Ditch The Oven: 7 Ways to Make Edible Cookie Dough

 In Make, Tips & Tricks

I don’t know about you, but Fall marks the time of year where it’s socially acceptable to cozy up with a pumpkin spice candle, good netflix show, and all the SNACKS. Instead of binge eating a pint of ben and jerry’s, may we suggest trying edible cookie dough? This is the perfect feel good dessert no matter what kind of day you’re having.

It’s also good for those of you who are still in the stage where you’re either too nervous or too lazy to turn on the oven. All you need is a mixer or strong arm and you are good to go.

This post brings me back to baking cookies with my mom and eating 1/2 the batter before she had the chance to put it in the oven. Sound familiar? This way, you won’t have to sneak in spoonfuls but rather enjoy it together!

Some of these recipes are vegan friendly and ALL are surprisingly very easy to make. Don’t worry about salmonella either. All are egg free and completely safe to eat. The only issue you may have is a stomach ache from overeating!


Not sure I’ve ever even seen a baked brownie that looked this good. I mean, do I need to say much? Butternut Bakery has a secret hack to making this the thiccccest of them all. You NEED this in your life.
