Easy Edible Healthy Cookie Dough (Vegan + Gluten Free!)

Cookie dough is just the ultimate indulgence, but why can’t we also have a protein packed version that doesn’t skimp on the taste?!

But this isn’t just any cookie dough that you might find on the inter webs.

This edible cookie dough is actually packed with protein, low in sugar, naturally gluten free, and nut free! Plus, you get to eat alllllll this cookie dough for yourself. Yes, this is cookie dough for one!

The best part about this gluten free healthy cookie dough? It tastes just like a classic with all the flavor and sweetness of edible cookie dough. You’ll never know this cookie dough is healthier!

So I’m super pumped about this recipe in particular because I teamed up with two of my other food blogger friends, Natalie from Feasting on Fruit and Sonya from Sonya’s Open Cupboard.

We all decided that we were going to stick with the theme of cookie dough and make a vegan cookie dough series of sorts.

So I decided to make a vegan protein cookie dough packed with chocolate chips. It basically tastes like an edible cookie dough, but secretly lower in sugar and packed with plant based protein (I’m serious, 12 grams per serving! That’s pretty decent for cookie dough!).

There’s Natalie’s beautiful creation: Oreo Cookie Dough Sandwiches. And then there’s Sonya’s beautiful creation: a vegan and gluten free cookie dough blizzard!

So if you want to make all of the best healthy cookie dough recipes, then look no further: we’ve got you covered!

Now, my recipe for healthy cookie dough is actually single serve. Yes, you can eat this entire jar! Sometimes, you just want the cookie dough all to yourself (actually, probably all of the time…just me?).

So you really won’t need much in quantity of each ingredient for this protein cookie dough recipe:

  • Oat flour or gluten free 1-to-1 flour: you can also use all purpose, but please make sure to toast the flour before making this recipe!
  • Pea protein powder: I recommend using a vanilla flavored pea protein, such as the one by Nuzest!
  • Vegan butter or coconut oil: I recommend Flora Plant Butter for the best flavor. It’s naturally nut free and soy free.
  • Coconut sugar: you can also used granulated sugar if you don’t have coconut sugar on hand.
  • Vanilla extract or vanilla powder: for a really lovely flavor, use vanilla powder!
  • Dairy free milk
  • Vegan chocolate chips: I recommend Pascha Organics. They have both 100% chocolate, stevia sweetened, and regular vegan chocolate!

That’s it!

If you’re in need of a quick sweet snack or a healthy vegan dessert for after dinner, this is your recipe. All you need is 5 minutes (plus 5 minutes to toast the flour beforehand- please do not skip this step!), and you’re ready to go!

Not even any chilling time- I promise!

  1. Start by whisking together the melted vegan butter, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract.
  2. Then add in the flour and pea protein, and stir to combine. You can add in the dairy free milk here to help mix the dry ingredients into the wet.
  3. Fold in the add ins, such as sprinkles and chocolate chips, and dig in!

Can I omit the protein powder?

Absolutely! If you don’t want to make a protein cookie dough, not a problem. Just add in an additional tablespoon of flour for the pea protein.

Is it okay to eat gluten free flour raw?

Unfortunately, whether it’s gluten free or not, I recommend heat treating the flour. It’s super easy though, and just takes an extra few minutes! With regular cookie dough (although all cookie dough that you’ll find on this blog is vegan), it’s not just the eggs that pose as an issue for consumption raw.

It’s the flour as well. In order to ensure that your healthy cookie dough is safe to eat, please make sure that you don’t skip the step where I walk you through toasting the flour down below in the recipe card.

Of course, you don’t have to be limited to just sprinkles and/or chocolate chips: the cookie dough world is your oyster!

  • Nuts or seeds
  • Chopped up homemade almond butter cups
  • Dried fruit, such as dried strawberries, cherries, bananas, mango
  • Crushed gluten free pretzels
  • Vegan candy coated chocolate gems
  • Vegan marshmallows
  • Lemon, orange, or lime zest
  • Vegan nutella
