Expert Tips for the Perfect Dough

  • Choosing the Right Flour: Almond flour, as opposed to coconut flour, lends a smooth texture to the dough. Almond meal can be a substitute, but remember, the finer the grain, the better the texture.
  • The Sweet Affair: A blend of brown sugar substitute and white granulated sweetener brings the perfect sweetness without adding to your net carb count. Remember, the sweetness can be adjusted according to your preference.
  • Chocoholic's Paradise: When it comes to chocolate, opting for dark chocolate chips over milk chocolate chips will keep the carb content low and bring a rich flavor to your dough.
  • Creamy Delight: The addition of heavy cream gives the dough a creamy texture that is just divine. Make sure it is at room temperature to ensure a smooth blend.
  • Utensils Matter: While a small bowl would suffice for mixing the ingredients, using a large bowl gives you ample space to fold in the chocolate chips without making a mess.

Once you've mastered the art of making the perfect dough, here are some creative ways to enjoy it:

  • Keto Cookie Dough Balls: Utilize a cookie scoop to form small cookie dough balls, which can be enjoyed as a quick snack.
  • Cookie Dough Ice Cream: Make your keto ice cream a notch better with chunks of this cookie dough.
  • Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies: Yes, this dough can be baked too! Spread the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake to enjoy some delicious cookies.

Frequently Asked Questions: keto cookie dough recipe

1. Can I use coconut flour instead of almond flour?

Absolutely, coconut flour can be used as a substitute for almond flour. However, it might alter the texture slightly, making it a bit more grainy compared to using almond flour. Adjust the wet ingredients as necessary to achieve the desired consistency.

2. What can be used as a substitute for heavy cream?

In case you run out of heavy cream, a good alternative could be cream cheese. It brings a tangy flavor and creamy texture to the dough. You might also consider using coconut oil for a non-dairy variant.

3. How can I store the leftover dough?

Leftover dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days. If you wish to store it for a longer period, freezing is a good idea. Just scoop individual portions onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and freeze. Transfer the frozen dough balls to a sealed container and store in the freezer.

4. Can I bake this cookie dough?

Absolutely! If you decide to bake them, preheat your oven and place the cookie dough balls onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden and enjoy warm, delicious cookies with a glass of almond milk.

5. Can I add other mix-ins to this dough?

Yes, you can! Feel free to experiment with different mix-ins like nuts, sugar-free chocolate chips, or swirl in some peanut butter cookie dough for a delightful variation. The only thing to remember is to keep an eye on the nutritional values to stay within your keto macros.

6. Is Edible Cookie Dough Safe?

This edible cookie dough is perfectly safe to indulge in. The problem with regular cookie dough is it contains raw eggs and uncooked flour. Raw eggs are prone to carrying many food borne illnesses like salmonella.

Uncooked flour can also carry germs or bacteria and must be heated to a certain temperature to make it safe for consuming. Of course, eating normal raw cookie dough doesn’t ensure you’ll get sick, but it’s a risk.

This cookie dough recipe contains ingredients that can be eaten on their own with no cooking necessary. In other words, it’s safe and you can dig right in!

7. Can You Heat Up Edible Cookie Dough?

You can lightly heat up edible cookie dough. You have to be careful though, because it can actually cook the dough and just become a cookie! Not to mention, the chocolate chips will melt and become a mess.

I mean, I love gooey chocolate, don’t get me wrong. However, cookie dough is meant to be quick and gooey chocolate making a mess isn’t quick in my book. This recipe will melt in your mouth anyway, so there really isn’t any need to heat it!

Keto Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

Cookie dough in a bowl

Don’t sit there missing your favorite desserts when you could be making this Keto Edible Cookie Dough Recipe! Chock full of dark chocolate chips, almond flour, and brown sugar substitute - this snack is bursting with flavor. Quick and easy to toss together, and no worrisome flour to deal with.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 1 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
  • ⅓ Cup Keto-Friendly Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Tablespoons Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Keto Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon White Keto Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract


    Combine all dry ingredients except the chocolate chips in a medium bowl. Stir well.
    Add in all the wet ingredients and stir well again.
    Fold in the chocolate chips and enjoy!


Storage - Store in an airtight container in the fridge and do not freeze or store in the pantry.
Reheating - You can heat this cookie dough in the microwave for a few seconds if you need it warm. However, this can cause the chocolate chips to melt. It can also cause the cookie dough to get dry.
Use other flavored baking chips - As long as they’re keto-friendly, you can use other baking chips. Some of my favorites are white chocolate, salted caramel, butterscotch, etc.
Use other flours - Some don’t like the texture of almond flour since it’s a little crunchy. I believe the taste and flavor matches the cookie scheme well. However, you can use other flours such as coconut flour if you prefer.
Brown sugar substitute - If you can’t get your hands on a keto-friendly brown sugar, you can just use a white granulated sugar substitute instead. Monk fruit sweetener would do the trick as well.
Serve like ice cream - If you want to make this into a cute display, you can use keto-friendly ice cream cones to serve this keto edible cookie dough. You can simply use an ice cream scoop and cute bowls to serve it in this style as well.
