Chocolate Chickpea Cookies

These cookies have a deep chocolate flavor, are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and are relatively healthy at that. Well, compared with other cookies, anyway.

When you feel like indulging in a good, chocolate cookie without all of the guilt, these chocolate chickpea cookies are just the thing for you! 

The pictures look so good that I am tempted to make them again soon. Like, right now.

  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine drained chickpeas, butter, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder and salt.. Blend, scraping down sides occasionally, until smooth. If the batter appears dry, add one tablespoon of milk and blend again.

  1. My favorite cupcakes are made with black beans, and I've been toying with the idea of baking something using chickpeas. These look perfect! Plus, who can say no to chocolate? ;)
