by

If you’ve ever wanted a recipe for gluten free cookie dough you’re going to love this sweet, creamy edible gluten free cookie dough recipe. It uses minimal ingredients and we’ve included an option for making it dairy-free.

This gluten free cookie dough recipe is based of off my Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.

Edible Gluten Free Cookie Dough

I grew up eating cookie dough. Even thought there’s raw egg in it, I’ve never had an issue. It is recommended that you don’t eat cookie dough so we switched to making an edible gluten free cookie dough recipe.

 

This edible gluten free cookie dough is simple to make and you don’t need to chill it before you can start enjoying it.

It uses minimal ingredients and we’ve included an option to make it dairy-free. There aren’t any eggs in this cookie dough recipe, so if you go with the dairy-free option it will also be vegan.

Just look at that spoon full of gluten free cookie dough. Delish!

Ingredients in Gluten Free Cookie Dough

Salted Butter – Room temperature or slightly warmer works best. Don’t use melted butter. If you use unsalted butter make sure to add ½ teaspoon of salt.

Brown Sugar – For a sweet, caramel like flavor.

Granulated Sugar – To add additional sweetness and balance just like a chocolate chip cookie.

Vanilla Extract – A touch of vanilla goes a long way. You can always leave it out but we love adding vanilla.

Gluten Free Flour – For this gluten free cookie dough recipe I kept it simple and used Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 All Purpose Gluten Free Flour.

Chocolate Chips – You can use mini chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below and I will get back to you.

GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Not all chocolate chips are gluten free, but most are. What you really need to pay attention to in addition to the ingredients, is if they were processed in a facility that also processes wheat ingredients.

Here are some of our favorite gluten free chocolate chips:

  • Enjoy Life Foods
  • Nestle
  • Lily’s
  • Trader Joe’s
  • Pasha (for dairy-free and vegan)

If you have a favorite chocolate chip that you use, please let me know which ones you’d use.

Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Cookie Dough

You can use dairy-free butter and dairy-free chocolate chips in this recipe to make this gluten free cookie dough dairy free. Make sure your butter is not melted before you use it. We like Earth Balance Buttery spread.

Gluten Free Flours for Edible Gluten Free Cookie Dough

This recipe works well with my gluten free flour blend and Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten Free Flour. Other flour blends with similar ingredients will work as well, like, cup4Cup, King Arthur, Trader Joes Gluten Free Flour, etc.

Nut flour blends don’t work in this recipe. Also, Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour blend doesn’t taste good in this recipe due to the chickpea flour.

Working with Gluten-Free Flours

When working with or measuring gluten-free flour, spoon the flour into the measuring cup and level. Do not scoop your measuring cup into the gluten-free flour.

The best method really is to weigh the gluten-free flour but I don’t have the ingredient weights for all my recipes yet.

Can you freeze gluten free cookie dough?

Yes, this recipe freezes well. We like to use a cookie scoop and freeze cookie dough balls. We store them in a container in the freezer and grab one when we have a sweet tooth.

Tips for Making Gluten Free Edible Cookie Dough

Start with room temperature ingredients.

Make sure your butter is soft, not melted.

Spoon flour into the measuring cup and level, don’t scoop the flour from the bag.

Don’t change the recipe, follow it as directed.

You can use a dairy-free butter. Shortening does not taste good in this recipe.
