chickpea cookie dough dip 101

Now I’ll admit — the first time I heard of this concept, I thought it was crazy.  How on Earth would Chickpeas taste like Cookies?  Isn’t this, like, pureed dessert Hummus?” 

 

And while the latter is still kind of true…I’m okay with it. Because somehow the combination of sunbutter, chickpeas, vanilla, and honey totally masks the flavor of chickpeas, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips makes you think it’s the real thing. 

 

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this awesome healthy snack.

 

 
Chickpeas

I’m all about those canned chickpeas because you know, I’m lazy like that. No chickpeas? No problem? Cannellini beans are just as great! Be sure to rinse, drain & give em a good shake. 

 

Sunbutter

Yessss!! Sunflower seed butter >> peanut butter. Yea, I know… I’m obsessed with Sunbutter, but this is SOOO much better than peanut or almond butter versions. I’ve found them to be dry, chalky, and overpowering. Sunbutter on the other hand, adds the perfect amount of sweetness, while neutralizing any hint of beans. Plus it’s creamy and smooth 😍 

 

Vanilla Extract

Brings a natural sweetness to blend all the flavors. It brings you back to making homemade cookies -creaming butter, sugar, and vanilla getting to lick your fingers. Nothin better than sugar and butter… mmm mm good.

 

Honey

Feel free to use maple syrup instead for a vegan alternative!

 

Chocolate Chips

Chocolate chips really bring it home and make it taste even more like chocolate chip cookie dough. I kept it allergy friendly by using Enjoy Life mini-morsels, but you any chocolate chip will do.

 

instructions

Step 1: grab a food processor

step 2: process until smooth

 

No, but seriously.. its that easy.

 

Start rinsing and draining the chickpeas. Note: some recipes say to peel your chickpeas for a smoother dough. I’ve still gotten a rich, creamy texture without peeling (or adding flour) but you can always try! 

 

Put chickpeas, Sunbutter, vanilla and honey in a food processor.

 

 

And process until smooth! Told you it was that easy. You can fold in the chocolate chips or be a rebel and throw them in the food processor once your dough forms. 

 

 

Expert Tips

Sweeten to taste: I used 3 tablespoons of honey, but you can use more or less to taste.
 
 
Milk, no milk: if you want to use it for dipping, adding 1-2 tbsp of milk will loosen it up a bit. If you’re a savage with a spoon (like me) I’d say to keep as is!
 
 
Dippers: perfect for apple slices, graham crackers, pretzels, strawberries… you name it. It’s like dessert hummus but butter.
