You guys.

This is everything I’ve ever dreamed of and I know you have a lot of questions…

Can you eat raw cookie dough?

Most store-bought brands? Nope!

So what’s a girl to do?

I wanted a cookie dough that I could safely eat, without worrying about getting sick. Although, if I’m being really honest, I’ll probably still eat the unsafe cookie dough. 😉

Is it safe to eat raw flour?

No! It’s unsafe to eat raw flour due to harmful bacteria.

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 an eggless Edible Cookie Dough Recipe, it’s also flourless!

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 to make edible cookie dough without flour?

Oats!

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. 😉

Basically, I replaced the “unsafe flour” with homemade oat flour. #winning

I based this edible cookie dough recipe off of my chewy chocolate chip cookies.

What are the ingredients in edible cookie dough?

  1. Butter
  2. Granulated sugar
  3. Brown sugar
  4. Vanilla
  5. Milk
  6. Homemade oat flour
  7. Salt
  8. Chocolate chips

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, but I actually really enjoy it. There’s something completely satisfying about it.

How to make edible cookie dough?

  • Cream together (I love this hand mixer):
    • butter
    • brown sugar
    • granulated sugar
    • a little milk
    • vanilla
  • Once fluffy, beat in:
    • homemade oat flour (measure out old fashioned oats and pulsed them in a food processor)
    • salt
  • Once that’s combined, stir in 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!

No chilling.

No baking.

Just eating.

I have pinned this for the future. I am one of those who doesn’t want to eat raw flour (though I just found out it was an issue a couple of years ago) I love that you’re using oat flour…and there better not be an issue with that because I don’t want to give up overnight oats! 🙂 I have the feeling that the oat flour tastes a lot better than the raw flour anyway. Great idea…can’t wait to try it!


This recipe is way tastier than the one I made before (using flour!)! I ate some immediately, then chilled the rest. Rolled it into balls and froze some for when I need a little treat for later! Love the oats! I kept some a bit coarser on purpose for the oat-y texture. Thanks!

Hi Lindsay! I wouldn’t suggest omitting the milk as they’ll be too dry. I suppose you could try water and then yes, they’d be fine at room temperature 🙂

This looks awesome and I can’t wait to try it! Can you tell me how long it can be stored and how do you usually store it?

Thank you!

Hi Ashlii! Thank you! 🙂 You can store it in the fridge (in a sealed container) for at least a week… but it won’t last that long 😉

It’s cookie dough! I’m not gonna worry about serving size. Although I’m willing to share if my family is very, very nice to me.

OMG that’s GENIUS! I think it would be AMAZING as a frosting. You MIGHT need to thin it out with more milk to make it a bit more spreadable.


Tried other GF cookie dough recipes and they were really grainy, like sand. This one is nothing like that though – the ground oats are a perfect compliment to the other ingredients. Even if we weren’t going GF I’d probably opt for this recipe over cookie dough made with regular flour… it’s THAT good! Should come with some kind of warning though about the addictive nature! I usually make a double batch or the kids have it gone before I get much. Last time we made a triple batch – that was just about right! 😂


I just made your cookie dough very very good and easy. Thank you! I ran out of flour and was looking for treats to make with no flour. I thought there want be anything good but your cookie dough is amazing. Can you cook this dough. If you can make it into cookies what would the oven be at and for how long? Thank you again great idea.


I made it the regular way for the kids (they loved it). Then I made it using Swerve granular and Lakanto Golden monkfruit sweetener for me. Just as yummy!


I can’t wait to try this! I am pregnant and have been craving cookie dough 🙂 would the leftovers freeze well? I don’t want to eat it all in one day lol


This recipe tastes absolutely delicious! It lasts me 1-4 days depending on my mood haha but if you don’t have eating habits as unhealthy as mine this is definitely a good serving size, and if you want to make a stash like me just doubke the recipe. Personally I decided to chill the dough because I prefer it firm, it makes my stomach less upset since I have mild digestion issues. Overall, I love this, especially because it’s so hard to find a recipe with no flour or eggs. Thank you so much for sharing! You are my food craving lifesaver😂


This is just what I was looking for. I didn’t have any chocolate chips on hand but I did have raisins. Figured what the heck, ought to taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie dough.
Wonderful!!!!
This is a keeper recipe for sure!
