Peanut Butter, Chocolate, and ……… Garbanzo Beans? What the?

Ok. So I LOVE peanut butter. And I LOVE chocolate. Sooooo put them together in a cookie? My day is MADE!

But since I’m trying to cut the refined sugar and flour… how can I make this yummy concoction work out? Isn’t that our goal as we try to become healthier? Configure the recipes we like NOW— to fit our new mantra? Yep. Thats what I do anyway… I’m not one for the tofu scrambled eggs, tofurkey for Thanksgiving, and a triscuit with a sliced strawberry for a snack… I mean, REALLY?

So…. I’m going to share with you today one of my ALL time favorite cookie recipes that has…….
get this……..


What are these cookies you say?
The Original Yumminess = Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Bites
Here is the link to the Original Recipe

Here is how I make it….

1 can of garbanzo beans/Chickpeas, drained, patted dry
1/2 c natural peanut butter, + 2 Tbsp
1/4 c. honey, I use RAW
1 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup, dark chocolate, milk free mini chocolate chips (regular will work, I just like these little babies.)
2 tsp vanilla

Step one. Open your can of Garbanzo beans………..

2: Mash them with a potato masher, then pour them into a bowl.

3: Then add the remaining ingredients, and mix til its all well blended.

4: I use a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop to put them on the pan, and they dont spread, so I can put them fairly close together (I’m all about saving time, energy, and washing. 🙂 ). Bake at 350 F for about 10 minutes, let them cool slightly on a cooling rack, and enjoy!!
