This is the GREATEST cookie dough recipe ever! We love to eat it in a little bowl, warmed up slightly in the microwave:) So delish. 

  • 1 can chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave and maple syrup work too!) 
  • 1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips
- Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they're combined.
- Put in the chocolate chips and stir. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.

- Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter.
- If you'd like to bake them, just add 1 tsp of baking powder!

Hi. Crazy question; do you have any idea what would be a good pb substitute? It sounds wonderful, we just have to avoid peanuts, and possibly almonds?

I think it would work with any nut butter, but I've never really used any except peanut butter so I'm not sure. If you try it let us know how it works!

We used almond butter and cinnamon instead of c chips. They are reminiscent of snickerdoodles. Thanks for the idea.
