We all know that cookies are delicious, but sometimes the best part of baking cookies is eating the cookie dough itself. If you share this love of mine, satisfy your sweet tooth with this guilt free cookie dough dip – it’s sweet, creamy and quite a treat. Not to mention being completely healthy. Healthy? Of course, it may be hard to believe but the main ingredient used to create this dreamy treat is chickpeas – which are high in nutritional value and provide a great source of protein, iron, fibre and antioxidants. Just throw in some nut butter, coconut sugar, Himalayan salt and vanilla flavoring along with a handful of chocolate chips and you’ll have something amazing on your hands. 100% natural, 100% good for you. Go ahead and eat the whole bowl if you want, I know I am.

Egg-Free Cookie Dough (It's Okay to Lick the Bowl!) [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


1 small bowl


  • 1 can of chickpeas (drained)
  •  1/2 cup of almond butter
  •  1/4 cup of coconut sugar
  •  1 tsp vanilla essence
  •  A pinch of Himalayan salt
  •  A handful of dark chocolate chips


  1. Drain the can of chickpeas and add them into a food processor along with the almond butter, coconut sugar and flavorings. Process until completely smooth. Remove from the food processor and place into a bowl. Add in the dark chocolate chips and stir well.

This was good. I'm not a fan of chunks of chocolate so I used mini chips. Should've used the chunks. Will make again

Stacey - Looks interesting! I tried to go to your Wordpress blog, but the link is broken? I was interested in reading more. Thanks!

I added a bit more salt, and used brown sugar & cinnamon for richer flavor. Overall, it totally satisfies my cookie dough cravings. Thanks!

So, this is not meant to be cooked? Just chow upon the dough-y goodness??

This recipe was blatantly ripped off of Chocolate Covered Katie\'s blog (On her post from 2011). No shame. Wow. http://chocolatecoveredkatie.com/2011/05/23/want-to-eat-an-entire-bowl-of-cookie-dough/

Sorry, but the recipes are entirely different as far as I can see.

I love that blog, but there are some considerable differences. This one doesn\'t have milk, oats, or baking soda, and the ratios are different. Katie\'s recipe isn\'t the only chickpea based one that I\'ve seen, so there\'s really no way to tell who actually came up with it "first". And it\'s likely that a lot of people have thought of it themselves since chickpeas are a common ingredient.

Ahhhmazing! Seriously! Just try it! I actually just dumped all the ingredients into a 2-cup glass measuring cup and used my hand-held immersion blender for easy clean-up. Thrilled with this recipe and cant wait to share it with my kids. It makes tons and is fairly rich so one big ol spoonful is enough and leaves plenty to sneak for the next couple of days. Try this people!
