I think we all are a little guilty when it comes to eating the raw cookie dough every time you make a batch of cookies. I know myself is included in that. It’s just so good, and so hard to resist. Well, what if I told you that this recipe is edible raw cookie dough that you can eat, and isn’t bad for you! Yup, that’s right.
The amazing thing about these bars is that they taste just like cookie dough! They are eggless, dairy-free gluten-free, grain-free and vegan! You won’t even believe that they are made from chickpeas. Just trust me with this, you won’t even taste them.
Since they are made with chickpeas, another great thing about this edible cookie dough is that they are high in protein! What a win win!!
Ingredients needed to make vegan cookie dough bars
Chickpeas– yes, you read that right. Chickpeas are the based for this delicious dish. With just a little sweetener, you won’t even believe that is what these are made from.
Almond flour– a great grain-free alternative. Almond flour is used to made these treats gluten-free
Almond butter– almond butter is one of my favorite nut butters to use in recipes since it is such a great nut and wildly accepted by most. However, you can simple swap out the almonds and use your favorite nut butter instead.
Date syrup– if you are used to my baked treats you know that I usually bake with date syrup. Why? because it’s an all natural sweetener that is lower in calorie than most. It is also vegan and plant based. If you don’t have date syrup, you can use honey, agave, or maple syrup.
Chocolate chips– I like to use dairy-free. My favorite brand is Lily’s Sweets, they are sweetened with Stevia so it is a no sugar added chocolate. But you can use your favorite chocolate chip brand and it will work the same.
