Edible Cookie Dough Bites – Best Recipe!

Table of Contents

To start, let’s take a peek at how to make edible chocolate chip cookie dough bites. These yummy little treats are safe for consumption and don’t contain the raw flour and egg that other cookie dough recipes do.

Be sure to note, however, that though this edible cookie dough recipe is safe to eat, the flour in the recipe will still need to be heat treated. This means that you’ll need to take the time to “cook” the flour before stirring it in with the rest of the ingredients.

Don’t worry though. I’ll be here to guide you through it every step of the way! Let’s get started.

  • ¾ cups salted butter at room temperature
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk (can substitute with dairy free)
  • pinch of cinnamon

Directions

  1. Begin by heat treating your flour. To do this, preheat your oven to 350°F, and spread the flour evenly over a lined baking sheet. Heat the flour for about 5-10 minutes, being careful not to burn it. Remove the flour from the oven and allow it to cool completely before moving on to the next step.
  2. In a bowl, whisk your butter, sugar, and vanilla. Continuing whisking until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Slowly add in your flour, cinnamon, salt, and a couple of tablespoons of your milk. Whisk the mixture until well incorporated.
  4. Be sure not to add too much milk. Doing so will make the batter too wet. Instead, add just a few drops at a time until you reach the desired consistency. The dough shouldn’t be too wet, and should easily roll into balls.
  5. Put in your chocolate chips and fold them into the mixture.
  6. Use a small cookie scoop or mini ice cream scoop to spoon dough into small balls. It should make about 18-20 balls in total. Place these scoops on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for at least 10 minutes in the fridge to allow the dough a chance to get firm.
  7. Enjoy!

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 6 large Medjool dates (be sure to remove the pits and chop them in half)
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter (can also use crunchy)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce (is you use sweetened applesauce, you may reduce the amount of agave you use in the next step)
  • 2 tablespoon agave (use 1 tablespoon if using sweetened applesauce)
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons mini chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Using a blender or food processor, pulse your oats into flour. Alternatively, you can use pre-ground oat flour. Once the oats have been ground into a fine consistency, set the oats aside.
  2. Add your dates to the same blender and blend at a low speed until they turn into a paste.
  3. To the blender, add your peanut butter, applesauce, and agave (along with the pre-blended dates). Blend until fully incorporated.
  4. Add the oat flour to another mixture and continue to blend until the dough becomes stiff.
  5. Once blended, add your rice cereal to the mixture and blend at a low speed to incorporate them. You don’t need to blend too much here, as you’ll only want them loosely mixed in.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the dough out of the blender and into a mixing bowl. Add your chocolate chips and fold them in. Knead the dough using a fork until it becomes even. This can take up to 3 minutes.
  7. If you notice that the dough is too crumbly, you may add an extra teaspoon or so of applesauce. However, if you find the dough to be stiff, know that this is normal.
  8. Scoop the dough using a tablespoon and roll into balls. If the mixture is too sticky, be sure to dampen your hands.
  9. Store the rolled edible cookie dough bites in an airtight container for about a week.

In most cases, snackable cookie dough purchased at the store is fine to bake. In fact, even your homemade versions of edible cookie dough can be baked. Just know that edible cookie dough of any kind usually won’t contain leaveners. Without the baking soda or baking powder typically used in cookie recipes, you shouldn’t expect your cookies to rise or bubble up in the middle. Instead, they’ll turn dense and crisp. And who knows…you just might like it!

In case you’re wondering, Taste of Nature, Inc. is often credited for coming up with the very first cookie dough bites. These bites were established in 1997, and gave people a chance to eat cookie dough balls without feeling fearful of getting sick.

Note: Remember that it is unsafe to eat raw cookie dough bites that aren’t specifically made to be edible. This is because the raw flour and eggs in classic cookie dough contain harmful bacteria such as salmonella or e.coli. To be safe, always buy edible cookie dough from the store to enjoy, or make your own edible bite sized balls at home. Do not try to eat regular cookie dough– you just might find yourself in the hospital if you do!
