Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I’ve never met a cookie dough I didn’t like. In fact, I might enjoy cookie dough more than actually baked cookies and I always judge a dessert on the deliciousness of the un-cooked version.

It comes as no surprise that instead of craving a cookie or two after dinner, I want a scoop of cookie dough. Don’t lie, we’ve all wished we had a spoonful from time to time.

And we’ve all eaten cookie dough with uncooked eggs. We also ALL SURVIVED!

I know there is salmonella and all that jazz, but I guess I have a raw cookie dough inferiority complex thinking it will never happen to me.

There is something nostalgic about licking the beaters from my mother’s electric hand mixer when I was young that makes me smile.

Although I’ve never had any complications from raw cookie dough I figured I’d be on the safe side and to figure out how to make just a little bit of cookie dough instead of a whole batch. And I wanted an eggless cookie dough recipe that was actually safe to eat.

I created my eggless single serve chocolate chip cookie dough. Just a small bowl of deliciousness. Truth be told, it actually will feed about two, unless you are really in the mood.

Eggless Single Serving Cooke Dough takes just a few minutes to prepare and you can indulge in yummy cookie dough amazingness.

Raw flour can also contain E. Coli, to prevent this, pasteurize it at home. Microwaving is the quickest way. Place raw flour into the microwave (flour alone, not the dough) and heat on high for 45 seconds.

Please be mindful that all microwaves are different. Watch the flour closely so it doesn’t burn. You can also put it in the oven on 350 for 5ish minutes.

No chocolate chips on hand? No worries. You can use anything you want to add-in, or nothing at all. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped Twix, Butterfinger or Snickers all work well.

Sometimes I even add nuts. And other days, I just eat the dough straight. It still hits the spot!

This makes it sound like I eat raw cookie dough on a regular basis. I can assure you, I don’t, but when I do, I enjoy it.

I also use this eggless single serving cookie dough recipe to make my award winning Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes! Can you imagine? The kids go nuts for these! Who am I kidding? Adults go nuts for these too.

Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes- great cupcake idea for kids birthday parties! Easy cupcake decorating idea for anyone to try.

Soft cupcakes filled with cookie dough and topped with light and fluffy buttercream. Pure heaven!

a’not have chocolate chips on hand”??? not in my universe! ;0


Good recipe, but I added the chocolate chips after I melted the butter so it ended up like chocolate cookie dough instead of chocolate chip cookie dough:-)

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    Chocolate cookie dough isn’t a bad thing. LOL.


    I had the same problem, and mine also turned out very soupy (not at all doUghy texture). Any tips/ suggestions?

      Jessica at Savory Experiments

      Hi Megan! Sorry to hear that! The number one issue people have is that they melt the butter instead of using softened butter or accidentally added a little too much water by not measuring. If you need to soften butter fast, check out some of these easy techniques, but whatever you do, don’t put it in the microwave! 🙂

      Jessica at Savory Experiments

      And if it is a little soupy, add just a pinch more flour to compensate.


This was so great! TotAlly hit the spot for leriod cravings and the perfect size To avoid binging which is so easy when you buy Cookie dough from the store and sooo easy took two minutes!! Thank you so much

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    And thank YOU For stopping by to let us know!!!!


my daughter has egg allergy and i want her to taste cookies without egg .how long do i have to bake these.never done cookies before so want to try small batch.

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    Hi Subhasri, this recipe is meant to be eaten raw. In fact, they probably wouldn’t bake since they don’t have a leavening agent in them. I found this recipe from Genius Kitchen, which is a reputable site. I hope it works for your daughter. Everyone needs a cookie sometimes 🙂

Orianna Black

I have tried many other edible cookie dough recipes and they were either to much or not good. But this recipe is AMAZING. It was so yummy and the texture and size was just right! thank you so much for this recipe! I will make sure to tell all of my friends about this recipe! thank you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    Yay!! That is what I love to hear! We make it a lot… more often than I wish to admit. LOL.

Meredith Cook

I love this recipe, I normally eat raw cookie dough no matter what. I made a batch of this then I bought store made cookie dough and this on tastes so much more fresh

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    I’m so glad to hear that and happy you stopped by to let me know!


      This recipe was awful. But thank you for it.

        Jessica at Savory Experiments

        Sorry to hear you didn’t care for it. What was it that you didn’t like?


As a health inspector, I always encourage people not to consume raw cookie dough due to the possibility of salmonella and other bacterial contamination that could be present.

I loved your recipe- it was delicious, not too sweet, had a fantastic texture, and best of all was egg free! The one recommendation that I make (beg!) is to add a step to pasteurize the flour for those who may not think to do it otherwise. It is now known that certain strains of E. coli bacteria are ubiquitous in commercially prepared flours. E. Coli can lead to devastating infectious, and leave behind life long complications. Pasteurization of flour can occur through microwaving, using a frying pan, and baking on a tray in the oven (of the flour alone, not the dough).

