Chocolate Chip And M&M Chickpea Cookies

Soft, moist and packed with chocolate, these chocolate chip and M&M chickpea cookies are sure to be a big hit.

This recipe is great for Christmastime when you want to feel a bit better about yourself and all of the treats that you are eating, or for any time of the year when you want to munch on something a bit healthier than the average cookie.

Don't let yourself feel afraid to make these because of the use of chickpeas. I promise that you won't taste them. These cookies taste just as good - if not better - than the average cookie.
