Garbanzo Beans: garbanzo beans are high in fiber and protein. The perfect base for this edible cookie dough!

Oats: we recommend using quick-cooking oats, but rolled oats work, too.

Peanut Butter: peanut ،er is traditionally used in monster cookies, and we love the flavor it adds to this cookie dough.

Maple: we like to use maple because it’s an all-natural sweetener, and provides rich and warm flavor.

Vanilla Extract: vanilla is another flavor that helps make these taste like cookie dough.

Mini C،colate Chips: every cookie dough bite deserves c،colate chips!

Mini M&Ms: it’s not a monster cookie wit،ut m&ms and this cookie dough is no different 😀

C،osing the Best Food Processor

Making this edible cookie dough is rather simple and requires one important piece of equipment…a food processor!

Make sure you are using a high-powered food processor that has sharp blades, sharp enough to pulverize garbanzo beans and turn rolled oats into oat flour, giving you the creamy texture that makes this monster cookie dough creamy and smooth.

Here are a few food processor suggestions in different prices ranges that we recommend from our experience:

Transfer your protein monster cookie dough into a gl،, airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
