A few months ago, we shared a sample recipe for Vegan Pizza Dough Garlic Rolls from the new edition of Vegan Junk Food by Lane Gold. And with the big games ahead, we thought another fun, shareable recipe from her cookbook was in order. Lane agreed, and gave permissions for us to post this scrumptious Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookie Dough Dip recipe.
Chocolate Chip Vegan Cookie Dough Dip for a Sweet Celebration
Although Vegan Junk Food isn’t a gluten-free cookbook, this vegan cookie dough dip is naturally gluten-free and grain-free. It’s deliciously sweet, creamy, and addictive. Some ideas for serving it include:
Graham Crackers – Regular or chocolate graham crackers are great, but keep an eye out for dairy. Some brands do contain a touch. Most brands contain a little honey, which could be a problem for strict vegans. But you can usually find an option or two without. If you can’t locate some, then make your own! These Vegan Chocolate Graham Crackers are scrumptious and these Grain-Free Graham Crackers are a fun option.
Fresh Fruit – Strawberries are a natural companion to this vegan cookie dough dip. But you might also like orange segments, apple slices, stone fruit wedges (in warmer seasons), or grapes for dunking.
Cookies – Because, why not? Really any type of crispy dairy-free cookie will do. But I love buying assorted Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies to serve with cookie dough dip. They’re gluten-free, top food allergy-friendly, and vegan (but one flavor contains honey). Plus, they have Minis!
Pretzels – Sweet and salty fans will love the combination of pretzels and this chocolate chips vegan cookie dough dip. I like the pretzel crisps for more surface area to hold the dip.
Brownie Crisps – While we’re talking crisps, we can’t forget about brownie versions. Not all are dairy-free, but brands like Trader Joe’s and Lucy’s are great options. They’re both vegan and gluten-free too.
