Grain-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Grain-free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Ingredients

  • 1¼ cups canned chickpeas, rinsed; patted dry
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter or almond butter - room temperature
  • ¼ cup honey, agave or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine all ingredients, except for chocolate chips, in a food processor; process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape sides; scrape top to get little chunks of chickpeas; process again until combined.
  2. Add chocolate chips; stir if you can or pulse it once or twice. Mixture will be very thick and sticky.
  3. With wet hands, form into 1½" balls. Place onto parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don't do much rising.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes. Dough balls will still be very soft when you take them out of oven. They will not set like normal cookies.
  5. Store in an airtight container at room temperature (or fridge) for up to 1 week.
