Ingredients

You only need a handful of easy ingredients for this quick recipe. You may already have these ingredients in your pantry or kitchen!

Gluten-free oat and almond flour– You will need gluten-free oat flour and almond flour to keep this cookie dough moist and gluten-free. You can find these two flours in most baking aisles.
Butter– Melted butter gives this edible cookie dough an extra layer of richness. You may use salted or unsalted butter. For a vegan cookie dough, use vegan butter.
Almond milk– Almond milk is a light alternative to dairy milk and is what provides a dough-like consistency. You can use any kind of milk such as dairy, oat, cashew, etc.
Sweetener– We like to use Truvia or any other granulated sweetener for this cookie dough. You can also use maple syrup or monk fruit sweetener – both options work!
Brown sugar– Just a tad bit of brown sugar makes this cookie dough extra sweet and tasty.
Vanilla extract– What is cookie dough without vanilla extract? Make sure you use real vanilla extract and not the imitation type.
Dark chocolate chips– Rich, dark chocolate chips provide a crunchy textural layer within the cookie dough. Each chocolate chip is full of sweetness and brings this recipe to a new level.

First, measure all of your ingredients and prepare your workstation. This will allow you to jump straight to the fun part!

Next, in a large mixing bowl with a spoon, stir together the dry ingredients minus the chocolate chips.

Add the melted butter to the dry mixture and stir until combined. Next, add the milk starting at ¼ cup, and stir until a dough forms.

If you want your dough to be creamier, then add one to two extra tablespoons of milk.

Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough in the refrigerator and serve.

Enjoy with a glass of milk or all on its own!
