Ingredients:

      • 1 ¼ cups canned chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry
      • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
      • ½ cup + 2 Tablespoons natural peanut butter (regular peanut butter will make the cookies too oily)
      • ¼ cup honey or agave
      • 1 teaspoon baking powder
      • ½ cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. With wet hands, form into 1 ½ inch balls. The mixture will be very thick and sticky. Lightly press cookies onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, or onto a Silpat. Bake for about 10 minutes.
