I have a soft spot for foods that take me back to childhood, and this Keto Cookie Dough does just that! They have all the flavor of traditional chocolate chip cookie dough, without the sugar, eggs, or carbs. I keep these in the fridge or freezer for those times when I need a low-carb treat.
Homemade Keto Cookie Dough You Can Eat with a Spoon
Raise your hand if you loved eating cookie dough as a kid?
I loved it as a kid, and that love has never faded.
Of course, there is the whole eating raw eggs thing and the potential of illness.
These days when I want a delicious treat, I reach for this keto cookie dough.
These edible cookie dough fat bombs are super simple to make and perfect for meal prep.
They are gluten-free, and even the kids beg for them for dessert.
Best of all, they taste even better than the original. This is one of my favorite ways to stay on track with the keto diet.
Ingredients for Making Keto Edible Cookie Dough
- Butter: I recommend using unsalted butter because this lets you control the level of salt. I would suggest omitting the salt and tasting first if you decide to make these keto chocolate chip cookie dough fat bombs with salted butter.
- Brown Sugar Substitute: I love Besti Monkfruit Allulose Blend, but Swerve works too.
- Powdered Sugar Substitute: I used Swerve Confectioners but you can use your favorite powdered sweetener. (Besti makes a great one, but I can get Swerve locally.)
- Salt: Adjust the amount of salt to your liking.
- Cream: Use heavy whipping cream. If you would like to avoid the dairy, canned coconut milk would work as well.
- Vanilla: A good quality vanilla extract adds a punch of flavor.
- Almond Flour: If you have coarse almond flour or almond meal, I recommend putting it in a food processor before using.
- Chocolate Chips: Lily’s is my go-to brand. They make both milk and dark chocolate chips.

How do you store fat bombs? Do you refrigerate fat bombs?
Because they have butter, these fat bombs are best stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Storing them in the refrigerator will yield a softer texture that you may want to eat with a spoon.
Stored in the freezer, they will be soft enough to chew easily but firm enough to pick up.
The freezer is my favorite way to store these keto cookie dough fat bombs.
How long do fat bombs last in the freezer?
Kept in a sealed container, you can expect fat bombs to last for at least three months in the freezer.
