I'm not really sure what sparked my interest in frying things ..maybe it was this gigantic container of coconut oil I just purchased. But who knows…
This is the second keto-dough I've tried frying(okay actually the third but the 2nd attempt was a complete failure so we don't need to discuss that, lol).
This dough uses a combination of coconut flour and almond flour where-as my first original dough uses almond flour only.
In all honestly I did prefer the all almond flour dough just slightly more, taste-wise but that's only because I'm not a huge fan of the coconut flour's flavour to begin with.
I do have to say though, the coconut flour version may fry a bit better and did seem to be a less crumbly more cookie-like textured dough.
So with that said, I will link the original dough in this post along with the one I made today so you can decide which you prefer (or which you have the correct ingredients for!).
I wasn't going to post this as a recipe, it was more just me messing around but I really did enjoy the dough and it was SO extremely filling. I think it's a great sweet-tooth killer that's actually good for you!
I recommend dipping it in my cream cheese frosting listed below as that was literally the icing on the cake.
I also fried a few small ones with cream cheese inside and then rolled them in cinnamon sugar in another attempt so you definitely can get creative with this recipe.

Ingredients (Serves 3):
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1 tbsp vital wheat gluten (optional, helps with texture-use an extra tbsp of almond flour if not using)
- 1 tbsp splenda
1/2 tbsp truvia
1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of cinnamon(optional)
- 3 tbsp(45g) mini or regular sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Krisda typically)
Coconut oil for frying (roughly 6 cups or enough to just about cover the dough ball) *I bought this container. You can re-use the oil as well.
Optional Cream Cheese Frosting:
- Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Stir in your beaten egg, melted butter and vanilla until thick dough starts to form,
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Form the dough with your hands, combining the ingredients and forming a ball.
- Place the ball in the fridge while you heat your oil on high, in a large frying pan.
- Using a thermometer, heat your oil until 375* is reached, then fry your dough (turn down the oil or remove from heat so it does not go into the 400* range when frying).
- Remove the dough from the fridge and form it into 3 balls.
- Using a large (preferably)round spatula place the dough balls gently into the oil.
- Fry for roughly 1-2 minutes (more or less depending on how cooked you want the inside to be).
- Rotate it a few times in the oil before removing and setting on a piece of paper towel to drain.
- Optional: Combine the frosting ingredients and use as a dip to serve for cookie dough ball with! (SO GOOD). Enjoy!