Thanks again!!!

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    Thanks for the feedback! I’ll add that to the recipe.


      I microwaved the flour like it says in the recipe. There were a couple lumps in my flour and they actually started burning and smoking in just a minute in the microwave. I scooped out the burned bit and everything turned out great. I just wanted to let you know so people are aware that’s a possibility.

        Jessica at Savory Experiments

        Thanks Jeanette! I’m glad you still enjoyed the cookie dough. I’ve never had this happen, but I would gather that a high wattage microwave could certianly make some sparks. Love the feedback!


        This happened to me too which surprised me as my microwave is low (700w).After a full minute on high my flour came out burnt and sent smoke out of the microwave, creating a disgusting smell which spread throughout the house.

          Jessica at Savory Experiments

          So sorry Jeanette! I’m guessing all microwaves are a little different.

    Ellen Lantz

    I am a Registered Dietitian and viewed this recipe while preparing for a “cooking for one’ class. It’s a great idea and sounds like it would be delicious but the nutritional analysis is just plain not accurate. The butter and sugar alone would have more calories than 218 and 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter would have around 20 grams of fat. Of course there is also fat in the chocolate chips and small amounts in flour. I wish it did only have 218 calories but sadly it’s just not true. I may have to check it out though… I love cookie dough and always feel guilty when I eat it since I know the potential consequences 🙂

      Jessica at Savory Experiments

      Hi ELlen, I use an app that calculates the nutritional info based on common ingredients, I don’t calculate it individually, so you may be 100% right. As in every recipe, the nutritional info can vary greatly based on the exact ingredients you use.

Abby E.

This recipe was amazing! I love to bake, but don’t have the patience to make large batches, and because I’m twelve, I just love experimenting. My dad is very hesitant of these experiments and hates most cakes/cookies that have anything to do with mugs, but the (and all the rest of my family) just loved this recipe. I also found that if you add the baking soda and microwave for about 45-60 seconds, it gives it this heavenly gooey and almost caking/fudgy texture that I know I love. Thanks a million for sharing this recipe! It was truly the best recipe I have ever tried for edible and raw cookie dough.

    Jessica at Savory Experiments

    I’m glad you loved it, Abby!


This recipe is amazing! Just be sure to add the step to brown the flour otherwise it can lead to salmonella. It’s dangerous to eat raw flour so either browning it over the pan or toasting it for 5 mins on 350 in the oven is imperative to make it edible~


This made my day.

    Savory Experiments

    I’m glad 🙂


I’ve tried out a bunch of edible cookie dough recipes but this one was by far my favorite! It’s delicious and so easy to make. Thank you!

    Savory Experiments

    Yay~ I love when I can spread my cookie dough love with others.

secret i'm not saying

OMG I love this soo much i cant be more thankful that you made this thanks soo much

Paige C

I’m a 10 year old girl who loves to bake. This was one of the easiest recipes I have made in a long time thanks you so much for sharing it.❤

    Savory Experiments

    I’m glad you enjoyed it Paige!


I’ve been wanting to try an edible cookie dough recipe but hesitant to make so much. . .felt I’d either love it and devour all of it in one day or hate it and have wasted the ingredients, neither of which is acceptable to me.

So when I came across your single serving option I was thrilled and had to try it immediately!

It was very easy to make and had good flavor. Thank you for sharing.

    Savory Experiments

    I’m glad you love it!


I’ve probably made this 15 times in the last two weeks. Thank you so much for this recipe.

    Savory Experiments

    Rachel, that is what I love to hear and thank you for taking the time to stop by and leave a note. It really made my day.


Please put a warning on this!! Raw cookie dough isn’t dangerous because of the egg, it’s dangerous because of the raw *flour*. Flour doesn’t undergo any processing, cleaning, or sterilization before you unpack it, and because unlike an egg it’s not made to fend off bacteria growth, it’s actually the perfect medium for the nasty infections that people like pregnant women should definitely not be eating, egg or no egg.

    Jessica Whitney

    Yes uncooked flour is dangerous. To go around this problem, I used oat flour instead and it was awesome!

      Savory Experiments

      Great substitute!


      Any flour not treated is dangerous. Just because it is a different type of flour doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be browned or toasted before using! Otherwise it was a great recipe.


    Hi Elizabeth!
    Yes raw flour can be dangerous but that is why they invented the sieve.
    You see it’s original purpose was not just to avoid lumps in flour or refine it, it was designed to prevent bugs in flour therefore taking the danger out of it.
    Thanks, Hanna

    P.S Almond flour will work if you are still uncomfortable using normal flour


I saw this recipe and have made it twice today!
So delicious for a quick late night snack and perfect portion size. 🙂
Thanks for the great recipe!

    Savory Experiments

    I’m glad you love it and thank you for taking the time out of your day to leave me a note. It means the world!


