Oatmeal Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt

This ice cream was inspired after seeing this lovely recipe, cookie dough frozen yogurt, however it's obviously not so healthy... so this could possibly the strangest frozen yogurt recipe of all time, using beans as its base, yet all the while seriously tastes extravagant and delicious. I mean who can pass up eating cookie dough, let alone cookie dough ice cream & it's not ice cream with cookie dough... that's old news ;)
All the while this frozen yogurt packs in a ton of protein, it's creamy, satisfies that sweet tooth, packed with nutrients, and is filling-- it's that perfect snack or dessert!
I didn't have any chocolate, but of course you can just do a chocolate chip cookie dough if your not a fan of oatmeal or your favorite cookie dough recipe and turn it into a frozen yogurt treat. The possibilities are endless and so much fun! 

Oatmeal Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt: (serves 4)
Adapted from: tasty kitchen
2 tbs apple sauce
1.5 tbs butter
2 cups chickpeas
1/4 flax seed meal
1/2 ground oats
1/2 oats
1/4 sunflower seeds
1/2 raisins
3 tbs honey
1-2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 cup sugar*
1 cup Greek yogurt

*Depending what Greek yogurt you use (sweetened, flavored, plain) will change sweetness, as well as your taste buds so adjust accordingly.

Combine chickpeas, apple sauce, butter, honey, and vanilla in a food processor or blender (note: you will have to scrape the sides down if using a blender) and puree until completely smooth. Toss in flax seed meal, ground oats,cinnamon, salt, and pulse again. Pour mixture into a freezable container such as a cake pan, glass baking dish, or even a heavy duty tupper ware. Add oats, raisins, sunflower seeds to the mixture and combine. Pour greek yogurt and 1/2 cup sugar, mix, & taste. If it is not sweet enough, add in more sugar. Make sure the mixture is completely mixed through, spread evenly along tray. Cover with plastic wrap or a tight lid and freeze for at least a few hours, if not overnight. To serve, remove frozen yogurt from freezer at least 10 minutes to soften and garnish with an oatmeal cookie.
