jelly bellies and nutty butties…

30 degrees Celcius + blue skies + running in a national park + jellyfish + starfish + wallabies + all-day breakfast on a dock + sunsets + chickpea cookie dough = an excellent weekend.

Wait… Chickpeas? Yup. Cookie dough? Yup. Delicious? Yup.

But first…

Done and done.

Chickpea Cookie dough – Nutty Butties

Inspired by this recipe

1 can of chickpeas

1/3-1/4 c. maple syrup

1/4 c. nut butter

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/4 c. dark chocolate chips or chunks

Optional mix ins:

Chopped nuts

Dried fruit

Shredded coconut

Drain and rinse the chickpeas. I tried my best to peel most of mine as well, but this is optional. Peeling those peas will increase the smoothness of the dough, and decrease farts. Not kidding. My mother LOVES that tidbit of information.

So blend the chickpeas, maple syrup, nut butter and vanilla until reallllllll smooth. Stir in the chocolate and any other extras and your done.

I enjoy it chilled, with some banana on top.

This might be the kind of the recipe that you definitely have to try to believe how yummy it is. But for real… if you didn’t know there were chickpeas in it, you would never pick it. My boyfriend didn’t… and then he felt deceived after I told him. However, he continued eating it straight from the mixing bowl, with a spoon. haha.

Go make this. I dare you!
