Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies



I have to admit that I wasn't too keen on making these cookies when I first saw the recipe on this website .  How is it at all possible for chickpeas to be appetizing in a cookie?  

I then began loving the possibility of finding a tasty, healthy cookie that contained no flour or sugar.  And after reading so many positive comments about how good the cookies are, I decided to give them a try.

I have to say that I was surprised when I tasted the cookie!  I could not taste the chickpeas at all.  I found them delightfully good.  There's no guilt when eating these! :)

Recipe

Ingredients:

1¼ cup cooked or canned chick peas 
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup of peanut butter 
¼ cup honey
1 tsp baking powder
    ½ cup dark chocolate chips 
      Directions:
      • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
      • Blend all but the chocolate chips in a food processor or blender until smooth.  If you use a blender, you will have to add 1/4-1/2 cup of water.  This makes the dough more runny, but the cookies still turn out really good!
      • Stir in chocolate chips.
      • Bake for 12-15 minutes.
      • Enjoy!
      To make them more chocolatey, add 2 tbsp. of cocoa powder! 

      Have you ever made cookies with an ingredient replacing the flour?
