Friends, I wish I could take credit for coming up with this. I cannot. I CAN, however, take credit for passing it along to you via my pal, Sarah. She found a version of it online which was already pretty awesome. I've made it just a tad healthier.
There really isn't much more to say that these pictures don't express. Am I right?
Healthy for you Cookie Dough
1 1/2 cup chickpeas or white beans (1 can, rinsed and drained very well)

1/4 cup nut butter (peanut, almond or cashew)
2 Tbsp organic maple syrup or Sucanat**
2 Tbsp organic dark chocolate chips
2 to 3 tbsp rolled oats or ground flaxeeds

Combine all ingredient except the chocolate chips in a food processor and blend until smooth.
