I’ve been giving Lily little tastes of the dough (minus the chocolate chips), and she loves it. She cannot yet safely eat nuts, and she’s not a big fan of straight peanut or almond butter; so this is a great way for her to get a dose of protein.

Healthy cookie dough for the entire family! Winning.

  1. THANK YOU! I can always taste the chickpeas in those recipes. Mine came out a little crumbly, so I added some coconut oil. I am going to try refrigerating them as balled up cookie dough bites and serving them as kid-friendly food at a party. I had a few bites (of course) before I stuck them in the fridge, and this is very yummy. For those that can do oats, I would think some oat flour would make for a nice addition, as well. Thanks again!!
