Easy, Edible Cookie Dough (vegan option)

Easy, Healthy, and Edible Cookie Dough — On Repeat.

A delicious, creamy, nourishing treat! Made with chickpeas (plant-based protein, high-fiber, yay!), dates (natural sugar from whole fruit), creamy almond butter (healthy fats), honey for some sweetness (or pure maple syrup for a vegan option), and add some dark chocolate chips folded in. Simple and delectable!


Eat this by the spoonful, roll into bite-sized balls, whatever you do it’s likely to be gone, FAST! And yes, this even is man-approved (with the initial comments: “there’s no way this tastes like real cookie dough” turned into “oh my god that’s freaking good!”) I can honestly say this one is a crowd-pleaser. Add a dash of cinnamon, vanilla extract, and sea salt and you’re good to go!
