Keto/Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough






These don't crumble. They disappear!

Hi Loves!

So I was sitting and brainstorming some ideas for fat bombs recently and I decided that I wanted cookies. Isn't that the way? You sit and plan for a healthy lifestyle, Keto in my case, and immediately your mind goes to the decadent and the sweet. I couldn't get it out of my head so I decided to mold a chocolate chip cookie dough recipe into a more Keto/Low Carb friendly option. That's just the stubborn lady in me that wants her sugar-free cake and to eat it too.

Since the recipe is completely safe without baking, this make for a wonderful snack and it really satisfy the sweet tooth like noone's business. In fact, just this evening my husband made some delicious asian-flavored burgers and we had them Keto style, with butter lettuce buns, some mayo and a little red onion to kick the flavor into high gear. After all of that messy, savory, spicy goodness, it was natural that we would dig some after meal sweets. So we pounded a couple of these, fresh from the oven, and I even slathered on a bit of sugar free chocolate icing.

So, let's get on into it.

Ingredients:

Grass Fed Butter - 1 Stick (4 oz.)
Almond Flour - 1 1/2 Cup
Swerve Confectioners Sweetener - 3/4 Cup
Sugar Free Chocolate Chips - 1 Cup
Vanilla Bean Paste - 1 tsp.
Pinch of Salt

The first step is easy: take the butter out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter to come to room temperature. Once it has done that, drop it and the vanilla paste into your mixer with the whisk attachment. Whisk it up until the butter is all around the bowl. Then you toss in the sweetener continue whisking until the sweetener is evenly distributed through the butter. Lastly add the flour and salt and whisk it in the mixer until it turns crumbly. At this point, you add the chips and CONTINUE to let the mixer distribute everything evenly. When it's done, mix the dough around with a spatula to get any of the last little bits clinging to the bowl. 

Yeah. It should look like that!

From here, it depends on how you want to divy the dough up for consumption. I prefer to use a small cookie scoop and make little bite sized balls then throw them into the freezer. You could also just put the dough into a jar and spoon it out when you want it. 




You could also put a bunch of toppings on the dough. Icing, chocolate syrup, mint ice cream. The sky's the limit. Let's have a little crowd interactivity and if you make this recipe, send me a photo of your topping selection! Bonus points if you keep it low carb! Otherwise, please leave a comment and share if you enjoyed this recipe. Have a great day!


Even the duckies love a good treat now and again! Except instead of tossing them some bread or cookies, try going to the store and springing for a big bag of sunflower seeds. You can get a 20 pound bag of sunflower seeds for around $10 at Lowe's. That will feed your little feathered friends for a few weeks and will be better on their little bellies than a bunch of white bread. We've got a bunch of mating pairs of mallards and canadian geese running around with their little peepers tagging along. The two in the above are slacking but I'm sure we'll see some little fuzz balls running around soon!
