Chickpea Cookie Dough Recipe

Chickpea Cookie Dough Is the Perfect Weight-Loss Treat

The mighty chickpea helps with weight loss and can be added to your diet beyond basic hummus. This highly snackable garbanzo bean cookie dough certainly proves this point. Vegan and gluten-free, the "dough" is an excellent source of fiber and protein in one sweet, healthy dip — perfect for apple slices. 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.
