Who doesn't love cookie dough? This edible cookie dough is not only safe to eat, but it has chickpeas so you don't have a sugar spike.
Eat it by the spoonful or as a dip with apple slices, graham crackers or pretzels. It has a thick creamy texture just like classic cookie dough.
How to Make Chickpea Cookie Dough
In a food processor, mix drained and rinsed chickpeas (garbanzo beans), peanut butter, maple syrup, oat flour, vanilla extract, and salt. If you don't have oat flour, you can make it by grinding rolled oats in a food processor or Nutribullet with the milling blade.
Fold in dark chocolate baking chunks or chocolate chips.This healthy Chickpea Cookie Dough tastes sweet and rich, just like classic cookie dough. You would never know there's chickpeas in it! Click To Tweet

Can I Bake Chickpea Cookie Dough?
For this vegan cookie dough recipe I used my Chickpea Blondies recipe as inspiration. I omitted baking powder and added slightly more maple syrup. I also used dark chocolate baking chunks instead of chocolate chips.
If you want bars or cookies, you could use that recipe. I haven't made the blondies into cookies, but if I were to try it, I would bake them for 8-12 minutes.
How Long Does It Last?
This recipe will last up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight container.
Additions / Variations
- Almond butter, cashew butter, another nut butter or sunflower seed butter
- Roasted and salted peanuts, dried cranberries or raisins, and pumpkin seeds to make a trail mix cookie dough
- Almond flour or another flour - make sure to check first if the flour you use needs to be heat treated.
