This healthy edible sugar cookie dough is gluten-free, egg-free and totally delicious. It's sweetened with dates and a little bit of maple syrup, and we use almond and vanilla extract to give it that unmistakeable sugar cookie dough flavor. We also added some rainbow sprinkles for extra fun.
We just finished a Whole30, and I'm not saying I immediately went crazy, but I was craving something sweet. This gluten-free edible sugar cookie dough is just the right level of sweet. The worst ingredient in it is maple syrup (ok and rainbow sprinkles), so it's pretty much a guilt-free dessert. Put it into a bowl and eat it with a spoon. You won't regret it.
This edible cookie dough is also loaded with dates, so it's a great way to get extra dates in your diet if you're in the final stretch of your pregnancy and trying to naturally induce labor (this was me a few months ago).
