Recipe: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

This recipe comes straight from Mama Earth Organics on Facebook. These cookie dough bites are damn delicious and I literally eat the batter as I'm making them....and then...the cookies once they're baked. I've attempted to bake them for longer than 10 minutes, but they just don't taste as good. You want them to be moist and literally like a cookie dough texture. 

1 1/4 cups canned* chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter (can use PB2 from gym to make healthier, check your labels)
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave would be amazing too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder**
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips

* My can was a 400 gram can, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons

** If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.




Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C.

Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re combined.

Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.

With wet hands (you must wet hands or it'll be a disaster which you can eat either way lol), form into 1 1/2″ balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don’t do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Yields about fourteen 1 1/2″ cookie dough balls.

*** Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter (preferably organic).

NOM, NOM, NOM!!! I love how the peanut butter pretty much masks the taste of the chick peas, I doubt kids would be able to tell the difference. Let me know if you try these and any substitutions that you make.
