Chickpea Cookie Dough Bars
High protein, healthy and DELICIOUS cookie dough?…. yes please!
I was really skeptical of chickpeas in sweet things until I tried these and OH MY they are so tasty! An oaty, date-y base layered with a creamy, delish vanilla cookie dough and I PROMISE you can’t taste the chickpeas.
1 tsp vanilla Essence
dash of almond milk, to bind
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp peanut butter
125ml almond milk
40g vanilla protein powder, I use Vivo Life (click here for 10% off)
dark chocolate (chopped into small chunks) (I use 85%)
For the base: in a food processor, blend the nuts until they are a rough crumb. Blend together the rest of the ingredients until it forms a sticky ‘dough’. Line a loaf tin with baking paper and add in the the mixture. Press it down and put the tin into the freezer while you make the top.
For the top: in a food processor, add in all of the ingredients (except dark choc) until smooth. Add in the dark chocolate chunks and blend briefly until it is distributed.
