CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH BALLS 🍪🍫 | vegan & GF
Are you one of those people that eats half of the dough while making cookies before even baking them?I’m with you! But today we are not making actual cookies but cookie dough that is supposed to be eaten raw.
These cookie dough balls really taste like cookie dough. And not even like a healthy version of it, it’s like the real thing. The taste of it somehow reminds me of coffee even though there’s no coffee in these. I think it’s the combination of the three ingredients that forms that flavour. Other than that, they taste a lot like chocolate chip cookies.
The main ingredient in these are chickpeas. But wait before you judge. It might sound weird to you, I was sceptical too before trying it. The other two ingredients in this cookie dough are dates and dark chocolate.
Dates are, as we all know, the world’s best natural sweetener. They work perfectly in all recipes and this one is no exception.
We all know chocolate is a huge friend of mine. If you scroll down my blog, every second recipe will include chocolate. I for a long time used to think something can’t be healthy if it includes chocolate. But I was so wrong! While yes, dark chocolate is still not the healthiest but it’s not the worst either, cacao on the other side is healthy. It’s the purest form of chocolate and is way less processed than actual chocolate.
Just one last note before we get to the recipe – do not try baking these cookies. This cookie dough is designed to be eaten raw, so don’t try changing it into baked cookies. There’s several other recipes for that out there.