      Hi! I have now made this twice. Since I am watching my calories, any idea what the nutrition facts of this recipe is?

        Jessica at Savory Experiments

        Hi Angela,

        I recently added the nutritional info.


      Hi there what should I do if it is too sweet??! Because I doubled it

        Savory Experiments

        I would omit just a little bit of the sugar.

        Jessica at Savory Experiments

        Hmm… it is a little hard to reduce the sweet factor after you’ve already made it, but maybe add another pinch of salt or start over.


      I’m on a diet but I would like to know how many calories this cookie dough has.

        Savory Experiments

        Hi Emily, I honestly don’t know. I don’t have a reliable nutrition calculator either. What I can say is that it is an indulgence and everything is okay in moderation 🙂


I saw this recipe and made it immediately. I had all ingredients on hand in cabinets. I love eating raw cookie dough and this recipe was amazingly delicious. I’m of average size but I have major sweet tooth and usually eat more than 1 serving so I was skeptical but tried recipe as exact and it made plenty for one! Cookie dough is pretty rich to me so I can’t eat it all day long. If you are reading this recipe it’s a must try. I already memorized it and will be making a lot when I want a smack but don’t want to make my recipe for chocolate chip cookies that makes huge batch. This is so cute and perfect and I’m raving amount it to everyone. My kids also loved.. I let them have a bite! Haha. Thanks so much. Only downside I have is I wished I had this recipe when I was pregnant and craving cookie dough and hubs did not want me eating raw eggs 🙁
Again thank you!’ Recipe is life changing

    Savory Experiments

    Sarah, Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop and write such a sweet comment. When I posted this recipe, it was on a whim and yet I’ve received such positive feedback. I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I hope to have more recipes you enjoy just as much. XOXO- Jessica


Soon as I seen this, I made it. Well, it is gone! It was delicious and I don’t have to have a whole tube of cookie dough calling my name.

Thankyou very much.

I just ate it plain…. nothing else added.

    Savory Experiments

    I’m glad you enjoyed!


      I’m an 11 year old girl that loves to bake an cook on my free time! I also have sweet tooth a quite often and love cookie dough this was amazing and perfect for an after school snack(middle school gets hard?) or after volleyball! I recommend this to everyone it makes a perfect serving and I am definitely going to make this along with some of your other recipes because this was amazing!

        Savory Experiments

        I’m glad you loved it Faith!


LOVE this recipe, tastes delicious. I suggest adding a little more water or less flour if you dont melt te butter, because it came out a little floury for me.


Made these last night and it was so yummy! Hit the spot! Thank you for this perfect single-serving cookie dough recipe!


If you had to use this cookie dough as self defense: Some day’s it is like play dough and you can ball it up and chuck it at someone! Other day’s all you can do is let it ooze out of the dish on their head! But each day that person would open their mouth and let it drop in. They would then simply shout: “DELICIOUS!” And everyone who has had this recipe [including me] would know exactly why! thank you so much for sharing! It is the best cookie dough I ever had!

    Savory Experiments

    Kristelle – thank you so much for stopping by to leave these kind words. It warms my heart to have such positive feedback!


Perfect serving size! This is the best idea ever! Thanks for sharing!

Just tried it and it is perfect! Very delicious and perfect when you need that cookie dough fix! Thanks Jessica!

Chrystal @ YUM eating

Now this is my kind of snack recipe. I pinned this. I have a feeling it will be in my future very soon.

Never tried egg free cookie dough before, I have got to try it! I guess since I am leaving out the eggs I can double up on the chips right? LOL 😉


Im to affraid to eat anything with raw eggs.Great for dough lovers.


Yyyeeesss. Thank you for this. There have been SO many times I wished there was a recipe for just a little bit of cookie dough. Yum!


This is SO awesome. I always love eating cookie dough but I hate having to make a full batch of cookies to have some.

Debbie Denny

Oh yum! that does look good.

Sashi @ GetOffTheCouchAndCook

What a great idea! Unfortunately, you have a higher chance of bad things like e. coli from the uncooked flour than you would if it did have egg in it. That has never stopped me, though. 🙂

Catherine S

I use to love to eat the cookie dough when my mom would make cookies. Thanks for the recipe I can’t wait to make some.


I love the idea of single-serving cookie dough. My cousin and I used to eat so much of this growing up. Now, I can indulge without having too much of the good stuff!

Nancy Mock

What a great idea! I’ll have to show this one to my daughter so she won’t have to buy tubes of cookie dough from the store to eat 🙂 Thank you!


We love single serving ideas! This looks delicious.


That looks so good (minus the chocolate chips). Yep, I’m one of those people that doesn’t like chocolate, but I love plain cookie dough.

Robin (Masshole Mommy)

Bwahahaha – you’re single servings are so little and cute. Quadruple that and that is what I consider to be a single serving 😉
