Description

Our delicious Chocolate-Peanut Butter Chickpea Cookie Dough Balls are a portable, protein-packed energy cookie that will give you a boost when you’re on the go.


Ingredients

115 ounce can chickpeas

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup 0ld fashioned rolled oats

1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


Instructions

  1. Empty the can of chickpeas into a colander.  Rinse with water, and with the water running, rub the chickpeas with your fingers, so the skins start to loosen
  2. Drain the chickpeas really well. Remove and discard as many skins as possible and dry them using paper towels (this step will insure a smoother chickpea cookie dough, but you can skip it if you’d like)
  3.  Place the chickpeas, peanut butter, brown sugar and vanilla in the food processor and pulse 5-6 times.  Add the oats and process until the ingredients come together to form a dough. Transfer it to a bowl, add the mini chocolate chips and mix well
  4. Working with approximately 2 teaspoons at a time, form 30 balls (we like using an ice cream scoop to make them easier and faster to roll)
