PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH BITES
**SHARE so it will save in your timeline**
1 1/4 cups canned* chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter (can use PB2 from gym to make healthier, check your labels)
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave would be amazing too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder**
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips
* My can was a 400 gram can, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons
** If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.
Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re combined.
Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
With wet hands, form into 1 1/2_ balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don’t do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes.
Yields about fourteen 1 1/2_ cookie dough balls.
*** Don't even try with regular peanut butter! They'll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter.

Looking forward to trying this recipe. I've never had cookies made with chickpeas!

that's crazy! I'm def gonna try it! Need gluten free and I can't tolerate almond flour which is all the rage in gf. Also, hubby is doing paleo, do you think almond or cashew butter would work?

Sun butter works.Did you try it?!!!
So the recipe also works without putting honey in it.....Spaceshot Kitty forgot to put in the honey last batch and the cookies still were good a little crumbly....I did put in extra chocolate chips in them though

Greg had previously made that or a very similar recipe with the sun butter substitution, being that I am allergic to nuts.
