There are several ways you can go about making keto cookie dough.

First, and foremost, you’ll want to make sure that the flour you are using is indeed keto. Some of the best flours to use for this purpose is almond flour, coconut flour, or heck, no flour at all! The key here is to keep the carb count low, and you won’t be able to do that with all-purpose flour or even some gluten free flour types and blends on the market.

In addition to ensuring you are using the right flour for your keto cookie dough, you’ll also want to make sure you use sugar-free alternatives. This can come in many forms and it will be up to you to determine which ingredients to use to sweeten up your dish.

In the recipes I’ve got coming up for you, there are a variety of ways you can sweeten the dough. From using products like granulated sugar alternative to liquid stevia there are many options out there that can help you satisfy your sweet tooth without adding weight to your waistline.

In addition to making your keto cookie dough with low carb flour and low carb sweetener, you’ll also want to check the type of add-ins you use.

Most people love chocolate chips, but because they’re packed with sugar and carbs, the sort used in traditional cookie dough won’t suffice for making a keto cookie dough recipe. Instead, use sugar free chocolate chips in your raw cookie dough to keep up with the theme and keep your keto cookie dough recipe as low carb as possible.

For each of these recipes, feel free to enjoy the cookie dough immediately or chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until firm. Scoop with an ice cream scoop or cookie dough scoop to serve. Alternatively, you can roll the cookie dough into balls prior to placing them in the refrigerator. Place them on a lined baking sheet to chill until firm. Serve chilled or place into freezer bags to be stored for up to two months in the freezer.

Directions

  1. Combine your peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix until fully blended, preferably with a hand mixer.
  2. To this, sift in your sugar free confectioners powder.
  3. Gently fold in your chocolate chips.
  4. Scoop your cookie dough using a cookie dough scoop or tablespoons and toll into evenly sized balls.
  5. Place the keto cookie dough bites on parchment lined paper.
  6. Chill or serve cookie dough immediately.

To store your keto cookie dough balls, you’ll need to lock the bites into an airtight container and keep them in your fridge for 20-3 days. Beyond this point, you’ll want to freeze the cookie dough in a freezer safe container. Your keto chocolate chip cookie dough should last about 2 months at best quality this way.

Remember that keto cookie dough and other keto dessert-worthy delicious recipes may dry out a bit faster than traditional cookie dough recipes. Thus, it is important that you keep the dough sealed tight to prevent air from affecting the overall consistency of this yummy low carb treat.

It is very important that you remember to refrigerate your keto cookie dough balls. Like many foods and desserts, keto cookie dough will begin to break down over time if left at room temperature.

To prevent this from happening, please follow these steps details above for proper storage of your cookie dough. This will lead to optional shelf life, and will keep you from becoming sick from eating cookie dough that’s at room temperature for too long.

Keto cookie dough can be tricky when it comes to mix-ins because, as you can probably guess, most mixins are chock full of sugar and carbs. To prevent a spike in net carbs in these no bake recipes, try the following mix ins instead of traditional ones:

  • Unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Keto chocolate chips
  • Keto sprinkles
  • Sugar free candies
  • Low carb dried fruits
  • Nuts

Alternatively, you can choose to top your cookie dough with low carb whipped cream, splash of heavy cream, or a dollop of keto-friendly ice cream. The sky’s the limit!

The assumption is that if you’re reading this recipe, you already know the many benefits of eating low carb. As for the rest of you, allow me to fill you in.

While keto is by no means the end all be all of diets out there, it is true that the keto diet seems to achieve remarkable results. Still, there’s no denying that those who participate in the low carb lifestyle often have to miss out on yummy eats. From cake, pizza, and yep, even cookie dough, it can be hard for those taking on the new diet to completely let go of all of their favorite treats.

This is where low carb cookie dough comes in. Edible cookie dough is by far one of the most comforting things to eat, especially given that it is prepared in such a way that makes it safe to eat. Still, with all of the sugar and flour involved, it’s easy to see how keto devotees would need to avoid this comforting indulgence.

Well, not anymore!

Through the use of low calorie sweeteners and keto friendly flour, there are multiple ways to come up with delicious and fun recipes that will make you forget that you were even on a diet in the first place.

Now, don’t get me wrong; some things take time to get used to. If you’re used to the traditional consistency and flavor of cookie dough, you’ll be encouraged to know that many of the recipes I’m about to share with you aren’t too far off.

Still, if you are new to the world of low carb baking, you may find it odd to use items like blanched almond flour, protein powder, or natural peanut butter in place of some of the ingredients you’re used to.

And yes, I’ll admit, it may taste slightly different.

However, I guarantee, you’ll likely find yourself pleasantly surprised by the flavor of the recipes in this post. Not only that, but you’ll be happy to know you can indulge every once in a while without feeling like you’ve blown your entire diet.

Sweet!

While there are certainly bakeable keto cookie dough recipes out there, I want you to know that the recipes I’m sharing today are completely no bake. Why? Because I’m always down for the recipes that have the least amount of steps possible, that’s why! Oh, and I totally love edible cookie dough. But that should come as no surprise by now…

Anyway, I suppose you could always try baking edible cookie dough if you really wanted to, but be advised, it won’t likely turn out pretty. Because these cookie doughs don’t contain leavening agents, your cookies will likely end up flat and unappetizing. If that’s your thing, then by all means, go for it.

If not? Stick to the script, and make these cookie dough recipes only as stated.

Assuming that you’ve prepared your cookie dough properly, then you can rest assured that your keto cookie dough is safe to eat. These recipes are free of harmful raw eggs and untreated raw flour that makes eating raw cookie dough so dangerous to begin with. Therefore, as long as you are following the recipes to a tee, you can expect nothing but goodness from these cookie dough treats.

Yum!

All in all, this low carb cookie dough is certainly worth a try, especially if you’ve had a hankering for good cookie dough since you’ve started your rigorous low carb journey. Using ingredients like almond and coconut flours, low calorie sweeteners, and nut butters, you can achieve delicious eats with low net carbs.
