Chickpea cookie dough bites

Cookie dough, but it's healthy? Yep. We play to win the game.

Makes about 16 balls.

Ingredients

One 400g can chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and pat dry

1/3 cup oat flour

1/4 cup peanut butter

3 tablespoons 100% maple syrup, plus more as desired

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/3 cup dairy-free chocolate chips

Note: If you don’t have oat flour, place 1/2 cup rolled oats in a blender or food processor and process until a fine flour forms.

Method

  1. Place the chickpeas, oat flour, peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in the base of a food processor.

  2. Process until a dough forms. Taste, adding in more maple syrup as desired.

  3. Fold in the chocolate chips, then pulse until just combined and the chips are incorporated.

  4. Roll into balls and place on a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. Store in the fridge to harden for at least 15 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
