Sprinkle Cookie Dough Balls

This recipe was created during COVID-19 as an afternoon activity with our kids.  As any parent will know, children love sprinkles and marshmallows, this recipe includes nutrient dense foods like chickpeas and peanut butter, which offer some health benefits such as magnesium vitamin E and dietary fibre.  Paired with rainbow sprinkles or marshmallows this is a healthier ‘sometimes’ snack compared to a cupcake or cookie.
