Dive into a bowl of this creamy, dreamy edible vegan cookie dough! Made with dairy-free plant-based ingredients, it’s packed with rich chocolate chips and ready to satisfy your cravings in the tastiest way possible.


  • 1 cup white all-purpose flour (for gluten-free, use almond flour)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (do not substitute granulated)
  • 1/2 cup softened vegan butter, or melted refined coconut oil*
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup dairy free dark chocolate chips (we like Guittard 63%)


  1. Heat treat the all-purpose flour to prevent bacteria growth (optional): Preheat the oven to 300°F. Place the flour on a baking sheet and bake for 4 to 6 minutes until the temperature reaches 165°F, checking every few minutes with a food thermometer. Cool completely before using (be patient: if the flour is warm the texture of the cookie dough will suffer).
  2. Mix the butter and sugar: Soften the butter in the microwave for about 10 seconds until just soft. Mash it with a fork with the brown sugar until fully incorporated. 
  3. Make the cookie dough: Mix in all the other ingredients, using as much water as you’d like to bring it together into a thick or smoother texture. Eat immediately, or store refrigerated for 1 week or roll into balls and store frozen for 3 months. Don’t bake this cookie dough: for bake-able dough, go to our Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. 


*If using coconut oil, add another pinch of salt.
