  • 6 dates pitted and soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • 400 g chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tsp stevia powder or Truvia
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream or coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp nut butter I like sunflower seed or hazelnut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips vegan and sugar-free, if possible

for Peanut Butter Cookie Dough:

  • 20 g peanut butter powder optional
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter instead of nut butter


  1. Take dates out of soaking liquid and put into your blender. Blitz into a smooth paste and add all other ingredients apart from the chocolate chips. Blend until smooth. 

  2. Transfer cookie dough into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Chill for about 2 hours covered with cling film and enjoy! 

Recipe Notes

The cookie dough keeps in the fridge for about a week when stored in an airtight container. 

  • The chilling time is crucial as it really enhances the texture of the edible vegan cookie dough since the coconut cream and nut butter have a chance to really firm up and make the cookie dough thicker.
  • I like using coconut cream in this recipe, as it lends a certain creaminess to the vegan cookie dough. Coconut cream comes in cans. Alternatively, you can refrigerate a can of coconut milk and scoop off the solid cream that gathers on top.
  • I have made this vegan cookie dough recipe both in my food processor and my Vitamix and it worked well with both.
  • You can use canned chickpeas, but make sure you rinse them well. Don't throw out the soaking liquid! You can use it to make incredible Aquafaba Chocolate Mousse¬†or even Aquafaba Meringue Cake.
