Risk of Eating Raw Flour
While we've always been warned that the biggest danger of eating raw cookie dough is the raw egg, in recent years, there have been reported contaminated flours.
Therefore, the CDC does not recommend consuming raw, uncooked flours. While the risk is very very low, it is worth mentioning and you should always stay aware of any foodborne outbreaks.
To Eliminate Risk, you heat your flour to 165 degrees. You can do this by popping it in your microwave, heat for 30 seconds and mix, heat for another 30 seconds, and mix, and heat for a final 30 seconds. This should bring your flour up to 165 degrees. You can use an instant-read thermometer to be sure. You can also heat it in a 350-degree oven for a few minutes.

Not only are these little bites healthier (and safer) than regular raw cookie dough, they're a snack from scratch that's made in just minutes.
Step 1: Mix dry ingredients.

Vegan Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Bites
- Add flour to a small microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds and mix, heat for another 30 seconds, and mix, and heat for a final 30 seconds. This should bring your flour up to 165 degrees. To be sure, use an instant read thermometer.
- In a medium sized bowl, add the heated flour, salt, chia seeds, flaxseed and give quick mix.
- Add melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to a small bowl or pour spout Pyrek, and whisk.
- Add liquid ingredients to the bowl with flour and mix well until it's all combined into a smooth dough. Add bowl to fridge for a few minutes to slightly cool the flour, otherwise if it's too warm, it may melt your chocolate chips.
- Once cool, fold in chocolate chips.
- Roll out into 12-13 small balls.
