Healthy Edible Cookie Dough

Whenever I make cookies, I always have to fight off the temptation to dig into a bowl of the raw cookie dough. 

Growing up, I’d always stand around the kitchen when mum was making cookies, hoping to sneak a bite or two of the cookie dough batter. Even though she lamented to me multiple times the dangers of it, I could never resist.

Can you eat raw cookie dough?

Now that I’m older and (questionably) wiser, I could easily follow the same footsteps. Granted, I still do so when making flourless cookies, banana bread cookies or chocolate cookies but this time, I don’t feel guilty.

The aforementioned cookies all contain wholesome ingredients NO raw flour and NO eggs- something which had held me back previously. 

I’ve since shared several healthy cookie dough recipes on here, but not one which could be enjoyed by my low carb and keto friends. Also, I wanted this edible cookie dough to be healthy!

Is cookie dough unhealthy?

Traditional cookie dough would be considered unhealthy, especially eaten in large amounts. It contains several forms of sugar, butter and/or oil and usually raw eggs.

Another reason cookie dough can be seen as unhealthy is that it typically uses raw flour. 

Can you eat raw flour in cookie dough?

Raw flour is never recommended to be eaten on its own. However, the flours used in my no bake recipes (and this edible cookie dough) are ones which are safe to eat raw.

Almond flour and coconut flour are both derived off nuts and fruit, respectively. As such, eating either of them in an uncooked state is perfectly fine.

To make this low carb and keto cookie dough, you’ll need several key ingredients-

  • Blanched almond flour
  • Granulated Sweetener of choice
  • A sticky sweetener of choice
  • Coconut oil

You’ll notice I specifically mentioned blanched almond flour. I prefer using blanched almond flour over the almond meal or traditional almond flour, as the skins of the almonds are removed prior to becoming a flour state. 

Not only does this provide a finer taste and texture, it yields the perfect cookie dough color. If you don’t have this on hand or you don’t mind a darker two-toned cookie dough, any almond meal/flour will suffice.

The granulated sweetener of choice provides extra sweetness but can be adjusted if necessary. Use a keto friendly granulated sweetener, like swerve or granulated monk fruit

Keto friendly sticky sweeteners are uncommon, but not unheard of! I choose to use a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup. It is low carb, sugar free and keto-approved. It also has the same consistency as traditional syrups. 

If you don’t follow a keto diet but do follow a paleo or vegan one, pure maple syrup or LIGHT agave nectar work great. 

Finally, coconut oil is needed to give it the real deal cookie dough texture. I promise you won’t taste it at all. If you have a coconut allergy, you can sub it out for butter or a dairy-free spread.

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine your blanched almond flour, coconut flour and granulated sweetener of choice. Mix well.
  • Add your sticky sweetener of choice and coconut oil and mix very well, until fully combined. The mixture should resemble a creamy cookie dough. Stir through chocolate chips. If it is too crumbly, add either some extra sticky sweetener or a few drops of liquid (milk works great). 
  • Either enjoy immediately or for a thicker, dense cookie dough, refrigerate for 30 minutes. 


* I used a granulated monk fruit sweetener. Adjust this to taste- You can reduce the amount or omit altogether. 
** I used a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup to keep it keto-friendly and 100% sugar free. Refined sugar free alternatives include light agave nectar and pure maple syrup.
Edible Low Carb Keto Cookie Dough (Paleo, Vegan) can keep for up to a week, refrigerated.

    1. What chocolate chips do you use that are sweetened with stevia? The ones you posted a link to are sweetened with evaporated cane juice.

    2. I love your recipes for single-serving cookie dough! I just made one last night using leftover canned pumpkin puree and protein powder using a recipe from your site! 🙂

    3. I really love your recipes! Thank you for helping me on my Keto journey because as frustrating as it is to not lose weight like the other Keto champs, I am seeing much lower blood sugars and that’s the important thing! Again, thanks for so many yummy recipes! Cheers!

    4. I use peanut butter instead of “sticky sweetener” can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate I can’t wait to get home when I know have some in the fridge waiting for me!! I’ve also portioned them out in cute silicone molds and when they are cool in the fridge they are easy to pop out and enjoy. Also wanna say that I’ve been “mixing” the ingredients in my vita mix (except the chocolate chips) and it’s makes it really smooth and more cookie dough like (less gritty). Thanks for sharing I’ve used this recipe several times!

    5. Oh wow!
      Never have I been so excited to see such amazing recipes with minimum ingredients .
