Lately I’ve been going thru the pantry and trying to use all my lingering food items. One thing I always have on hand, is a can of chickpeas! Whether you’re throwing them in a sandwich, making hummus, or using the brine to make aquafaba, there is always a use for them! Honestly, one of the last things I thought I could ever do with them, ..was a cookie recipe lol.
They are beans, salty, mushy, just how could that even work?! Believe or not, it just does!
I imagine it stems from the peanut butter serving as the binder, but you can easily pair peanut butter with something and create a cookie like texture. So just when you think chickpeas couldn’t be anymore awesome, you discover they can make a chocolate chip cookie, and the rest is history!
What’s great about this recipe is that it’s only 6 ingredients, easy to follow, made in 1 bowl, its packed with plant protein and fiber, filling, gluten free, low sugar, you can sub with any sweetener you like, perf for any season, affordable, contains no dairy or eggs, no oil, the chocolate is sweetened with stevia, the texture resembles that of a cookie, it’s packed with chocolate, and it’s just a wonderful concept!
