A Holiday Treat: Gift It Or Keep It For Yourself

Good morning,

I hope your week is off to a great start! I’ve got an amazing recipe for you today that will make it even better! 🙂

Have you checked out the edible cookie dough trend yet?

Some of the recipes and mixes out there are DELICIOUS! That said, some recipes may also contain some questionable ingredients, a ton of hidden sugar, and many also include hard-to-find specialty items.

But not the recipe I am going to share with you today!

It’s fast, easy, and you might already have everything you need to make it right in your pantry. It’s also gluten-free and can easily be vegan.

TIP: Getting the skins off the chickpeas will make a big difference in the texture. It’s a little tedious but it’s worth it.

  • A quick method – rinse them in a colander, then spread them out on 1-2 layers of paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
  • Place some paper towels over them and rub them back and forth vigorously. The peels should start to come off. Rinse and repeat!

Healthy-ish Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

PB Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough

This makes about 2 cups/16 servings

What You Need –

  • 1 can (15.5 oz/440 grams) unsalted chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and peeled
  • 1 cup (255 grams) peanut or nut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 4 oz (115 grams) dark chocolate chips (at least 70% cacao)
  • OPTIONAL — 2-3 tbsp melted dark chocolate

Putting It Together –

  1. Place the first 5 ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth and well-blended.
  2. If you’re using the melted chocolate, blend it in, and then stir in the chocolate chips.  Taste and adjust sweetness.
  3. Scrape the batter into a jar or covered container and enjoy! (Tip: store this in the refrigerator – it’s extra-yummy when it’s cold.)

You could make this for yourself or your family … OR you can put them in nice glass jars with some fun ribbon and give them out as holiday gifts!

Enjoy 🙂
