When I read about chickpea cookie dough and how gross it is said to be (according to this Vice-article ;) my first thought was ‘hm, like, really??’. Immediately followed by my second thought: ‘Challenge accepted”. After checking my kitchen and the things I had in my drawers I started experimenting and came up with a recipe that is so good, I can’t even describe it. Wanna make more more more!!
Note: If you like Mozartkugeln, you will love this recipe. In my opinion the balls tasted really similar! If you are not the mazipan-fan, skip the almond butter and add more peanut butter or any other nut butter.

Vegan cookie dough balls with peanut butter

What you need:

1 handful dried chickpeas or 1 can cooked chickpeas
3 tbsp maple syrup
3 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 1/2 tbsp white almond butter (or any other nut butter you don’t like the slight marzipan flavour)
1 dash rice-coconut-milk (or any other plant-based milk)
cinnamon

vegan chocolate (as much as you like)
coconut oil

How to make it:

1. Soak the chickpeas over night in a lot of cold water. The next day, cook them until they are soft. (You can skip that step if you use chickpeas in a can. In this case, just rinse them.)
2.Put all your ingredients (except the chocolate) in a blender and blend until quite smooth. If the mixture is too dry, add a little bit more plant-based milk.
3. Chop a few chocolate pieces in small chips and add them to the mixture. Your cookie dough is now ready to be eaten. If you want to make balls, read further.
4. Form small balls out of the dough. Melt a little bit of chocolate plus some coconut oil in waterbath and plate the balls with melted chocolate. When finished, put them in the fridge (or the freezer, if you want it super-fast) and enjoy, as soon as the chocolate is hard. :*
