Cookie dough for breakfast.

Yup, you heard that correctly. I love making cookie dough desserts with chickpeas. I had some leftover chickpeas in my refrigerator, but not enough to make one of my signature desserts, cookie dough bites.

I never thought I would be adding pulses to breakfast, but this fun creation adds a fun flair to breakfast, plus packs in extra fiber and protein. Remember cookie crisps? I feel like this is the adult version. Make a larger batch and enjoy these mini cookie dough bites when craving a sweet treat.

The smoothie.

With the extra addition of these little cookie dough bites, keeping the smoothie bowl simplistic is key. Just banana, almond butter, milk, and vanilla protein powder. The protein powder creates a fluffy texture to the smoothie bowl and adds satiety to feel full throughout the morning.

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups

Are you ready to take dessert up to a whole new level? Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Cookie Dough – need I say more? Enter – Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups.
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenIs there a certain way you eat certain foods? Anytime I eat a Reese’s peanut butter cup, I gently poke out the middle and eat that first then eat the edges. I like to say that is quirky (my bf thinks I’m weird). Then you have those who just bite a string cheese instead of pulling them into little strings are monsters! There was a recent Buzzfeed article that my bf and I were laughing at of how people eat certain foods. We’ve concluded that they just can’t be trusted. Just kidding, but in all seriousness who actually eats those foods like that?
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenBack to these Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups. They are combining my all of my favorite treats into one: chocolate + peanut butter + cookie dough .. need I say more?

The base of the cookie dough is my favorite chickpea combination. The key is peeling the skins from the chickpeas to create a creamy cookie dough. I know this step might be tedious, but don’t skip it!
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Cups via RDelicious Kitchen @RD_KitchenI recently invested in a silicone mini muffin pan. The first round I made these, I used a regular muffin tin and used mini muffin liners. Now this way does work, but it is a little messier evenly lining the muffin liners with the chocolate and peeling them off when they are done. The silicone pan makes it so much easier, plus quicker clean up!

Healthy Cookie Dough Bites

Calling all cookie dough lovers. This recipe is for you.
Healthy Cookie Dough Bites - Calling all cookie dough lovers. This recipe is for you. Have your "cookie dough" and eat it too, with a healthy twist using chickpeas as the base.A few months ago, on a whim, I made a cookie dough dip. This was actually a simplified version of a “dessert hummus” recipe I created that was published in a cookbook I developed recipes for in a previous job.

Have your "cookie dough" and eat it too, with a healthy twist using chickpeas as the base.This past weekend, being snowed in from winter storm Jonas, there was not much else to do (in between all the shoveling) but cook and bake all day! I was going to make the cookie dough dip again, but this cake pop video popped up on my facebook and inspired me to turn the dip into bite-size treats.

I’m sure any flour would work, but I find oat flour is easy to work with and makes it a great addition to add whole grains to a recipe.

You can make them like a cake pop by simply adding a popsicle or leave them as little bite-size treats. Either way, they are perfectly portioned for a little sweet treat.
