I made these Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookie Dough balls awhile ago and I feel bad that I haven’t shared them until now! But, it has been so, so hot outside the last couple days and it pretty much feels like summer. Plus, it’s the Long Weekend!
Therefore – these chocolate chip chickpea cookie dough balls are a must – especially when you freeze them. They’re like a cookie dough ice-cream ball.
If you’re turned off by the fact that the main ingredient is chickpeas, don’t be! You cannot tell the difference between these and real-deal cookie dough. You probably have all the ingredients on hand too – which makes it even easier to make.
I had seen these little chickpea cookie dough balls on instagram and pinterest a few times, but hadn’t tried them yet. The recipe I followed was this one, but there are lots of others here, here, and here. They’re all similar – and good!
After the first time making these, I made them immediately again – and again. They’re that good. You can keep them in the fridge for a couple days (if they last that long) or freeze them to keep longer. If they’re frozen, I suggest taking them out for a few minutes before serving.
*If you don’t have a food processor, I did try and make these in a high-powered blender. You just need to add a little almond milk to get the dough moving, and if you have a tamper stick for your blender it comes in handy to get the dough moving around.
