How to Make A Kid-Friendly Edible Cookie Dough Recipe
Making this delicious egg-free cookie dough couldn’t be easier—so easy that your kiddos can help you whip it up. First, start by letting your butter come to room temperature. You can do so by letting it sit on the counter for about 30 minutes, or you can microwave a bowl and cover the butter with it for a few minutes. Either way, you want your butter to be soft enough to mix without clumps. We used grass-fed cow butter for this recipe, but you can also sub for vegan butter or coconut oil—note that the oil will give it a coconut flavor and different texture.
Next, gather your remaining ingredients. You’ll need coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice), vanilla, salt, Dandy Blend, flour, milk of choice, and mini chocolate chips. For the flour, you can use gluten-free flour or almond flour. If you substitute with coconut flour, note that it will absorb more of the moisture and you’ll need to add more milk. This substitute will also give the dough a coconut-y flavor.
Mix the butter and sugar, then add vanilla, salt, and Dandy Blend until combined. Sprinkle in the flour and fold until a crumbly, even-colored consistency is achieved. Pour in the milk, one tablespoon at a time, adding more if needed, until you get a smooth dough. Lastly, add in the chocolate chips, combine, and refrigerate for about thirty minutes, then enjoy. You can eat it by the spoonful or use it as a dip for cookies, graham crackers, or fruit.
