Enjoy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies Dough Bites. A healthy alternative to cookie making. No added flour, nor oil, not even white sugar! Easy to make gluten free…
1 1/4 cups (400 grams) canned or cooked chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel. 200g chickpeas = 440g soaked chickpeas
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter (will not work with “Hydrogenated Peant Butter)
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (or Agave)
1 teaspoon baking powder*
Reserve until last
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips
*For grain-free baking powder, combine 1/2 Tablespoon Baking Soda and 1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar. Use 1 teaspoon in recipe; seal and save remaining ingredients, store in refrigerator and use up to 2 weeks.
Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and mix until smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re combined.
Add in the chocolate chips (stir it if you can), or pulse it once or twice.
Mixture will be very thick and sticky. Place a small amount of oil on hands, form dough 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 will not rise.
Bake for about 10 minutes. Yields about fourteen 1 1/2″ cookie dough balls.
