Finally, a Healthy Edible Cookie Dough Recipe!
You know I love sharing healthy recipes for you and your kids to enjoy!
I love to eat, and my family loves to eat too! And though we definitely indulge in not-so-healthful foods from time to time, I also love finding recipes that make us feel like we are indulging when I know we are filling ourselves with nutrition.
I have a fantastic recipe for you today that will make you and your kiddos very happy!
I have never met someone who didn’t love eating cookie dough. It is sweet and melts in your mouth, and I actually must prefer to munch on dough than the baked cookies it makes. Our kids also LOVE cookie dough. Who doesn’t!? But usually, it has raw egg, which isn’t so healthy, and it can make you quite sick.
Though delicious, raw cookie dough is not safe to eat as it has raw or uncooked eggs and can be contaminated with dangerous bacteria. In particular, kids, older adults, pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems can be particularly at risk of getting sick for ingesting raw cookie dough. Just don’t do it. I know it is delicious. But don’t.
Have you tried the safe edible cookie dough trend yet? Some of the recipes out there are DELICIOUS! Some companies are even making edible cookie dough commercially! But it can be quite expensive, and some are little more than sugar and flour.
But not the recipe we are going to share here! I am eager to share my healthy and delicious edible cookie dough recipe with you!
This recipe is easy and fast, and you might already have everything you need right in your pantry. It is gluten-free and can be made vegan if you wish.
This recipe is filled with healthy fat and protein, and fiber to boot!
Your kids will devour them and not even know how good they are for them!
Getting the skins off the chickpeas will make a big difference in the texture. It’s a little tedious, but it is so worth it.
An easy method – rinse them in a colander, spread them out on paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
Place another layer or paper towel over the chickpeas and rub them back and forth vigorously. The peels will start to come off. Rinse and repeat!
You will watch the dough evaporate! You might want to hide it from your kids and partner!
