Healthy High Protein Cookie Dough (100% Vegan + Gluten-Free)

This looks and tastes like your regular cookie dough only it’s full of fibre, packed with protein, and is 100% plant-based. 

The secret?

Chickpeas.

Believe it or not, chickpeas are a great ingredient to use in dessert recipes. Once blended, they work in a similar way to flour and are full of protein, fibre, folic acid and manganese.

Blending the chickpeas with nut butter creates an gooey, creamy texture,  using the Vanilla Bean Plant-Based Protein makes the cookie dough perfectly vanilla-y and deliciously sweet, and adding in some dark chocolate chips adds a little richness.

And this cookie dough is super simple to make — just pop all the ingredients in a blender and you’re ready to go!

You can play around with different flavours too. Add desiccated coconut and dried mango for a tropical twist, stir in a little cinnamon and ginger for a more wintery vibe, or add some cocoa powder and use the Cacao and Caramel Plant-Based Protein if you fancy something rich and chocolatey.

 Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained (240g drained weight)
  • 30g oats
  • 30g vanilla bean plant-based protein [link to plant-based protein powder]
  • Sweetener of choice (*see note below for suggested amount)
  • 60g nut butter (cashew, almond and peanut all work well)
  • 25g dark chocolate, chopped (or use chocolate chips)
  • Optional extras: raisons, desiccated coconut, flaked almonds, chopped nuts

Directions

  1. Add all the ingredients, except the chocolate chips to a blender and blender for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy. If it seems too runny, add a few more oats, and if it looks dry then add a dash of plant-based milk.
  2. Stir in the chocolate and any other extras you are adding.
  3. Either empty the cookie dough into a bowl if you’re planning on eating it immediately or pop it in a jar to store in the fridge. It’s delicious served with fruit as a dip, or you can roll it into balls to create cookie dough protein balls, or you can simply eat it with a spoon!

Enjoy!

*Maple syrup, agave nectar, sugar, coconut sugar, and stevia all work well — simply adjust the amount to your taste. I find 1-3tbsp is plenty for most people’s taste buds.
