Chickpeas are not just used for making dips and in salads. You can grind them and use them in baked goodies as well. I made these cookies with whole chickpeas from a can.


1 1/4 cups chickpeas drained and ground

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp of natural peanut butter

1/4cup agave nectar

1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 tsp  baking powder

3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a food processor grind chickpeas first. Then add peanut butter, agave nectar, vanilla, sea salt and baking powder together. Once blended add in chocolate chips and mix with a wooden spoon. Roll batter into teaspoon size balls and press down with a fork. If batter is too soft put in fridge for 20 minutes first. Bake for 10 minutes. Let stand on tray for a few minutes and then cool on a cooling rack for another 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
