Edible Cookie Dough

We love making cookies in our house. In fact, I’d say that aside from chocolate, cookies are the dessert we typically always have in our house because my kids love them.

The thing is, my husband and I always find ourselves craving cookie dough but we want to avoid getting sick so, we decided to make our own homemade (and safe to consume raw) version of Cookie Dough.

If you can mix a few ingredients into a large bowl, you can make this Homemade Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Recipe!

Is All-Purpose Flour Safe To Consume Raw?

This recipe does require all-purpose flour which you shouldn’t eat raw because it can contain harmful bacteria and other contaminants.

The safest way to consume the flour is to heat-treat the flour before consumption.

How Do You Heat-Treat Flour?

Heat-treating the flour is important step to consuming raw flour. Heat-treating the flour ensures that the bad bacteria are killed, so that the flour can be used in no-bake desserts like this one. There are two methods to heat-treating flour.

First, the simplest way to do heat-treat flour is by putting flour into a bowl and microwaving it on high until it’s 165 degrees.

The second method requires using the oven. Simply lay out the flour on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper and bake it for 10 minutes at 350°F.

Once the flour is cooked, you can resume using it in any no-bake recipe such as this edible cookie dough recipe.

I'm on a Keto diet...this could easily be converted by substituting Stevia for the sugar and almond flour for the all-purpose flour. But I don't know if you have to heat-treat almond flour. I will definitely be checking that out!

Let me know how that goes. Unfortunately, I am deathly allergic to almonds so I wouldn't be able to try that but I'd love to hear if you do give it a try!

If I dont have a thermometer to use, do you know how long to microwave the flour to reach the correct temp for heat treating it?

If you don't have a thermometer, a good rule of thumb is to microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds on high, stirring after 15 second intervals. :)
