Healthy Chickpea Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

Chickpeas are my favorite "weird" ingredient in healthy desserts. They produce a soft, chewy and rich texture without adding any unwanted taste. These cookies are made with good for you ingredients. There's no flour, sugar, butter or oil added so you can have the whole batch for yourself and feel good about it. Also, they come together in no time! 

Healthy Chickpea Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

1 can chickpeas (200g drained)
125g / 1/2 cup homemade peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
60ml / 4 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt (if using salted PB, omit salt)
90g / 1/2 cup chocolate chips 

1) Preheat oven to 180C / 350F.

2) Add all the ingredients except for chocolate chips in a food processor. Blend until smooth.

3) Transfer to a bowl and mix in chocolate chips.

4) Form small balls and flatten slightly. They will not spread a lot. The dough will be very sticky. Wet your hands so it doesn't stick that much.

5) Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool completely before transferring to a plate. 

Makes 1 dozen.
