Have you heard of chickpea cookies? Sounds gross, right? Well, they aren\u2019t!\u00a0 I don\u2019t know how it\u2019s possible, but when you add just the right amount of nut butter, honey and chocolate chips, they really do taste like some version of a chocolate chip cookie. Don\u2019t get too excited. They aren\u2019t my all-time favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Honestly, no cookie can beat that, in my opinion. But they are decent. These peanut butter chocolate chip chickpea cookies are a dairy-free, gluten-free alternative that I personally like and don\u2019t feel the slightest bit of guilt when eating. This isn\u2019t the first time I\u2019ve used beans in baking. I tried black bean brownies one time, and I didn\u2019t mind those either. Honestly, these bean-based desserts are never going to be as good as the real thing, but they can be a healthy alternative to enjoy when you really don\u2019t (or can\u2019t) have the flour and\/or dairy. I also like these chickpea chocolate chip cookies because they are a great way to get my kids to eat beans without even knowing it. Over the years, I\u2019ve tried beans with them, but haven\u2019t had a ton of luck. There are some healthy foods they love and will eat over and over again. Beans and lentils just aren\u2019t there favorite, although they love green beans for some reason. Anyway, these chickpea chocolate chip cookies are an easy way to sneak in a little bit of health and extra fiber into their diets and they\u2019ll never know. I also love this recipe because it only has five ingredients. They are all natural, and they take less than 20 minutes to make, including cooking time. A bit of caution about this recipe \u2013 they don\u2019t set up like traditional cookies. They do brown on the bottom and they can hold together, but they are not as firm as regular cookies and more prone to breaking and crumbling. This personally didn\u2019t bother me, but I wanted to mention it. If you\u2019re feeling adventurous, you should definitely try these chickpea chocolate chip cookies. I\u2019m pretty sure you\u2019ll think they were worth the time. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies Ingredients: \u00bc cup honey \u00bd cup + 2 tablespoons peanut butter (or nut butter of your choice, I used chunky) 1 can of garbanzo beans (15 oz), rinsed and dried 1 teaspoon baking powder \u00bd cup chocolate chips Sea salt (optional) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, combine honey, nut butter, beans, and baking powder. Process until smooth and combined. Add in chocolate chips and hand-mix to incorporate. On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, roll 1 to 2 tablespoons of cookie dough in your hand and form into a little disk. Continue rolling and forming disks until all dough is used (mine made about a dozen). Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes, until the bottoms are browned. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes, until firm and place in airtight container and store at room temperature or in the refrigerator. I personally liked them in the fridge because I thought they held together better. Enjoy!
