Mornings are more exciting when you have overnight oats waiting for you in the fridge. This cookie dough version had me flying out of bed when my alarm went off. Overnight oats are like a magical, delicious, surprise the next day. Here’s a cookie dough version- made with chickpeas! You probably never would’ve guessed, but chickpeas have a great cookie dough-like texture. Healthy cookie dough first thing in the morning? I think that’s the start of a great day.
