Snacks/ Sweet

Protein bomb cookie dough bites

During this lockdown period, I have heard a lot of friends mention how snakish they have become. I have also found myself scratching around the kitchen in search of a little nibble more often. While I have no problem with eating in-between meals, I want to try to keep these food items as healthy as possible. 

Chickpea cookie dough bites are one of the snacks I’ve been loving during this lockdown. They are super yummy, really easy to make,  healthy, and high in protein and fiber! You can coat them in melted dark chocolate for a richer dessert or add some nuts for extra crunch.
