Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles (made from chickpeas!)

Cookie Dough Truffles
(makes 18-20 truffles)
  • 1/2 can chickpeas or white beans, drained and rinsed (125g after being drained)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • scant 1/8 tsp salt
  • scant 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons nut butter or oil (If you use peanut butter, they’ll have a slight “pb cookie dough” taste.)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (For a sugar-free option, see the very last link of this post.)
  • 2 T chocolate chips, or more if desired
  • 1-2 T rolled oats or quick oats (or flaxmeal)
  • optional: 1 bag chocolate chips
  • optional: nondairy milk to thin it out batter, if needed
Add all ingredients (except chocolate chips) to a food processor, and blend until very smooth. Then mix in the chocolate chips and form balls. You can eat these plain, but if you wish to cover them in chocolate, allow to chill in the fridge. Once chilled, melt chocolate chips with 2 tsp coconut oil (or shortening). Take the balls from the fridge and cover in chocolate, then return them to the fridge to harden. See the original recipe here (I love Chocolate Covered Katie!).

Nutrition: each truffle will have only 40 calories, so enjoy as many as you like! I know I did :)
