An Easy & Delicious Vegan Cookie Dough Recipe

This peanut butter chocolate chip vegan cookie dough is a healthy, eggless, no bake vegan dessert to satisfy that sweet tooth! 

Sweets! Y’all. I feel like I’m still detoxing from all the Christmas Cookies I inhaled a couple weeks ago. Anyone else with me?

Sugar is seriously like a drug. Once you have a bit, you start craving it and you really do go through a “withdrawl” from it.

Today I’m replacing all those cookies with this healthy eggless Vegan Chickpea Cookie Dough.

Honestly, I’d heard about making cookie dough with chickpeas for a while. But I wasn’t so sure about it. I’ve made brownies with pumpkin, avocado, and black beans before but never cookie dough with chickpeas.

Guys.

It’s a game changer! I actually just bought two more cans of chickpeas today so I could make more to have this on hand at night. All I really need is like a spoonful or so and I’m satisfied.

Can You Taste the Chickpeas in this Vegan Cookie Dough?

Now before you get all judgy about the chickpeas, honestly you can’t taste them. The cookie dough definitely isn’t as sweet as normal, but you’re not making this to be hit with a “sugar coma.” You’re making it to satisfy that sweet tooth without all the sugar and calories! Right?

I highly recommend draining the chickpeas and placing them in a paper towel. Then, using another paper towel, gently rub the top of the chickpeas so some of the outer skins come off. Pick out the skins and toss them. It might seem tedious but it makes a huge difference in the texture so you don’t have as many skins in the cookie dough, you don’t need to get all of them just enough to make a difference. This process makes the cookie dough smoother.

Adding the chia seeds actually soaks up some of the liquid from the chickpeas and creates more of a true cookie dough texture.

I’m officially addicted to this stuff and so is Cason. My 5 year old was all about taking spoonfuls of this cookie dough for his after school snack and I don’t blame him. It’s delicious!

It has all my favorites, chocolate and peanut butter. What more do you need?

It’s sweet, healthy, takes 5 minutes to make in a blender, filled with protein and fiber. But most importantly is delicious!

Bon Appetit friends!

    Just made my first batch and it 100% satisfied my sweet tooth. I am feeling no guilt after eating about 3 tablespoons of it and will be going back for more,

    I did use about 1 tbsp more of maple syrup as it was a bit dry for my liking. Also, I had to work in batches as I used a small food processor which I do not recommend as it was too thick to handle it – next time I will use a larger one. Not a deal breaker, but a bit of a pain peeling outer shell of the chickpeas but all said and done this is an absolute keeper. Thanks for sharing.
