This easy Keto Cookie Dough recipe is perfect for fixing your cookie craving in less than 10 minutes with only 1 gram of net carb per serving!

Plus, this almond flour cookie dough is also gluten-free, and dairy-free options are provided!

We all crave cookies at some point but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen baking cookies.

So let’s make a batch of this low-carb cookie dough and fix our cookie craving with no guilt!

Keto Cookie Dough Low Carb Sugar Free Gluten free

The great news is, all keto flours are safe to be eaten raw! So you can safely make sugar-free cookie dough and eat it from the spoon without worrying too much.


All you need to make this vanilla chocolate chips cookie dough are:

  • Almond Flour or almond meal.
  • Coconut Flour if you want to skip coconut flour, add 4 times more almond flour, so here, instead of 2 tablespoons of cocontu flour, add 8 extra tablespoons of almond flour.
  • Granulated or Powdered Erythritol – I personally prefer the powder as it doesn’t add a grainy texture to the raw cookie dough.
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk or heavy cream for more buttery and rich cookie dough.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Pinch Salt
  • Melted Butter or melted coconut oil for a dairy-free option. Just remember that coconut oil turns the dough pretty hard when stored in the fridge, so I do prefer melted butter for this recipe.

Combining Dry Ingredients

First, in a small mixing bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, and salt. Stir to combine the dry ingredients evenly.

Stir in liquid ingredients

Now, stir in the melted butter, vanilla extract until the dough forms. It should be quick, thick, slightly wet, but not runny or dry. If too dry, add 1 teaspoon more almond milk until the texture is your favorite cookie dough texture.

Tip: Fixing a Wet Dough

If too wet, add more coconut flour, 1/2 teaspoon at a time.

Folding In The Chocolate Chips

Finally, fold in the sugar-free chocolate chips into the batter. You can use dark chocolate chips, white or milk chocolate chips as soon as they are keto-friendly.

If you like precision, divide the cookie dough into 20 balls of about 1 tablespoon. Roll each ball between your hands and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.

So when you crave a cookie, grab a ball, and you know you only get 1 gram of net carbs!

However, if you don’t feel like making cookie dough balls, scoop the dough from the ball using a regular tablespoon and try to stop yourself after 1 or 2 to keep the carbs under control!

Storage Instructions

This cookie dough can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week in an airtight container. You can also freeze the cookie dough in single-serve balls and thaw one keto cookie dough bite at a time.

When your sweet craving comes, it takes about 1 hour to thaw a tablespoon of cookie dough at room temperature.

Keto Cookie Dough Low Carb Sugar Free Gluten free

You can play with this recipe and create a range of keto edible cookie dough flavors and make your keto snacks fun.

My favorite flavors are:

  • Gingerbread Cookie Dough – skip the chocolate chips and add stir 1 teaspoon of gingerbread spices in the dough.
  • Peanut Butter Cookie Dough – decrease the melted butter to 1/4 cup and stir in 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter in the batter.
  • Raspberry Cookie Dough – replace half the sugar-free chocolate chips with freeze-dried raspberries and sugar-free white chocolate chips.
  • Pumpkin Cookie Dough – add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spices to the dough.

Allergy Swaps

If you have some food allergies, I listed below some options to make this cookie dough.

  • Nut-free – you can swap the almond flour for the same amount of sunflower seed flour or sesame flour.
  • Dairy-free – for dairy-free cookie dough, use melted coconut oil instead of melted butter. I recommend popping the dough out from the fridge 20 minutes before serving to soften. In fact, coconut oil solidifies under 20°C, and the cookie dough hardens pretty fast in the fridge when using coconut oil.
  • Sweetener – the recipe works without sweetener or with a few drops of natural liquid stevia.
  • Chocolate Chips – you can swap the chocolate chips for crushed pecans, walnuts, peanuts, or shredded coconut.

    Last minute find for a Holiday get together of Health Coaches….and this was a HIT! I made it into a bar form, cut in squares, and served with a dollup of whip! Thank you!

  2. Can the cookie dough be baked using the recipe provided? Or would some adjustment need to be made?

  3. 5 stars
    I made this tonight. I used keto brown sugar instead of crystalline sweetener and it worked great. Absolutely delicious!

  4. 5 stars
    Fast and easy way to satisfy the sweet tooth! I added a dash of carob powder and substituted vanilla creme stevia drops for the sweetener. No need for vanilla extract.

  5. 5 stars
    Easy and perfect for a delicious quick craving for cookie dough and chocolate chips. (I used a sugar free salted caramel chip! Yum!) Thank you for your great recipes and all the work you put into creating these delicious recipes!
