Raise your hand if you love cookie dough and can’t seem ever to have enough of it! I’m right there with you. Since Easter is nearing, I thought I would do us all a favor and come up with a dessert that includes our beloved raw cookie dough. You guys...these low carb keto cookie dough eggs are AMAZING!
Soft, flavorful no bake cookie dough dipped in sugar free chocolate is indulgent, rich, and positively delicious. I could eat these year-round and never grow tired of them. I think you are going to be able to relate. So what are you waiting for? Time to get busy!
Imagine curing your sweet tooth with edible cookie dough eggs and not having all the guilt. They are that good and much healthier than anything you can buy pre-made. Let’s look at what you’ll need.
- Sunflower Seed Flour - It’s a fantastic nut-free option that tastes great in this recipe. If you prefer you can use almond flour instead.
- Sweetener - I use a blend of erythritol, xylitol, and stevia in my recipes because it is inexpensive and tastes the closest to sugar of all the sweeteners I've tried.
- Butter - I use salted butter in this low carb cookie dough recipe. It balances the sweetness nicely.
- Cream Cheese - It’s best to soften the cream cheese before beginning.
- Vanilla - Vanilla helps enhance the other flavors in sweet recipes.
- Molasses - You are welcome to omit the molasses, but it does add some wonderful flavor. You are only adding a small amount, so it only adds 0.2 carbs per cookie dough egg.
- Sugar Free Chocolate Chips - I like to use semisweet chips to give this the classic chocolate chip cookie dough flavor.
- Sugar Free Chocolate - You can use any chocolate you enjoy, dark, semisweet, or milk.
- Coconut Oil - Using a bit of oil thins the chocolate so you don't need as much to coat the eggs.
- Sugar Free Sprinkles - Of course, the sprinkles are optional but I love the keto sprinkles that are available from The Sprinkle Company and use them whenever I can.
How to Make Sugar Free Cookie Dough
Step One: Combine the sunflower seed flour, sweetener, butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and molasses together. Mix well until everything is incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips.
Step Two: Dived the cookie dough into ten evenly sized pieces. Shape them into egg shapes and place them on a waxed lined baking sheet. Put in the fridge and chill for one hour, so they set up a bit.
Step Three: Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together until smooth. Then dip each of the cookie dough eggs into the melted chocolate. Place them on the wax paper. Add a few sprinkles, if desired. Put in the fridge so they can set up.
Feel free to add in some variety when making the treats. When taking the sugar free cookie dough eggs to a party or get-together, it’s kind of fun to have a variety of flavors.
- Nuts - Fold in ¼ - ½ cup of crushed pecans, walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts to the cookie dough. You can even use a variety of nuts together. Just crush them finely, so they are easier to eat.
- White Chocolate - In the mood for white chocolate? Dip the eggs in melted white chocolate instead. Be sure to use sugar free though!
- Nut Butter - Add a tablespoon of your favorite nut butter to the batter. This is for all the peanut butter lovers out there!
- Coconut - Feel free to add in some shredded coconut to the cookie dough. It’s important to use unsweetened coconut, or they won’t be low carb.
- Cocoa Powder - Add 2 teaspoons of cocoa to the cookie dough to make double chocolate chip cookie dough.
How Do You Store Sugar Free Cookie Dough Eggs?
Whenever you aren’t serving them, you need to be refrigerated. The chocolate on the outside of the eggs will melt quickly if left anywhere warm. Naturally, when you are serving them, be sure not to put them in direct sunlight. They will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
When serving at a party or event, it’s a good idea to keep them on ice so they are easier to eat. The easiest way is to have a bowl with ice and place the eggs on a platter on the ice. This will keep them chilled without the ice directly touching them.
Can I Freeze The Cookie Dough?
Yep! You can completely make the gluten free cookie dough eggs and place them on a lined baking sheet. Put the pan in the freezer for 2-3 hours, so the eggs are relatively solid. Then take them off of the pan and put them in a freezer bag or any freezer container. They will last in the freezer for 3-4 months. You can eat them frozen or let them defrost for a few minutes before indulging.
Do I Have To Shape Them Like Eggs?
No, you don’t have to shape them like eggs. You can leave them as circles to serve them for any occasion. We like to make them egg shaped for Easter and springtime just like my Keto Peanut Butter Eggs and Almond Joy Candies. For a complete Easter basket make some Keto Chocolate Easter Bunnies, Cadbury Cream Eggs, Bird’s Nest Cookies, and some Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies too!
- Combine the sunflower seed flour, sweetener, butter, cream cheese, vanilla, and molasses. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips
- Divide into 12 pieces. Shape each into an egg on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
- Refrigerate at least 4-6 hours or overnight.
- Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds. Once it is 75% melted stop heating it and just let it sit for the rest of the chocolate to melt.
- Dip each chilled cookie dough egg into melted chocolate. Put back on the wax paper. Refrigerate until firm. Store in the refrigerator.
