Chickpea Cookie Dough

Chickpea Cookie Dough

The first time I heard the words “chickpea” and “cookie” in the same sentence, I was utterly confused. But when I tried chickpea cookie dough for the first time, I was totally impressed. From sweet to savory – what can’t chickpeas do?

This 5-minute recipe blends together wholesome ingredients and chocolate for a healthy-ish snack that’s surprisingly yummy. Tasting is believing!

The flavor of chickpea cookie dough should not be directly compared to traditional cookie dough. It’s a little more “mild” and slightly less sweet. However, the chickpea-based version is still a fun snack filled with plant-protein. Plus, it stars a little indulgent twist!

Enjoy by the spoonful or as a dip. It’s delicious with apples, strawberries, pretzels, and more.
