Healthy Cookie Dough

Healthy Cookie Dough

This is one of my FAVOURITE sweet treats – and the kids love them in their lunch boxes too! Who doesn’t like raw cookie dough ;0 yumyum! Here are 2 different recipes – 1 is chickpea based (you would never ever know! So good) and the other is almond meal based because yea I LOVE almond meal anything ;0 They are both great!!!


Option 1 (Chickpea based)




  • 1 can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup nut butter of your choice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds or almond meal
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips




  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas.  Dry them off with a paper towel and discard any skins that peel off in the process (this helps make the dough smoother)
  2. Add chickpeas, nut butter, vanilla extract, maple syrup and cinnamon to a food processor. Blend until smooth and creamy. Add the ground chia seeds/almond meal to the food processor. (you can grind chia seeds in a coffee bean grinder or a mortar and pestle) Blend until everything is combined.
  3. Add chickpea cookie dough mixture to a small bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll into balls and store in freezer – serve frozen or defrosted

      If you add all ingredients into MyFitnessPal to get a total cal amount, you can then decide how many balls you want to make depending on how many calories you want to be in each 🙂
