Vegan Sugar Cookie Dough

Sugar cookies are a classic holiday treat & fun to make for Christmas so I put my own spin on the recipe! It's no flour, no butter, no eggs, and it tastes just like cookie dough. How? The magic of garbanzo beans. Garbanzo beans are a legume that are a great source of fiber, protein, manganese, magnesium, and iron. Their flavor profile depends largely on what is added with them, you can make hummus, roasted chickpeas, add into a soup/salad, "cookie dough", etc.
