Why it's safe to eat our cookie dough raw

Welcome to the delightful world of Chocolate and the Chip, where we've mastered the art of creating irresistible edible and ready-to-bake vegan cookie dough. In this blog post, we'll take you on a journey behind the scenes, revealing the secrets that make our cookie dough not only delicious but also completely safe to eat raw.

  1. Vegan Magic with Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer: At Chocolate and the Chip, we take pride in our commitment to crafting vegan delights. One of the key ingredients that makes our cookie dough safe to eat raw is Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer. This innovative blend of tapioca flour, psyllium husk, and baking soda creates a magic paste, resembling the consistency of applesauce when mixed with water. This stellar combination ensures that our cookie dough remains egg-free, eliminating any concerns about raw eggs and their associated risks.

  2. Baking Away Bacterial Worries: While our vegan cookie dough is already a safe haven for those avoiding raw eggs, we go the extra mile to eliminate another potential concern—raw flour. Raw all-purpose flour can harbor harmful bacteria like salmonella, posing a risk to those indulging in raw cookie dough. To counter this, we take a unique approach by baking our flour.

The process involves spreading our organic flour evenly on baking sheets and placing it in the oven at a carefully controlled temperature. This not only imparts a subtle, toasty flavor to the flour but also effectively kills any bacteria present. However, this transformative step doesn't end there; once baked, the flour forms into clumps that need to be sifted to restore its powdery consistency.

  1. The Sifting Finale: After the flour has been baked and transformed into clumps, our dedicated team meticulously sifts through every batch. This process ensures that any large clusters are broken down, resulting in a silky-smooth, powdery texture. The sifted flour is then integrated seamlessly into our cookie dough, guaranteeing a safe and delightful raw eating experience for our customers.

Chocolate and the Chip's commitment to crafting safe-to-eat raw vegan cookie dough is a testament to our dedication to quality and innovation. From the vegan alchemy of Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer to the meticulous baking and sifting of flour, every step in our process is designed with your safety and enjoyment in mind.
