The easiest raw healthy cookie dough you’ll ever make! Completely gluten free, vegan, nut free, and dairy free, it’s the perfect single serving treat!

One of my favorite anytime treats is this healthy cookie dough. It could not be simpler to put together and tastes like you’re eating a batch of raw cookie dough (well, this recipe is also raw, which is cool!).

Except, it’s not the kind of cookie dough that your mom always told you not to eat in case of salmonella!

In fact, it’s egg-less (obvi), gluten free, vegan, raw, low sugar, refined sugar free, and nut free.

YEP! And ready in under 10 minutes 🙂 How’s that for a quick pick-me-up treat?

Gluten free cookie dough? Check. Dairy free cookie dough? Check. Vegan cookie dough? Check. Refined sugar free cookie dough? Check. Nut free cookie dough?

Check, check, check, check!

This edible vegan cookie dough is scratching off all the boxes for being allergy friendly, healthier, and lower in sugar than most other homemade cookie doughs!

Now, how is this different than other healthy and edible cookie doughs on the inter webs? Well, most are made with almond flour and contain almond butter (which I do give you an option for the latter because I know not everyone likes coconut butter or sunflower seed butter, or may not even need a nut free cookie dough!).

That being said, you may be wondering why this cookie dough isn’t Paleo as well. That’s because while I could have really made this a nut free vegan and Paleo cookie dough using cassava flour, you’d have to add in an extra step of toasting the cassava flour.

Why? Because cassava flour, like regular all-purpose flour, shouldn’t really be consumed raw. I’ve noticed some people don’t note that in their posts and I just want to be clear here: do not eat cassava flour raw!

So I opted out of adding in an additional step for you because I want this gluten free vegan cookie dough to be as simple as possible. All while tasting like the classic!

Can I really eat this cookie dough raw?

Yes! So one thing that I wanted to make sure was different about my healthy cookie dough is that it is not only nut free, but it can also be eaten raw.

So with traditional edible cookie dough (that’s not gluten free), you have to toast the flour because it can be a safety hazard.

With popular homemade Paleo cookie doughs, they solve that issue by swapping in almond flour. However, I know some of my Banana readers have nut allergies, and it’s my goal to offer you as many nut free, allergy friendly healthy treats as possible.

So I went to work and created a healthy cookie dough that’s gluten free, dairy free, vegan, nut free, and edible when raw.

What’s the flour then? A combination of coconut flour and oat flour!

How to make Healthy Cookie Dough

Okay so now we get to the good stuff. How to actually make this healthy cookie dough that’s so freaking easy!

First, let’s go over the ingredients. For this dough, you’ll need:

  • Oat flour (either homemade or store bought. Store bought will give you more of a cookie dough texture)
  • Coconut flour
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut oil
  • Coconut butter (or almond butter if not nut free)
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate Chips

Just 7 simple ingredients! And it’s even easier to put together:

  1. First start by whisking together all of the dry ingredients.
  2. Then fold in the wet ingredients and combine until you get a dough texture.
  3. Add in the chocolate chips and serve!

Easy as 1, 2, 3 🙂

Make this cookie dough Keto

Now for my Keto or low sugar folks out there who want a gluten free vegan cookie dough that’s low sugar and low carb, you’ll have to make 2 swaps here.

I mentioned above that I didn’t want to use cassava flour because of the extra step, and you still won’t have to use it because cassava is actually pretty high carb for a Paleo flour.

However, you can simply swap out the oat flour for the coconut flour. It won’t have the exact same texture of course, but that way you’ll have a Paleo cookie dough that’s also low carb.

The second swap you’ll need to do is the sugar. You can omit the sugar all together and swap in an equal ratio of coconut milk plus one extra teaspoon of vanilla. Or you can swap in a Keto friendly sweetener, like stevia.

How do I store this edible cookie dough?

This cookie dough is perfectly good for up to a week in the fridge (I haven’t tested longer than that because you’ll have a hard time staying away from it ha!), and up to a month in the freezer.

I suggest scooping the cookie dough into servings before storing it in an airtight container in the freezer so that it’s easier to unthaw.
