One of the things that’s been hardest to live without (for me at least) is cookie dough … especially living without Ben&Jerry’s cookie dough ice cream has made my movie nights and sad days on the soda curled up with ice cream far less comforting.

It has the right look, texture and flavours of real cookie dough, but somehow it’s actually healthy and full of nutrients.

Can I use something other than almond butter for this vegan edible chickpea cookie dough recipe?

The answer is yes. You can use any type of nut butter for this recipe. Almond butter is my personal favourite, but peanut butter works just as well and adds that delicious peanut flavour we all adore. Cashew butter also works really well and adds a buttery deliciousness to the texture.

Instructions

  • Drain the chickpeas and rinse them well. Pat the chickpeas dry with a clean towel or paper towel and put the chickpeas in a closed container. Shake the container roughly to shake any skins off. 
  • Next, peel any loose skins of the chickpeas if you can (this helps the texture become more creamy. If you don’t mind a more gritty cookie dough, you can just leave the skins on).
  • Next, add the chickpeas, almond butter, syrup, salt, coconut oil, almond flour and vanilla extract to your blender and blend until the cookie dough is smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides a few times to make sure everything is blended evenly. 
  • Pour the cookie dough mixture into a bowl and add the dark chocolate chips. Fold in the chocolate gently and serve. 

Notes

This chickpea cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.This cookie dough recipe works best when you’re using canned pre-cooked chickpeas. If you cook your own chickpeas I recommend cooking them for 30 minutes longer than normal or until the chickpeas are very soft and easy to mash. Hard chickpeas don’t work well in this recipe.
