Edible eggless Cookie Dough Recipe comin’ at ya! You guys. This is everything I’ve ever dreamed of. Cookie dough that I can safely eat, without worrying about getting sick. Although, if I’m being really honest, I’ll probably still eat the unsafe cookie dough. 😉
A few days ago, I had a serious craving for some cookie dough. I was about to whip up a batch of monster cookies, but then I decided to create a new recipe for you guys. I started doing a little research on edible cookie dough and found out that not only are they (who are they anyway 😉 ) saying that it’s unsafe to eat raw eggs, but it’s unsafe to eat raw flour!!!!!!
Somebody out there is trying to ruin my life.
Why can’t a girl just eat some raw cookie dough without worrying about getting sick?!
Well ladies (and gentlemen), I have found the solution.
Not only is this Edible Eggless Cookie Dough Recipe, um, eggless, it’s also flourless!
Nobody’s gonna stop this girl from gettin’ some cookie dough.
I was super bummed when I found out that it was unsafe to eat raw flour. Now, while I don’t really care…I’ll risk it 😉 , I figure there are people out there who would enjoy a recipe for cookie dough that’s completely safe to eat.
I was at a complete loss – how do I make cookie dough without flour – when I realized that you can turn oatmeal into flour, by simply pulsing it into a fine flour with a food processor. I did a ton of research and haven’t found anything that says you can’t eat raw oatmeal. If someone out there claims you can’t…please don’t tell me. 😉
I based this edible flourless, eggless cookie dough recipe off of my chewy chocolate chip cookies.
To make this safe to be eaten raw, while still having the beloved cookie dough flavor and texture, I swapped the flour for homemade oat flour, left out the eggs, cornstarch, and baking soda, and used softened butter instead of melted.
Let me just say, that I am now a very happy lady.
The taste of this cookie dough is spot on. It tastes like really good cookie dough. Sugar-y, buttery, vanilla-y, chocolate-y. ‘Nough said.
The texture of this cookie dough is ahhhh-mazing, if I do say so myself. I’ll be honest, it’s not going to be as smooth as a normal cookie dough. There’s a bit of “grittiness” – in a really good way – to the dough. This comes from the sugars and the oat flour. It’s definitely a heartier cookie dough, but I actually really enjoy it. There’s something completely satisfying about it.
Speaking of the oat flour. Super simple. Like I said above 👆, all I did was measure out some old fashioned oats and pulsed them in my food processor. That’s it!
The taste? Awesome.
The texture? Ahh-mazing.
But how do we make it?
Luckily, it’s super easy. You’ll be sitting down with a bowl of edible, flourless eggless cookie dough in no time.
Cream together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, a little milk, and vanilla. Once fluffy, we’re going to beat in our homemade oat flour and salt. Once that’s combined, all that’s left to do is stir in the chocolate chips. Use whatever you have on hand. I always have semi-sweet, but feel free to mix it up and use dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or go crazy and use a combination of both!
And now? The best part…we’re done!
This edible eggless cookie dough recipe will surely satisfy any cookie dough craving and is great for those days you don’t want to be a rebel and eat cookie dough safely. 😉
