Cookie Dough For Breakfast

In my continuing efforts to keep the baby weight at bay, I’m always on the lookout for ways to treat myself without consuming a gazillion calories, or filling up on foods that have little to no nutritional value.

Enter healthy cookie dough!  I found the recipe here, and made a few modifications to suit my tastes.

It sounds weird.  You must try it, and tell me what you think.  I think it’s a revelation.

Healthy Cookie Dough

The players.

  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 Tablespoon light butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients into a food processor (I used my Ninja), and blend until VERY smooth.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Devour.

The whole recipe is 720 calories, so I ate half and called it breakfast.  What? Chickpeas have 12 grams of fiber, 15 grams of protein, and 26% of your daily iron requirement per serving! Bow down.
