Although many of us have done it without consequence, eating regular cookie dough raw is never recommended. Raw eggs can contain bacteria that cause a number of foodborne illnesses.

Ingredients you need

- Almond flour: For the best keto cookie dough, you really need a fine almond flour. Even brands that say finely ground on the package are often quite coarse. I recommend Bob’s Red Mill or King Arthur Baking. Many readers like Blue Diamond as well.
- Collagen: Collagen protein helps give the dough a softer, stickier quality that’s more reminiscent of conventional cookie dough. It also gives this recipe a nutritional boost! However, if you don’t want to use it, you can add another ½ cup of almond flour instead.
- Powdered sweetener: A confectioner’s style sweetener is imperative here, to avoid any grittiness.
- Chocolate chips: I like using keto-friendly mini chocolate chips to get better distribution throughout the dough. The mini chips from People’s Keto are perfect for this recipe.
- Dark chocolate: If you plan on making keto cookie dough truffles, you can dip them or drizzle them with melted chocolate. I did half of mine fully dipped, and the other half simply had a drizzle overtop.
- Cocoa butter: Keto chocolate tends to be quite thick when you melt it, making it hard to dip truffles. A little cocoa butter helps melt the chocolate more smoothly and thins it out a bit. You can use coconut oil as well, but it makes them much more melty at room temperature.
- Pantry staples: Butter, vanilla, salt.
Step by step directions
1. Combine the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, sweetener, collagen, and salt. Make sure to break up any clumps in the almond flour and sweetener.
2. Stir in the wet ingredients: Stir in the butter and vanilla extract until the dough comes together. If the dough is crumbly, add water a few teaspoons at a time. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Seriously… that’s all it takes to make keto cookie dough!
To make truffles
1. Freeze the balls: Place the balls on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid, about 1 hour.
2. Melt the chocolate: In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, combined the chocolate and cocoa butter, stirring until smooth.
3. Dip or Drizzle: Dip half of the cookie dough balls into the melted chocolate and toss to coat. Place the remaining melted chocolate in a ziploc bag and snip off a tiny corner. Drizzle the chocolate over the remaining truffles. Refrigerate all the truffles until the chocolate is set, about 20 minutes.
