A healthy and edible vegan chickpea cookie dough. This delicious peanut butter chocolate cookie dough is a guilt-free and protein packed way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoy it by the spoonful!



  • 15 oz can Chickpeas (unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup Nut Butter (unsalted, I used peanut butter)
  • 5 Dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Mini Vegan Chocolate Chips


  1. Drain and thoroughly rinse chickpeas until water runs clear. Peel the chickpeas so that the cookie dough will have a smooth and creamy texture. The best way to do this is to add chickpeas to a large bowl of water then rub them between your hands. The peels will float to the top and the chickpeas will sink. Discard the peels then drain the chickpeas.
  2. Add the peeled chickpeas and all ingredients besides the chocolate chips to a blender or food processor. Blend/pulse until everything is broken down and you have a thick “doughy” texture.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the cookie dough and chocolate chips. Fold the chocolate chips in until the mixture is well combined. Enjoy!
