Chickpea Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

My first foray into chickpea baking was a horrible fail – I attempted an apple crisp – my family insisted it wasn’t “that bad” but honestly it was horrible! When I saw this recipe come across my facebook feed on Saturday morning I was skeptical but had a craving for cookies and these would be guilt free so as I was making pancakes I was also baking cookies – watch out Martha! In this case the poster had taken the recipe and posted without giving credit to the original creator which just isn’t cool. The original genius behind these cookies is Texan Erin – go check out the recipe you wont regret it!

I actually followed the recipe to the letter which is rare for me. I wanted to make sure they were good before I started messing with substitions! I;m thinking of using sunflower seed butter to make them nut-free and school safe as the kids LOVED them! They were perfectly chewy and delicious and it’s taking all the strength I have not to make (and eat) another batch right now! My DietBet ends tomorrow (I’m SO close to my goal!!) so that’s keeping me in check – perhaps a celebratory batch of cookies!!
