  • 15 Ounces Canned Chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 Cup Unsweetened Powdered Almond Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar, Unpacked

Can’t you taste the chickpeas in this recipe? 

I don’t think the chickpeas are overwhelming in this recipe. They’re a very neutral bean flavor and with the almond butter and the cream cheese, there’s not a dominant garbanzo bean flavor. If you are super sensitive to the flavor of these beans you might not love this recipe as much as I do!

Of course, I have the WW Freestyle breakdown for you on this cookie dough recipe. It’s a little more complicated now that there are three different plans for the Freestyle program. I’ll list them below so you can see what each plan tracks for a serving of this cookie dough. 

  • Green Plan: 4 Points Per Serving 3.5 Tablespoons
  • Blue Plan: 3 Points Per Serving 3.5 Tablespoons

Each of these plans has its own rules for what counts for a point and what is free so make sure you are following the points and tracking for your particular program color! If you make changes to the recipe, ingredients, or servings you will need to calculate the points for yourself as I can’t predict how that will impact the overall points for every plan.

I'm excited to try this. Do you think powered peanut butter will work instead of the powered almond butter?
