The Easiest Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough EVER!

This gluten-free edible chocolate chip cookie dough is delicious by the spoonful! It also makes the perfect frosting for any cake, cupcake, cookie, or even donut!

This dessert recipe was created for my son’s birthday last week. Gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough is one of his favorite things to steal when I am not looking.

Of course, I have lectured him many times about raw eggs and not eating the batter when I am baking. It doesn’t matter. My words seems to fall on deaf “teen” ears. Cookie dough without eggs is so easy to make and enjoy in just minutes!

Thankfully, he hasn’t become sick from the dough, but I think this edible cookie dough is going to help matters. There are no worries about this edible cookie dough recipe because it is egg free! It is so easy to make cookie dough without eggs :-). That is why this gluten-free cookie dough recipe is perfect. He can dig in and safely eat this cookie dough. I may need to make this “as is” and let him just eat it out of the bowl. The brown sugary flavor is just that good.

Even better?

This edible cookie dough is smooth enough to frost a cake with. Will you eat it with a spoon, or use it as a frosting? You get to choose, or make a double batch and do both!

You can slather this frosting on anything…like this Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Black Bean Flour Cake, or this Gluten Free Chocolate Layer Cake…or you can just eat it with a spoon out of the bowl!

What will you spread this cookie dough frosting on?

I am thinking cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies…the possibilities are making me hungry! If you don’t want to spread it onto anything, that is okay too. Just eat it out of the jar!

You can spread this Gluten Free Cookie Dough Frosting on these chocolate donuts.

You will remember this delicious post from last week. The cookie dough frosting was amazing on these gluten free chocolate donuts. These disappeared so quickly. Next time I will make a double batch.

Tools You Need To Make This Recipe:

  1. Mixing bowl. I have said this in a few posts, but I am convinced this bowl with a rubber bottom is the best invention, EVER. No sliding when you mix!
  2. Electric mixer. I love the versatility of this mixer. I used the regular paddles.
  3. Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gluten free flour. This flour is great for this recipe, and the cookie dough is not grainy at all!

  7. How do you store this? I’m considering making some as Xmas gifts! So excited to try it!

    • Hi Kelly, that is a really good question. It doesn’t last that long around here because I have two teens. We kept ours refrigerated. If you want to make a gift out of it, you could layer the dry ingredients in a cute mason jar and put a cute hang tag on that says “Just Add Butter”.

  8. That looks good, seriously, I need the whole jar and I will eat the whole thing! Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. I’m thinking I could spread this between cookies and be perfectly happy. Or scooping straight from the jar. Delicious.

  10. Oh my, bring it on! I love gluten free chocolate chip cookies but honestly the dough is the best part. I would have trouble keeping this around the house!

  11. I know that this is funny, but I don’t like eating raw cookie dough of any type. BUT, my husband does. I will be making this frosting for him! He will adore it slathered on his favorite cupcake! Great recipe!

  12. I would easily eat this straight from the jar! Love that it’s gluten-free!

  13. I made this and froze it in tiny pieces so I could have chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream! It was great – thanks for sharing!

  14. My boyfriend is always telling me he would prefer to just eat to cookie dough instead of the actual cookies. This is a great idea!
