The following recipe is by Michelle Garland:
This chickpea cookie dough is made from wholesome ingredients, and will satisfy any sweet tooth! It’s vegan, grain-free, and refined sugar-free with a side of CBD.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 0 minutes
Makes 2 cups
1 can chickpeas, peeled and rinsed very well*
1/4 cup cashew butter*
3 tbsp oats
1 dropper full hemp CBD oil
2 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
¼ cup dairy-free chocolate chips
Add all ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, to a food processor or high-speed blender. Process until a thick, even dough forms, scraping the sides as necessary.
Taste the dough and add more sweetener, if desired. Transfer the dough into a large bowl and use a spatula to fold in chocolate chips. Serve and enjoy!
*If cooking your own chickpeas from dry use 1 1/2 cup.
*Cashew butter is my favorite, though almond/peanut butter or tahini is also yummy!
*Leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to one week.
