Have you heard about the Egg-less Edible Cookie Dough Recipe trend going around? It’s all the rage around here for the last few weeks. Here is all you need to know to safely make this popular treat.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Recipe

This recipe is all the rage around here for the last few weeks. A gourmet food company came out with an edible version of Americas favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

They made their way to the grocery stores here in Charlotte and we literally checked every few days for last 3 weeks to find some left in stock! Thinking it may be awhile until we found it, we decided to try to make our own edible cookie dough.

I bought all the ingredients for the recipe and to my surprise, my husband came home that day with a jar of the gourmet kind. So I made the homemade version and compared it to the Gourmet version and they are equally dead-on the same in taste. So Instead spending a whopping $7.99 on a jar, we can now make it at home for a fraction of the cost.

Here is my version of the Edible Cookie Dough Recipe I used. I doubled the recipe because the original only made around 3 ice cream scoops worth and we are big dough eater’s so I knew we would need more next time.

EDITED: In the last couple of years there have been some findings by the FDA that raw baking flour could possibly contain the E. coli bacteria and also multiple flour recalls by General Mills have raised some concern with consuming raw flour

BOTTOM LINE: you should not eat raw flour that requires baking. I have updated this recipe with a way to toast the flour before you make the dough so it kills any harmful bacteria. You can read all about it on the Cooking Light website. Another alternative would be to use coconut flour. But with any product, please research your brand of flour to make sure it is safe to consume.

  1. Can I eat this recipe straight away or do I have to put it in the fridge and let it set for a while ?

  2. How many ounces does this recipe make?

    1. Hi Paige,
      This recipe makes around 2-2 1/2 cups of dough. So 16-20 oz.
      Kim

  3. HI umm how do you make the cookies not the cookie dough?

    1. This is not a baked cookie recipe, only for the edible dough.
      Kim

  4. Patricia Roseman says:

    Yep! This will be dangerous! But in a good way. Thanks for the tip on the flour. I supposed the raw eggs in most dough would be trouble, but did not know about flour, so “Kudos”. Trying it today, YAY!

  5. Can you use salted butter or smart balance instead of unsalted butter??

    1. Hi Serena, You can try them. The salted butter will add more salt.
      Kim

  6. Sweet mama this recipe is the bomb com!! Thanks for posting!

  7. Kayla McCarthy says:

    Can you use water instead of milk?

    1. You could try it, but it might make the dough crumble or not stick together as well. I really don’t know.
      Kim

  8. Thank you so much for being smart enough to post the dangers of eating raw flour. For years I’ve been telling bloggers about these dangers (with sources cited) and every single person deleted the comment. You are clearly one of the VERY few bloggers who actually cares about your readers rather than attention or money. Well done. You are what all bloggers should be. Best wishes to you.

  9. I imagine that toasting the flour would add extra flavor as well as making this safer to eat. I’ll have to try this this weekend. Maybe I’ll even toast the flour a little longer, see if I can get that fresh-baked cookie flavor in a raw cookie dough. ;D

    1. Interesting idea! Let me know how it comes out!
      Kim

  10. Do you have a single or two person serving version of this? I’d love to make this but I’m the only one in the house that eats this so I don’t want to make a ton. Thanks!

    1. Hi Maya,
      This recipe as it is does not make a lot of Cookie Dough. I would half it for one person. Thanks for reading!
      Kim

  11. This was yummy! Are you supposed to refrigerate the mixture before adding chocolate chips? I didn’t do this in my whole thing turn brown. It was still delicious but didn’t look as Appetizing

    1. Hi Tates,
      Maybe the chips melted because the flour was still hot when you made it? The original recipe did not toast the flour, so no my chips stayed intact. In the last year or so the whole dangerous raw flour thing came about so I added a stipulation to be safe. So next time you make it cool the flour before you mix the chocolate chips in. I’ll add it to the recipe so no one does this again. It really is good! Thanks for reading.

  12. Jennifer Corado says:

    If you don’t have real butter on hand can you use stick margarine instead?

    1. I am pretty sure it would be fine to use. Enjoy the recipe.
      Kim

  13. Tara Phelps says:

    Were you aware that part of the danger of raw cookie dough is actually the flour? The restaurants and stores that sell raw cookie dough use heat-treated flour to eliminate the presence of E. coli bacteria.

    1. Thanks for the heads up Tara, I have edited my recipe to make it safe to eat.
      Kim
