Why you’ll love it

My thoughts on homemade chocolate chip cookies have always been this: the raw batter is the best part! So I set out to create the best edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. This version is very sweet with a smooth, creamy texture, and it’s portion controlled for no guilt.

This recipe has been a hot topic over the years as evidenced by some of the comments below. People get very excited, annoyed, and passionate over edible cookie dough. 😀 I recommend reading through the entire post and comments to make yours perfect.

What you’ll need

  • Butter – soften it up so it’s easier to work with
  • Sugar – we’re using both granulated sugar and brown sugar
  • Flour – to thicken it up and add texture
  • Milk – I use whole milk
  • Vanilla extract – it’s a classic flavor enhancer
  • Chocolate chips – I like semisweet for that traditional chocolate chip cookie taste

Recipe note

I grew up eating raw cookie dough with eggs and flour, and I never got sick. There aren’t any eggs in this recipe, but there is flour. You’ll sometimes hear that uncooked flour is something to watch out for potential bacteria as well. This is an old recipe (from 2017!) and advice has changed and evolved over the years. It’s entirely up to you what you feel comfortable with and if you make this recipe or not, so consider this my disclaimer.

What makes it guilt free?

  • Two comments I sometimes get are “Why is the portion so small?” and “There’s nothing guilt free about 400 calories”, which are totally contradictory!
  • This is a small portion to be calorie-friendly, but it easy doubles if you want more.
  • As for 400 calories potentially being a lot to some people, that’s much less than your average dessert, and I usually sneak way more dough when actually baking cookies. Everything in moderation is key.

How to make edible cookie dough

This is an overview, and full ingredients & instructions are in the recipe card below.

  • Mix the butter and sugars together in a medium-sized bowl using a hand mixer.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients (except the chocolate chips), and continue to mix until combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips. Give it a taste, and adjust as needed. Refrigerate or freeze to firm up the texture if desired.

Substitutions and variations

  • If you prefer a more “doughy” texture, you could try adding more flour or reducing the amount of milk. I also suggest freezing it for 15 minutes to chill it/firm it up a little!
  • Depending on your preferences, you can add a bit of salt or decrease the sugar if you want it to be less sweet.
  • Some fun add-ins would be M&Ms, sprinkles, peanut butter, cocoa powder, etc.
  • Yes, this is a small portion to be easier on the calories, but it easy doubles. Just straight double all the ingredients!

Can I bake it?

No, it wouldn’t work to bake this edible cookie dough. There’s no eggs or leavening (baking soda or baking powder) to bind them or help them rise, so it wouldn’t work to turn it into actual cookies.

    Really good! Definitely would agree that with the author that this is a sweet and creamy recipe, and to note that ahead of time! I think next time I might add less sugar, more flour and a touch of salt, but that’s just my preference :). Overall really good and I appreciated the portion size, which I think was just enough (but could also be share-able depending on how you’re feeling 🙂 ).

    Because I like a slightly stiffer dough, I added a half teaspoon of cocoa powder—the just plain stuff, not cocoa mix—and that amped up the chocolate, plus gave me the consistency I like. MMM–MMM–MMM–MMM!!!!!!

    1. Hi! I’d probably just leave it out, Shailey. I don’t really think anything is a good substitute.

    2. Ummmm I always substitute it with Vanillin sugar. Juts because it isn’t liquid you’ll still get that vanilla favor

    If you don’t want the calories DON’T MAKE COOKIE DOUGH! My son always steals my cookie dough when I’m making cookies so I’m happy to have found this eggless recipe. Now I don’t have to slap his hand and yell at him cause it’s not safe to eat. He’s going to love this treat. Thanks for sharing

    I think I might have messed up a little bit by using soy flour instead of flour… but the recipe still tasted wonderful! Perfect for a midnight snack

    Oh my goodness! This was sooo yummy!! I’m pregnant & have been craving cookie dough!!! I doubled the recipe & saved the rest in the fridge. I didn’t know it could get any better but i loved it even more cold!! I’m sure this will be made again over the next couple of months. Thanks so much!

  6. Good day! I was out of eggs and wanted something sweet this afternoon and I found your recipe on Pinterest. I was really craving a warm cookie instead of just the dough (which is always yummy!) I added 1 extra tablespoon of flour and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. Chilled for 10 minutes to firm up and baked in the oven at 350 degrees for 13 minutes. I have pictures of my finished product if you would like me to email these to you because I am unfamiliar with how to do that through this comment if it is possible. Thank you so much for your yummy recipe, will be making this more often!

    1. So glad you liked it! My blog doesn’t have a way to display reader photos, but you could actually add them to Pinterest if you wanted to (just go to the pin and then there should be directions under the “tried it” section of the pin). 🙂

    delicious!
    i had to substitute the brown sugar for coconut sugar
    and added a tbsp of cocao powder instead of choc chips
    it was more like a mouse when i first finished mixing and hardened as i had nearly finished the bowl 😂
    will definitely be making more ! with gluten feee powder and cocao nibs 😋

  8. Omg. Was looking for something like this. *angels are real* Who cares about calories for just one portion of one thing? No need to be uptight! You should totally add sprinkles to make it like ‘funfetti chip’ thought that was a cool name 😀 gees I just made a rly long message… my apologies. Oh btw #SiblingGoals
