A quick mention of something else fabulous…my iced chai latte obsession is really becoming all consuming.  For instance, I bribed myself to go grocery shopping last night with a run through the Starbucks drive through afterwards.  I’ve had 3 milky chai teas in the last 5 days.  As I’m typing up this post, I’m drinking one. 

The whole thing is ridiculous because I detested chai  anything for the last 5 years and now I’m all give me chai tea everything and if you looked at my to-do list for today, I’m planning on buying spices to make my own chai tea latte concentrate.  Along with my current icy chai tea, I’m currently munching on some milk chocolate covered honeycomb.  Gahhhh people have the best ideas for things to coat in chocolate. They have this cheese appetizer at this restaurant in Houston that I’ve been wanting to try because it’s served with honeycomb…but I’ve never quite made it there.  I’m not sure how honeycomb tastes on it’s own, but I can tell you that when it’s covered in chocolate and served with an iced chai tea latte it is quite the delicious thing.  Kind of like a classed up butterfinger.

So yesterday we got back from vacation.  Food recap will be posted next week.  We went to Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.  Andrew’s grandma has a cottage up there.  I feel so east cost saying “cottage”, but that’s what it is…this adorable, old white house with a bright minty green door.  It’s perfect. except for the bed situation.  You see, since getting married, Andrew and I have only slept in a king-sized bed.  Our bed in Delaware was a full-sized bed.  We managed to squeeze into in but when you’re on vacation, eating a lot of delicious food, you just kinda want your space at night.  One night we both somehow lifted our heads at the same time and ended up bashing into one another.  

I love beach towns though.  At some point in my life I want to live on the ocean.  That’s the retirement plan. 

It’s always good to be back home though.  We missed Maggie even though she was having a blast with her BFF the whole time (aka my parent’s beagle puppy).

So I shared this massive recipe dump all about healthy cookie dough.  Now I’m sharing my own cookie dough recipe.  I’ve been making these and eating them for snacks and dessert.  You can easily triple the recipe to use up the entire can of chickpeas.  Of course the sprinkles are optional, but I mean come on.  No one wants to live in a sprinkle-less world all the time.

  1. looks sooo good!!! will def be trying this at some point!

  2. Hmm wonder if I could use almond flour instead of oat. Have you tried it?

  3. Sprinkles just make you smile. As does cookie dough. So together, they make my cheek muscles hurt. I have yet to try the chickpea in dessert thing, but I will do it for the sake of cookie dough!
    Hey, come to the east coast more often!!

    • I really loved it! My family tends to be more of west coast travelers. So it was a fun change! I’ll be back in Vermont next month! I’m excited! I’ve never been!!

  4. All of your cookie dough recipes are killing me! So much yummmmm

  5. I need the iced chair recipe… I’m also up to 3 this week, damn Starbucks. I NJ

  6. I think my computer tweaked out when I posted my comment… oops :( *chai

  7. ooh these cookie dough bites look delicious.. love anything funfetti related too!

  8. Never used chickpeas in a cookie dough before. I use chickpea flour but never mashed them as you did here. sounds like an easy yet really yummy treats! Pinned!

  9. The east coast beaches get a bad rap… but they aren’t so bad :) I grew up in PA so Delaware and NJ beaches were common for us. Glad you had fun! PS. I’ve never done the whole beans in my dessert thing, but I think I may be convinced with this recipe. Thanks!

    • I do love my Southern California beaches…but we had a great time in Delaware! Beach sunrises in the mornings makes the evenings on the beach more enjoyable since the sun isn’t blazing down on you. And the boardwalk in Delaware was amazing, it was so fun to just walk around and take in the atmosphere…so many ice cream cones lol:) Can’t wait to go back next year!

  11. Can you bake these? If so, should I add more ingredients?

  12. OMG I have so many chickpeas I just need to use… and rainbow sprinkles get me EVERYTIME. These would be a fun little after-lunch bite :)

  13. I was wondering if the sprinkles you have shown are all natural. And if so, where did you get them? Thanks, Barbara

    • Unfortunately they’re just plain ol’ sprinkles. I would imagine Whole Foods would have some all-natural options! And I’ve been meaning to make my own sprinkles for awhile…hopefully soon I’ll get around to it!

  17. Do these take like raw chickpeas at all? I’ve had bean desserts in the past and found the taste to be obvious but I could deal with it. However, they need to remain undected by my husband.

    • The usual verdict is…if you know there are chickpeas in them, then you CAN taste them. If you don’t know there are chickpeas in them, then you CAN’T taste them;) I hope that helps some!!!
