Recipe: No-Cook Peanut Buttery Cookie Dough Bites

I think I need to make these to take to brunch this month. They're no cook and gluten free cookies. Only 1 Smart Point.

Description
Creamy and rich meet light and airy. The marvelous mouthfeel of these no-bake cookies is from pureed chickpeas.


No-Cook Peanut Buttery Cookie Dough Bites

• Prep Time: 15 min
• Cook Time:--
• Serves: 36
• Difficulty: Moderate
• 1 SmartPoints™


Ingredients
• 3⁄4 cup(s) canned drained chickpeas, rinsed and drained
• 3 Tbsp creamy peanut butter with omega-3
• 1⁄3 cup(s)dark brown sugar
• 1 tsp low fat cream cheese
• 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
• 1⁄4 tsp table salt
• 1⁄8 tsp baking soda
• 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
• 2 Tbsp peanut butter chips
• 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
• 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Instructions

Step 1: Combine chickpeas, peanut butter, brown sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract, salt and baking soda in a food processor; process until completely smooth. Add flour and peanut butter chips; pulse until just combined. Refrigerate until mixture is chilled, at least 1 hour.

Step 2: Using a melon baller, scoop cookie dough mixture into 36 small balls; gently place in a mixing bowl.

Step 3: In a small bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa powder; remove 2 tablespoons of sugar mixture and gently toss with chilled cookie dough bites (reserve remaining sugar mixture).

Step 4: Arrange coated bites on a serving platter and keep chilled until ready to serve; dust with remaining sugar mixture just before serving. Yields 1 cookie per serving.

Notes
Pureed chickpeas add protein and fiber to these cookies. Try them in blondies, date-nut bread or chocolate chip cookies.
