It was inevitable. After stuffing ourselves full of my ever-so-popular edible gluten free cookie dough over the past few months, we needed a change. I almost feel like a rebel when I say that.

Our obsession began when my daughter created this simple, edible cookie dough recipe. Then it grew into a version that could double as an edible cookie dough frosting!

Finally, we settled on this new gluten free chocolate cookie dough. We loaded it with chocolate chips to make it extra chocolaty!

Why this recipe is great:

  1. You no longer have to warn your family not to eat the cookie dough because of raw eggs in the batter!
  2. You won’t have to chase your husband out of the kitchen when you are trying to make cookies.
  3. You can use it for many other purposes, like a crust for an ice cream pie recipe.
  4. This gluten free cookie dough recipe freezes really well, so make a double batch! There is no need to buy cookie dough when you can make your own!

Expert Tips and Recipe FAQ:

What cocoa is best in this recipe?

I used Anthony’s Organic Cocoa Powder for this recipe. This is an unsolicited plug for a product (and company) that I really love. Their cocoa has a deep, rich, chocolaty flavor that really works well. You also can’t beat the price!

Can you make this recipe dairy-free?

You can easily make this cookie dough dairy-free by using vegan butter.

Why must you bake your flour before using it in this recipe?

Flour can harbor bacteria. This typically bakes off when you bake your dessert, but when you are eating the flour raw, you need to make sure to bake or microwave the flour to kill the bacteria.

How long will this keep fresh?

This cookie dough will keep fresh for up to 4 days in an airtight container or up to 4 months in the freezer.

  1. Hi there! New to this site. Would you be able to make this recipe with vegan butter? I am dairy free as well so I have dairy free chocolate chips. This looks so good! I am a huge fan of anything chocolate. 🙂

    1. Hi Karin, I would think it would work, but I haven’t tested it to know what the flavor profile would be. If you do try it, please come back and let us know so other readers will know too. Thank you!

    2. 5 stars
      This recipe is amazing I made it for my mom who is gluten free dairy free and soy free and we used enjoy chocolate chips and it’s amazing.

  2. I like the ice cream pie idea, but do not like raw cookie dough (I know. I know. I know!!) 🙂 Is there a recipe you would recommend for a gluten free baked chocolate cookie crust?TA
