Simple Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Adapted from: Chocolate-Covered Katie, May 2011
1 - 15 oz can chickpeas or garbanzo beans (about 1 1/2 cups, drained and rinsed)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract (I make my own using this recipe. Do it. You won't regret it.)
1/4 cup nut butter (I would use almond, but to avoid the nuts, I use sunflower seed butter.)
up to 1/4 cup coconut milk (You could also use almond milk.)
3 Tbsp pure maple syrup
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (I prefer at least 70% cacao.)
1. Place chickpeas, vanilla, nut butter, coconut milk, and maple syrup into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
2. Remove the cookie dough to a bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips and enjoy. You can also use the cookie dough as a dip for fresh fruit slices, like apples, for something different.
