Do you miss eating raw cookie dough?
Go on – admit it. You do.
One of the best things about this indulgent no flour cookie dough recipe is that it’s gluten-free. So many people with Type 1 Diabetes also have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant, so this is a way to get your cookie dough fix without a need for gluten.
This dough is not designed to be baked – it’s specifically a raw dough to eat right out of the bowl, just like in the old days.
We got this recipe from our friend Mira at The Ingredient Guru, and we bring it to you today with her kind permission. Enjoy!
