Let’s be honest, cookie dough is just as good, if not better than the actual baked cookies! I don’t think I’ve ever baked a batch of cookies without having at least a small bite of the dough.
I’ve turned that wonderful flavor into fat bombs that are super easy to make! These cookie dough fat bombs have 9 grams of fat each and only 1 gram of protein!
These cookie dough fat bombs are a great easy no-bake low carb treat!
How to Make Cookie Dough
1 cup super fine almond flour
8 tablespoons grass-fed butter, room temperature
4 ounces mascarpone cheese (see notes)
4 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup swerve confectioners
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3 ounce Lily’s Dark Chocolate bar, chopped
Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine.
In a separate bowl, add all the remaining ingredients, except for the chocolate.
Mix using a hand mixer until well combined.
Add in the dry ingredients and mix briefly.
Then fold in the chocolate.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Freeze for 10 minutes or until set. Store in the fridge for a few days or in the freezer.
Note: I prefer 4 ounces of mascarpone and 4 ounces of cream cheese, because all cream cheese lends a stronger flavor. But you can certainly omit the mascarpone and use 8 ounces of cream cheese if you’d like. This is not a cookie dough that you can bake. It’s strictly for eating as is.
Sprinkle with the shavings from the chopped chocolate.
Why Eat Keto Fat Bombs?
A Ketogenic Diet consists of a high amount of fat, moderate protein and low carbs, so the bulk of our calories come from healthy fats. If we don’t consume enough healthy fat, we run the risk of following a high protein diet which is not Keto!
Some people struggle with this concept, since we’re been told for many years that fat is bad and we should eat low/no fat. Nothing could be further from the truth!
These fats can include butter, heavy cream, coconut and coconut oil, avocados and avocado oil, mascarpone cheese, olive oil, cream cheese to name a few. For a more comprehensive list of these foods, see my Keto Foods List! For different ideas on how to use them , check out 15 Ways to Add More Fats into Your Keto Diet.
Adding these healthy fats into our meals is key, but there are times when you just don’t have enough or doesn’t quite fit into a particular meal that you’re preparing. Fat bombs are perfect for times like this, where you can consume one or two and get your healthy fats in your macros! Most recipes make a fairly decent amount and most often can be frozen, so you can always have some on hand!
Another great perk to most fat bombs is they double as a sweet treat, that doesn’t kick you out of Ketosis! Who doesn’t love a bite of something sweet, without having to make an entire cake, pie or batch of cupcakes!?
