Low Carb Cookie Dough
If you love cookie dough you’re going to love this easy-to-make keto cookie dough recipe. It’s my favorite sugar-free cookie dough and it’s healthy for you. I’ve got a mad sweet tooth and one of these tasty low carb cookie dough balls always helps satisfy my urge for sweets.
Almond flour plays the biggest role in this keto cookie dough recipe and helps keep this cookie dough low carb. I haven’t tested this recipe with coconut flour. For a great coconut flour version check out the Coconut Flour Cookie Dough from Beaming Baker.
Almond flour is higher in carbs than some other grain-free flour alternatives but it’s also higher in fat and protien making it a better option that most. The carbs in this healthy chocolate chip cookie dough come from the almond flour.
Working with almond flour can be tricky if you’re not used to it. Remember when measuring almond flour to spoon your flour into your measuring cup, then level it. Do not dip your measuring cup into the flour then level, it will be too much almond flour.
Almond flour looses moisture in the freezer but absorbs moisture from the air when it defrosts. If you add it to your keto cookie dough recipe too soon, it’ll suck the wet ingredients right up. If you store almond flour in the freezer you’ll want to bring it to room temperature before you use it.
You don’t have to add the sugar-free chocolate chips (or chunks) to this keto cookie dough recipe, but they really do bring this low carb cookie dough to the next level. You can add chopped nuts, or your favorite add-ins.

While the net carbs on this low carb cookie dough may look incorrect, they are correct. Net carbs are calculated by removing the fiber grams and grams of sugar alcohols. Fiber and sugar alcohols don’t raise your insulin, or blood glucose levels so you can subtract them from the total carb amount, giving you the net carbs.
See the bottom of the keto cookie dough recipe card below for the estimated net carbs. Please note that the carbs in this low carb cookie dough recipe may vary depending on the exact brand and ingredients you use.
