Butterscotch Chip Chickpea Cookies

Chickpea cookies are one of my favorite things ever. They are soft, moist and delicious, and you would never guess that they have beans in them if you didn't know otherwise. They are filled with fiber and protein, and yet they are the perfect, sweet dessert.

These butterscotch chip chickpea cookies are especially good. They are just as soft as any other chickpea cookie, and the butterscotch chips give them a rich, sweet flavor. If you haven't tried making chickpea cookies for yourself yet, then now is your chance. Bake up a batch of these cookies, and I know you'll love them.
