Even though I try very hard to eat healthy and feed my family healthy foods, sometimes, I just have a sweet tooth. I don’t want to feel like I am depriving myself, so having a treat now and then is good…
But what if I could have a treat that is relatively healthy too? That’s a win-win!
A friend had shared a recipe for chocolate chip cookies made with chickpeas (I would have probably never thought to do that!), but I tried it and liked it, so I decided to put my own little twist on it:
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies
- 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- ½ cup natural cream peanut butter (or any nut butter you like)
- 2 Tbsp. raw honey, melted
- 2 Tbsp. agave necter
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. gluten free all-purpose baking mix
- ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients in food processor, except for chocolate chips. Blend until smooth. At this point, stir in chocolate chips. Now, you can either roll into 1 inch balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, slightly flatten; or you can simply spoon-drop them on and bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
And so good, you won’t even know that they’re healthy too!
