So what makes this clean eating cookie dough so healthy? the fact that I’m using chickpeas of course! And why exactly am I using chickpeas in a dessert recipe I hear you ask, well it just works! You’ll just have to trust me on this one.
Chickpeas are a great source of protein and can be used in recipes in the place of flour/grains. This makes it a great option for those of you who are avoiding wheat/gluten.
This recipe is Vegan, dairy free, gluten free and sugar free! It’s high in protein which makes it ideal as a post workout snack, or just a guilt free dessert 😉
