Okay, hands up if you’ve ever eaten raw cookie dough when you, or someone else, is baking cookie dough? If you didn’t put your hand up, I can only assume you’re lying! Even though we’re told it will give us salmonella, we just can’t resist, it’s so yummy – and hey, you have to check the dough is worth baking into cookies, right? To be honest, the likelihood of getting any kind of food poisoning from raw eggs is very, very low – especially if you’re using fresh eggs. But raw egg is kind of not nice to eat, so edible, eggless cookie dough to the rescue!

Since it doesn’t need any baking, you don’t have to worry about how the gluten free flour changes the chemistry of the bake. And these Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars can easily be adapted to be made with regular flour if you’re not catering for any gluten intolerances.

One of the other things people tend to worry about with cookie dough is the raw flour, apparently it’s not good to eat. As a baker, I have eaten more than my share of raw eggs and raw flour in unbaked doughs and batters and it’s never made me sick. However, the problem of raw flour in edible cookie dough is easily remedied by toasting the flour for 10 minutes in the oven before adding to it, problem solved! Then all you have to worry about is how you’re going to stop everybody eating your share of these incredible Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars!

These Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars are so quick and easy to make, hands on time is about 10 or 15 minutes! The rest is just waiting for it to chill in the fridge, which admittedly does feel painfully long, even though it’s just a couple of hours! Once you’ve mixed up the edible cookie dough part, you just spread it all out into a brownie pan and chill. Then melt some chocolate with some peanut butter, and pour it over the top. Chill again and voila! You have amazing cookie dough bars that are going to make you ridiculously popular! Honestly, I took these into work and they disappeared in record time!

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bars

Yield 15 Bars

Gluten free edible cookie dough with peanut butter and chocolate, made into delicious no bake cookie dough bars! Easy and delicious! 

Ingredients

For the cookie dough:

  • 4 cups (520g) gluten free all purpose/plain flour (or regular AP/Plain flour)
  • 1 cup (230g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1.5 cups , packed (330g) light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  •  1 14oz/397g can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-2 tbsp milk (optional)
  • 1/2 cup (140g)  smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup (175g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

For the topping:

  • 2.5 cups (450g) dark chocolate
  • 1.5 cups (305g) smooth peanut butter

Instructions

To make the cookie dough:

  1. Spread the flour out on a baking sheet, and toast in an oven heated to 300F/150C for 10 minutes. Leave to cool. 
  2. Put the butter, brown sugar, and vanilla extract into the bowl of your stand mixer (or using a handheld electric beater) and beat until creamy and smooth- about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add half of the flour, and beat to combine. With the mixer still running, pour in the condensed milk and beat until fully combined. 
  4. Add the rest of the flour, and the salt, and beat to combine. If the dough looks a little dry (give it a taste test to test the texture if you're unsure) add 1-2 tbsp of milk, 1/2 tbsp a time until you get the desired consistency. I didn't add any milk.
  5. Add the peanut butter and beat on a low speed until just combined. 
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. 
  7. Spread out into a 9"x13" brownie pan {affiliate link} lined with greaseproof paper. Chill in the fridge for one hour. 

To make the topping:

  1. Put the chocolate and peanut butter in a heatproof bowl, and heat in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth. 
  2. Pour over the top of the cookie dough and spread into an even layer. Chill for a further 2 hours, until the chocolate topping is set.
  3. Cut into bars and serve. 

Notes

I've stated that this makes 15 bars, however one bar goes a long, long way! If you'd like more conservative servings cut into 30 small bars

    Hmm, still going to find it hard to resist eating the cookie dough before it goes into the tin. The chocolate & peanut butter topping sounds awesome too. I’m really into PB right now.
