The secret ingredient to these grain-free chocolate chip cookies are chickpeas. They taste amazing!
Ingredients
  • 1 x 19 oz can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
  • ¾ cup natural peanut butter (see note)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of sea salt, optional
  • ¼ - ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the work bowl of your food processor combine all ingredients except chocolate chips. Blend until completely smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Add in chocolate chips and pulse a few times.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls on prepared baking sheet. You don't need to leave a lot of room between the cookies as they don't spread out or rise up much at all.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 - 10 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
  6. Cookies can be frozen.
