Chickpea Cookie Dough!?

You got it! Another deceptive yet nutritious and delicious dessert for you to whip up for your family tonight!  Similar to my black bean brownies, this recipe uses beans as its creamy base.

Chickpea Cookie Dough

recipe adapted from http://www.greenshakesandgiggles.com/
Ingredients:
1/2 cups chickpeas (1 can, drained)
heaping 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda (a bit more)
1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon pure Watkins vanilla extract
up to 1/4 cup nut butter
1 and 1/4 cup pitted dates, soaked
1/3 cup chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons oats
few drops of stevia
Milk or nondairy milk as needed to thin (a few T at the most)
Instructions:
In a bowl, cover the dates with 1/2 cup water.  Let this sit for several hours (the original recipe says 8 but you can get away with 2-3).  Add all ingredients (including the date water), except chocolate chips, to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes and then stir in chocolate chips.

Serve as a dessert dip (with apple slices, animal crackers, etc) or pudding, mix into oatmeal, stuff into cupcakes or top pancakes with it.  Remember it is a dessert so don’t eat all the batter at once :)   The taste is similiar to a cough flavored Larabar!

Untill next time…
look good, feel good, do good
