Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Posted on Posted in Healthy Recipes, Recipes

It may sound weird but it is so delicious – you would never guess that it is made from chickpeas, and is always a big hit when I share with friends.

This cookie dough is safe to eat raw because it doesn’t contain eggs.

You can eat this straight from the bowl with a spoon, or make cookie dough balls from it, and store in the fridge. Personally, I scoop it into small containers about 2 tablespoons is plenty for a serving – my favorites are either with my cup of tea in the morning or for an energy boost in the afternoon I pair it with an apple.

Chocolate Chip-Chickpea Cookie Dough (makes 4 servings)

INGREDIENTS

1 15-oz can of low sodium chickpeas, rinsed well and patted very dry

⅓ cup natural almond or peanut butter (smooth, not crunchy)

¼ cup organic maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp salt (I omit the salt)

⅓ cup vegan chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate chips)

INSTRUCTIONS

1 Place the first 5 ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender and blend until well-mixed.

2 Scrape into a bowl, and stir in the chocolate chips (option: melt the chips and stir in).

This will keep 3-4 days in the refrigerator, IF it lasts that long!
