Low Carb Chocolate Cookie Dough
When the sweet tooth is rampant, the last thing anyone wants to do is turn on the oven! As nice as a fresh batch of cookies are, the process to whip them up can be off-putting.
Luckily, you can satisfy the sweet tooth in under 5 minutes with a healthy edible cookie dough! Before you roll your eyes thinking that all cookie dough contains raw flour, raw eggs and tons of sugar…think again!
My healthy cookie dough recipe contains none of those! It has no flour, no sugar and definitely no eggs. Instead, we use almond meal and several other easy ingredients to produce a cookie dough texture!
Unlike traditional cookie dough or cookies, this recipe is also ketogenic friendly, low carb and completely sugar free. It’s your guilt-free no bake dessert which literally takes 5 minutes. Bonus? It’s also paleo and vegan, so no one misses out!
As I’ve recently shared a classic cookie dough recipe, I wanted to give a chocolate twist to it, after being inspired by my flourless keto chocolate cookies. There’s something about adding extra chocolate to cookies which takes it up a notch!
To make this healthy low carb keto chocolate cookie dough, you’ll need five main ingredients-
- Blanched almond meal
- Granulated sweetener of choice
- A sticky sweetener of choice
- Cocoa Powder
- Coconut Oil
Almond meal VS Almond Flour
Almond meal and almond flour are both derived from the same food- almonds! They are both blended/ground to a flour-like consistency.
The main difference between the two is that almond meal generally contains the skins of the almonds (hence the darker color) and almond flour usually omits the skins, often referred to as blanched almond flour.
I prefer using blanched almond flour for this recipe, as it has a smoother texture and less nutty flavor.
Sugar-Free Granulated Sweeteners
A sugar-free granulated sweetener doesn’t need to be artificial- There are may natural sugar-free granulated sweeteners on the market! I prefer using either monk fruit sweetener or swerve, which are both keto-friendly, paleo and vegan.
If you can tolerate refined sugar, coconut palm sugar can be used, but it will no longer be keto-friendly.
Sugar-Free Sticky Sweeteners
A sugar-free sticky sweetener of choice is needed to ensure the cookie dough has a sweet flavor, but also creamy, crumbly texture.
Keto-dieters, there are several sweeteners you can use. I prefer using a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, as it has the sticky consistency needed.
If you don’t follow a ketogenic diet, paleo and vegan sweeteners include coconut syrup, maple syrup, and agave nectar. If you don’t follow a strict vegan diet, honey can also be used.
For the cocoa powder, ensure the kind you use is 100% unsweetened. Dark cocoa powder or dutch processed cocoa powder are both fine to use.
The coconut oil is the secret ingredient to give it the real, buttery cookie dough flavor and texture. Please do not omit this, or you’ll be needing some liquid (like milk) to loosen the cookie dough up.
Finally, you would be foolish not to add any chocolate chips or chocolate chunks into the dough! You can either use homemade keto chocolate pieces or use a store-bought variety- I share my favorites here!
Low Carb Keto Chocolate Cookie Dough (Edible, Paleo, Vegan)
- In a small mixing bowl, combine your blanched almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, granulated sweetener of choice and mix well.
- Add your sticky sweetener of choice and melted coconut oil and mix very well- The texture should be crumbly. Stir through your chocolate chips and slowly, using a teaspoon, add your liquid of choice or extra syrup until a thick, cookie dough batter remains.
- Transfer to a small bowl and enjoy immediately, or refrigerate to thicken.
