Sometimes, the ten minutes required to preheat the oven is just too long to bear. You want cookies, and you want cookies now. The world has finally embraced the fact that people eat cookie dough—regardless of the dangers of raw egg or flour—so companies took it upon themselves to manufacture safe, ready-to-eat dough. These vegan versions are spoonable, snackable, and utterly irresistible. From classic chocolate chip to decadent double fudge, grab a spoon and dig in.
If you grew up in the nineties or anytime before then, the popular consensus was that raw egg in cookie dough could transmit salmonella or some other awful food-borne disease. Given this information, one would logically assume that vegan cookie dough, naturally devoid of egg entirely, would be safe to consume.
Unfortunately, the raw egg isn’t the only dangerous element in cookie dough. Who knew this innocent sweet could be so harmful, right? The FDA strongly cautions against consuming any food containing raw flour, as it is untreated and the processing of grains does not kill harmful bacteria. Since 2009, the FDA has reported 168 known illnesses and 20 hospitalizations traced back to foods like prepared cookie and cake mixes. Sure, the chances are slim, but if you’re enjoying vegan cookie dough made with raw flour, there is still a risk.
The cookie doughs below (and all commercially available cookie dough intended to be enjoyed raw) are crafted with heat-treated flour. This kills the germs and is approved by the FDA as safe for consumption.
Commercially available edible cookie doughs are free from raw egg, but not all of them are inherently vegan. Many contain dairy in the form of milkfat, butter, whey, and/or milk solids.
Even so, there are “accidentally vegan” raw cookie doughs out there, as well as a number of intentionally plant-based options. Every product below is guaranteed vegan, so stock up and pace yourself—it’s easy to get carried away with more than just a spoonful of the sweet stuff.
