This vegan cookie dough recipe is so darn delicious and easy to make! It takes just 5 minutes and it is well worth it.
If you are new to vegan cooking, I am here to tell you that ALL vegan cookie dough is edible if you want it to be!
However, if you aren’t going to be baking the cookies, there is not need for baking powder and baking soda in the recipe so that is what makes vegan edible cookie dough slightly different than its counterparts.
I love making this recipe and simply keeping it in the fridge and eating it with a spoon whenever I have a hankering for vegan edible cookie dough.
But my favorite thing to do is bring this vegan cookie dough recipe as a dish to a party or serve it when I am having a gathering!
People are OBSESSED with cookie dough and rarely have the chance to eat it because regular cookie dough is unsafe OR they just don’t think to make it all that often.
When I tell you this flies off the serving platter at parties, I am not kidding!
I love serving it with vegan graham crackers because the sweet flavor of the crackers is the perfect way to eat the vegan cookie dough!
You can also choose to serve it on disposable spoons where each person picks up a spoon and then eats the cookie dough in just one bite!
You really can’t go wrong when you bring edible vegan cookie dough to a party or for any time of day or year whenever you feel like eating your feelings!
Is Vegan Cookie Dough Safe To Eat?
YES! Vegan cookie dough is 100% safe to eat!
Because vegan cookie dough doesn’t have any eggs in it! So technically all vegan cookie dough is edible if you really want to think about it as I said above!
However, it has recently been discovered that raw flour can carry bacteria too!
If you want to be 100% safe, toast your flour on the stove for a few moments before making this recipe.
I personally do not toast my flour in advance and I have never had any issues with using it.
But I wanted to mention the safety issue in the event you wanted to take extra added precautions to make your edible cookie dough 110% safe.
No eggs and toasted flour mean you can eat as much as you want guilt-free!
Where To Buy Vegan White Chocolate Chips
This is edible chocolate chip cookie dough, but to elevate it, I ALWAYS use vegan white chocolate chips.
I am not even kidding when I say that you 100% CANNOT go wrong with using both chocolate and white chocolate chips.
But where do you find vegan white chocolate chips?
You can easily find plenty of Vegan White Chocolate Chips On Amazon!
But did you know that WALMART and your regular grocery store has vegan white chocolate chips too?!
Nestle makes a brand called “Simply Delicious” and they are a vegan line of White Chocolate Chips!
These are your two best bets! To try and order some vegan white chocolate chips from Amazon or Walmart!
Sometimes Whole Foods or your local grocery store will also carry vegan white chocolate chips as well so you just have to ask or look at the ingredients!
How To Make Edible Vegan Cookie Dough
Making edible vegan cookie dough is literally so easy!
You can choose to use coconut oil or whatever type of oil you want.
For me personally, I love using avocado oil in cooking as it is healthier and has a lot of good benefits and it tastes fantastic.
But again, you can make this vegan edible cookie dough with whatever oil you want!
My secret weapon for this cookie dough dip is graham cracker crumbs. If you do not have them on hand, you can skip this step and it will still taste good.
But the graham cracker crumbs really do elevate the flavor and set it apart from other recipes!
All you have to do is put flour, graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and salt in a bowl and use a fork to combine.
In another bowl, combine maple syrup with vanilla and the oil of your choice and stir until combined.
Now add your wet mixture to your dry mixture and stir until barely combined.
This is when you are going to want to add in your chocolate and white chocolate chips.
Be careful to fold them in so that they are well combined, but don’t overmix.
Of course, you can add in any mix-ins that you want to the vegan cookie dough such as nuts or dried fruit to make it your own!
Once it is mixed up, you can serve immediately!
Can This Vegan Cookie Dough Actually Make Cookies?
No it cannot because we have left off the baking powder and baking soda!
If you want to make actual cookies using this recipe, you will want to remove the graham crackers, add in 1 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda and bake for 12 minutes at 350F!
That is all you have to do to transfer this edible cookie dough recipe so that you can bake it and enjoy some delicious cookies!
How To Store The Vegan Edible Cookie Dough
Technically, this recipe is “shelf stable” at least for a little bit.
I wouldn’t recommend storing it on the counter, it just tastes better in the fridge so that it is chilly!
I recommend eating it in between 3-5 days as it starts to go funky around the 3rd or 4th day. It can last longer but it is better when it is fresh!
But, if you are leaving it out for a party or something like that, it won’t spoil since it uses shelf stable ingredients in the recipe!
You can also freeze the vegan edible cookie dough but make sure to remove it 24 hours in advance so that it can thaw in the fridge or else you will have a huge cookie dough brick to contend with!
