THE HEALTHY TREAT WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF: CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH

THE HEALTHY TREAT WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF: CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH

Childhood me ate cookie dough all the time. This was utterly delicious but doesn’t make you feel great. Nowadays, while adult me still loves dough, I have learned to eat in a way that feels better for my body; which doesn’t involve raw eggs and refined sugar. While I will never give up cookie dough, I’ve found a solution to satisfy my cravings that makes me feel alright and still indulge. Introducing: chickpea cookie dough.

Okay, I know what you might be thinking: “That sounds incredibly weird and disgusting, what the heck are you talking about.” But hear me out. Chickpeas are actually quite mild in flavour, and bind everything together like eggs otherwise would. Peanut butter masks any chickpea-y flavour, and dark chocolate chips add that classic cookie dough touch. While it doesn’t taste exactly like cookie dough, it’s a pretty darn good alternative.

Read on for this egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free cookie dough recipe.
