Edible Cookie Dough

Does Edible Cookie Dough Taste the same as raw?

This recipe comes pretty close to the real thing but I’m not gonna lie to you, it does taste slightly different. I haven’t tried a recipe that tastes exactly like real cookie dough. I’ve come to the conclusion that it is the eggs that make that slight difference in taste. So I still eat raw cookie dough when I make cookies because I like to live life on the edge. Take me now salmonella!

It’s an easy edible cookie dough recipe made using similar ingredients as your favourite soft chocolate chip cookie, without the eggs, raw flour or dairy. 

Is there a difference between edible cookie dough and regular?

Yes, a regular cookie dough contains raw eggs and raw flour. 

While edible cookie dough recipes contain no eggs and use heat treated flour. Heat treating the flour kills the bacteria. They often also contain milk, whereas regular cookie dough usually does not. 

Is edible cookie dough safe to eat?

Of course! It’s made using ingredients that can be eaten raw. Except for the flour which we will heat treat to make it safe for consumption.

How to Heat Treat the Flour

Heat treating the flour kills pathogens, bacteria and germs that may be in the raw flour. There are two ways to accomplish this.

I don’t always heat treat my flour when I make this recipe because, like I said before, I live life on the edge. Since it is important to make sure the flour is actually safe to eat.

Microwave Method:

Place the flour in a glass bowl and microwave in 30 second intervals until it feels hot. Stir the flour in between each interval. It should reach a temp of 160-165F.


Preheat the oven to 325 and spread the flour onto a parchment lined baking tray. Make sure to stir the flour about every 2 minutes. It should take about 10 minutes for it to reach a temperature of 160-165F.

Or preheat your oven to 300F and Spread your flour onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Make sure to stir the flour about every 2-3 minutes to ensure it doesn’t burn. Once the temperature is at 160-65F remove from the oven and allow to fully cool before using in your recipe.

    Cookie dough is so delicious, but the one and only time I ate raw cookie dough, I was so ill. I love the idea of heating the flour to kill bacteria and love that there are no eggs in this cookie dough. Now I can enjoy it without fear of being ill!
