This keto cookie dough is a low carb edible cookie dough that takes minutes to make! No raw eggs, no grains and no sugar, you won’t stop digging your spoon in!
Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Is there anything better than cookie dough? We love cookie dough bites, cookie dough bars, and this keto 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!
Ever since going keto, I’ve been craving a big bowl of raw cookie dough. Before keto, I’d often make vegan cookie dough but I needed to make a low carb version.
This low carb cookie dough fits the bill. It’s made with grain free flours and sugar free syrup, and produces a smooth, creamy and addictive cookie dough. It’s sweet, rich, and studded with sugar free chocolate chips.
How to make keto cookie dough
- 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. It also has a lighter texture, instead of gritty.
- Coconut flour– Adds a little extra thickness. Do not omit this, unless you increase the almond flour.
- Granulated Sweetener– Either monk fruit sweetener or erythritol can be used.
- Sugar Free Maple Syrup– Monk fruit sweetened maple syrup, that has a lovely sweet flavor, without being overpowering. Do not use sugar free pancake syrup, as that will not hold the cookie dough together.
- Coconut oil– Adds a buttery texture to the cookie dough! You want your coconut oil to be soft, not melted.
- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips– A must for any good cookie dough recipe! You can also use a chopped up sugar free chocolate bar.
In a large mixing bowl, add your almond flour, coconut flour, and granulated sweetener and mix well. Add your keto maple syrup and coconut oil and mix well, until a thick cookie dough is formed. Gently fold through the chocolate chips and enjoy immediately, or refrigerate it for 30 minutes, to thicken.
Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Tips
- Do not melt your coconut oil completely, otherwise, it will leave the cookie dough oily and greasy. It will also melt the chocolate chips. You want it to be soft- the same texture as room temperature butter.
- Feel free to mix through any nuts or seeds into your cookie dough, for some added texture. I love adding some coconut flakes to it.
- If your coconut flour and/or almond flour has some clumps, sift them first.
- Instead of keto chocolate chips, chop up a keto chocolate bar instead.
Storing and Freezing Low Carb Cookie Dough
- To store: Keto cookie dough should be kept in a sealed container and stored in the fridge. It will keep well for up to 2 weeks.
- To freeze: You can freeze portions of chocolate chip cookie dough to enjoy at a later time. Place them in a freezer friendly container and will freeze well for up to 6 months.

Keto Edible Cookie Dough
- 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
- 2 tablespoon coconut flour
- 2 tablespoon granulated sweetener of choice * See notes
- 2 tablespoon keto maple syrup ** See notes
- 1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil melted
- 1-2 tablespoon chocolate chips of choice I used stevia sweetened chocolate chips
- 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.

Hi Kristina! It’s been updated in the post 🙂
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! 🙂
I’m not on the paleo diet, could I substitute the almond flour with oat flour? Super excited to try this!
Hi! sure, but add some extra liquid and be prepared for it to be a little gritty 🙂
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!
🙂 You are very sweet
Yum! Even my pickiest eater son who can detect coconut oil or almond flour in anything liked it. We fooled him!
😀 LOVE IT, Robin!!!
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!
Never have I been so excited to see such amazing recipes with minimum ingredients .
yummy tasty and delicious.
Where have you been ?
God Bless for all these recipes especially the
Great to have you here!
Hi! Sounds great! What can I sub for coconut oil?
You can use butter.
So yummy and does not raise the blood sugar of my T1D daughter!
Great to hear that, Maria!
Love these. So easy to make. I didn’t have keto liquid sweetener of any kind, so I just used whipping cream (38% cream) instead. Then to help with portion control, I rolled them into balls and refrigerated them til firm then transferred them to Tupperware in the fridge. A simple to make a treat for when the urge for something sweet hits. Thanks.
Soo I found this recipe but I didn’t have the liquid sweetener so I used 1/2 tbsp extra of my swerve, a bit more oil, and a little water. I loved it but definitely want to try to make it how it is intended to be made! But thank you for the simple recipe!!!
Like!! Really appreciate you sharing this blog post.Thansk you
