These Vegan chickpea cookie dough recipe are to die for. You can make them nut-free by omitting the almond butter ingredient. I have adapted them slightly from my previous post.
Who would have thought that chickpeas can be incorporated into a sweet dish? I usually use it in curries or add to salads, but blending them to make a cookie dough, is seriously delicious. Im intrigued as to what else I can come up with in terms of pulses in desserts! Watch this space.
For these vegan chickpea cookie dough mix, I ditched sugar and used half coconut sugar with some agave syrup. If you like a drier mixture, I would only use coconut sugar. I never use white sugar in my cooking as you already know if you have been following my recipes. ”Healthy gut, is a healthy mind”; that is my motto. This easy vegan cookie dough is loaded with protein and goodness.
Here goes. Get ready for some serious guilt-free indulging time.
To make around 12 small cookies.
Vegan Chickpea cookie dough
- 1 can of cooked chickpeas, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup of gluten-free oats
- 1/4 cup of coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup of agave syrup
- 2 TBS of almond butter
- 3 tablespoons melted dairy-free butter/coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
- 3/4 cup of raisons
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greaseproof with butter.
Process the chickpeas, coconut oil and vanilla in a large processor until relatively smooth.
Add in the almond butter, coconut sugar, flour, salt, baking soda and vinegar and blend until until a smooth batter is formed.
Add in the raisons and mix by hand.
Drop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto your tray and use wet fingers to gently flatten each mound (they won’t spread a lot on their own.)
- Bake until the tops begin to crack and the edges are dry to the touch, about 20 minutes or so.
Cool completely before serving or eat them warm (my favourite way).
