Making Raw Cookie Dough

Sneaking a bite of raw cookie dough is undoubtedly one of the best parts of holiday baking, that is if you don’t mind ignoring the CDC’s warnings about getting salmonella or E. coli.

But now that it’s almost 2019, we’re a lot smarter about the dangers of eating raw eggs and flour. There are even ways to make cookie dough that’s not actually raw, designed to be scooped up and enjoyed ― without baking ― by the bucketful.

We’ve got a recipe for raw cookie dough that uses simple ingredients and is gluten-free to boot (which helps avoid the E. coli risks associated with eating raw flour). The base of the dough starts with chickpeas and unsweetened peanut butter, adding a boost of protein and fiber.
