When I learned that there was a new "edible cookie dough shop" opening at our local mall, I cringed. Then, I did what I usually do and got my butt in the kitchen to make a better version of it.
Essentially, we're eating dessert hummus - which is totally fine with me. Nothing scares me off anymore. Black bean brownies, cauliflower alfredo sauce, making cheese from potatoes and carrots - once you start using ingredients in alternative ways, it becomes a lot less weird when you see chickpeas as the base for cookie dough!
So rather than adding tahini, garlic, and lemon juice, we're adding maple, vanilla, and nuts to make this creamy delicious cookie dough. Then we fold in a few chocolate chips, and everyone has a decently healthy snack that feels like a treat.
No flours, no processed sugars, eggs or dairy. Grab a spoon and dig in!
