What is your guilty pleasure? Mine has got to be eating chocolate chip cookie dough. I can’t get enough of it. Which is why I had to come up with the Best Vegan Edible Cookie Dough recipe. Now I can have my favorite any time I want. Let’s make some, shall we?
What are vegan chocolate chips?
Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are my favorite to use when baking any vegan desserts. These are SO good. One of my favorite things to do with them is buy banana cream pie yogurt and sprinkle a few of these dark chocolate chips over the top for a quick dessert that’s pretty healthy. I also love to use them when I bake my vegan chocolate peanut butter muffins.
IMPORTANT: How to Make Raw Flour Safe to Eat!
You MUST cook your flour first to kill off any bacteria. This is crucial and such an easy step to make sure your food is safe to eat. All you do is add your flour to a baking pan and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. That’s it!
