Easy Chickpea Cookie Dough Balls

Updated: Jun 30, 2020

Let's talk about making living a whole food plant based lifestyle sustainable and enjoyable.

I believe it requires recreating the foods/flavors you enjoyed prior to adopting this way of eating and lifestyle. That means creating whole food plant based dishes that are more than just salads. While I love and enjoy eating salad... I think to do this long term you need recreate the dishes and flavors your family loves.

That means eating tacos, Pad Thai, sloppy joe, lasagna, mac n cheese, soups, waffles, pancakes, nachos, french toast, popsicles, quesadillas, and the list goes on!

Anything you did pre Whole Food Plant Based you can recreate into a healthy recipe!

I found that making these beloved recipes whole food plant based oil free has been my ticket to health and making the food I eat enjoyable.

I love this chickpea cookie dough ball because it really does a great job of satisfying my sweet tooth and I can keep stored in my freezer to help portion control.

My main purpose of starting a YouTube channel is to help you find recipes you love that are easy and can keep you on track. Recipes that the entire family will love.

Can you use date syrup instead of date paste or will that be too liquidy?

Are there any chocolate chips that don't have oil, salt or sugar? I am thinking also how to make a melted chocolate with cocoa powder…hmmm.

Could you tell me if the 2C oat flour is the same as 2C of oats prior to pulverizing in the Vitamix? I never end up with 2 whole cups of flour when I measure out 2C of rolled oats. Thanks Brittany!
