What ingredients are in vegan gluten-free edible cookie dough?

- Almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Maple syrup
- Coconut sugar
- Almond milk
- Coconut oil
- Vanilla extract
- Mini vegan chocolate chips
How to Make Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cups
Let’s do this!
First, we’ll start by creating the cookie dough. Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, and sugar in a large bowl. Mix together and then add in the maple syrup, almond milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla. Give it another mix until a soft dough forms. You may find it easier to mix the cookie dough together using clean hands instead of a spoon or spatula. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips.
Next, we’ll roll the cookie dough into 12 balls. After, flatten and mold each ball into a 2-inch cookie shape. These rounds of dough will act as the filling for our vegan chocolate chip cookie dough cups!
Now it’s time to prepare the chocolate coating. To do this, simply combine dark chocolate chips and coconut oil in a bowl. Microwave in 30 seconds intervals, stirring between, until the chocolate is fully melted. Careful not to burn the chocolate! It should only require approximately 3 intervals to melt.
We’re almost to the finish line! After lining a muffin tin with parchment liners, add 2-3 spoonfuls of melted chocolate into the base of each one. Then, place a round of cookie dough on top of the chocolate. After, cover the cookie dough with additional melted chocolate. Store the muffin tin in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until the chocolate solidifies.
- Feel free to use all-purpose flour! I kept these vegan chocolate chip cookie dough cups as healthy as possible, and gluten-free, by using a combination of almond flour + coconut flour. However, traditional all-purpose flour will work just fine. Make sure you take precautionary measures before consuming raw all-purpose flour (such as baking the flour before creating the recipe).
- I used these vegan mini chocolate chips for the cookie dough and these vegan dark chocolate chips for the chocolate coating. In my opinion, these are the best kind to use!
- Make these cups as small or as large as you’d like. The recipe is written for a muffin tin which creates jumbo cups. However, you can make smaller cups by simply layering less chocolate and cookie dough. Alternatively, you can use a mini muffin tin to create mini cups.
- Keep these chocolate cookie dough cups stored in the refrigerator to maintain freshness.
