Halloween is next week and it is an unofficial beginning of holiday season. We kick start the season with an edible cookie dough made with almond flour, since we could all use easy treats for the holidays. What is more classic than a chocolate chip cookie? Some of our favorites are Air Fryer cookies, Chocolate chip cookie mug cake or Cheesecake stuffed skillet cookie.

What is edible cookie dough?

It is like eating the real cookie dough but made safe without eggs and regular flour. It has all the rich, chocolatey goodness of a regular cookie, but you don’t have to turn on the oven to make it. So you can eat it by the spoon full or use as a dip.

Why this recipe works?

This recipe uses almond flour instead of regular flour so there is no risk of food born illness here. Since raw cookie dough always has the risk of salmonella from raw eggs, this recipe uses no eggs making it a great vegetarian option as well. Butter and milk adds creaminess and gives an authentic cookie taste.

Chill for some time in the refrigerator before serving. This helps to firm up and most importantly enhances the flavor. The dough is creamy enough to eat with a spoon, yet firm enough to roll into balls.

Expert tips

Use super fine almond flour – It is available in all major US grocery stores and amazon.

Cream until sugar has dissolved – It is important to beat butter and sugar for 1 to 2 minutes, to make sure that the sugars has completely dissolved. This guarantees a creamy mouth feel.

Use dark brown sugar – Dark brown sugar really enhances the molasses taste of a classic cookie.

Use mini semi sweet chocolate chips – It is the perfect size for this bite size treat.

To use regular size chocolate chips – Place regular chocolate chips on a cutting board. Chop into finer pieces (don’t make them into powder) and then mix into the almond flour dough.

Chill – The gluten free chocolate chip cookie dough is best after letting it sit in the fridge for a few hours. It thickens, flavors deepen and gets enhanced in this process. I like to store mine in a sealed glass mason jar in the fridge for a quick treat anytime.

Can I use regular flour instead of almond flour?

Absolutely! However, you need to make sure that the flour is heat treated to make it safe to eat. To heat treat flour – Sprinkle flour in a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Cool completely before using. Also about 3/4 cup of all purpose flour is perfect for this recipe.

Does this dough taste like almonds?

No! If you are concerned that this cookie dough will taste like almonds since we are using almond flour, it does not. The almond flour makes it safe to eat, but also is nutritious.
