A delicious egg-free, dairy free Vegan Cookie Dough recipe just for you! Made in one bowl and with just 6 ingredients, this will be your new go-to recipe when a sugar craving strikes.
Vegan cookie dough is becoming a staple in my diet, so I thought I’d share the recipe so you can enjoy it too! It’s the perfect texture and ideal for those nights when you’re craving cookies, but aren’t feeling up for the task. Or, when all you really want is cookie dough. After dinner treat? Cookie dough. Late night snack? Cookie dough. Heck, afternoon snack? Yup, that too.
Growing up, my mom always had cookies in the house. It didn’t matter the time of day or the day of the week, rest assured my brother and I always had cookies in our bellies. Anything from snickerdoodles to sugar cookies to the infamous chocolate cookies–she made them all. As much as I loved the cookies, one of my favorite things to do was to eat the raw cookie dough.
I know some people say eating raw cookie dough is “bad”, but those people have clearly never tried vegan cookie dough. Personally, I don’t think eating a bite or two of regular cookie dough will harm you, but you can rest assured knowing that this egg-free version will not only not get you sick, but it’ll leave you feeling completely satisfied.
VEGAN COOKIE DOUGH INGREDIENTS
- Baking soda
- Butter (dairy free)
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips (dairy free)
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN COOKIE DOUGH
Did I mention this recipe is made in one bowl? Because it is!
Mix dry ingredients: In a small/medium bowl, stir the flour, sugar and baking soda together.
Add wet ingredients: Add the butter and vanilla into the same bowl with the dry ingredients.
Microwave, and then stir: Microwave the bowl for 10-15 minutes, which will allow the butter to soften. Then, stir everything together until cookie dough forms (if the mixture seems too dry, add one tablespoon of milk). Last, stir in the chocolate chips.
*If you don’t own a microwave or don’t want to use want, melt the butter over the stovetop, then pour it into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Don’t melt it ALL the way; you just want it to be softened.
FLOUR: I used all purpose flour, but you could also just gluten free all purpose flour or whole wheat flour, which will help to maintain the flavor. Yes, you can use almond or coconut flour, but they will give the cookie dough a different flavor.
SUGAR: I used granulated sugar, but coconut sugar will also work. I don’t recommend maple syrup or honey because they are liquid sugars, and therefore will completely change the texture.
I hope you make this, eat it, love it, and then become addicted. I’m sorry I’m not sorry!
