Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough 01

I have a confession. When I make cookies, I really don’t want the cookies…I want the dough. I’m not even really a cookie fan (unless there’s serious chocolate involved)…ah, but the dough…It’s. Just. So. Addicting.

So yesterday I invented cookie dough that is, politically speaking, “safe” to eat. A vegan version. Frankly, whether or not there are raw eggs in the dough I’ll still pick away at it…but this is definitely a friendlier version. At first I wasn’t sure what I was doing. I was playing around with making a cookie dough party dip (I’ve been seeing these go around and they look amazing!), but I didn’t have anything to dunk in it. Then I thought I’ll make cookie dough bars that you freeze…which I did make (picture below), but then I thought people might not be as odd as me to eat cookie dough straight from the freezer.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough 03

My last idea was the best…cookie dough ice-cream. Yes.

I have to admit, that if I were to go to Dairy Queen, (proverbially speaking, of course) that the Cookie Dough Blizzard is what I would go for. Okay…once in a very, very blue moon I do go and get a small blizzard. I know, they are complete junk…but I figure once a year… (wow, there is a lot confessing going on in this post!) Anywhoo…obviously, the idea sounded very inviting. One serving would be about 1 tablespoon.

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

  1. ¾ cup organic wheat flour
  2. ½ cup organic cane sugar
  3. ½ cup Earth Balance
  4. ½ cup chocolate chips (vegan)
  5. 1 tsp. vanilla essence

Cream the margarine and the sugar really well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly. This makes enough for 13 servings of ice-cream (for about a half a cup of ice-cream) so I just keep a bowl in the freezer for when the occasion arises.

You can use this as a topping on my vegan “Blizzard” recipe…simply substitute the “oreos” for the cookie dough. Or use it on my vegan vanilla milkshake!  Or maybe you prefer “Oreo Ice-Cream” over cookie dough…so then, eat this!

    Wow, this looks awesome! Much, Much better than a small blizzard (although I prefer the Peanut Butter Cup kind :)

  2. Jessica @ Dairy Free Betty

    Looks awesome!

    I dream of a dairy free caramel… *drools*

  3. Chris @ TheKeenanCookBook

    Great recipe. My wife is ALWAYS picking at the dough when I make cookies, and I’m always saying “You’ll get Salmonella!” but she’s been doing it since she was a kid with no ill effects. Next time I make cookies I’ll prepare this first to distract here… And I’ll have some too :)

  5. The Kitchen Noob

    I’m horribly guilty of eating cookie dough, but I find I like the baked version better.

    Those frozen bars look awesome!

    Um, holy cow, this looks amazing!!! So glad I found your blog :)

    Kelly~ Oh, that one is sinfully good too…I may have to make a healthy version of that one now!
    Jessica~ Dairy free caramel…I actually a recipe similar to it if you search for caramel apple dip on my site.
    Chris~ Love it!
    Dianne~ Earth balance is a vegan margarine.
    Jessica~ Aw, thanks! You’re welcome back anytime!

    I used to eat cookie dough religiously in college… and then learned about salmonella. Yikes. Wonder if I’ll feel young again if I start eating your cookie dough on a regular basis??? ;-)

    You are so kind to post the nutritional info, even though I kinda don’t want to know how much damage vegan cookie dough does to my waistline! Your vegan cookie dough recipe is much simpler than mine.

    I’ve got to try this out – especially as a blizzard!

  14. Maddelyn

    Is vegan healther? And im trying to lose weight. Will this vegan stuff help? And SO happy u made this cookie dough!!!!!!

  15. Charissa

    Maddelyn~ Vegan isn’t necessarily healthier. Make your life simple by amping up the fruits, veggies, proteins, and reduce carbs. Reduce sugar and processed foods and you should notice a difference in weight…especially if you amp up your workouts. It’s all calories in and calories out, so listen to your body and watch portion sizes. :) Hope that helps!

  16. Krys

    How many servings does the cookie dough make? It says calories per serving but not the number of servings…

  17. Krys

    … and I mean just the cookie dough. Not mixed with the ice cream.

  18. Charissa

    Krys~ Sorry I didn’t put it there…I believe it’s for one tablespoon per serving!

    Is there a recipe for the cookie dough bars??? I love cookie dough straight from the freezer! Guilty as charged! :)

  21. Charissa

    Emma – I’ve made this one into bars, but you’d probably freeze it…as for an official recipe, that might have to come! :)
