No Egg Cookie Dough

Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Hi, it’s me – Lily! Did you guys like the White Chocolate Cookie Dough Fudge we shared two weeks ago?? We did!! We even made Cookies N Cream Fudge this week. It was so good! We love Oreos! As part of the cookie dough fudge, we had to make some Eggless Cookie Dough and that’s the recipe we are sharing today. It was so delicious. I even tried it myself. πŸ™‚

Sometimes when we make cookies we like to eat the cookie dough but my mom says we can just have a taste because it has raw eggs. This Cookie Dough no eggs which means you can eat all you want. That’s why it’s called EGG-LESS cookie dough!!! My dad was so excited because cookie dough is his favorite part. I like it too!

Cookie Dough Without Eggs

How to Make Edible Cookie Dough:

Edible cookie dough uses just about all the same ingredients as normal cookie dough with the exception of eggs (hence why it’s eggless cookie doughΒ – this is what makes it edible),Β and baking powder/soda. You don’t need these last two, because this cookie dough isn’t for baking! Just for eating. πŸ˜‰ Here’s how you make the cookie dough.

  1. Cream butter and brown sugar in a bowl, until smooth.
  2. Add milk and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  3. Add flour and sugar, then fold in the chocolate chips and mix well. ENJOY!

Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers that you don’t immediately eat or use in another recipe! I really think you’ll like this recipe. It’s simple and so good!

*NOTE: This dough is NOT to make cookies – this is to EAT plain or in a milkshake or to put in other desserts that don’t get baked*

    Question: can you bake this and make actual cookies with it?

      Lil' Luna

      I don’t think so… at least, I’ve never tried. Our favorite chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is this one: We definitely make cookies with it ALL the time!! πŸ˜‰


        I don’t see why you couldn’ is almost like the recipe I call snoballs.It has almost the same ingreds in it.

      Sasha M.

      Well, Rachel S., I will laugh so hard if you’re the Rachel S. I know. But anyways,
      This is like the same thing as baking cookie dough, but without eggs. I suspect you can bake them, but they might be more gooey or more firm.


      you should probibly add an egg or two it will come out better!


    Love this recipe! Cookie dough is the best part of making cookies! Thanks and pinning!

    So pinned it! So making this!!

    If I could just inhale all the stuff in these pics/recipes, right now…..I’d be soooo happy! what is the purpose of eggs in our olde recipes?


      Eating raw eggs is dangerous because they may contain E Coli.


        Eggs don’t contain E-coli. The contents of an egg are sterile. E-coli can be in chicken poop that gets on the egg shells. Wash your eggs really well and eating raw eggs isn’t an issue.

        On a side note, just made this and it’s delicious!

          miranda g

          Salmonella is the issue. Raw eggs is a no no. As someone who worked in the egg industry I will tell you, please never eat raw eggs.


          Salmonella can invade the ovaries of poultry and infect the inside of the egg before the chicken has laid it. It is not super common, estimates say one in 10,000 to 20,000 eggs may be infected. But trust me when I say you don’t want to be the unlucky one who eats that egg raw. And it doesn’t matter where the egg comes from, commercial farm or backyard chicken coop. No matter how well the chickens are taken care of, wild birds carry salmonella and can easily pass it to chickens. Please don’t think washing the shell will make your egg 100% safe to eat. Please don’t eat raw eggs unless they’ve been pasteurized. (I majored in microbiology and minored in ag.)


    We have started making all of our own ice cream and a favorite is chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ve been looking for a simple, eggless recipe for the ice cream, could this be used in that? Do you know if the dough would get too hard in the ice cream after going into the deep freeze? Thanks!!

      Lil' Luna

      We used it in our ice cream and it was perfect. πŸ™‚
      Lil’ Luna recently posted..Pizza Night Invites + Papa John’sMy Profile


      I use this cookie dough as well to eat and to use in homemade vanilla ice cream! Everyone is so amazed that it’s dough they can eat, without worrying about getting sick..
      I don’t understand, I’m 61 and all my life I have eaten raw cookie dough, and raw anything with eggs and never once have I, or anyone I know gotten sick from raw eggs!! Just sayin’ πŸ™‚

      Thanks for this recipe, I will use it again!! <3

        Lil' Luna

        You’re right! I’ve never gotten sick either, and my hubby and I (and the kids) have had our fair share of raw cookie dough. I guess it’s better to be safe than sorry. πŸ˜‰


    I just made this and the end product was awful, I don’t know what exactly but I think the milk was separating from the butter or something but it did not mix well at all. Any advice on what could be happening? I’m so disappointed I was really looking forward to having this =(


      I had the same experience! I think it’s just the wrong measurements for the ingredients. I tried adding more sugar but it didn’t help. Also real cookies don’t usually have milk in the recipe so maybe that’s where she went wrong?


        Mine was a little off as well, i added some salt to mine, along with more milk and alot more flour. There was a strong unpleasant taste of vanilla extract.

      Marissa Wallen

      I know! It was really liquidy and the butter just wasn’t stirring up.


