I have always loved traditional cookie dough. When I was little and we made chocolate chip cookies I always preferred the batter to the finished cookie. Also cookie dough ice cream is one of my favorite flavors.
So the other day I was craving some edible cookie dough and decided to make these keto cookie dough bites to keep in the freezer. They are sugar free, gluten free and delicious.
I generally will snack on one or two after dinner because they are only 0.8g net carbs per treat. And it’s oh so simple to make and I didn’t use eggs or almond flour. Instead I made this delicious cookie dough with coconut flour.
I learned when I made my 3 ingredient cookie dough bites that nuts and nut butter made a great base for cookie dough.
It kind of takes the place of both flour and oil that you would normally use in a cookie recipe. Also I realized that brown sugar is an important taste in cookie dough.
No bake cookie dough ingredients I used.
The basic ingredients I used for these low carb cookie dough balls were:
- raw walnuts
- coconut flour
- Swerve Brown sugar sweetener
- keto friendly chocolate chips (Lilly’s milk chocolate chips)
- butter (can also use coconut oil)
A larger grocery store or even Walmart should have most of these ingredients or you can get them on Amazon. Note I did not use vanilla extract just because I was trying to keep the ingredients to a minimum but you could add ½ teaspoon of you wish.
You can also use your granulated sweetener of choice and make it into brown sugar sweetener by using just a scant ¼ teaspoon of molasses with it to get that brown sugar flavor without the carbs.
Below you can see the keto chocolate chips I used. I just got these and really like them for making cookies. Today I used the milk chocolate chips though I have often used their dark chocolate chips too.
How to make keto cookie dough bites.
Step 1: Add raw walnuts to the bowl of a food processor and crush them until they get sticky and start to make a dough. You don’t want to process them too much or they will become a nut butter.
Step 2: Add the softened butter, coconut flour and sweetener and process until it turns into cookie dough batter like that shown below.
Step 3: Spoon the mixture into a small mixing bowl and then fold in the keto chocolate chips. I used Lilly’s milk chocolate chips but you can try other brands as long as they are low carb.
Step 4: Now you want to roll the dough into balls. You can use a teaspoon to scoop dough roll into about 14-16 bite sized cookie dough balls. A cookie scoop would make bigger bites. If the batter is too melty, place it in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden and then it will be easier to handle.
Store them in a baggie or airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator. They melt in your hands because of the butter so I like using the freezer to store them. (Please scroll down to view the printable recipe card.)
A tip for storing no bake bites like these in the freezer. Place them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet or baking sheet and freeze for an hour. Then take them out and place the frozen bites into the baggie.
