Edible cookie dough is popping up all over the internet.
And I don’t hate it.
I am a big cookie dough lover and am constantly looking for ways to make it at home!
While you can easily omit eggs from the dough recipe, I learned that eating raw flour is not good – it can contain E. coli, which can make you super sick. So with flour out, I was totally perplexed about how to make a safe edible cookie dough.
But then I remembered about ROLLED OATS.
You can totally eat oats raw (AKA overnight oats), which makes them the perfect dry component for the dough. And because I love you more than anything (and want you to be safe), I confirmed with the USDA’s Ask Karen hotline (oats are A-OKAY!).
Since oats have a more prominent flavor than regular all-purpose flour, I decided to choose mixin’s that complement their stronger flavor profile.
So I made Edible Monster Cookie Dough.
I loaded up my dough with mini M&Ms, pecans, and chocolate chips – it is all the flavor of Monster Cookies without having to bake them!
