Who doesn't love cookie dough??? Seriously, cookie dough is yum! Now, a low carb Healthy Edible (aka egg free) Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough may be the best thing since cookie dough ice cream.
Holiday seasons are always so tough in regards to the amount of sweets lying around. With the new year it's always nice to start it off on the right foot with your nutrition. However, I am definitely not a fan of depriving myself; it just makes me binge and want more of what ever I am being deprived of. I can't say that I won't eat any sugar, but I can say I am going to make healthier treat options. I am a big fan of healthier options.
This Edible Cookie Dough for 1 is a quick and easy treat you can make. I used a combination of brown coconut sugar and the KetoseSweet Steviva granulated sugars as healthier options. Both are low carb and low calorie (KetoseSweet has 1 calorie) sugars. I personally found using a combination of sugars (especially in regards to sugar substitutes) helps with flavor as well as avoiding a sometimes bitter taste that occurs with sugar substitutes.
This Healthy Edible Cookie Dough recipe is super quick and easy to make (10 minutes tops) and will definitely help satisfy any sweet cravings.
I was lucky enough to be given some KetoseSweet Steviva Granulated Sugar to participate in a little recipe challenge. Baking and creating with something new is right up my alley. Baking and creating with something that is new and healthy is definitely mind kind of fun. I loved experimenting and having fun with a product I knew wasn't going to completely derail my fitness and healthy living goals. KetoseSweet by Steviva is a keto friendly sweetener.
