Healthy Dessert Recipes | Chickpea Cookie Dough 

The most massive struggle for my clients (and myself if I'm honest) is finding healthy dessert options. It's all fine and good to eat well for the main meals but dessert can be a real challenge because many healthy dessert recipes just don't have the flavour (or they're not actually healthy.)

This healthy cookie dough recipe is the answer! It's full of nutrients and low on sugar but still gives sweet satisfaction to your tastebuds! 

This is a 5 ingredient or less recipe and a 5 minute or less healthy recipe!
