CHICKPEA COOKIE DOUGH {vegan, gluten free, grain free}

I had some serious doubts about this recipe. I was like, chickpeas cannot even compare to cookie dough, can they?!? Well it passed the husband and toddler taste test! It literally took be under 5 minutes to make and is totally vegan, gluten free and grain free. Chickpeas are high in protein and fiber – making this cookie dough actually pretty healthy!
