VEGAN GLUTEN FREE COOKIE DOUGH

I love sweets, and have had to find ways to satisfy my sweet tooth, without the processed sugars and flour. ONE of my favorite desserts growing up was cookie dough, but with my gluten allergies, I

haven’t had chocolate cookie dough in over 4 years….UNTIL the other day when I came across a recipe on Dr. Jungers Clean Eats website. I made a few adjustments, like removing the Agave and replacing it wit Coconut nectar, which is much lower on the glycemic index, and taste just as sweet and rich. As well as adding a small amount of organic dried unsulfered fruit. YUMMMM!

INGREDIENTS
1 CAN CHICKPEAS DRAINED AND RINSED
1/4 CUP ALMOND BUTTER OR WHITE CHOCOLATE CAKE BATTER COCO-NUT BUTTER
3T COCONUT NECTAR
3T ROLLED OR WHOLE OATS
2tsp PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
1/4 tsp BAKING SODA
1/4 tsp SEA SALT
1/3 CUP GLUTEN FREE MINI CHOCOLATE CHIPS

I USE MY VITAMIX ON LOW TO MIX ALL THE INGREDIENTS ADDING THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS AFTER I HAVE THE PERFECT CONSISTENCY. REFRIGERATE FOR A FEW HOURS AND ENJOY!
