“Healthy homemade snacks when you're on the go”
Who doesn’t love cookie dough? Sometimes when we make cookies we make extra just so we can eat the mixture but shh, don’t tell anyone. We decided we wanted to make slightly healthier cookie dough balls and thought chickpeas would be the perfect ingredient.
These delicious cookie dough balls taste delicious hot out the oven, when they are all gooey with melted chocolate oozing out. Be warned, it’s hard to stop after eating just one! They also taste just as good once cooled. We would suggest serving them with some homemade ‘nice cream’ or even treat yourself to some proper ice cream as, after all, these cookie dough balls are healthy!
These homemade chickpea cookie dough balls could be the perfect snack between lectures at uni.
2 Cans of chickpeas
200g Peanut butter
5tbsp Honey or maple syrup
1tsp Baking powder
2 tsp Vanilla essence
150g 85% Dark chocolate
Pre heat the oven 180oc and line a baking tray with grease proof paper
Drain and rinse the chick peas
Dry the chickpeas well (there should be no liquid left on the chickpeas)
Blend all ingredients excluding the dark chocolate in a food processor (we would suggest taste testing before adding the chocolate to ensue the mixture is sweet enough and, if not, add some more honey/maple syrup)
Break the chocolate into small chunks and stir into the mixture
Take small handfuls of mixture and roll into a ball
Place on the lined baking tray
Cook in the oven for 11 minutes (they will be slightly soft when removed from the oven)
Take the cookie dough balls out the oven and enjoy!
