Chickpea Peanut Butter Cookies

I have had this recipe in my stash for several months now…but I never seem to get it on my blog before I have eaten all of the cookies! I will admit…I was super skeptical, chickpeas in cookies? I was certain that this healthy version of chocolate chip cookies wouldn’t go over well with my non-gluten free, refined sugar free friends..but I was wrong!  I have made this recipe a few times now, altering it each time to try different variations, and each time, it’s a huge hit! So now…it’s time to share the delicious, super easy and healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe, MADE FROM CHICKPEAS!

I posted a similar recipe a few months back, the chickpea peanut butter coconut bars  are one of the variations I tried from this cookie recipe…and although I liked them…I have a special place in my heart for cookies. Something about having all the flavors compacted into two little bites, that makes a cookie so satisfying.

There are many different facets of interest in my personal and professional life. My passion for baking has developed over the past several years; I love the satisfaction of sharing my delicious treats with friends and family. My sweet tooth, and love of baking is quite contradictory of my profession. I am a dentist, and currently a post-doctoral student, studying a dental specialty. My other interest is health and fitness...again...quite controversial of my baked goods..but, I believe....all things in moderation. I enjoy running and working out, and even making healthy entrees for my husband and I. After following several other food blogs, I decided, that this would be a new hobby. I am passionate about everything I take part in, and hope that you enjoy this blog and that it inspires you to make each day delicious with homemade prepared meals....and desserts :)

    These cookies are AMAZING! I know this may sound crazy, but I like these cookies more than I like regular chocolate chip cookies with all the butter and sugar (and if you know me, you know that I’m no health nut!) Thank you for posting this DELICIOUS recipe, Sheena!
