Healthy Cookie Dough

Are you a fan of cookie dough? Ever attempt to make a batch of cookies but their gone before they make it in the oven.... Ya I feel ya. But I have a healthy cookie dough you can feel good about eating! It's the classic chickpea cookie dough! Yes chickpeas. You heard me right. Your thinking "eww" chickpeas are for hummus...yes. But they also make amazing cookie dough! You can't even tasted the chickpeas! It literally tastes just like cookie dough...creamy, smooth, full of chocolate chips, it will defines satisfy a sweet tooth. And since it's vegan, you don't have to worry about eating raw eggs like normal cookie dough! It's so good you'll want to eat the whole jar! 

Healthy Chickpea Cookie Dough
1 can chickpeas, rinsed
3-4 Tbs. natural peanut butter
1 Tbs. ground flaxseed (or oats)
2 Tbs. Natural sweetner of choice (I used 1 Tbs. Honey and 1 Tbs. Organic coconut sugar)
1/4 cup almond milk 
1 Tbs. Vanilla extract 
Dash of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips*
*I used Enjoy Life brand, which is a vegan chocolate brand. I mixed the mini chips and mega chunks. I also threw in some cacao nibs (raw chocolate), for more chips without extra sugar.

Serve with fruit, on oatmeal, spread on rice cakes or right out of the jar! ;)
