The massive bowl of Halloween candy in my apartment sparked some cravings for a healthy dessert recipe incorporating these childhood (or adulthood...) favorite treats. I've made chickpea cookie dough before, but this recipe gets festive with the addition of Halloween candies. It isn't overindulgent or too sweet, and should be enjoyed by the spoonful!
1 can chickpeas
1/2 cup raw almond butter
2 tbsp ground golden flax seed
1/4 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-4 tbsp water
1 crushed Reese's
1 packed mini M&Ms (or chocolate chips if you don't care about being festive)
Drain and rinse chickpeas. Combine all ingredients except candy into a high-powered blender. Blend on high for 1 minute, then mix batter and add more water if necessary. Blend 1 more minute until everything is incorporated. Add to a bowl and stir in candy. Refrigerate for up to a week.
