Eating raw cookie dough, who doesn’t love it? There’s something about it that I’ve always loved more than actual cookies and i know I’m not alone in feeling that way!
When you hear the word chickpea the last thing people think about is a delicious snack or dessert. Instead many think of falafel or lentil soup and wonder how that could ever taste like a sweet dish or dessert!
But chickpeas are so versatile and can be used to make so many things and taste so extremely different depending on how you make the food! My advice is to not knock it till you try it…. you might just like it! And if you don’t, well you can make it into cookies if you add some flour!
How to make vegan chickpea cookie dough?
1 can chickpeas minus the aquafaba
c.a 1-1,5dl (100-150ml)oatmilk (begin with a little (c.a 25-50ml) and add more if necessary)
Optional; 2-3tbsp oatmeal (more if necessary)
sweetener – (sugar/agave/stevia/stevia drops. I think adding flavoured stevia drops such as toffee or caramel could be amazing in this!)
1-2 tbsp peanut butter. (This can be omitted but i personally think it adds a bit of texture and more taste as well as healthy fats!)
Pinch of salt
First rinse the chickpeas of the aquafaba (save that for later use such as in pancakes, making meringues or brownies!). Put everything (apart from the chocolate chips) into a processor, starting with only a little oat milk and adding more if necessary, and mix. Add more oatmeal or milk if the texture is too lose or too thick. Also add sweetener to your desired taste.
When the mix is done it should be creamy and thick just like regular cookie dough. Scoop it out into a bowl and add the chocolate chips! Then eat and enjoy 🙂
What i love about this recipe is that it is filling, can be eaten as a snack as well as being very healthy. It has protein, healthy fats, fiber and slow carbohydrates as well as that little sweet touch from chocolate chips – but you can of course use cacao nibs or seeds or nuts or even raisins if you want something else! If you want to know more about the positives and nutrition information about chickpeas check out THIS post (scroll down in the post!)
So this can be eaten as a snack, dessert or even for breakfast – or you can make it into small balls and dip into chocolate, or make into cookies etc
Of course you can also make “normal” vegan cookie dough using flour, sugar, vegan margarine, brown sugar (because that’s delicious as well!)…. but let’s be honest, when you eat this mix you don’t have to worry about bacteria from flour and you wont get a sugar kick that lasts 5 minutes and then you get hungry again 30 minutes later XD
The original and “famous” recipe is from chocolate covered Katie! I didn’t look or follow her recipe when i made my cookie dough!
