Yep, you read that right - chickpeas! These cookies are the softest, most delicious alternative to highly processed/sugary treats.
1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
2 big tablespoons natural peanut butter (ingredients will say 100% peanuts)
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
Pinch of salt (if peanut butter doesn't contain salt)
1/3 cup dark choc chopped into small chunks or cacao nibs
2-3 tablespoons water
Pre-heat oven to 180ºC
Place all ingredients (minus the chocolate) into a food processor and blend until combined
Stir in the choc chips and spoon out the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper. The mixture will be sticky so it's best to use two spoons to create a tablespoon sized dollop
Bake for 20-30min, until golden (longer for larger cookies)
Sprinkle with additional salt once out of the oven
Cookies will get firmer once cooled.
