Healthy Cookie Dough









Eating raw cookie dough is such a tempting thing. But honestly, I never do it. I simply don't like the idea of eating raw eggs. So after seeing so many bloggers using chickpeas for various sweets, I decided to make a healthy alternative to cookie dough. There are no raw eggs, no flour, no butter or oil! And it's sweetened with honey! That means you can have the whole batch and eat it without any guilt. And what is best, it tastes amazing. I won't lie - it's not exactly the same as cookie dough which I think it's impossible wo make. But believe me, it's good enough for you to make it, believe me. Try and you'll see! 

And now about the recipe. You can add more/less honey according to your taste. And the type of chocolate also depends on you. I used dark chocolate because it's healthier. But you may use milk or a combination of both.


Healthy Cookie Dough

250g chickpeas
2 tsp vanilla sugar
8 tbsp honey
100g homemade coconut butter
1/4 tsp salt
100g chocolate, chopped

1)  Cook the chickpeas and drain well. Remove the skins (Yes, you'll need patience but you don't want to taste skins in your cookie dough). It is easier to do this by rubbing the chickpeas gently between two towels. After this, mash them with a fork so no big chunks are left.*

2) Now make the coconut butter. In your coffee grinder, process dried unsweetened coconut flakes until it starts resembling softened butter.

3) Mix the chickpeas with vanilla sugar (or use vanilla extract but add less, there's no big difference), honey, coconut butter and salt. Mix until very well combined. You may need to use your hands to help you. Work in the chocolate chunks.

4) Now roll them into balls (as shown below), or simply put in a bowl and eat with a spoon!

*You may mash the chickpeas with a food processor. I suppose It's much easier so you can simply throw all the ingredients (except chocolate) and process until smooth. Unfortunately, I don't have a food processor!

  1. Guilty! I always eat raw cookie dough, raw brownie, raw cake...

    Last weekend I made chocolate cake with black beans. I think you'd like. I was not all me, wasn't sure. But it was perfect, just tasted like cocoa.

    So, why not using chickpeas in this? Now, I think I have a new view of the world :P So I dare this :P Have to try it!! I'm sure chickpea gives perfect texture to look like really cookie dough.

    1. Haha, I'm afraid of raw eggs in a raw cookie dough :D
      True, when you start combining ingredients that don't match together at first sight, it's very interesting to start looking for new ways of making food more healthy but equally tasty only with healthy ingredients!

  2. Hi, I just wanted to say this looks AMAZING and it's perfect for me, since I'd choose cookie dough over cookies any day! Unfortunately, we don't have a coffee grinder. Is there any other way to make the coconut butter?

    1. Hey! Well I think you could make coconut butter in a food processor. Since I don't have one, I use coffee grinder. Hope you'll try this out!

  3. How about baking the dough to get "real" cookies? Did you ever try that?

    1. No, I haven't tried it. I think for baking it should contain baking powder and eggs. I can't give advice but if you try it and it turns out great, please let me know! :)
