Let’s indulge shall we?
It’s easy to do so with this guilt free treat!
I was craving cookie dough the other day and this perfectly satisfied my cravings. It’s gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. We all want a little sweetness once in a while, but it can be hard to find something healthy when there’s all the additives and *refined sugar in so many products. So feel to grab yourself a bowl of this without any remorse. (I know I had more than my fair share of this….)
* Refined sugar has lost all nutrients and vitamins in it during the high heat process done. So you are literally eating empty calories.
This can be quickly thrown together in just a few simple steps and doesn’t take much effort. It’s great to have for a movie night treat or for when you sneak into the fridge looking for a bite to settle your sweet tooth.
So let’s get mixing now!
- 1 cup of coconut flour (Almond flour or another GF flour can be used as well)
- 1 cups of almond milk
- 1/2 cup of honey (or maple syrup for a plant based version)
- 1/2 cup of canned chic peas (plus 1/4 cup of liquid from the can)
- 4 dried medjool dates
- 2tbsp of coconut oil
- 1tbsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1 cup of dairy free chocolate chips
Combine chic peas plus liquid, almond milk, honey, dates (make sure the pits are removed), coconut oil, vanilla, and salt in a food processor (A stick blender can be used as well, but a food processor is just quicker). Then puree ingredients. Once pureed, place the wet mixture into a bowl.
Now you can add your GF flour just a little at a time.
Be sure to mix well each time you add flour so as to prevent clumping.
Now you’re ready to add the chocolate chips! I recommend 1 cup, but there’s not such thing as too much chocolate… so use the whole bag of you desire!
Mix in chocolate chips and you’re all set.
For storing: keep covered and store in fridge. Don’t keep it in the fridge for more than 1 week. Store in freezer after 1 week.
Now all you have left to do is eat it!
Enjoy darlings. I know I am!
