Contrary to popular belief, not all cookie dough is edible when raw. Cookie dough traditionally has eggs and raw flour inside, both of which should not be consumed without cooking.
My Edible Vegan Funfetti Cookie Dough does not contain eggs, and I toast the flour before adding it to the dough. This way, my cookie dough recipe is totally safe to eat raw! Many cookie dough recipes are not edible or vegan, but this cookie dough recipe is formulated to consume without cooking.
Just a few simple steps and you will be eating cookie dough in no time!
You'll see that I recommend toasting your flour before adding it to the cookie dough. This is not to add additional flavor or color. In fact, it is for sterilization purposes.
Raw flour often contains E. Coli, a common bacteria that is often responsible for food poisoning. Flour has not been cooked or sterilized upon distribution, so it is technically considered raw food, much like meat.
It is recommended that no matter what flour you are using, do not eat it raw. Many packaged cookie dough varieties will also advise to not consume raw for this reason. The best way to remove any bacteria from the flour is by baking it to toast it.
Toasting the flour will also give a lightly toasted flavor that mimics the flavor of a baked cookie. So with toasting the flour in the oven, it has a double purpose. Be sure to not skip on this step!
Baking this funfetti cookie dough is not recommended. The absence of leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder means it won't bake properly. Additionally, the flour has already been heat-treated, altering its texture. Enjoy it as a safe-to-eat, delicious raw treat instead!

Sprinkles can be a little tricky when it comes to being vegan. Some of these colorful candies are totally vegan-friendly, while others may have a secret ingredient that's not quite plant-based. The good news is, most sprinkles are dairy-free, so that's a win! However, here's where it gets interesting - some sprinkles sneak in a thing called confectioner's glaze, which is made from insects. Yikes! That's a no-go for strict vegans. Just make sure to check the labels to find vegan-approved ones!
While this edible cookie dough is already loaded with colorful rainbow sprinkles, feel free to sprinkle in your favorite mix-ins! Here are some of my favorite additions -
