Peanut butter and choc chip chickpea cookies

Peanut butter and choc chip chickpea cookies

This isn't your usual cookie recipe, these are made from chickpeas and have no nasties in what so ever. Using chickpeas as the base gives them an awesome texture that is leaps and bounds lower in sugar and carbs than regular cookies.

There is NO sugar, NO butter and NO flour what so ever.

All you need is a food processor or blender and an oven and you are ready to go to make these healthy cookie alternative. We used a regular tin of drained chick peas, feel free to use dried chickpeas too, simply follow the packet instructions for soaking.

This recipe makes 6-8 decent sized cookies, lets get into it!
