Chickpea Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies! (yeah, you read that right!)

Chickpea recipes have been all the rage on Pinterest these days and one of our TT members just told me how much she loved a recent weekend recipe trial she did (thanks Yolanda for the inspiration!)

I decided it was time to jump onboard the chickpea craze and test it out for myself!

I had some taste testers from the studio give me two thumbs up, and I really liked them since I can’t eat eggs and haven’t had a cookie in a long time! I hope you enjoy these as much as we did, and I’d love to hear what you think!

1 cup of canned chick peas

4 packets of splenda (you could also use stevia OR 1 tbsp of honey which would slightly adjust the nutrition)

2 tbsp of PB2 (Optional, be I like the flavour it gave them!)

Dark Chocolate Chips (your choice of how many, I put 2-3 per cookie, and for the sake of calculating this recipe used 16)

Blend in a mixer and place in small balls on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake at 350.

***You could also add in protein powder
