Oh my oh my, remember the days? Eating either halve the cake batter or cookie dough, before your mum popped the cake or cookies into the oven? Licking of the beater, mixing bowl and whatever else touched the sweetness that was used. To create even more sweetness after an hour or 2 (or 1, 30 minutes or whatever. it rhymes🤓). Below a recipe that’s been a hype for quite a while, especially when you search for it on Pinterest. Cookie dough made of chickpeas. What? How awful does that taste? Well..it doesn’t. This protein bad boy is a decent replacement of the old sugar bomb dough. And with even more flavour options, perfectly suitable to scoop away on a night alone. When you turned off your phone. Because there’s so much that needs to be done. But instead you decided to kick off with a new season Grace&Frankie on Netflix, and ignore your responsibilities that should be finished before the morning sun. Let me know, in a comment below what you think. What’s your favourite (tv)-show to watch while snacking and having a drink?
– 1 glass/can chickpeas

Wash the chickpeas thoroughly.
Throw (gently) all the ingredients into the food processor.
