Hello my beautiful friends!
Get ready to drool because I have a new recipe for you that’s going to blow. your. mind. Please give a warm welcome to vegan chickpea cookie dough bites! I can’t get over how incredible these are.
If you’re a cookie dough lover but want a healthier version, this is the recipe for you! Not only are these vegan chickpea cookie dough bites healthy, they are oil-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and 100% plant-based.
If you’re a religious HealthyGirl Kitchen follower, you’d know that all of my recipes are SUPER SIMPLE. I am all about easy, quick, no-fuss recipes whether its savory or sweet.
For these bites, you will blend all of the ingredients in a food processor then fold in the chocolate chips – how simple is that?! You don’t even need to bake them in the oven, they actually will set in the fridge.
I can’t get over how much these actually taste like real cookie dough.
Roll these little guys into balls…I like to make mine about 1-inch around but feel free to make them as big or as small as you desire.
Garnish the outside of the bits with sea salt and extra chocolate chips for that EXTRA sweetness and a hint of saltiness. I love a little salty touch with my desserts – who’s with me?!
Can we also talk about how they are made with chickpeas? You’d never know they had legumes in them but it sure adds fiber, protein and a ton of nutrients!
