Edible vegan cookie dough is my all-time favorite treat! It’s packed with nourishing ingredients, easy to make, and super versatile so you can always switch up the flavor! If you love oatmeal raisin cookies, you have to try this oatmeal raisin version!
There is just something so nostalgic about the oatmeal raisin combination for me. It’s so cozy and always reminds me of eating way too many growing up at my grandmas house. She would also add raisins and chocolate chips and that was ELITE.
Being as it’s been so warm here, I was not about to turn my oven on so I wanted to create an edible vegan cookie dough version of the classic. This was born and I am obsessed. It’s high protein too, so you’re getting some protein, healthy fats, and fiber!
Does this vegan cooke dough make a good meal prep snack?
Yes! You can use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough into balls. Then add to a mason jar, Tupperware, or baggie and store in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat, you can let them thaw a few minutes or eat them frozen as well!
Can you bake the cookie dough?
I wouldn’t! This recipe was specifically formulated to be no-bake, edible cookie dough! I don’t think they would bake properly! I do have tons of other baked cookie recipes, if that’s more your jam!
What you need to make this vegan cookie dough
Oatmeal: I always opt for organic rolled oats as they are less processed than quick oats!
Protein Powder: Use your favorite flavor here as it’ll add some sweetness and flavor to the recipe! Vanilla, salted caramel, or even peanut butter flavors would all be great! I highly recommend using Macro Mike, as their flavors are AMAZING. Use code amb-dani for a discount!
Raisins: I always try and opt for an unsweetened option that is just raisins, as they’re often full of vegetable oils and added sugars. Always check the label! I love these.
Almond flour: This is my fave (use “danishealthyeats20” at checkout for 20% off!) I haven’t tested any subs for this. I would say you could try using oat flour but you wouldn’t need as much, as it’s more dense than almond flour. You could start with 1/2 cup and add more as needed once everything is mixed together!
Vegan butter or ghee: I found this vegan ghee that works great! You can sub coconut, avocado, or olive oil but the butter really gives it that cookie dough feel!
Nut or Seed Butter: I like using almond or cashew butter as they have a more subtle taste and really give it that cookie dough flavor. However, you could use peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or even tahini! Ground Up makes my favorite butters (Dani15 for a discount)!
Maple Syrup: You can sub any sticky sweetener but I love the flavor the maple gives this recipe! Honey would be a great option for my non-vegan friends! (danishealthyeats20 to save 20% on my fave)
Vanilla, cinnamon, & sea salt: These all give the best flavor to the recipe!
