I know what you’re thinking: can a chickpea cookie dough really be good? Well here is the answer: heck yes! especially if you’re a texture person, this is perfect. I like it because it is versatile and you can basically add anything to this mix. Also the chickpeas are an excellent source of fiber and protein. win win win.
Chickpea Cookie Dough
(adapted from: here)
1 1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained and rinsed very well)
1/8 tsp plus 1/16 tsp salt
tiny bit over 1/8 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup peanut butter (I used TJ unsalted crunchy)
up to 1/4 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)
sweetener of choice (I used honey and sweetened until I liked the taste, about 3 T -could have been sweeter though, but the dark chocolate chips balanced out the sweetness nicely)
1/3 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
2 to 3 tbsp oats
1. Rinse the chickpeas and then add everything, minus the chocolate chips, in the food processor and process until smooth.
2. Add chocolate chips.
