edible chocolate chip cookie dough

I’ve been dreaming of this recipe for a LONG time. If there’s one thing that I like more than warm chocolate chip cookies, it’s eating the cookie dough. But since it’s unsafe to eat raw eggs and raw flour, I created a cookie dough recipe that has NEITHER of those 2 things. WIN WIN WIN!

There’s a cookie dough shop here in Nashville that is close to one of our favorite parks. We go over there from occasion to get edible cookie dough and EVERY time, I keep saying that I need my own homemade recipe. This one is EVEN BETTER than what I get at that little cookie dough shop and I’m excited for you to try it!

To keep things simple, I used my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and simple adjusted it so that it was safe to eat. This meant leaving out the eggs and baking the flour for a few minutes so that it is safe to eat. Since this is an eggless cookie dough recipe, I subbed in a little bit of milk (regular milk or a plant based milk will work just fine) so that the dough wasn’t too dry.

I’m seriously obsessed with this easy edible cookie dough and think that you need to try it TODAY! ;D

safe to eat cookie dough

Is raw flour safe to eat?

Everyone knows that raw eggs aren’t safe to eat but many people, myself included up until recently, do not know that raw flour is not considered safe to eat either.

To solve this problem, we’re simple going to bake the flour in the oven for about 5 minutes so that it’s cooked and safe to mix into our dough. EASY!

How to make this Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough:

This recipe is ridiculously easy to throw together!

As stated above, we’ll first bake out flour.

Then we’ll start the cookie dough by creaming together the butter and sugars. I just did this with a whisk instead of dirtying my standmixer but you can obviously do that as well. Then add in all of the remaining ingredients, waiting to stir in the chocolate chips at the end.

If you happen to watch the video, I forgot to show putting the milk in but there is a little milk in this.

Is this edible cookie dough vegan?

Since there are no eggs in this recipe, it’s very easy to adapt this to make it vegan. Simple use a vegan butter OR coconut oil in place of the butter and swap the milk for any plant based milk that you prefer.

OH and make sure to use a dark chocolate or other dairy free chocolate chips. Easy vegan edible cookie dough!

  1. How much flour does the recipe call for? The recipe says 1/2 cups but that doesn’t seem like enough & it looks like a lot more flour in the video

    • You’re right that is a typo! It’s supposed to be 1 1/2 cups of flour 

      • I made the mistake of 1/2 cup too and was so confused as to why it was runny. I thought I used the wrong vegan butter. Then I saw this comment. I’d definitely try fixing the typo if you can so others don’t run into the same trouble. It’s delicious, BTW! 

  2. Very good recipe and easy to follow. A draw back, however, was ours tasted quite buttery as the recipe did not exactly specify whether to use 8 tablespoons of melted or unmelted butter. It didn’t specify to melt it at all, it was only from watching the Instagram video that I saw to melt it. I’m assuming from our results that it means 8 tablespoons melted. Despite this minor issue the recipe is fantastic. 

  3. All good but it got a bit chewy here… anyone a tip to avoid this, did I overdo it? Didn’t whisk it so micj though 👐🏼

    • hmm. Sorry to hear that it didn’t turn out quite right. I’ve never had it come out chewy. Might have just needed a little more liquid. You could try adding in a splash more milk

  4. I just found out about the flour thing recently and was completely thrown! I wondered how to make cookie dough edible, so I will definitely have to try this!

  5. How long is it good for if refrigerated?

  6. For someone like me who loves cookie dough just as much (or maybe more?) than baked cookies, this was so amazing. Thanks for the deliciousness!
