Chickpea cookies!

Feeling a bit pekish?  Like a cookie but without all the 'bad stuff'?  then this is for you!

I grabbed this recipe of FaceBook a while ago and have finally tried it.  Firstly I made my own peanut butter (commercial peanut butter is full of nasties and will also be to oily .. but you could use a natural one if you don't want to make it yourself)

Peanut Butter Recipe

Ingredients - Raw Peanuts

Method - shell the peanuts, roast on an oven tray until golden and smelling yummy ... be warned though they will continue to cook for a while once taken out of the oven ... so don't let them get too brown in there!
Peel the 'skin' of the peanuts and process in a food process until it looks like peanut butter!

I'm very lucky and part of my Bosco mixer can very finely do this ......

Chickpea Choc Peanut Cookies Recipe

Ingredients - 1 1/4 cans (400g cans) chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry
                    2 teaspoons vanilla
                   1/2 cup peanut butter
                    1/4 cup honey
                    1 tsp baking powder
                   1/2 cup choc chips

Method - Preheat oven to 175 degrees celcius
               Process all ingredients (except choc chips) in a food processor until smooth
               Stir through choc chips
               With wet hands roll into balls and flatten on a lined baking tray.
               Bake for 10 minutes.
               Cool on tray (they are quite fragile)

 The texture is soft and they are very delicious .. although the texture is a little strange .. kind of like raw cookie dough ..... but so yummy and healthy!
