Chickpea cookie dough inspired by healthy cookie dough dip by Chocolate Covered Katie.
For a cookie lover, this recipe is chock-full of protein, and is a healthier alternative to eating regular cookie dough, all while tasting similar to the real thing.
- 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained and rinsed well)
- 1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
- Just over 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup nut butter of choice
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup chocolate chips or to personal liking
- 2 to 3 tbsp oats
Use a food processor to mix all of the ingredients together except for the chocolate chips. After the ingredients are well blended, mix in the chocolate chips with a spatula. You can serve it immediately, refrigerate it or freeze it. This cookie dough goes well with graham crackers or with fruit dipped in it. Another alternative is to freeze the cookie dough into balls and then dip them in melted chocolate for added decadence. Enjoy!
