Guys. This recipe! I’m kiiiind of super excited about it. And before the haters (cough husband cough) nay say it- I’ll just say it myself: obviously this doesn’t taste EXACTLY like real raw cookie dough with copious amounts of butter, sugar and white flour. It’s chickpea based raw cookie dough after all! But as a fairly nutritious substitute it comes pretty darn close and does the trick- totally curbs my cravings for raw cookie dough! The kids really like it (they beg for more spoonfuls!) and you only need a few bites to feel like you’ve had a treat.
I think the trick with this recipe is to 1. eat it cold and 2. adjust the ingredients to your specific tastes and preferences. If it isn’t sweet enough- add more sugar. Too nut-buttery? Use less nut butter. Can’t taste the vanilla, add a splash more. You could make this dough taste like brownie dough by adding cocoa powder, or intentially make it taste like peanut butter cookie dough by adding more peanut butter and omitting the chocolate chips (in which case I think you’d need more “powder” either in the form of sugar or some kind of flour).
Have fun with it and make sure you taste it as you go!
