The Benefits of our Plant Protein Powder
We've added our Cacao Plant Protein to these cookie dough bites, it's nutty taste with dark cacao works really well with the dark chocolate, vanilla and maple syrup.

Together with the chickpeas which provide the bulk of the recipe, our Cacao Plant Protein Cookie Dough Bites are packed with vegan protein and perfect for enjoying post-workout.
Why should I use dark chocolate chips instead of milk?
Dark chocolate with a cocoa content of between 70-100% is free from the added milk and sugar you find in milk chocolate. It brings that rich cocoa taste to the table in a vegan-friendly vessel, that's minimally processed and equally delicious!
If you don't enjoy dark chocolate, you could always use dried fruit such as goji berries, dried apricots or dried currants instead.
