Rocky Road Cookie Dough

I don’t know about you but I was definitely that kid who would sneak chunks of raw cookie dough while my mom was making cookies. I was addicted! She would tell me to stop for two reasons: a) the raw eggs weren’t good for me, and b) there wouldn’t be any left to make cookies πŸ˜› Finally, years and years later I have figured out a way to make vegan cookie dough where I am free to sit and eat as much as I want! Don’t get turned off when you see that the base is made of chickpeas. There is so much sweetness added to this recipe that you literally won’t be able to stop eating it. There’s nothing better than protein-loaded vegan cookie dough that tastes like rocky road ice cream! Feel free to eat it by the spoonful!



  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 c maple syrup
  • 1 heaping tbsp of almond butter (could replace with peanut butter)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 c chopped pecans
  • 1/4 c vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 c vegan marshmallows (I use Dandies, they taste just like the real thing!)



  1. Add the chickpeas, maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla in a food processor. Puree until fairly smooth
  2. Transfer into a bowl and stir in the marshmallows, pecans, and chocolate chips
  3. Keep refrigerated
