Since I grew up in South Africa, I only experienced the joy of Ben ‘n Jerry’s Cookie Dough Ice Cream in my early twenties. I was obsessed right away.

Then, when I moved back to South Africa a couple of years ago, I was not only eating a healthier diet, but Ben ‘n Jerry’s is not even available here. So, I have to improvise and make my own. That starts with creating the perfect edible cookie dough that is keto friendly.

I think we came pretty close with this recipe. I made the mistake of letting my two year old try a piece and now he’s obsessed as well. He’s always asking when we’re making it again. I think that’s a tell tale sign of a good recipe.

So, what I love most about this recipe, is how quick it is to throw together – and there’s no cooking involved! Raw, no cook Keto Cookie Dough is where it’s at!

Cookie Dough On The Keto Diet:

Is Cookie Dough Keto?

It all depends on what kind of cookie dough we’re talking about. If you’re talking storebought sugar-laden cookie dough – then hell no! BUT, if you’re talking homemade keto cookie dough – then hell YES!

The absolute best thing about a Low-Carb, Keto or even Paleo diet, is that it’s not really a “diet” (in the traditional sense) at all. It’s all about choosing your ingredients wisely.

You can recreate all your favorite things into 100% guilt-free things, just by choosing better ingredients. It gets to the point where it almost feels like you’re eating unhealthy, but you’re not! I mean, think about it – how the heck can cookie dough be “healthy”?

Well, it can be – if you make it with the right ingredients. Homemade anything is better than storebought – and infinitely healthier.

How To Make Edible Keto Cookie Dough with Almond Flour

I’ve tried various combinations of gluten-free flours, but found that the best option is Almond Flour. It gives the most authentic flavor, in my opinion.

When I did my research and looked at dozens of different recipes and feedback from real people, I came to the conclusion that an essential ingredient to making the perfect cookie dough is, you guessed it – baking soda.

It gives the cookie dough that authentic “cookie dough” flavor and makes it irrisistable. 

Keto Edible Cookie Dough requires just a few simple ingredients:

•  Almond Flour

•  Coconut Oil

•  Baking Soda

•  Honey

•  Sugar Free Chocolate Chips

•  A Pinch Of Salt

All you need to do is mix these simple ingredients together and voilà! You’ve got cookie dough! Raw recipes are the best, because you’re literally just mixing a few things and then you’re done.

Keto Cookie Dough Balls:

I like to take the time and portion the cookie dough into little bite sized balls and then keep them in a container in the fridge. 

I use about 2 teaspoons worth of the cookie dough mix and roll them between my hands until they’re smooth little balls. Then, whenever I walk past the fridge – I grab one.

Yep, it definitely gets eaten really fast – especially when everybody else in the house does the same thing I do.

This keto cookie dough recipe makes chocolate chip cookie dough, but the chocolate chips can easily be omitted to transform the recipe into keto sugar cookie dough. It’s JUST as delicious without the chocolate chips. 

Without the chocolate chips, it’s also dairy-free cookie dough.  I chose to make this cookie dough recipe with coconut oil, and without butter, for that exact reason.  (Although, you can always choose dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate to add to the cookie dough.)

    1. Hi. This is a Keto recipe, so no – you cannot use regular flour. I also removed the rating from your comment, since you cannot give a recipe one star if you didn’t make it. Hope that clears things up for you.
