These cookie dough bars are so delicious and are really quick and easy to make! They have such a great fudgey texture and the perfect balance between salty and sweet because of the dairy free chocolate and sea salt used!
I based this recipe on my 5 Minute Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookie Dough recipe which means, you guessed it, that these freezer bars also contain chickpeas! If you are yet to try any of my dessert recipes using chickpeas then I promise you that you cannot tell! If you like these bars why not try my triple chocolate version? You can find the recipe for my Triple Chocolate Cookie Dough Freezer Bars here.
They lend a lovely moist and fudgey texture to bakes and no bake desserts alike and I would definitely encourage experimenting with them!
Chickpeas have a great nutrient profile meaning that these cookie dough freezer bars do too! If you are trying to make more ‘healthy’ desserts and are looking to incorporate snacks with higher protein servings then these bars are for you! If you are not a fan of chickpeas for whatever reason, you might prefer to try my Creamy Chocolate Chip Avocado Bars which you can find here.
You can make these in ten minutes or less as I have noted, however, you will need to take into consideration the time needed for these bars to set. I usually pop them in the freezer, (hence the name), and store them in there to increase their shelf life. However, if you want a softer texture you could just keep these in the refrigerator but they will need eating within a day or two.
I use individual silicone brownie moulds to make these cookie dough bars, however, if you don’t have any you can just press the dough into an 8″ x 8″ brownie tray and cut into six pieces once set.
If you fancy trying some other chickpea desserts why not give my Chickpea Cookies, Brownies or Blondies a go! Alternatively, for other tasty no bake desserts made from legumes why not try my Black Bean Chocolate Truffles, which you can find here, my Triple Chocolate Chickpea Cookie Dough or my Coconut Cookie Dough Freezer Bars here.
