Low-Carb, Low-Calorie Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I am not ashamed to say (although I probably should be) that I have eaten raw cookie dough.  I know, I know - it's terrible for many reasons (including the fact that it contains raw eggs).  Well, this cookie dough recipe is made for EATING, and not for cooking!  In fact, if you tried to bake this cookie dough, you'd probably end up with a big ol' mess on your hands (and on your cookie sheet).  It's also the perfect way to enjoy my homemade, low-carb chocolate chips.  A little of this stuff is all you need to satisfy your cookie dough craving.  Not only is it low-carb, but it's also low-calorie, and you KNOW how I love recipes that meet both of those criteria!  ;)

Please note that the nutritional stats only include the cookie dough, because some people prefer to use their own chocolate chip recipe or even buy their sugar-free chocolate chips.  If you use my recipe for chocolate chips, I have included the additional nutritional information at the very end of this post (so you don't have to sit down and figure out the math).  You're welcome.  ;)

  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 5 packets Truvia
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons low-carb chocolate chips
  1. Combine all ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and thoroughly mix with a fork.
  2. Add chocolate chips and stir just until the chips have been distributed throughout the mixture.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Yields: 4 servings
