If you love cookie dough these Frozen Keto Cookie Dough Bites will make your dreams come true. They are super easy to make and store for months in the freezer (if they last that long). These healthy cookie dough bites are the perfect sweet bite to end your days. This easy recipe is low carb, keto, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and Trim Healthy Mama friendly.
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!

Hi , is there a way to make the almond and coconut flour less grittu?
You can sift them. You can also try grinding them finer but be careful or you'll end up with almond butter.
Penny Frick says
What can you sub for the coconut oil in the chocolate coating?
It just thins the chocolate making it easier to use as a coating. You can omit it but will need more chocolate overall.

I'm leaving a 5 star rating bc I'm sure these will be awesome and otherwise I can't leave a comment
I just have a question about the amount of almond flour: Is one cup correct? because it says CUPS.
You can leave a comment without clicking on the stars. It is one cup. That is a typo and I'll fix it now 🙂
So delicious! I keep these on hand in the freezer. Instead of coating in chocolate, I added in a little melted peanut butter in to the mixture and holy cow....made a great recipe even greater!! Thanks for sharing!
Sounds wonderful, but I am allergic to tree nuts, so no almond flour for me! I would have no idea of what to substitute instead.
Sunflower flour seed flour is a great sub for almond flour. You can buy it pre-ground or just grind raw unsalted sunflower seeds to a powder.
Oat flour or coconut flour work great. You can make your own oat flour by simply grounding the oats in a blender, or you can problau funded already grounded oat flour. You can definitely find coconut flour in the store.
I have Erythritol (Powdered & Granular) and Stevia drops but I don't have any other sweeteners. Would one of these work?
I'd use powdered erythritol in the dough. You will need 1.5 to 2 times the amount listed.
These look amazing. I have a coconut allergy. What could I do to make sure they are not to moist since the coconut flour is to help with that?? I know for the coconut oil I can use butter.
You can just use additional almond flour.
AC Stewart says
Could you use coconut flour as a replacement to Almond flour? Allergic to nuts gets in the way sometimes 🙁
It's not a 1:1 sub. I'd suggest using sunflower seed flour instead. That tastes more like almond flour and isn't so dry. I'm not sure all coconut flour would taste good.
These are amazing! I've made them twice in two weeks. I use 1/4c Swerve + 1 tsp stevia for the sweetener. Coating them gets easier with practice.Thank you for the super easy and delicious recipe!
What is the sugar info on this recipe. There has to be something what with the molasses in it.
There is less than 1 gram per serving so it doesn't display in the nutrition table. 1/2 tsp of molasses has 2.5 grams of sugar. Divided by 25 is .1 gram of sugar per piece.
These are so good!! I haven't even managed to get them covered in chocolate, we ate them so fast. Thanks for an actually good tasting sugar free treat!
In case this might be helpful, I make my own sweetener using 1/2 xylitol (ground in a coffee grinder) and 1/2 Pyure sweetener. It tastes similar to gentle sweet and it's easy to mix up. I got the stuff to try your sweetener though! 🙂
Any chance this still would taste good using an alternative to xylitol? Like using Swerve or Pyure?
Yup! You can really just add either to taste. Pyure you'd use less, Swerve you'd need more.
How much more swerve would I use? Granular? Or powdered?
I'd try 1/3 cup powdered swerve and then taste the cookie dough. You can always add more.
I forgot to mark email notification
What about peanut butter can that be used in these
Sure! I bet they'd taste great with a little pb mixed in.
How much do you think I have 2 Reese’s lovers here lol and I’m thinking they would be just as satisfying as the candy. But how much would you add. I’m new to all this healthy baking
I would try 2 tbsp to start and reduce the butter to 2 tbsp. You can always add a little more as you go.
These blew my mind. I'm a cookie dough FREAK and there's hardly a difference!! The hubs and I absolutely LOVE these
Could I just use 1 cup of THM Baking Blend instead of 1 cup of almond flour?
Hi Chloe, I'm not sure baking blend tastes good raw. I have not tried it. I would mix a little bit with some butter and sweetener and try it before you make a whole batch.
Do you think it would work to sub the almond and coconut flour with the THM baking blend? I already have that on hand and hate to buy more special ingredients.
I'm not sure baking blend tastes good raw. Mix a little bit with some butter and sweetener and try it to make sure you like it before you make a whole batch.
Could you make these without the cream cheese? Lots of your thm recipes look great but I have to be dairy free.
I think you can sub in coconut cream. Just use a little bit less.
What purpose does the coconut flour serve? Could I skip it, since it's just 1 tsp? These sound great btw, I love edible cookie dough, but can't find a keto version I like. I hope this one is the winner!
Hi Lisa, the coconut flour just helps dry out the dough a bit. You can skip it. I just wanted to make sure the cookie dough bites wouldn't be too moist since I was covering them in chocolate. Make sure to come back and let me know what you think 🙂
i don't have a mold to make these in, but i'm thinking maybe take the cookie dough and scoop it (with my cookie scoop) onto waxed paper, freeze, then dip in chocolate?? it seems like it should work....
Yes, I think that will work!
