COOKIE DOUGH BITES
425g tinned chickpeas, rinsed and drained 30g vanilla vegan protein powder 2 tbsp almond or cashew butter 1 tbsp coconut sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract 1⁄8 tsp sea salt 2 tbsp chocolate chips
FOR THE CHOCOLATE COATING:
130g dark chocolate chips 3 tsp coconut oil
TOTAL TIME: 22 Minutes
Blend the chickpeas in a food processor until they start to turn smooth.
Add all the remaining ingredients (protein powder, nut butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, sea salt) and process until a ball of dough forms.
Use a rubber spatula to break the dough up a bit, then add the chocolate chips and pulse a couple of times, making sure the chips evenly dispersed in the dough.
Remove the dough from the processor then (using a generous 1⁄2 tbsp amount), roll into balls and place on a small parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the fridge to chill for 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile make the coating.
Melt the chocolate and oil in a bowl over a pan of warm water or by placing in a microwave-safe bowl and heating for 1 minute and then in 30 second increments until chocolate is fully melted.
Use a fork or cocktail stick to dip each ball into the melted chocolate. Allow the excess to drip off before arranging on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Place in the fridge or freezer to set until ready to eat.
