Healthy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough
We all know the best part of any cookie is the raw dough, so why pretend? Forget the oven and eat this high-protein treat with a spoon. A secret ingredient (chickpeas!) adds a healthy touch to this veganized childhood favorite, which is best enjoyed in un-cooked form. For more of Ricki Heller's delicious ways to use chickpeas in desserts, check out her guide to The Healthy Dessert Ingredient You’ve Never Tried on VegNews.com.

What You Do:
1. In a food processor, combine 1/4 cup oats with coconut sugar until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add chickpeas, sunflower-seed butter, coconut oil, coconut flour, protein powder, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, stevia, and milk and process until very smooth, scraping sides of bowl as needed.

2. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oats and raisins and pulse a few times until raisins are chopped. Serve immediately or store, covered in refrigerator, up to 4 days.

Chef's Tip: Sub in chocolate chips instead of raisins for a more decadent version.
