INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTIONS
- Flour - This edible cookie dough can be made with either all-purpose flour or a gluten-free flour blend such as Bob's Red Mill 1-1 gluten free flour blend. I have not tested any other flour type.
- Chocolate chips - I like to make these with dairy free dark chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. You can also use mini chips if you want them more disbursed. The brand Enjoy Life makes allergen friendly, vegan chocolate chips that you should be able to find at your local grocery store.
- Coconut oil - This vegan edible cookie dough does not use butter, and uses coconut oil instead. The coconut oil allows the cookie dough to take shape. Use a liquid coconut oil or a hard coconut oil that is melted in the microwave is perfect.
- Maple Syrup- A natural sweetener that perfectly sweetens this cookie dough. Use real maple syrup for the best flavor.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: Add ingredients to a bowl. Add the flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, salt, vanilla, and drippy nut butter to a bowl to a medium sized mixing bowl and mix well until a dough forms. It may take up to 1 minute of mixing for the dough to come together.
Step 2. Add in the chocolate chips. Using a spatula, fold the chocolate chips into the batter until they are equally distributed.
This vegan edible cookie dough will stay fresh in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Because there is coconut oil in the dough, it may harden when chilled. If this happens, let it sit on a counter top for up to 5 minutes to soften before consuming.
While traditional edible cookie dough does have dairy in it, this version does not. It used coconut oil, nut butter as the binder for the recipe.
Most traditional cookie dough contains dairy butter and dairy chocolate chips. This version, however, does not contain any dairy and animal byproduct and is vegan.
Because there is coconut oil in the dough, it may harden when chilled. If this happens, let it sit on a counter top for up to 5 minutes to soften before consuming.
- Allow chilled cookie dough to warm up. If you store this cookie dough in the refrigerator, allow it to "warm up" on the counter top for 5 minutes before consuming it. This will allow for the best, smooth texture.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. Fold in the chocolate chips will enable them to be evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough, allowing for each bite to have a chip!
