Vegan Cookiedough Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Vegan Cookiedough Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Buttercream frosting is a type of frosting that is thick and fluffy. It’s used as filling and topping on big layer cakes. Dairy free chocolate chip cookie dough Frosting is very simple to make. Keep scrolling for this Vegan Cookiedough Buttercream Frosting Recipe.

Cookie dough frosting is great for piping and cupcakes as well. This particular one would be difficult to use for piling due to the chocolate chips. That would be easily fixed by replacing with crushed chocolate flakes.

Almond butter is tasty and nutritious in this Dairy free chocolate chip cookie dough. The Almonds are ground into a paste to make a nut butter. Almond butter is high in mono saturated fats, calcium, potassium, iron and manganese. It makes the best cookie dough flavor for this vegan frosting.

It is considered a good source of riboflavin, phosphorous, and copper, and an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber. Also Almond butter provides dietary protein.

I wasn’t sure if it would be vegan or not. However after researching online I found they do in fact make vegan butter flavored extract! So thankfully there is vegan butter extract for vegan buttercream frosting.

Links to vegan butter extract brands included below recipe. You could also replace With vanilla extract if that’s easier.
