Heat-treat the flour. To do this important step, place 1 cup of flour in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for two minutes.

Stir the flour and check the temperature using a kitchen or meat thermometer. You want the temp of the flour to be at least 175 degrees F. Continue to microwave until the flour reaches that temperature.

Heat-treated flour gets a bit chunky, so use a spoon to break it up. Pour all the flour into a strainer and sift it into a new bowl. Use a spoon to help push it through. Any hard pieces that look like rice left in the strainer you can throw in the garbage.

Add the vanilla, flour, oats, salt, and milk to the mixture and beat just until mixed.

Do I have to heat-treat the flour?

Yes, I cannot stress this enough as this step is one of the main reasons that this raw cookie dough recipe is safe to eat. It is important to heat treat the raw flour to cook bacteria like E. Coli out of raw flour. This (plus no raw eggs in the batter) makes the cookie dough safe to eat raw.

Why should I use sprinkles instead of nonpareils?

Most varieties of rainbow sprinkles work in this recipe, but nonpareils (the little round balls) are not recommended as their color tends to bleed into the batter.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (115 grams) unsalted butter, softened (almost melted)
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup (200 grams) light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup (50 grams) granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (150 grams) heat-treated all-purpose flour (directions below)*
  • 1 cup (90 grams) quick cooking oats
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup candy coated chocolate
  • ½ cup mini sandwich cookies
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles (not nonpareils)**

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, beat together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until well mixed (about 2 to 3 minutes).
  2. Heat-Treated Flour: Place 1 cup all-purpose flour in a large microwave safe bowl and cook on high in microwave for 2 minutes. Remove bowl from microwave, stir flour and check temperature using a kitchen thermometer (like a meat thermometer). Temperature of flour should be 175 degrees F or higher.

There will be a few hardened pieces (looks like rice) left in the strainer – throw those pieces away.  
  3. Add vanilla, flour, oats, salt and milk to the butter mixture and beat just until mixed.
  4. Beat in chocolate chips, candy coated chocolate, mini sandwich cookies and sprinkles just until combined.
  5. Store in sealed container in fridge for up to one week.
