Healthy cookies? Yup they are! And they're hummus based! The other good thing is that you can call the batter hummus and eat it all before baking lol! They’re also totally flourless and made with chickpeas soooooo you’re basically eating beans AKA they’re basically health food like I said above haha.
Recipe type: Snack/Dessert
Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 12 mins Total time: 22 mins
Serves: 16 cookies
Peanut Butter Banana Chickpea Cookies
1-15oz can chickpeas, vey well rinsed and drained
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 small, very overripe banana
2 tsp vanilla extract
⅓ cup coconut sugar*
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp cinnamon
⅓ cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray (or line with parchment paper or Silipat) and set aside.
Make sure to rinse the chickpeas well so they don't taste beany.
Shake off the excess water before dumping them into a large food processor.
Add in the rest of the ingredients (except chocolate chips).
Process for a full two minutes, or until batter is very smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides. Stir in chocolate chips.
With wet hands, spoon batter onto cookie sheet. It will be very wet and sticky (like hummus). You can use your wet hands to pat them down into smooth cookies. You should have about 16.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Store cooled cookies in the refrigerator.
