I know what you might be thinking, “Cookie dough made from chickpeas? No thanks! I’ll stick to eating raw cookie dough”. That’s what I thought too before I tried it. But trust me when I say it tastes exactly like traditional edible cookie dough, maybe even better. The key is to mash the chickpeas until there aren’t any chunks left. If you leave pieces of chickpeas in the dough, it will ruin the texture. And who wants chickpea pieces in their cookie dough? The only chunks we want are chocolate chunks.
This edible cookie dough is vegan, gluten free and is the perfect snack for both kids and adults! The best part? It’s packed with protein and fibre, making it the ultimate snack to satisfy your sweet cravings. Plus, it is super versatile so feel free to get creative with your mix-ins.
