Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I’m mourning the end of care-free, relaxing summer days. School has started. Long days and homework woes have set in. I’m also keenly aware that there are only TWO summers left before my first born is off to college. Where does the time go?!

You know what makes things better? Cookie dough!

More specifically, a cookie dough that you can feel guilt-free about enjoying. I’m talking about…

Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Chick Pea "Flour"

The key to this guilt-free snack is chick peas. Pictured is of a can of chick peas that have been chopped in a food processor.

It’s no secret that I’m a chick pea fan. Case in point, Brownie Batter Dessert HummusCrispy Curried Chick Peas and Cilantro Pesto made with Chick Peas.

But, I give complete credit to Melissa over at My Whole Food Life for turning me on to chick peas as a type of “flour” in baked goods.  This recipe is a variation of her Flourless Cookie Dough Truffles.

Let me tell you…the batter really does taste (almost) like the real thing! I was jump up and down, this is a dream come true excited about it!

Flourless No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

I added flax seed and walnuts so I could feel good about serving these for breakfast on busy school mornings. Let me just say, chocolate chip cookie dough is a real incentive to get out of bed in the morning. 🙂
