I would argue that one of the best parts about making homemade cookies is grabbing a taste of the dough itself! There is something so sweet about licking the spoon of a recipe before it’s ready (just me?!).
With this homemade cookie dough recipe, not only can you lick the spoon, but you can enjoy the entire bowl! *Sign Me Up!* Better yet, it calls for a ton of good-for-you ingredients, all easily found in your pantry. Some of these are honey, peanut butter and our Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Vanilla for a kick of delicious flavor — and boost to your collagen routine!
Wondering what the base of the recipe is? Nothing other than one whole can of chickpeas! (Okay, stay with me here.) Chickpeas add a ton of nutrition to the recipe, while also creating a surprisingly perfect cookie dough texture. Your friends and family will not even guess your new secret ingredient!
