This edible vegan cookie dough contains only 8 ingredients and one of the ingredients will probably surprise you! The recipe is much healthier than most cookie doughs, it’s protein-rich, eggless, and can be made oil-free + refined sugar-free! It’s quick and easy to make in less than 10 minutes.
Healthy Edible Cookie Dough (Vegan)
I am such a big fan of cookie dough! When I was a kid and my mom baked some cookies I always had to try the raw cookie dough. Most of the time that wasn’t a good idea because the cookie dough contained eggs. Whoops! But not this edible vegan cookie dough. It’s 100% safe to eat and tastes very delicious. I love it because it is:
- Healthier than most edible cookie dough recipes.
- Super quick and easy to make in less than 10 minutes.
- Eggless, gluten-free, and can be made refined sugar-free + oil-free.
Only 8 Simple Ingredients
Yes, the recipe is really simple and the 8 ingredients are:
- Chickpeas (not kidding)
- Sweetener of choice
- Coconut flour
- Dairy-free chocolate chips
- A pinch of salt
- Baking soda (for the cookie dough taste)
- Vanilla extract
The chickpeas will probably surprise you but don’t worry, this eggless edible cookie dough doesn’t taste like chickpeas at all! At least not to me and my friends. 😀 You can also use cooked white beans instead of cooked chickpeas.
Nut butter: You can use cashew butter, almond butter, coconut butter, sunflower seed butter, and even tahini if you don’t mind the slightly bitter taste! This time I used cashew butter but I also made the recipe with sunflower seed butter once. I haven’t tried peanut butter yet but it might be an interesting experiment!
Sweetener of choice: I used powdered Erythritol which is refined sugar-free. But feel free to use regular powdered sugar or date sugar, coconut sugar, Xylitol, etc.
I love using mini dairy-free chocolate chips because they are so cute. However, regular-sized chocolate chips will work as well.
How To Make Edible Vegan Cookie Dough?
It probably couldn’t be easier because all you need is a food processor which will do the work for you.
- You just have to process the wet ingredients first.
- Then add the dry ingredients and mix again.
- Finally, you can add the dairy-free chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
- You can eat the vegan cookie dough right away or shape it into bliss balls or even donuts.
- Check my step-by-step VIDEO right under the recipe instructions!
How To Store?
You should store the vegan cookie dough in the refrigerator (for up to 5-6 days). It doesn’t last that long anyway, just saying! 😀
I also tried freezing the cookie dough and it worked surprisingly well!

Edible Vegan Cookie Dough
- One 15 oz can (275 g) chickpeas rinsed and drained (*see notes)
- 1/4 cup (60 g) nut butter of choice (*see notes)
- 1/2 cup (60 g) powdered Erythritol or powdered sugar (*see notes)
- A pinch of sea salt
- 1/8 tsp baking soda (for the cookie dough taste)
- 2 1/2 tbsp (20 g) coconut flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup (45 g) dairy-free chocolate chips
- Watch the video (scroll down a bit) for easy visual instructions. I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe.
- Process chickpeas, nut butter and vanilla extract in a food processor. Scrape down the sides of the container and mix again.
- Add all other ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and mix again.
- Finally, add the chocolate chips and stir with a spoon.
- Enjoy immediately! I shaped the cookie dough into donuts but that's totally optional!
- Store leftovers in the fridge.
- Chickpeas: You could also use white beans instead of chickpeas.
- Nut butter: Any nut/seed butter (e.g. almond butter, coconut butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter etc) is fine. To make the edible cookie dough creamier, simply add more nut butter, up to 1/2 cup.
- Sweetener: You can use Xylitol, coconut sugar, or regular sugar instead of Erythritol. To make powdered sugar, simply process it in a blender or in an electric coffee/spice grinder for some seconds.
- Baked cookies: You can also bake the dough. I made cookies and they turned out fine. You can see a photo of them here. I shaped the dough into cookies and baked them for 12 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Recipe makes about 400 grams of cookie dough. Nutrition facts are for 100 g (1/4 of the recipe) calculated with Erythritol.
