It's almost summer here in New Jersey, finally, after a bunch of Nor'easters including a few inches of snow on Easter Monday, in April. We are definitely ready for warm weather and time at the pool. This is the time of year I find myself reaching for ice cream, popsicles, and no-bake desserts more than anything else. Who really wants to turn on the oven when it is 80 or 90 degrees outside? Not me.
I love my no-bake cheesecakes and have a hard time deciding whether to make the cookie dough cheesecake or the berry cheesecake. Those are great for company and entertaining. But when I just want a cool bite of something to pop into my mouth these healthy cookie dough bites are the way to go.
This is one of the first recipes I ever came created in the early days of blogging in 2016. I have the photos from then but lost the little scrap of paper I wrote this recipe on. It's been on my list to redo ever since.
How to Make Keto Cookie Dough Bites
If you've ever made a cookie before you can make these! You just make cookie dough, freeze it, and dip it in chocolate. You can't get any easier or more delicious than that!
I went through a cookie dough phase last summer while I was pregnant so I cheated a little and just used the cookie dough layer from my no-bake cookie dough cheesecake in this recipe too. I love it in all shapes and applications but these poppable keto cookie dough bites may be my favorite.
What Mold Should I Use?
I recommend making these in a silicone mold. I used a peanut butter cup mold from Amazon but you can really use any size mold. You want each cavity to hold about ½ an ounce. If your mold is smaller you may need more chocolate to coat all the cookie dough bites.
After you stir the dough ingredients together, you freeze them in a mold, and then dip into melted chocolate. The chocolate part can be a little messy but no one I know has ever complained about having to lick melted chocolate off their fingers.
These harden instantly since the frozen dough chills the melted chocolate. It's like magic. Once I've covered all of the cookie dough bites in chocolate I store in the freezer for that perfect cool treat.
Expert Tip for Keto Cookie Dough Bites
My tip for easily coating these is to use toothpicks. Use one toothpick to poke the keto cookie dough bite and dip it in the chocolate and then use another toothpick to ease it off the first toothpick.
A few of them look a little messy but every last one was delicious. Just kidding. I didn't eat them ALL today but I certainly thought about it. If you prefer you can just keep these in the fridge but I love them frozen. They are just like the chunks of cookie dough in cookie dough ice cream. No digging down the sides required.
I hope you enjoy these healthy keto cookie dough bites as much as I did!
- To make the cookie dough stir together all the ingredients (except the chocolate chips) until smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips. Freeze for at least 3-4 hours until solid.
- To make the chocolate heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Heat for another 30 seconds. Stir until the chocolate melts. (Heat for an additional 30 seconds if necessary). Add the coconut oil and stir until smooth.
- Pop the frozen cookie dough out of the silicone mold. Poke with a toothpick and dip into the melted chocolate. Transfer to a waxed paper lined baking sheet. Repeat until you've coated all the cookie dough bites. Store in the freezer.
