavor and were delicious for when you just need a little something sweet.
The baking mix instructions may need to be tweaked a little bit. The cookies were a little small and also would have burned if left to bake in the directed time. We also wish there were more cookie options including nut-free options and hopefully ChipMonk will add some more, exciting flavors in the future! And while the price for these treats is higher than your normal cookie, you are paying for quality ingredients.
