Chickpea Cookie Dough Recipe

Chickpea Cookie Dough Is the Perfect Weight-Loss Treat

There is more to the mighty chickpea than hummus or as a healthy salad topping, and this cookie dough recipe is proof. Vegan and gluten-free, this simple dip is an excellent source of fiber and protein in one sweet, healthy snack. While you shouldn't bake it in the oven, it's a tasty alternative to raw cookie dough. Forget the unhealthy days of chowing down on the prepackaged stuff, and try this easy recipe instead.

I haven't used Stevia powder in this particular recipe, but if you're not a fan of agave, I would opt honey or maple syrup so the "dough" keeps a similar consistency and texture.
