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.
