Feeling snacky? Whip up some of this Healthy Eggless Cookie Dough to satisfy your sweet tooth. But don’t worry, it’s made from a secret ingredient – garbanzo beans!
You could say I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks. Had my husband in the hospital with appendicitis a few weekends ago while dealing with having one of our two cars in the shop for over two weeks. Yeesh!
My husband got in a fender bender which messed up the steering really badly and we had to take the car in to be fixed. We opted to not get a rental car since it wasn’t in our insurance plan and we didn’t want to spend the extra money (total cheapskates 🙂 ).
Having only one car is has its pros and cons…
- Only one car but two people who need to be places.
- No gym!
- Stuck inside the house all day.
- Need to be seriously organized to get everything done the one day you do have the car.
- Starting new at home workouts.
- Getting out of things you don’t want to do aka “Oh, sorry! I don’t have a car so I can’t make it to your Mary Kay party.” lol
- Spending more time cooking and baking.
- Eating eggless cookie dough.
Did you catch that last one? Yeah, I’d do it all over again just to eat more of this cookie dough.
Being able to eat uncooked cookie dough with a spoon is like a dream come true. I looooove cookie dough. There is nothing better than sitting down to watch your favorite TV show with a giant spoon of no-bake cookie dough. Oh wait, there is one thing that’s better… sitting down to watch your favorite TV show with a giant spoon of healthy no-bake cookie dough!
This eggless cookie dough is made with garbanzo beans, guys. Sounds so weird, I know, but you can’t even taste them and they add fiber and protein while making the texture more like cookie dough.
When my husband came home from work, I gave him a spoonful and he totally thought it was regular cookie dough – you can’t even tell it’s made from garbanzo beans! Okay, now it’s time to rush off and make this 5 ingredient heavenly treat – go!
- 1 15-oz can garbanzo beans
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 Tbsp. agave or honey
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
- Place garbanzo beans, peanut butter, agave or honey, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Put faux "dough" in a bowl and fold in chocolate chips. Dig in and enjoy!

Hope you husband is feeling better and you get your car back soon. Having one car can be tough especially when you have kids. I begin by thinking it won’t be a big deal then I start feeling trapped.
This cookie dough is brilliant. I love that you made it out of garbanzo beans. I so intrigued that I must try this. 😀

Haha, I’m all about cookie dough! And starting new workouts. I’ll just have to tell my family one car is a good idea 🙂 This dip looks addictive and completely like the real deal!
Rachel @the dessert chronicles says
So cool!! I can’t wait to try this out!
Guessing the garbanzo beans are drained?
Yes, Cheri! They’re drained, thank you for pointing that out. I’ll add that into the recipe. Thanks!

That cookie dough is brilliant. Its like dessert hummus.

Ohhhh one car. Yikes I couldn’t do it! But I would love the extra baking, cooking time if I could come up with amazing things like this!
What’s a serving size? Sounds yummy!
Hi Jen! You know what? I sort of ate a lot of it before figuring out a serving size…(insert guilty face here). However, I think dividing it into 10 servings, about a couple spoonfuls each serving is about right! That doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’s rich stuff so that’s about all you want to eat at a time. I hope you give it a try! I need to make it again and make my serving sizes more scientific, lol!
Can we actually cook this? Not a fan of cookie dough but love peanut butter cookies. 🙂
Hi! No, you can’t cook this dough but it is really delicious uncooked! If you don’t like cookie dough, I have a super yummy healthier peanut butter cookie recipe on my blog here: https://www.yummyhealthyeasy.com/2013/05/peanut-butter-chocolate-chip-cookies.html You should check it out and make them soon! Thanks!
This was fantastic! I added a fresh grind of sea salt and shared this new blog find with everyone I know! Nice to meet you!
YAY!! So happy you liked it! Happy to meet you, too!
The only downside to this is that you might eat the WHOLE bowl (or close to it). Otherwise great! : D
Looking forward to making again and maybe even sharing. ; )
HA!! I’m thrilled you liked it! And yes, it’s hard to stop at just a few bites, muahaha! 🙂
Have you ever tried to bake this? I dont know if it would work out because of the ingredients. But maybe ill have to try it to see.
Hi Jennifer! It won’t work to bake them! I’ve already tried – not a good outcome, lol! just eat it “raw”. 🙂
karen carder says
Did you try baking it? Seems if you added an egg, you could. I might try! ?
If you try it, let me know!! I haven’t added the egg!
Made this on Sat. This is so good it’s dangerous!
I had so much fun reading the post. LOL @ “faux dough”. I am not the cookie dough type of person but I can enjoy them in a truffle type situations. Opens up so many possibilities. Thank you for posting this!
