I know what you’re thinking…chickpeas???  

Chickpeas…great for making hummus, but used for making chocolate chip cookies???

These cookies are so chocolatey and chewy you’ll never know they were made with chickpeas, I promise!

I’ll be honest, even I was skeptical of using a whole cup and a half of chickpeas in this recipe! These chickpea cookies are loaded with folic acid, fiber, iron, zinc, copper, manganese and protein…you can’t say that for your standard chocolate chip cookie that uses butter, white sugar and white flour as the base!  Plus, they are gluten free, vegan and grain free!

Depending on how much cookie dough you eat…this recipe makes 22-24 cookies.
