Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

Healthy edible cookie dough is a variation of traditional cookie dough that is made with healthier ingredients and is safe to eat raw. It typically contains no raw eggs or flour, which are the two main culprits for food poisoning and digestive issues. Instead, edible cookie dough is made with ingredients like homemade oat flour, nut butter, and natural sweeteners, such as honey or maple syrup.

Besides being safe to eat raw, healthy edible cookie dough offers several health benefits. For one, it’s lower in calories and sugar than traditional cookie dough, making it a great option for those who are watching their weight or blood sugar levels. It’s also gluten-free, which is good news for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

This edible cookie dough is also rich in nutrients. Oat flour, for example, lowers bad cholesterol, reduces risk of heart disease, regulates blood pressure, controls blood sugar levels, improves digestion, and aids in weight management. Natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup are also rich in antioxidants and other beneficial compounds.

If you don’t have the time or ingredients to make your own edible cookie dough, don’t worry. There are many brands and stores that sell pre-made versions. Look for them in the health food section of your grocery store or online. Just make sure to read the ingredients list carefully to ensure that it’s made with healthy, natural ingredients.
