I never thought that I would need to warn people about only being able to eat raw cookie dough because I thought that everyone loved cookie dough. Eating abundant raw cookie dough is every child’s dream, is it not? Apparently it is not.

I was told by Mitch when I first developed this recipe: I came over to him with a spoonful of the scrumptious finished product, and I told him to take a bite. He timidly asked what it was, and I excitedly responded, “Cookie dough!” He nibbled off the smallest bite in human history from the end of the spoon, and I encouraged him to take another one and to aim for a chocolate chip.

“I’ll just have some after you bake it. I don’t really like cookie dough.” He blew my mind.

Immediately I started laughing because I had created the recipe to only be consumed as cookie dough, so he was kiiiiiiind of outta luck, but then I remembered what he just said, *slow motion* “I don’t really like cookie dough,” and I was baffled!

I have asked him about his weird aversion to cookie dough a few times, “Did you get sick after eating it one time?” “Do you maybe just not like because you weren’t supposed to eat the kind with raw eggs when you were little?” “Are you even sure that you don’t like it?” But he is pretty adamant about his inexplicable distaste for it.

That’s okay. More for me, right? I can only hope that other people gain as much happiness as I do from devouring whole jars of cookie dough. Plus, this cookie dough has the added benefits of

  1. Being cruelty free! It is completely vegan, dudes.
  2. Being so so healthy! It is made with whole-food ingredients, is balanced in fats and carbs, and even packs some secret legume into your sweets.