        I put in the liquid after mixing in the flour and it worked fine. πŸ™‚
        Charis recently posted..In the StormMy Profile


    Or you could just use Egg Beaters. Tastes the same as regular dough and cooks the same. Plus it is pasteurized so no worries about salmonella…. and its fat free/cholesterol free

    Sophie D.

    I just made this and it was fine. In fact REALLY good πŸ™‚ Tnx for the recipe!


    Just out of curiosity, what happens if you try to make cookies with it?


    this cookies sounds so refreshing
    i love cookie series food very much and i made it for my kid yesterday, it teased good.this is,thank you for your great sharing.
    What lense did you shoot with here?
    why should add vanilla? thanks


    Can i change the brown sugar to a white or normal sugar?




    I just made this with quinoa milk, turbino organic sugar, and coconut flour (the closest I had to the actual ingredients, and I wanted to try this immediately!). I had to add some more butter, but it turned out yummy! Love!


    Just made these and they didn’t work out for me either. I think it’s way too much flour. The end product is much more like a dough than a dip and tastes mostly like raw flour. I think this recipe needs to be retested and reworked.


      Same here! I don’t know if I did something wrong, but they ended up being not sweet at all and I had to add more sugar to be able to stand it. I must’ve done something wrong, as everyone else seemed to like it…


        I tried this recipe the other night & it tasted really good! It was a tad sweet, but if I make it again I’ll try it with a little less sweetener.


      How are you measuring your flour? Flour should be spooned into the measuring cup and leveled, never packed or even scooped directly from the container with the measuring cup. It may be why you ended up with too much flour.


      I just had the same thing happen to me! ☹️ So upsetting! I ended up adding the other half stick of butter, more vanilla, and an equal amount of white sugar as the brown. The end result is okay… still not what I was looking for though. I’ll try again to rework it and not have a raw flour taste.


    I love this recipe I didn’t use exact measurements but I eyeballed it an it turned out delicious my 6 year old sister adored it too! I realized I didn’t need to add milk for some reason. I quartered the recipe for a single serving but obviously I needed to make more!


    Is it ok to eat uncooked flour?


      No. You can get salmonella and e coli from raw flour.

    Jodi Jacobs

    This looks yummy Lily I promise I will try it

    Eliana Bonbrest

    This looks so good I always love cookie dough but it wasn’t safe to eat.But this is great!!!!


    I’m pregnant and craving cookie dough. Thank you for this recipe! I made it and it was great! I’m going to try oatmeal and cinnamon chips next. The milk helped make up for the lost liquid from no egg, and it was perfectly sweet. I might try white sugar instead of brown sugar in the future, but I loved the flavor.

    Marissa Wallen

    I got all the measurments right but it’s liquidy…. πŸ™

      Lil' Luna

      It shouldn’t be liquidy. Was your butter melted or softened?

    Ernestina Mendoza

    Excellent! Yummy! Terrific! Great! ETC.


    Just made this with the girls at the autism school. 10/10 from all of them! Super easy and delicious, we had staff from other dorms coming to steal some!

      Lil' Luna

      I LOVE hearing that!!! I hope you can find even more recipes on the site that you enjoy. πŸ˜‰


    I don’t know if this was mentioned, but since this dough can’t be baked into cookies, wouldn’t it be a scrummy dip? I have a recipe that is similar to this & it was first made as dip, I haven’t tried it yet but think it would be crazy good with all kinds of things like graham crackers or fruit. Or just a spoon! :0)

    Ooh, or stuffed into cupcakes! Yum. I see myself gaining weight in the very near future, better start exercising. Or hey it’s Fall, I have big sweaters LOL :0)

      Lil' Luna

      LOL!! Yes – it’s a great dip. My family likes to eat it with a spoon, but it would be great with any goody dipped into it. ;D

      Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. ;D


    Does vanilla extract really need to be added


    Made it. Found it slightly heavy on the flour taste, but overall pretty good!

    Just remember that if you’re using unsalted butter, you need to add salt on your own. I forgot it at first and had to mix it in by hand. Made it taste a lot better though!

    Lexi Z

    Is it Better to melt the butter or no?


    Am I supposed to refrigerate this. It red making it exactly like told but it came out all liquefied. Is that normal?


    its for how many person ?


    I think maybe for some that didn’t like the end product, you should try adding a bit of salt. Real cookie dough has salt and it’s that salty/sweet combo that makes it taste so good.


    can i use white sugar instead of brown sugar?

      Lil' Luna

      I haven’t tried this without the brown sugar. I’m not sure how it would turn out. White sugar is already in the recipe, so adding more, might be too much.


    Yummy, looks delish! Who doesn’t LOVE cookie dough?!

      Lil' Luna

      It is delish!! I’m not sure who doesn’t, but we do!!! Thanks!


    Hi, I found this recipe on pinterest and wanted to try it out and it turned out slightly disappointing, because honestly there is waaay too much sugar in this recipe. I doubled it, but I took a whole cup of brown sugar out and it is still really overly sweet. It was really soft, which isn’t totally unexpected, but it doesn’t look like the picture. Is the picture of dough that has been refrigerated? Is there a reason why the recipe needs soo much sugar? Also, your star rating thing is messed up. It keeps making my rating go 5 stars and won’t let me do anything else.
    Thanks for the recipe though


      I had the same problem it is way to sweet and due to all the sugar it was really grainy.


