Healthy & heavenly cookie dough balls

There is no easy or short name for these little nuggets of deliciousness. If you love chocolate chip cookies, and the dough you will LOVE this little gem of a recipe. Again, its super healthy and full of protein. I couldn’t believe the secret ingredient that makes these so good. CHICKPEAS!!! Who would have ever known chickpeas could be used to make cookie dough?

The other thing I loved so much about this recipe is that is was SOOOOO EASY. People always complain that being healthy is so much work. I can confidently say that these were one of the easiest cookie recipes I’ve ever made and WAY easier than regular chocolate chip cookies too.

I hope you loves them as much as we did! Oh ya and the kids… 100% approved, Coco ate 4 and reminded me with each one she doesn’t like chickpeas hahahaha WIN WIN!!!
