Cookie Dough

I love to share our family favourites – everything I share is kid & husband approved! And this recipe is no different. A perfect dessert, snack or even a filling for the middle of a cake (oh yeah, trust me! Its unreal!) We love to eat this dip with pretzels, apples, cellery…or just eat with a spoon! All you need is a handful of ingredients, a food processor & 5 minutes!

Cookie Dough

1 can of chickpeas (drained & rinsed) 
2 tbs nut or seed butter (my favourites are almond or pumpkin seed)
3 tbs maple syrup 
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Toss all your ingredients into a food processor and blend. Stop to scrape the sides every minute or so. Blend well until very smooth. Add 1/3 cup chocolate chips – We love Enjoy Life mini chips.
