If you have yet to try baking with chickpeas you are missing out! Try these healthy chickpea peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips!
I have made many sweet recipes using canned chickpeas in the past especially brownies and chocolate hummus dip! But I had yet to try to make the infamous chickpea cookies. I made them a bit healthier by not using any coconut oil and adding buckwheat flour to keep them gluten-free. I used peanut butter to make them chewy and delicious.
I promise you cannot taste the chickpeas due to the peanut butter and maple syrup. The key is to blend them enough so the chickpea cookie batter is smooth enough and you dont have bits of chickpea skins in your cookies!