        I felt the same


      I Feel the same. Too much sugar, may try again with less


    It was very grainy. The flavor was alright.

    Quinn D

    So delicious! Could not stop eating it! I did not have light brown sugar in the house so I used dark and it was to die for!


    I just made this and it was awful. πŸ™ The measurements are off somewhere, it tasted of pure gritty sugar and too much vanilla. I love the idea of it though!

      Lil' Luna

      I’m sorry you thought that. I have never had that problem. Thanks for trying it out, though!!


    Hi! How is cookie dough supposed to taste/feel like? I’ve never eaten cookie dough before but it sounds fun! I made a little batch on my own (not according to the recipe but same ingredients + walnuts & cocoa powder) and it’s yummy but it feels more like a slime. Is it supposed to be that way?

      Lil' Luna

      It shouldn’t be soggy. It’s a thicker consistency, thicker than like a brownie batter, but soo good! I’d love to know what you think of the recipe!


    I was really disappointed with this recipe. 1 cup of brown sugar is too much to cream into 1/4 cup of butter. My butter was softened and I mixed it for over 5 minutes with my kitchen aid stand mixer but it just wouldn’t cream smooth. Most recipes don’t have such a large sugar to butter ratio. I finished making the recipe hoping that it wouldn’t be too noticeable when finished but unfortunately you can still notice the sugar texture and it isn’t fluffy as it should be.


    How much does this make?

      Lil' Luna

      It makes just a small bowl. I wish I knew an exact amount! Definitely need to double for a bigger crowd. Hope that helps!

    Lesley G

    Awesome! Had a cookie dough craving, found this one on Pinterest and popped upstairs during a commercial to make it πŸ˜‰ I was in a rush so my measurements aren’t “exact”—didn’t bother with the white sugar, added a bit of salt and YUM-O! Hits the spot :). Hubby and I are enjoying a bowl while we catch up on our shows now. Thanks for sharing!!

      Lil' Luna

      Awesome!! So, glad you both like them!! It’s the perfect snack! Thanks!


    This was good, especially with slightly more flour. The best addition, however, was SALT. I didn’t measure it, maybe ΒΌ t? It made all the difference between good results and GREAT results. Will make again.

      Lil' Luna

      Thanks so much for sharing what you did!! So, glad you liked it! We love it!

    Brittany S

    My roommate and i were craving a sweet treat and i found this recipe
    I followed it correctly and it formed just find however it was way overly sweet (more sweet than normal cookie dough) and gritty D: after microwaving it for a minute to get all of the sugar dissolved it was a good texture. Not a favorite recipe but really good in a pinch.

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for giving it a try!! I’m glad you found a way to dissolve the sugar more πŸ™‚


    If I used oat flour would it still work cause I’ve heard that raw flour is not good

      Lil' Luna

      Unfortunately, we have never tried oat flour. If you give it a try, let me know. πŸ˜‰


    The brown sugar was a little much. I’d start with maybe a half cup. But overall: this was delicious!


    Good, but just a tad too sweet for my liking. I may experiment by cutting back some of the sugar next time. πŸ˜‰

      Lil' Luna

      Thank you for trying it! πŸ™‚ You for sure could adjust it to your liking πŸ™‚


    How many servings don’t this recipe make?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I don’t know an exact amount, but it makes a small bowl full. A few cups maybe?

    Kiesha Talm

    Yum! Yum! Yum! That’s literally what I said all day after making this. I often have a craving for cookie dough, but I don’t eat it because it has raw eggs in it. I made a quadruple batch and froze the half that was left after I ate as much as I could. It was my 2018 resolution to find a recipe for cookie dough with no eggs in it. I succeeded! I took out the sugar for a little healthier option the next time I made it, but I still love it! My siblings just can’t get over it either- yum! Thanks for the recipe, Kristyn!


    Your recipe seems very accurate and delicious. Thank you for sharing

    healthy DIET MAMA

    I am on a diet so I chose a healthier option. I added melted peanut butter in place of brown sugar and took out regular sugar all together. I also used whole wheat flour.

    Lilia gray

    Cant you get salmonella from flour too?

      Kristyn Merkley

      I am sure there are health risks to eating a lot of things raw. That is something that each person needs to decide for themselves.


    So tasty!!


    Flour (I use King Arthur) now has a warning label on it that says it shouldn’t be eaten raw. Is there a different type of flour that you are using in this recipe? Thanks!


    I just made this, adding 3 Tbsp of Cocoa powder to make it more like a brownie batter cookie dough; so good! My only comment would be that it was veeeeeery sweet, I didn’t end up putting in the extra 1/4 of sugar because I already found it sweet enough as is.


    It was really yummy my brother kept begging me for it but I said no this is mine. Yummy thanks for the recipe.


    Made this and found it WAY too grainy! I threw it in the oven for just under 9 minutes and it was still soft but less sweet and grainy, fairly good taste afterwards


    Can you use waterinstead of milk?
