It’s gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, as well as vegan and paleo – but most importantly: it’s super delicious.

This recipe is part of the “How To’s” post series, where I share my go-to baking tips and tricks, as well as super simple recipes for which I don’t know into which category to place them. (Oops?) You can find all the posts in the series here or in the recipe index under “How To’s”.

Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough {gluten, dairy, egg, soy, nut & refined sugar free, vegan, paleo} - This vegan cookie dough is the perfect treat for when you are craving the buttery deliciousness of chocolate chip cookie dough, but want to eat something reasonably healthy at the same time. It’s gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, as well as vegan and paleo – but most importantly: it’s super delicious.

Can we get one thing out of the way?

My paleo & vegan caramel sauce isn’t actual caramel sauce. And almond milk isn’t actual milk. And my raw vegan raspberry cheesecake isn’t actually a cheesecake. And nice cream isn’t actually ice cream.

I know. We all know this. We, as in: we healthy and allergy friendly food bloggers and foodies. So leaving outraged comments about us somehow lying to you, dear reader… well, doesn’t really accomplish much, now does it?

Each health journey has it’s restrictions. It’s just the way it is. But my aim here, through The Loopy Whisk, is to make things at least a bit easier – by way of yummy recipes. Because, no, my healthy caramel sauce won’t taste exactly like “normal” caramel sauce. It’s different. Does that make it somehow worse? Less tasty? Less enjoyable? I don’t think so. (It’s actually downright delicious, if I do say so myself. And it’s sooo much closer to caramel than any date paste can ever aspire to be.)

So when I now introduce you to this healthy vegan chocolate chip cookie dough – can we just skip the outraged comments about how “this isn’t REAL cookie dough”? Please? Pretty please? With a cherry on top? (The cherry would be “real” if that helps.)

Okay? Okay.

Now, who loves cookie dough? How about chocolate chip cookie dough? Yes? Then this gluten free vegan chocolate chip cookie dough recipe is for you. The recipe couldn’t be simpler – all you need is 5 ingredients and 2 minutes… and the result is a whole lot of deliciousness.

This vegan cookie dough is made from a mix of finely ground almonds, ground gluten free oats, coconut oil, maple syrup and (of course) a generous amount of chopped dark chocolate (dark chocolate chips totally work, too). 

It doesn’t taste 100% like cookie dough – but it comes pretty darn close.
It’s quite almondy (<— totally a word) so if you’re not a fan of almonds, you can sub in ground hazelnuts, peanuts or any other nutty yumminess that strikes your fancy. Similarly, you can use dates rather than maple syrup to sweeten the vegan cookie dough, which will make it softer and stickier, which is can never be a bad thing with cookie dough.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: Makes ~1¼ cup of the cookie dough
Ingredients
  • ½ cup finely ground almonds
  • ⅛ cup coconut oil
  • ⅛ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup finely ground gluten free oats
  • ⅓ cup (1.8oz) chopped dairy and sugar free dark chocolate (Note 1)
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together until you get a homogeneous, slightly sticky mixture.
  2. If you want the cookie dough to firm up, refrigerate it for about ½ hour.
  3. To serve, roll into balls to have as a bite-size sweet snack, or use as part of another dessert.
  4. The vegan cookie dough keeps well in the fridge for about a week, or in the freezer for 3 - 4 weeks (but I give it a day).
Notes
