These low carb cookie dough snacks are delicious and easy to make with only 1.3g net carbs! Store them in the freezer for a quick, low carb treat you can grab and go.
I love cookie dough. When I was little and we made chocolate chip cookies I always preferred the batter to the finished cookie. The other day I was craving some cookie dough and decided to make these low carb cookie dough snacks to keep in the freezer. I generally will snack on one or two after dinner because they are only 1.3g net carbs per treat. And it’s oh so simple to make – no raw eggs involved and they are gluten free!
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. So for the Paleo version I used coconut sugar which tastes similar to brown sugar and for this low carb versions I used just a scant 1/4 teaspoon of molasses and Swerve sweetener to get that brown sugar taste without the carbs.
The base of this recipe is made from raw walnuts. When you put raw walnuts in the food processor they turn into a dough right before they become a nut butter. That is what you are going for. I’ve used coconut flour for this recipe (only a couple tablespoons) to give it some bulk. The mini chocolate chips are just regular ones but Lilly’s makes a sugar free mini chip that I would have used if I had some. That way I would have added a few more because they are lower in carbs.
Here are the items I used for this recipe. I’ve included Amazon links for your convenience and I get a little commission at no extra charge to you. However your local grocery store should have most of these ingredients. I just noticed yesterday my grocery store sells Swerve!
- raw walnuts
- coconut flour
- Swerve sweetener
- SweetLeaf vanilla stevia
- mini chocolate chips (Lilly’s stevia sweetened chips)
Low Carb Cookie Dough Snacks
To make, add the walnuts to a food processor and pulse until it looks like dough. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chocolate chips. Fold those in at the end and form into little bite sized balls. That’s it. So if you are cookie dough fan, I know you are going to like these. I think I’ve found the perfect combination of ingredients to mimic the real thing. Keep these stored in refrigerator or freezer. I haven’t tried it but I bet these would be good in a low carb ice cream too! The nutrition for 1 snack is:
70 cals / 6.4g fat / 4.3g carbs / 3g fiber / 0.9g protein = 1.3g net carbs
