Keto Cookie Dough (with Chocolate Chips)
I don’t know what you daydream about, but my mind often wanders to my favorite foods. Inevitably, I then start to piece together how I might make them keto.
Lucky for you I dreamed up this keto cookie dough recipe with chocolate chips. It’s
keto, it requires no baking, and it’s safe to eat right from the spoon.
But how in the world did I make keto cookie dough? Let me show you…
How to Make Keto Cookie Dough
When I start to create a keto recipe, I often start with a “traditional” version of the same dish.
Conventional cookie dough recipes are made with flour, butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla.
After doing this research my wheels started turning right away – I knew it wouldn’t be difficult to make a great dough that won’t compromise your ketosis.
For the flour, I substituted almond flour for all-purpose white flour. Almond flour isn’t a carb-bomb the way white flour is. It’s a much better choice for keto.
I substituted butter with ghee or clarified butter. While butter is low-carb and full of fat, you would think it’s a good choice for keto.
If you’re looking to lose weight, get clearer skin, and/or reduce inflammation, dairy is probably not the best choice for you. You can

The most obvious no-go in this keto cookie dough is the brown sugar. Carbs for days. Instead, use erythritol or
Finally, instead of sugary milk chocolate chips, you’ll use 100% chocolate. Your portion size matters – this recipe only calls for one ounce.
How to Eat This Cookie Dough
I know, I know. Probably an unnecessary section. You’ve already got your spoon on speed dial, ready for action.
But hitting the entire batch with a spoon might not be the wisest choice. You’ll note that this recipe yields six servings. Please do not eat the whole thing in one go.
If you attack it with your spoon, the odds are likely that that will happen. And you will hate yourself later.
If you simply must go the spoon route, separate the batch into six equal portions from the get-go so you won’t be tempted to go overboard.
If you don’t eat it all at home, you can take one of your portions to work with you for some sweet motivation.
You can also use this recipe with some
keto vanilla ice cream. Again, small portions here. Watch your macros. Help With Macros
