The most delicious edible cookie dough recipe
I don’t know about you, but I always prefer the cookie dough over the baked cookies. The dough is deliciously sweet and sooo satisfying when eaten by the spoon! Whenever I head to my kitchen to make cookies, chances are I’m gonna eat at least a few cookies’ worth of dough.
I’m not sure if this is why I do it, but eating raw cookie dough brings me back to my childhood. I remember going to my friends houses and buying cookie dough by the roll. We would usually bake a few to eat, but the best part was eating the raw dough by the square or slice. My friends and I could seriously devour the entire roll of dough without baking one cookie…
I know this isn’t the best habit, especially considering the health concerns that are involved with eating raw cookie dough. I just can’t help it!
However, I know that this is a guilty pleasure that must be broken, and for that reason I’m graduating to cookie dough’s safer alternative with a batter that’s actually deemed safe to consume. And, not only is this cookie dough edible, it’s also made with only five ingredients! A delicious and sweet snack that is also super easy to make? Count me in for sure.
Next time you head to the store, be sure to stock up on the handful of ingredients needed to make this recipe. You won’t be disappointed!
Ingredients used in edible cookie dough
Edible healthy cookie dough is an easy, five-ingredient recipe. Most of these items are probably already in your pantry, especially if you have a big sweet tooth or love to bake!
I love to leave this dough in a little container and eat it by the spoonful. However, you can make this batter into delicious bite sized cookie dough rounds and then just leave a stash of these in the fridge for easy access. Whenever I’m craving chocolate or need a little boost of something sweet, this quick snack does the trick! I love having them right there in my fridge, ready to enjoy.
Here’s everything you’ll need to make your delicious healthy dessert:
Mini chocolate chips
That’s it! Told you it was so easy 🙂
The tools you’ll need to make healthy cookie dough
There are only two items you’ll need for your healthy dessert. First, you’ll need a mixing bowl and second, some sort of stirring utensil, such as a spatula or spoon. Again, that’s it! So easy to make and very little clean up.
How to make healthy safe to eat cookie dough
The best part about this recipe is that it’s a no-bake dessert that is essentially ready in no time at all. It requires a bit of refrigeration, but that’s it!
Start by combining the coconut oil, almond butter, and maple syrup in the bowl and mix it well. Make sure this mixture is nice and smooth.
Add in the almond flour next and start mixing. Once the dough starts to look cumbly, add in the chocolate chips and continue mixing.
Towards the end you will have to use your hands to mix the dough and create a nice, smooth dough ball. You can leave as is and enjoy or roll into bite sized balls for easy eating.
A healthier edible cookie dough recipe
Every single ingredient used to make healthy edible cookie dough was hand selected to create the healthiest dessert possible. Together, these ingredients create a flavor that is unmatched!
I often use almond butter in place of peanut butter, both for the nutrients and the taste. Almond butter contains healthy amounts of copper, phosphorus, and magnesium.
I love to use coconut oil in place of other processed oils as it contains some good healthy fats and can help increase good cholesterol.
By now, you’ve probably seen me mention maple syrup once or twice. It’s just the best all-natural sweetener I’ve ever tried! It tastes delicious and doesn’t include nearly as much sugar as processed white sugar.
When compared to all-purpose flour, almond flour is far more nutrient-rich. In fact, this type of flour contains protein, fiber, calcium, and iron.
When choosing my chocolate, I like to go for all-natural brands like hu kitchen chocolate chunks or enjoy life foods. By going with an organic, all-natural brand, you’re able to reduce the amount of preservatives and artificial ingredients present in your dessert.
Cookie dough recipe ingredient swap options
If you find yourself wanting to mix and match the ingredients in this recipe, you may be interested in these ideas!
Almond butter: Almond butter can be swapped with cashew or peanut butter. SunButter, a popular nut-free butter will also work. Note: Changing the nut butter used may alter the final flavor.
Maple syrup: If you don’t like maple syrup, you can use molasses or honey in its place.
Chocolate chips: The chocolate chips used in this recipe don’t have to be dairy free dark chocolate! You can also use milk chocolate, or, for something a little different, white chocolate! Just note that swapping this chocolate may make this recipe no longer dairy free.
