Edible Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Dough

Y'all... This might be my fav recipe to date! This edible cookie dough not only TASTES JUST like regular cookie dough, but its also:

  • Completely safe to eat

  • Vegan

  • Made with whole food ingredients

  • Homemade

  • Naturally sweetened with dates

  • Allergen friendly

  • Loaded with nutrients, protein, and fiber

We rolled these into little balls and froze them individually so that they could be pulled out for a healthy snack or sweet treat ANY time of day!

If you try them, please leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Bon Appetit!


  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed well

  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (or nut/seed butter of choice)

  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp baking soda

  • ~5-6 dates (adjust to your level of sweetness. This = a very subtle sweetness, most of the sweet comes from the chocolate chips. Want sweeter? I'd start with 7-8 dates and go from there.)

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free if needed)

  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (allergen friendly if needed)


  • Add all of ingredients to a food processor, except chocolate chips. Process until it creates a smooth dough, scraping down the sides as needed. Give a little taste and if it's not sweet enough, throw in another date!

  • Once the dough has formed, fold in chocolate chips by hand.

  • Roll into balls and place on a baking sheet in the freezer (make sure to put parchment paper, aluminum foil, or a silicone pad on the baking sheet so they don't stick). Then transfer to a freezer safe container.

  • Pull out and let sit for ~ 10-15 minutes, to defrost, and enjoy!

Cook's notes:

Add the salt, it won't break the bank. And it makes all the difference in making this taste like real deal cookie dough.

You can leave the baking soda out, but it too really enhances the authenticity of this recipe!

As someone who LOVES cookie dough, I'm intrigued with this recipe. I'll have to give it a try and see if it really compares! I'll report back when I do. Do you think you could leave the peanut butter out and it would still work and just be regular cookie dough?

I can't wait to hear what you think! The peanut butter acts as the binder and provides a lot of the moisture, so I don't think you can eliminate it. You could sub another nut or seed butter though. Maybe even tahini? Keep me posted!
