This eggless cookie dough is SO EASY to throw together. It only takes like 2 minutes to gather the ingredients and mix them up and then you’re ready to eat delicious, irresistible cookie dough (that is totally egg free and edible!)
I’ll be honest I always eat a spoonful or two of cookie dough when I’m making a batch of cookies, and I lick the batter clean when I’m making brownies or cakes. I mean, who doesn’t love licking the bowl clean after making a batch of cookies, or eating a small grab of it along the way.
When I was pregnant I was always extra careful about what I ate, so I didn’t want to eat any raw eggs, just in case, and this cookie dough came to the rescue.
But even when I’m not pregnant I still crave cookie dough, and its always better to be safe. And honestly sometimes I want cookie dough even when I’m not making a big batch of cookies, so this is the solution.
I’ve made cookie dough truffles and about a half dozen cookies for two, so why hadn’t I thought of combining the two ideas and making some edible cookie dough that I could just eat by the spoonful.
(Now let me warn you, there are some things saying that raw flour is also bad for you – I haven’t had any problems with it, but be warned). You can heat the flour hot enough to remove any risk of bacteria by baking it in the oven at 350 for 5 minutes, or microwaving it for about 30 seconds. Or you can try using Heat Treated Flour, I talk about that in my Halloween Cookie Dough Pops post.
Making up a a bowlful of this edible cookie dough for two (or lets be honest, edible cookie dough for one) is the perfect late night treat after a long day of work, or a long day with kids, or just because you’re craving it.
This recipe makes the perfect small bowlful, so its just right for you – or you and a friend if you’re being generous. Just like my chocolate chip cookies for two, but in dough (eggless dough) form.
How to make edible cookie dough for one?
Add your butter, brown sugar, and sugar to a small bowl and cream them together for a couple minutes. Then add in the vanilla extract and milk and stir until combined.
Add in the salt, and flour, and mix until you have a nice soft cookie dough. Add more flour, if the cookie dough is too soft and wet. Fold in the chocolate chips, and enjoy right away.
You can either eat the cookie dough by the spoonful or you can roll it up into little cookie dough balls and eat those! The cookie dough balls are super good immediately, or you can pop the balls in the fridge or freezer for whenever you need a little bite of cookie dough! (Which is pretty much always, right?)
How long does eggless cookie dough last?
The cookie dough should stay good in the fridge for about 1 week in an airtight container. Or stored in the freezer for 3 to 6 months.

Comes out good ever time I have made it,I use it in my cakesicles with vanilla cake😛.Also love freezing them into little balls for quick late night snacks.
This was delicious! Thank you! Definitely keeping this recipe saved 🙂
Thank you for this great recipe!
I doubled the recipe so I made 2 servings with these small adjustments/additions:
– I used brown caster sugar instead of granulated sugar
– Added 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
– Added a few drops (abt 1/8 teaspoon) of lemon juice (just taste/try if you want more or less)
– Rolled the dough out to 3/16 inches (5mm) and made my cookies about 3 inches (8cm) in diameter
– Chilled the douch for 30 mins in the fridge before baking @ 350F for 15mins
And they turned out great! Will definitely make these again!
I’m glad you made it work for you
Too sweet. Very very wet.

Looks just as good as pictured, and tastes even better!
Ha, love that it tastes even better. Thanks for the review.
It would’ve been good it’s didn’t have to almost double the flour to make it dough instead of paste. It was fine once I fixed it, it just wasn’t to the recipes specifications.
i’ve made this a couple times the first time i made it, i added almond milk and it was a bit too runny for me. this time i omitted the milk and the texture was to my tastes. it is very sweet, so i’d recommend eating with a glass of your milk of choice.
I just made this and they turned out GREAT I didnt have brown sugar so I subsituted using granulated and they taste DELICIOUS!
That’s wonderful, thanks for letting us know.
I loved this recipe. It’s came out great! The only thing I did different was use oatmilk and add some cinnamon. Perfect for my rando cookie dough cravings.
Love the idea of adding cinnamon! Yum

It’s a pretty great recipe. I find it works best to melt the butter and then refrigerate it……..or just eat it. 🙂
I tried this recipe and I absolutely loved it! I had it as a midnight snack and it was awesome.
Yay! It’s the perfect late night snack!

Amazing cookie dough! It was really fun to make and tasted delicious. I made 3x the recipe since i was serving 3ppl.
What a fun treat for everyone! So glad you liked it!
Perfect and simple. I make a half batch whenever I just want a little bite.
It think I used the wrong flour but it tasted like string beans and made me sick
So sorry yours tasted that way, that definitely shouldn’t happen and my guess is it was something to do with your ingredients!
I tried the recipe and followed all the correct measurements, and the consistency of the cookie dough wasn’t right; it was too runny even after adding plenty of extra flour to make it more to the consistency that cookie dough should be.
Interesting. Sorry you had a challenge with the cookie dough. We love it.
I’d recommend using less milk then. I followed it to a tee (halved) but with oat milk. Agree with the slightly runnier than expected, but still very tasty! Good ratios otherwise! Yumptious.
The best edible cookie dough! Perfect consistency and flavor. Love it for a late snack and super quick to make!
So glad you love it!!
Ves cookie dough

So sorry you didn’t like it! The recipe has 4.8 stars with over 300 reviews so some people must like it 😉
Love it so quick and easy for teens like who want to learn ! Would highly recommend!!
The best cookie-dough recipe I’ve ever found!! This eggless recipe taste just like it’s store bought and taste amazing in homemade ice cream!!
That makes me so happy to hear! So glad you love it!
OMG THIS IS AMAZING !
I added choc chips and sprinkles to mine it was delicious
I also recommend putting in 1/2 a tbsp of milk as I had to add more flour but other than that definitely recommend.
It is really good but the only thing for me is it is to floury but it still is awesome
Glad you liked it! If you make it again, just add a TBS or so less flour 🙂
what do i do if its a little bit too sweet for me?
Honestly I can usually only eat a couple spoonfuls at a time, hence why it used to be called cookie dough for two. But you could try adding more milk, butter and flour to tone down the sugar.

Yes, yes, and yes. Best egg free cookie dough I have ever made. I’m only 13 years old and getting into the cooking stuff and I have never made something successful so thank you!😁
Anishka Kanjilal says
this was a great recipe! it came pretty close to raw cookie dough. I added an extra tablespoon of flour and a pinch of course sea salt and it was delicious 🙂
