So it isn’t paleo, but it is still a HECK of a lot better for you than the traditional cookie dough. If you like cookie dough, then you’ll like this. Scott still wanted me to bake it, so maybe it’s a girl thing, but I don’t think he really got the whole just eating cookie dough concept. I thought everyone loved cookie dough! Anyway, I had never made a dessert before out of beans, avocado, yes, but beans no.
Anyway, this was inspired from a blog called Chocolate Covered Katie. She has some interesting and fun ideas. I can’t wait to try more of them for the kiddos!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 can chickpeas (15 oz, drained)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp nut butter (If you use peanut butter, you can taste it a little, so if you don’t want this, just sub for palm shortening or coconut or olive oil.)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 2/3 cup raw coconut palm sugar
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- 3 tbsp flax meal
Add all ingredients (except for chocolate chips) to a food processor, and blend until very smooth. Stir in the chocolate chips and enjoy!
Heather Holzworth - Landria,
That cookie dough is delicious – I gave some to Eric to try (he dodn’t know what the ingredients were) and he liked it too.
As you well know, me likey my beans! Thank you again for another healthy recipe. I can’t wait to try the chocolate pudding.
Angela - WOW, this is the greatest idea ever! I’m going to use less sugar next time since I think it was a bit sweet as is. Thanks!
landriav - Thanks Angela!! I can’t take credit as I used the idea from someone else but it is good, isn’t it? I love hearing what you thought about it. I think it helps to hear what others think so this will hopefully help someone. Thanks for posting!
AMY - Quick question…where can I find coconut sugar? I’ve looked at several organic food stores and co-ops but I can’t find it. Any suggestions?
landriav - Hey Amy! You can get it at Whole Foods or Amazon. Good luck! It’s great stuff!!
