I'll admit – most of the recipes that I make with Fathead dough are savory – you can see the full collection (and video tutorial!) here:

The Ultimate Guide to FatHead Dough

But recently I've been wanting to make more sweet recipes. Given the amount of cheese in this dough, you might be surprised. But if you think about it, mozzarella and cream cheese are actually quite mild – so it really can work! 

So I amended my recipe for Low Carb Chocolate Croissants and set about working on making cookies! 

How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies

Make the base of the fat head dough by placing some shredded mozzarella and cream cheese in a medium size microwaveable bowl. Microwave for one minute, stir and then cook for another 30 seconds. Set aside.
 
In a stand mixer, beat together softened butter, eggs, and sweetener. Lakanto is my preferred choice these days, and you can get 20% off if you use coupon code SAFTC!

Stir in some almond flour and baking powder, then add the mozzarella mixture. At this point you'll be forgiven for thinking that the two mixtures will never combine, but they really will!

Combine thoroughly, then stir in some low carb chocolate chips.  I used Know Better Chocolate Chips, which you can buy from Netrition. They're sweetened with allulose, and they're zero carb! But you could also use the dark chocolate mini chips from Lily’s!

Let the dough cool slightly, then wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 15 minutes.
 
Divide the dough into 12 balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.

Bake for 13-15 minutes in a preheated oven or until cooked through and golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Once cool, store in an airtight container.
 
The final result is definitely NOT cheesy. They are super soft and chewy – almost cakey. If you're a fan of fathead dough I *definitely* recommend that you try these cookies! They're super filling, too – so one cookie is perfectly satisfying!

Lily's also makes Chocolate Salted Caramel chi[s---absolutely FABULOUS!!--and butterscotch flavored chips. Because one of the women in my local group (of our church---we have members all over the US) cannot stand chocolate, I'll use the butterscotch chips for one batch, but the Chocolate Salted Caramel for all the rest! Thank you for posting this recipe. I'm not new to keto, having begun my journey on Sept.1, 2020, but I am new to fathead dough, so this cookie recipe is going to be a high priority, along with pizza.
