Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies

I have really fallen in love with using my food processor lately. I have made this recipe many times before, but I never fully appreciated the ease of letting the machine do the work for me until now.
It is especially nice with gluten free recipes. Using chickpeas instead of flour also adds to the easiness (not to mention the health) of this recipe, and it is just another reason to love it.

These cookies taste amazing, have a great, soft texture, and are a great way to add some fiber and protein to your diet (still eating in moderation, of course). I have been having fun experimenting with different variations of the recipe, so you can look forward to more posts of chickpea desserts soon!
