Costco Shoppers Can't Get Enough Of This Vegan Cookie Dough

Costco has great news for vegans that still crave a classic cookie every once in a while. They are now selling Eat Pastry's popular vegan chocolate chip cookie dough. It tastes so good many people can't even tell it's vegan, and now you can purchase a 48-ounce tub for under six dollars at participating Costco locations. Not only is Eat Pastry dough completely vegan, with no dairy or egg products, it is also certified GMO-free, and contains no hydrogenated oils or artificial flavorings, per Eat Pastry.

The popular Instagram account @costcobuys posted about the Costco find, writing, "@eatpastry vegan chocolate chip cookie dough is dangerous! Baked or raw, this stuff is GOOD! I must confess I didn't realize this was vegan until after baking some...I couldn't even tell!" Their followers were also big fans of the delicious vegan treat. One person raved: "This is so delicious! One of my favs," and another chimed in mentioning they had already eaten half their tub of it.

This cookie dough tastes great both baked and raw

Because it contains no eggs, the chocolate chip cookie dough is also completely safe to consume raw, and in fact, many customers found it even tastier that way. Instagram user @sweetcatastr0fe commented on the post, "I personally prefer the taste of this raw vs the baked cookie," and @saltymomma agreed: "I love this stuff, I think it's better raw than cooked." However, while it may taste great straight from the tub, this dough also makes a scrumptious vegan cookie when baked in the oven for just ten minutes.

According to the brand, the dough simply needs to be scooped, placed on a lined baking sheet, and set in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In just eight to ten minutes, the cookies will be warm, soft, and ready to be enjoyed. You can also add nuts, raisins, or even additional chocolate chunks for an extra-decadent treat. On their own, one cookie contains 60 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and only 4 grams of sugar, per Eat Pastry's website.

So if you're a committed vegan, trying to cut back on animal products, or simply want to give something new a try, this vegan cookie dough is worth the buy. No matter what your dietary preferences are, both the raw dough and the freshly baked cookies are a hit with just about every palate.
