This lightweight Keto cake recipe is perfect for satisfying your cake craving in less than 10 minutes with just 1 gram of net carbs per serving!

We all crave cakes at some point, but we don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen baking cakes. So let’s make a batch of this low-carbohydrate cake batter and solve our guilt-free cake craving!
How to make Keto cookie dough
The great news is that all keto flours can be eaten raw! So you can safely make sugar-free cookie dough and eat it from the spoon without worrying too much.
All you need to make this vanilla chocolate cake batter is:
- Almond flour or almond flour.
- Coconut flour if you want to skip the coconut flour, add 4 times more almond flour, so here, instead of 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, add 8 tablespoons of almond flour.
- Erythritol granulated or powdered – I personally prefer the powder because it does not add a granular texture to the raw cookie dough.
- Unsweetened almond milk or thick cream for a more buttery and rich dough for cakes.
- Vanilla extract
- Pinch with salt
- Melted butter or melted coconut oil for a dairy-free option. Remember that coconut oil turns the dough quite hard when stored in the fridge, so I prefer melted butter for this recipe.
Combining dry ingredients
First, in a small bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, and salt. Stir to evenly combine the dry ingredients.
Mix the liquid ingredients
Now mix the melted butter, vanilla extract until the dough is formed. It should be quick, thick, slightly damp, but not runny or dry. If it is too dry, add 1 teaspoon of almond milk until the texture is your favorite texture of cake batter.

If it is too wet, add more coconut flour, 1/2 teaspoon at a time.
Bending Chocolate Chips
Finally, add the sugar-free chocolate flakes to the dough. You can use dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips or milk chips as soon as they are keto friendly.
Keto cookie dough bites
If you like precision, divide the cookie dough into 20 balls of about 1 tablespoon. Rotate each ball between your hands and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
So, when you feel like a cake, grab a ball and you know you only get 1 gram of net carbs!
However, if you don’t feel like making cake dough balls, remove the dough from the ball using a regular spoon and try to stop after 1 or 2 to keep your carbs under control!
This cookie dough can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week in an airtight container. You can also freeze the cake dough into balls for a single serving and thaw a bite of keto dough for the cakes.
When you feel like making sweets, it takes about 1 hour to thaw a tablespoon of cake batter at room temperature.
Other flavors of Keto edible cake batter
You can play with this recipe and create a range of keto edible cake flavoring flavors and make your keto snacks fun.
My favorite flavors are:
- Gingerbread cookie dough – Skip the chocolate flakes and add 1 teaspoon of gingerbread spices to the dough.
- Biscuit dough with peanut butter – reduce the melted butter to 1/4 cup and mix 2 tablespoons of natural peanut butter in the dough.
- Raspberry cookie dough – replace half of the sugar-free chocolate flakes with freeze-dried raspberries and sugar-free white chocolate flakes.
- Pumpkin cookie dough – add 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spices to the dough.
If you have any food allergies, here are some options for making this cookie dough.
- No nuts – you can change the almond flour with the same amount of sunflower or sesame seed flour.
- No dairy – For dairy-free cookie dough, use melted coconut oil instead of melted butter. I recommend taking the dough out of the fridge 20 minutes before serving to soften. In fact, coconut oil solidifies below 20 ° C, and the cake batter hardens fairly quickly in the refrigerator when you use coconut oil.
- Sweetener – the recipe works without sweetener or with a few drops of natural liquid stevia.
- Chocolate flakes – you can replace the chocolate chips with crushed pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts or chopped coconut.
