    Hi can almond flour be used instead of oat flour? Would it still be yummy?

    Hi, I found this recipe and wanted to know can the dates be dried? I bought some, but I just wanted to know if it would still work. I am a little hesitant to make this.

      I did it with sun dried dates and it came out great!

    This was delicious. I played around with the recipe and replaced half a cup of the oat flour with cooked garbanzo bean. It was really cool to make this as the base recipe and then play around with different toppings when you served it to make different cookie flavors, like peanut/almond butter, or some kind of coffee powder.

    If you’re not a chocolate fan, can you substitute something else for the chocolate chips?

    Can you use all purpose flour?

      • Ellie B
      • November 10, 2021

      Don’t use all purpose flour because it is not pasteurized. That’s why it’s nothing safe to eat raw cookie dough. It’s not because of the egg.

    Yours taste Amazing!!! I wasn’t into the cookie dough with the chickpeas Because it still taste like chickpeas cookie dough! Please email me your easy breezy recipes because I’m not cook. I just eat porridge and potatoes every day. I love my porridge because I have carrots and apples and banana blended and taste like a treat. That’s why I transition to a plant-based lifestyle because I only like dessert and I have to Lose a ton of weight. Mind you it was easy for me because I’ve hated animal proteins my entire life but I was forced to eat it. The word vegan did not exist when I was young

    Can you use a blender instead of food processor

    I substituted almond flour for the oat (hubby’s preference) and sweetened carob chips for the chocolate. I used Halawi dates (from The dates were so fresh and soft that when I heated the almond milk with them in it I only needed to whisk the mix (no processor needed). Most excellent! Thank you for the recipe.

    Hi! Do you have any recommendations on what you can substitute dates with? Dates can be a bit pricey so I wanted to see if there was a more cost effective sub – thanks!!
