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.

Made this recipe twice, both times very happy with the results!!
Too rich and sweet still amazing though
Did 1 less tablespoon of flour and added 2 table spoons of old fashion, oats since I’m breast-feeding to hopefully help with milk production. Didn’t even need the chocolate chips and was that incredible! Great recipe! thank you!
That’s such a great idea! So glad you loved it
Cookie lover says
Loved the taste and texture of the cookie dough definitely make it again but probably won’t use the chocolate chips as I prefer it without. Amazing recipe would recommend
Great idea! I love less chocolate chips too, actually
Cake Moonstier says
Hi I really liked this recipe and I’m going to make it again today! But just for me, I would make this with out the chocolate chips just because I dont really like chocolate. But if I would rate this out of 100 it would be 100.
Of course you can leave out the chocolate chips. Sometimes I prefer that as well 🙂
Cookie monster says

Kaylee Powell says

Jane Doe says
Delicious. I am the type of person to eat cookie dough for hours without getting sick. I would recomend chilling it for 5 minutes for better results though. Love this and thank you for making the recipe!!
Yay! I’m so glad you love it. I like it chilled too.
Dawn Mansour says
The absolute best cookie dough we’ve ever had – homemade or store bought. Thank you so much for this recipe!

This is an excellent idea, and I’m not discrediting the author of this recipe, because clearly a lot of people like this recipe, but I did have a few complaints. I won’t be making this again. I’ve always been really good at following recipes for new ideas, and I followed this one to the point, but the cookie dough came out tasting like flour and milk. I absolutely hate cows milk, but I thought that it would be okay because I mean, come on, it’s cookie dough, but I was really disappointed. The cookie dough itself made me feel silk. One of the best things about cookie dough is the salty-sweet flavor you get, and I didn’t get that from this (which was no big deal because why not just add salt??) and I ended up adding a lot of pink salt and still not getting a good flavor. As for the flour, I saw in the reviews that a few people had the problem that it tasted like flour or that there was too much flour, and I’m one of those people. Like I said, it tasted like flour and milk with chocolate. Again, I’m not discrediting the author, I just wouldn’t recommend this recipe to anyone, and I won’t be making it again. It was an amazing idea though! I’m glad I at least tried it so I could know.
Gina Herak says
Would I be able to put this cookie dough into a pop tart and bake it?
I haven’t tried it, but I think it should work. Let me know if you try it!
Lilly carnel says
Wow i trued it and it tasted amazing
Kristen T says
This was just what I needed! I was craving cookie dough before bed after a light dinner :). I subbed almond milk because that is all we have. It was delicious but stopped half way through because of the sweetness. Very rich but amazing, thank you!
Lauren M says
This is sooooo yummy. Thank you!!
I made it a tad healthier by using monkfruit instead of white sugar and only half the amount of chocolate chips – which was plenty. Next time, I’ll attempt to make it even healthier – full monkfruit rather than any sugars, and almond milk or low fat milk.
Suki Mirza says
This tasted like heaven, I didn’t have that many chocolate chips so I halved the recipe and it still came out tasting absolutely amazing. It’s perfect, and is the perfect amount of sweetness, dryness, and just everything.
