Eggless Peanut Butter Cookie Dough is the perfect treat for those cookie dough cravings. The perfect taste of peanut butter in every bite!
I’ll be the first to admit, that I love cookie dough. Half the joy of making a batch of cookies is eating a couple spoonfuls (or handfuls 😉 of cookie dough) before baking up the cookies. In fact, I love it so much that sometimes I’m just craving the dough without the cookies. For that situation, this recipe for edible peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough is perfect.
This peanut butter cookie dough recipe makes just a small batch, so it’s the perfect small bowlful. Just right to satisfy your craving, but not end up with a stomachache after eating it.
This peanut butter cookie dough is eggless, so you don’t have to worry about getting sick from eating the raw eggs. You can also heat treat your flour before hand in case you’re worried about the risk of any salmonella bacteria.
The peanut butter cookie dough is so easy to throw together, it only takes a couple of minutes to grab the ingredients from your pantry, mix them all together and then you’re ready to gobble up your delicious safe to eat peanut butter cookie dough for one.
You can eat the cookie dough right away warm by the spoonful, or roll it up and eat it by the cookie ball.
If you somehow don’t eat this all up in one sitting, you can roll the dough up into little balls and stick them in the fridge or freezer to enjoy for later. The cookie dough should stay good in the fridge for about 1 week, and in the freezer for 3 to 4 months.
Are you ready to whip up a bowlful yet?
I’m about ready to make another “batch” of this stuff today! Who’s with me? You can stuff it full of just chocolate chips, or chocolate chips and reeses pieces like I did. Or even chopped up reeses cups. Yum!
How to make Peanut Butter Cookie Dough?
You’ll make this peanut butter cookie dough the same way you’d make peanut butter cookies, just without the baking part at the end.
First you’ll cream together your butter, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar for a couple minutes until nice and smooth. This keeps the sugar from being too gritty and gets the mixture smooth.
Add in the vanilla extract and milk and stir it in. Add in the salt, and flour and mix until combined. Add in a little more flour if your cookie dough seems to wet.
Eat it as is, or fold in your chocolate chips, reeses pieces, or other mixins.
What can I mix into peanut butter cookie dough?
- Chocolate chips
- Peanut Butter Chips
- Reeses Pieces
- Chopped up Reeses
- Chopped up Oreos
- Chopped up Butterfingers
- Caramel Bits
Tips and Tricks:
- I recommend using a traditional creamy peanut butter for the best peanut butter flavor in this recipe. I don’t know how a natural peanut butter will work, but if you try make sure to stir it together for best results.
- A crunchy peanut butter will also work if you want to add an extra crunchy texture to this homemade cookie dough.
- Try using almond butter instead of peanut butter for a different flavor.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How to heat treat flour?
Spread raw flour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake the flour in an oven preheated to 350 F for about 5 minutes, the flour should heat up to be 160 F.
Because this recipe uses such a small amount of flour I recommend watching it very closely as it bakes to keep the flour from burning. You can also heat treat extra flour and save it in an airtight container for later.
Is it safe to eat peanut butter cookie dough?
This edible cookie dough recipe is made safe with out eggs, and heat treated flour to make the raw cookie dough completely safe to eat.
It literally takes just a couple minutes and then you can just enjoy this scrumptious treat. Or If you want to try my regular cookie dough: eggless chocolate chip cookie dough, that’s delicious too.
How to store edible cookie dough?
If you don’t gobble this cookie dough up all at once, it can be stored in an air-tight container or wrapped tightly with plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 4 days.
You can also freeze the cookie dough. Roll the cookie dough into balls and freeze them to save for later, by storing them in a double layered freezer safe bag. The frozen cookie dough balls are a great treat when you need to satisfy that sweet tooth.
This edible peanut butter cookie dough is the perfect afternoon or late night snack. It satisfies your sweet tooth, and might even leave you craving a little bit more. I recommend doubling the recipe if you’re going to be sharing.

Don’t believe me that its just minutes to whip up? Watch this!
Hey, this looks really nice! may I have the ingredients in grams? thanks
I haven’t measured this one by weight yet, and when I go and do it automatically it seems wrong, as 1 TBS is 1/16 of a cup generally, and the weight it’s estimating is much more than that would be. I’ll try and see if I can get the amounts in soon.
OMG this was amazing! Since my butter was salted, I left out salt and since jiff is so sweet, I did half white sugar. Definitely used m&M’s and it was fantastic!
Yay! That sounds so yummy!
If I could eat the picture I would! I’ve made this recipe 3 times now and I’m never disappointed.
We love hearing that! So glad it is a favorite. Thanks for the kind words.

i think there is too much sugar
Sorry you thought it was too sweet. You can try it with less sugar next time if you try it out again
Can I bake the cookies? I want to try them baked but I’m not sure if it’ll come out right.
Aimee Berrett says
Eggs hold cookies together, and since there is no baking soda or powder or anything, so I think they’d be pretty flat, but I’ve never tried it. Let me know if you do.
Thank you so much for answering so quickly because I seriously can’t wait to try it! Looks great(I LOVE reeses)- thank you for sharing!!
This looks so good I can’t wait to try it! In your instructions it says to add milk but I didn’t see milk on the ingredients list. How much should we add? Or did I just miss it entirely? Lol Thanks!!
Aimee Berrett says
So sorry. I fixed the list, you’ll need 1/2 TBS of milk!
