- 1 1/4 cups canned organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans), well-rinsed and laid out to dry
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips ( I used dark chocolate chips)
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and then process some more. Put in the chocolate chips and pulse once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky. With wet hands, form into 1 1/2" balls. Place onto parchment paper or a sprayed cookie sheet. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don't do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes. Yields about a dozen and a half.
