I posted this picture on Instagram the other night…

Edible Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

…and a less staged version on Snapchat (username –> myinnershakti).

A totally unexpected thing happened after doing so.  I received more than the usual number of messages and emails asking for my recipe.

Honestly, this is a “recipe” because I went into it with no plan in mind.  And because it was way too easy to make (like too easy for my own good!).

Before I share said “recipe,” let me tell you how this edible vegan chocolate chip cookie dough came to be.

Vishnu and I had just finished dinner on Tuesday night.  He was cleaning the counters, and I was getting ready to do the dishes.  Here’s the conversation that followed…

P: Are you craving something sweet?
V: Par, we just ate.
P: What’s your point?  Hunger has nothing to do with dessert.
V: I’m good. (Although, he did eat some dried mango from TJs an hour or so later!)
P: Fine, I’m going to make something sweet for ONE.  And I will not share!

I finished the dishes and immediately started rummaging around our pantry and fridge.  My first instinct was to find a cookie recipe for one, but in all honesty, I didn’t want to turn on the oven.  But of course, now I had cookies on my mind.  I thought about how I could make something that tasted like a cookie but didn’t require baking.

It was in that moment when my edible cookie dough was born!

This little concoction was delicious and satisfying in a way most sweet treats aren’t (re: healthy fats!).  The best part is that it took less than two minutes to whip up a bowl of cookie dough goodness!  I highly recommend you experiment and use this “recipe” as your base.  If you’re feeling adventurous, try different flours, nut butters, and add-ins!  You can’t go wrong!

Edible Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Serves 1

2 tablespoons almond meal/flour
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 tablespoon peanut butter
2 tablespoons almond milk
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon chocolate chips (I love Enjoy Life)

In a small bowl, mix together the almond meal and coconut flour.  Work the peanut butter in with the flours until it resembles a crumbly mixture. Add the wet ingredients (almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract) and mix until combined.  Fold in the chocolate chips.  Enjoy!

How do you satisfy your sweet tooth?

  1. No joke Par, you and V are JUST like me and REB. It’s hilarious! i’m always like, “Hey, I’m craving some kind of chocolate. Are you?”
    “No Aparna, we just ate dinner after working out.” …so?! I need to keep this recipe on hand! I have all these ingredients! Genius! Lately I’ve been satisfying my sweet craving with a low-carb wrap and some peanut butter in it. Or, I’ll have some plain yogurt, fruit and cinnamon!
