You are probably thinking the same thing I thought: there is no way chickpeas can really taste like cookie dough. Well, believe it or not, not only does this taste like cookie dough, it tastes like really good cookie dough. I don't even like cookie dough that much, but I actually get addicted to this! I eat so much more of it than I should haha, but at least it's a healthier alternative to actual cookie dough! In theme with my last post, I made this hoping for a quick, healthy, filling, and delicious snack before yoga, and it is all of the above:) Still skeptical?? You just gotta go for it and see for yourself!

chickpea cookie dough

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup peanut butter
5 tablespoons oats
2 tablespoons agave syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Combine the cooked chickpeas, peanut butter, oats, agave, vanilla, ground flaxseed, and salt in a food processor. Process until even in consistency. You can either stir in the chocolate chips with a spoon if you like more chunky bites, or, if you like smaller pieces of chocolate mixed throughout like me, you can add the chocolate chips to your food processor and pulse until it reaches your desired consistency. Store in the fridge if you plan on eating it in the next week, or you can freeze it serving size portions for easy snacking later! Just roll into balls (of your desired size), place on a cookie sheet in the freezer for a couple hours until frozen (this is just so they don't all stick together as they freeze!), then transfer to a container or plastic bag for storing in your freezer, and then take out a serving at a time to let thaw overnight before enjoying the next day! It's soooooo good! I can't stop eating it! I opt for the freezer method so I don't eat it all in one sitting:)
