RECIPE: Chickpea cookies

Here is my recipe for some scrummy chickpea cookies


Serves: Makes roughly 12 cookies like the picture above.

Total time: 30 minutes maximum.


Ingredients
1¼ cups canned chickpeas (which is about one can)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ cup natural peanut butter
¼ cup honey
a pinch of salt
Splash of almond milk (or coconut/soy milk - optional)
½ cup dark chocolate chips

Method
Preheat your oven to 175°C.

Get a couple of baking trays and cover them with baking paper ready to put the cookies on to.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas then put them on a paper towel to roughly dry them.

Combine all the ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) in a food processor and mix until smooth and combined well.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

With either a spoon or wet hands, form into about 1½" balls and press down slightly but not completely flat as the cookies don't really rise. 

Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes.

and enjoy!


PS.
Don't forget chickpeas are still carbs so don't go eating them all in one sitting just because they're healthier than ordinary cookies.
