Chickpea Cookie Dough Bites

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter*
  • 1.5 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey**
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup (or more) mini chocolate chips.

Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine chickpeas, natural peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Blend together using a immersion/hand blender. Gradually add in honey until a smooth cookie dough consistency is formed.
  2. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Refrigerate and serve cold. Enjoy!

Notes:
*If you don’t have a immersion/hand blender, feel free to just mash by hand with a potato masher. If you are going to mix by hand, make sure to remove the chickpea skins before you begin.
**You may or may not need a little bit more or less honey depending on the consistency of your honey and peanut butter. You can also swap honey for agave or maple syrup. If you find that the dough is not sweet enough, feel free to add in more brown sugar.
