That’s a long name for a little bite 🙂 but these cookie dough balls are awesome! I saw this recipe go ’round and ’round Facebook (you probably have too) and decided to try them. What I liked the best about this recipe was the all-natural ingredients and the fact that it was GF. So just in case you were deciding whether or not to make these, I would highly recommend it.
GF PB & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
1 can garbanzo beans, drained, rinsed, and dried
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup + 2 T *Natural peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350*.
In food processor put in everything except chocolate chips.
Process ingredients until smooth. Scrape down sides and make sure garbanzo beans have been pureed well. Will be very thick.
*I don’t think it would matter if you used crunchy PB over creamy, though the peanuts may get pureed a bit. Also, make sure you use natural PB only and not regular, as the regular will make the cookie bites come out too oily.
Stir in chocolate chips and pulse a few times if desired. I made mine rather smooth all the way around, but if you want the chips to be whole, just fold them into the chickpea mixture.
Use a 1-inch melon-baller or your hands to make round balls (you will need to wet your hands as mixture is very sticky). Place them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes.
