Healthy Cookie Dough Recipe Inspiration

Chocolate chip cookies are an all American favorite dessert, but I’m pretty sure that the cookie dough is what people love most. I know when I make a batch of cookie dough, I’d rather eat the batter instead of making the cookies.

My husband and I used to make batches of edible cookie dough, and I would have a bite, and he would eat the rest. But I always felt yucky and guilty for making such sugary and fatty dough.

Of course, we have all heard that we should not eat raw cookie dough because of the raw eggs and flour. Even though most of us don’t listen to that, I still wanted to make healthy cookie dough just in case.

So, if you want to eat cookie dough without guilt or fear of getting sick, this recipe is perfect for you!

Dough Ingredients

The great thing about these cookie dough ingredients is that they are gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan. Although, I bought certain brands for that.

Oat flour should naturally be gluten-free, but to be safe, I buy Bob’s Red Mill brand or one that specifies that it is gluten-free. Or buy gluten-free oats and turn them into oat flour.

I also used Enjoy Life semi-sweet chocolate chips because they are dairy-free, soy-free, and vegan. However, if you don’t have aversions to dairy, you can use a different brand.

Almond milk is my favorite non-dairy milk, but for those with nut allergies, oat milk, coconut milk, or rice milk can be used in its place.

Coconut sugar is my sweetener of choice for this recipe, but if it isn’t available to use, turbinado sugar or brown sugar will work fine as well.

Recipe Equipment

The equipment for this recipe is minimal and doesn’t require turning on the oven. I prefer separating the cookie dough into balls to get equal amounts of servings. So, I like to line my Wilton cookie sheet with parchment paper and roll the dough into balls. I freeze them for 30 minutes to help them set up quickly.

The only other piece of equipment you might need is a blender if you choose to make your own oat flour instead of buying it.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Make your own oat flour by blending gluten-free oats in a ninja blender for 10-15 seconds, or until it reaches flour texture. I use my smoothie attachment because it fits the oats perfectly and cleans easier.
  • Leave this as regular cookie dough, or shape it into balls for single servings.
  • Store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Or freeze them by wrapping them in wax paper before adding them to the container, and freeze them for up to 2 months.

    I just came on here to rate your recipe while I’m also eating it. They are so good. For a moment I was like “please don’t let it be chickpeas” but when I saw it was oats. I was like heck yes let’s get this cookie dough party started.

    These sound delicious! I believe I’ve had more than enough chocolate chip cookies over the previous month, though, even if they are healthier! Lol. I definitely lost that battle over the holidays…
