Healthy Cookie Recipe

How much do kids love baking? Stirring, pouring and especially, licking the spoon!

Here is a Mom-approved AND kid-approved recipe. A real winner all around filled with fiber, protein and chocolate chips. It’s gluten free and dairy free for those with sensitivities or allergies.

This recipe calls for peanuts but can easily be substituted with almonds/almond butter or sunflowers/sunflower butter.

CHICKPEA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 – 14-ounce can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed (or 1 3/4 cups of cooked chickpeas)
  • 1 cup smooth, all-natural organic peanut butter 
  • 1/2 cup agave, maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup organic vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. Add drained chickpeas and maple syrup to a food processor or high-powered blender (don’t use a regular blender) and blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly blended. The batter will be sticky, don’t worry.
  4. Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  5. Can freeze in air tight container for later! But tastes great when warm out of the oven!
