    Cookie dough. It's the reason I make cookies.
    Who doesn’t love to lick the spoon clean?

    In fact, I far prefer the dough to the final, baked product.
    So, I’ve found a raw, healthy, and salmonella-free alternative cookie dough recipe.

    Why? Reason number one:
    94% of the 50,000 people who've gotten sick with salmonella and E.coli
    remember eating raw cookie dough prior to the symptoms.

    It was the only commonality among the people who got sick

    . No reason for you (not to mention your kids!) to flirt with that possibility.

    Reason number two: cookie dough is far from a cleansing food.

    It’s filled with sugar, other processed ingredients, and gluten
    —putting some at risk of getting a stomach ache (especially those with sensitive digestive systems).

    Now, I’m certainly not suggesting you live a life without cookie dough! So here's a delicious, healthy, and safe alternative to the unhealthy version.

    These “raw” cookie dough balls are soft, tasty, indulgent and … made with chickpeas!

    Yes, this delicious dessert is packed full of protein and iron-rich legumes.

    There’s also plenty of unrefined sugar, so work to enjoy one at a time…
    although, chances are, you’ll want to eat the entire batch after taking your first bite.

    16 ounces cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained

    3 tbsp raw organic honey

    1 tbsp coconut sugar

    1/8 tsp baking soda

    4 tbsp raw organic almond butter

    2 tsp vanilla extract

    Pinch sea salt

    1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips (mini's work best)

    Combine chickpeas, honey, sugar, baking soda, almond butter,
    vanilla and a pinch of salt in a food processor and process until smooth

    Transfer to a bowl and stir in half a cup of the chocolate chips

    Form into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet

    Freeze until solid.

    In a double boiler, melt remaining cup of chocolate chips

    Dip the balls into the chocolate until covered,
    then place back on parchment-paper lined baking sheet

    Freeze until chocolate has hardened, then store at room temperature
