Vegan Cookie Dough

We all love cookies, right? If you know someone that doesn’t like cookies, cut them out immediately – you don’t need that negativity in your life.

Kidding! Make them these or OMG these, and convert them to team cookie. Then, you can bond over the fact that everybody loves to eat cookie dough almost as much as the cookies themselves! I love a chewy cookie as much as anybody, but there’s something about the gooey, molten cookie center. Totally the best part. Which is why I adore skillet cookies, cause the entire thing is basically the gooey center!

Vegan Cookie Dough

The only thing that could rival that ooey, gooey center? Rich, sweet, edible vegan cookie dough, no oven required. With the warmer weather finally arriving, any time we can skip turning on a hot oven is a plus, right? This vegan cookie dough has all the incredible flavor of cookies, but you can eat it straight up – and it’s healthy enough to enjoy for breakfast!

Seriously though, recipes like this are ones that I think of when people ask “but like, what do vegans eat?”

The ingredients for the vegan cookie dough are super simple, and you probably have them all already! Chickpeas for the gooey, rich texture, dates for caramel-like sweetness, and oats to thicken things up. You can add a little bit of water if it seems way too thick, but don’t add too much! Cause nobody wants runny cookie dough. Feel free to add more dates than I called for in the recipe, if you need a little more sweetness.

Blend all that goodness in the food processor until totally smooth, add some vegan chocolate chips, and devour.

This vegan cookie dough is super luscious and rich, and so satisfying. Made with just a few plant ingredients, you can consume an entire bowl of this without worrying about horrid food-borne illnesses, and without the cruelty!

So many wins, per usual when it comes to being vegan! 🙂

Have a happy, healthy day, friends!
