Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bites

Peanut-Butter-Cookie-Dough-Bites-0208

Here’s another ‘quick bites of energy’ recipe. I loved having these around in the early days of Callan being here. They were healthy enough to eat at any time but they also had a bit of chocolate that worked for my sweet-tooth cravings.

We’ve been cooking with chickpeas a lot lately and I’m finding new ways to incorporate them into desserts. While I wouldn’t say these truly taste like peanut butter cookie dough, they’re delicious.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ¼ C canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained (almost an entire can)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ C + 2 Tbls peanut butter
  • ¼ C honey
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ C chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. You may have to stop the food processor and scrape the sides a few times to make sure everything is incorporated.
  3. Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few times.
  4. With wet hands, form into 1 1/2″ balls.
  5. Place onto a Silpat or a piece of parchment paper.
  6. Press down on cookies with fork a criss-cross pattern.
  7. Bake for 10 min.

NOTES
Approximately 20 cookies.

Very, very slightly adapted from Texanerin. For my first grain-free attempt, I figured it best not to mess with the recipe. And like she says, don’t skip the chocolate!
