Tried It - Chichpea Cookie Dough

For weeks I have been wanting to try out a recipe that I found for mock cookie dough on Pinterest. Why was I so excited about trying this? Maybe it's because I have a rampant sweet tooth. Or maybe (just maybe) it's because I managed to eat a whole batch of raw cookie dough while writing a paper last week...

Whatever the reason may be, I was intrigued by the idea of a guilt-free, healthier study snack. The recipe (adapted from ) is quite simple.

1 Can  Chickpeas (strained, patted dry, with the skins removed)
1/4 Cup Smooth Peanut Butter (add more to taste)
2 to 3 Tbs. Honey (or Agave)
Chocolate Chips

1. Blend together chickpeas, peanut butter, and honey until smooth.
2. Scrape down the sides of the blender and mix with a fork to insure that all ingredients are incorporated.
3. Add chocolate chips.
4. Refrigerate until you are ready to eat.
5. Enjoy!

Here is an approximate nutrition breakdown per serving.
