Chickpea Cookie Dough
This is probably one of my favourite recipes for a couple reasons ... it satisfies my sweet tooth, its made with ingredients I know and can pronounce, and it has peanut butter in it ... need I say more?
This recipe was inspired by a couple different ones I've come across on social media, but I've played around with them a bit and came up with one that comes out just the way I like it.
Not only does this make a kick-ass dessert, but chickpeas are packed with protein and fibre - making it both filling and satisfying. Chickpeas are a great alternate source of protein for those who don't eat meat, and the fibre helps keep your digestive tract happy.
Not much to it, but I promise its worth it!
1 Can of Chickpeas (aim for the low sodium ones)
1/2 Cup of All-Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup of Pure Maple Syrup
1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein
Dash of Vanilla Extract
Dash of Almond Milk
1/4 of Dark Chocolate Chips
• Drain and rinse chickpeas
• Add all ingredients into a food processor except for the chocolate chips, and BLEND
