One of the best things we love about creating healthy treats is experimenting with disguising healthy ingredients, usually vegetables. This time: chickpeas!
Chickpeas are such a versatile little legume, packed with protein and fiber along with several other powerful vitamins and minerals.
You might think that the taste of these 'Cookie Dough' Bon Bons would be compromised by adding in legumes, but the truth is, it's not. You (or your friends, family, partner) won't even notice that they are there, and everyone loves Cookie Dough so no questions will be asked ;-)
