How do I store these 7 ingredient chocolate chip cookies?

I like to store these cookies in a sealed container on the counter for 4-5 days. Or you can freeze them for long term storage!

Can I eat the cookie dough?

This recipe is vegan and made without regular flour, so it is perfectly fine to eat the dough. Instead of baking the dough, I will sometimes make edible cookies dough bites! Instructions for my edible cookie dough bites can be found here.
