How to Make Edible Cookie Dough
This edible cookie dough is made with healthy pantry staples that will leave you guilt free. Say hello to the ingredient list for this chocolate chip edible cookie dough.
Garbanzo beans- Forget the flour as the base for cookie dough and add a little extra protein to your dessert. GARBANZO BEANS. I know it sounds crazy, but the beautiful things about garbanzo beans is that they take on the flavor of things they are mixed with!
The only maintenance warning I have for you about garbanzo bean is to take make sure and take off the shell of the garbanzo bean. Do this by straining the liquid from the can by pouring the garbanzo beans in a strainer and rinse them with water.
Next, pour garbanzo beans onto a double layer of paper towel or a tea towel. Gently rub garbanzo beans with another towel and you will see the shell of the garbanzo beans falling off!
After that, place garbanzo beans in a food processor. They are ready to go.
Cashew Butter- Cashew butter is the reason that this edible cookie dough tastes exactly like cookie dough. It has a little sweet and a little savory. It’s thick and creamy consistency gives the edible cookie dough the texture it needs!
We love trader joes creamy salted cashew butter. Feel free to use your favorite cashew butter as long as it’s drippy.
Vanilla extract- We kept the vanilla in this edible cookie dough because what makes cookie dough taste like cookie dough more than vanilla? NOTHING.
Maple Syrup- Forget the brown sugar in this recipe and use maple syrup! It’s perfectly sweet and gives this chocolate chip edible cookie dough a delicious warm flavor.
Water- If the edible cookie dough is not mixing (maybe your cashew butter wasn’t drippy enough) add a little bit of water at a time until the cookie dough is to your desired consistency.
Chocolate chips- We used mini chocolate chips in this edible cookie dough because we wanted a mini chocolate chip in EVERY bite. Normal chocolate chips would also work!
