This edible Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is rich and delicious, making it the perfect low carb dessert recipe. Best of all, it is egg free, sugar free, and gluten free and only takes 10 minutes to make.
- Almond flour - I recommend using a blanched or super fine almond flour for this keto chocolate chip cookie dough. It more closely resembles a traditional flour based cookie dough. (more keto cookie recipes)
- Monk fruit - This is my low carb sweetener of choice. In my opinion, it most closely resembles sugar. It doesn't have a weird aftertaste or cooling effect like many other sweeteners. This is my favorite brand (code PEACE for 20% off)
- Butter flavored coconut oil - If you can't have dairy or are vegan, this is an excellent plant based substitution for butter. It adds that rich, buttery flavor you would expect from regular butter (I use this brand)
- Almond milk - to make this edible keto cookie dough dairy free, I used almond milk. You can also use coconut milk, or any milk alternative you prefer. If you are not concerned with keeping it dairy free, heavy cream and half and half are also great choices.
STEP 1: Add the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, and salt to a large bowl. Whisk until there are no visible clumps and the ingredients are well combined.
STEP 2: Add the wet ingredients (almond milk, melted butter, and vanilla) to the dry ingredients. Using a rubber spatula, mix until all ingredients are well incorporated. The texture should be thick like a traditional cookie dough - if necessary you can add a splash of almond milk if it is too dry, or additional coconut or almond flour to thicken it up.
STEP 3: Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
STEP 4: Scoop or roll the dough into 20 evenly sized cookie dough balls, about 1 ½ inches. Refrigerator for 30 minutes before serving.
Recipe Tips and Variations
- Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for 2 months.
- Make keto sugar cookies: Omitting the chocolate chips leaves you with a sugar cookie–type base. From there, try using different extracts to add different flavors—almond, caramel, and lemon, to name a few.
- Substitute brown sugar erythritol: In place of the monk fruit, use brown sugar erythritol to give this keto cookie dough that rice brown sugar flavor.
- Go nuts: Mix in some of your favorite nuts - peanuts, walnuts, and pecans are some of my favorites.
- Change up the chocolate: These are also delicious with are variety of low carb chocolate chips - milk chocolate, salted caramel or even white chocolate.
