Who doesn't like cookie dough? As delicious as it is, it’s filled with sugar, processed ingredients, and gluten -putting some of us at risk of getting a bad tummy (especially those with sensitive digestive systems).
Rather then living a life without cookie dough, here's a delicious, healthy, and safe alternative for you to try. These “raw” cookie dough balls are soft, tasty, indulgent and … made with chickpeas!
They are packed full of protein and iron-rich legumes and natural sweeteners in the form of organic honey and coconut sugar. Chances are you’ll want to eat the entire batch after taking your first bite!
450g (16 ounces) cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons raw organic honey
1 tablespoon coconut sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons raw organic almond butter
2 teaspoons vanilla powder
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups vegan regular/dark chocolate chips
1. Combine chickpeas, honey, sugar, baking soda, almond butter, vanilla, and a pinch of salt in a food processor and process until smooth.
2. Remove to a bowl and stir in half a cup of the chocolate chips. Form into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Freeze until solid.
3. In a double boiler, melt remaining cup of chocolate chips. Dip the balls into the chocolate until covered, then place back on parchment-paper lined baking sheet. Freeze until chocolate has hardened, then store at room temperature.
