Easy Kid Friendly Chickpea Cookie Dough Dip

I can’t get my 9 year old to eat my healthy snacks at all. I was so pleasantly surprised when I made this Easy Kid Friendly Chickpea Cookie Dough Dip and she couldn’t wait to dig in! She had no idea it was laden with protein-rich chickpeas. AND a bonus is that she is always asking to eat cookie dough and I never allow her to because of the eggs – there are NO eggs in this recipe!
