Raw low carb cookie dough, rolled in to delicious truffles and dipped or drizzled in dark chocolate. The perfect no-bake indulgence! Updated recipe with a how-to video.
This is such an easy and fun low carb treat, and so delicious, I thought it deserved a little update with a how-to video!
Raise your hand if you’ve ever gorged yourself on raw cookie dough. Alright, alright, I won’t ask you to identify yourself so visibly. I understand, I truly do. Oh, the shame, the shame of having made a whole batch of cookie dough, with every intention of having a full batch of cookies at the end. Telling yourself you will not indulge, you will NOT eat the raw dough, you WILL manage to get those cookies safely into the oven so that you can share them with friends and family. But somehow, a strange fog seems to take over your brain as you beat the ingredients together and shape the cookies. Bits of dough and chocolate manage to make their way to your mouth seemingly of their own accord. Time warps in some mysterious way and there you are on the other side of your cookie-making venture, with only a few baked cookies and an enormous tummy ache.
Perhaps some of the shame would be lessened if you knew how many others had this same experience. I’d venture a guess that a good portion of the female population has had this experience at least once in their lives. I myself have had the experience a few times back in my flour and sugar-eating days. I even have friends who have confessed to making a batch of dough with the express purpose of eating it, no baking intended. You are not alone.
Well, darlings, now is your chance to indulge without shame, and without risk to your health. These little treats are meant to be eaten raw. And as they contain no sugar and no flour, there is nothing shameful about them. They are delicious little low carb gems to be enjoyed at will and you can share them with friends and family or keep them all to yourself.
