This healthy cookie dough is an edible paleo cookie dough recipe that you’ll want to make multiple times a week! Rich, sweet, and just like mom’s chocolate chip cookie dough, this vegan cookie dough is totally safe to eat and guilt-free, too.
If there’s one universally accepted truth in this world, I’m pretty sure it’s everybody loves cookie dough. Honestly, I’m not even a major chocolate chip cookie person myself! They’re alright, and I’ll definitely eat them if they’re around. I crave them, sure! But you know what I’d rather have?
The chocolate chip cookie dough. Oh mama.
And if there’s one universally accepted truth in my household, it’s that my husband will request my paleo healthy cookie dough recipe at least twice a week. I don’t blame him: it’s rich and sweet and the texture is perfect and the vanilla is heady and there are plenty of chocolate chips and you (Read: I) can make it in just a couple minutes.
No, I don’t blame him at all.
This healthy cookie dough recipe is paleo and vegan, as well as, of course, edible and totally safe to eat raw! There are no eggs, so no worries about salmonella. Even if that worry is a bit outdated, you can gorge your prego self (I’m looking at you… wait, I’m talking about myself) on a bowl without feeling one bit guilty.
To make this healthy cookie dough recipe, you just stir a few ingredients together and voilà – dessert is served, my friends! My kid loves it, my husband loves it, I love it… you just cannot make someone mad with this paleo cookie dough recipe. Impossible. In fact, it might make your family love you even more. Slash build you up some brownie points because your friends made reservations for another brunch this weekend and you bought a new outfit and you really, really needed it and it was on sale so basically you were making money by buying it and…
Not a true story or anything.
Let’s talk about this healthy cookie dough!
Can I substitute the almond flour?
You can, but you’ll have to play around with the flours you use as a substitute. If you’re not paleo, oat flour could work well in place of the almond flour. If you are paleo, you’ll have to work a little harder. Try some cassava flour, perhaps, and a bit more coconut flour! Perhaps 1/2 cup cassava flour, 1/4 cup arrowroot, and 1/2 cup coconut flour would work well!
Can I bake this healthy cookie dough?
Eh, I mean, you can, but it’s not going to probably work very well for you. Stick to spoonfuls, my friend!
Is this vegan cookie dough grain free and gluten free?
How long does this paleo cookie dough keep in the fridge?
It will last for a few days, but I’m not sure how you’re going to keep from eating it that long…
Variations on this healthy cookie dough recipe:
- Stir in some chopped walnuts for a nice extra crunch.
- Replace the chocolate chips with white chocolate chips and add in some macadamia nuts for a cookie dough version of my favorite cookie!
- Stir in 1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder to make a double chocolate chip cookie dough.
- Add in a couple tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut for some nice extra flair.
