“This is a joke! Those ingredients can’t possibly make that.” I just love a recipe that offers this kind of baffled amusement. These choc-chip cookies contain none of your ordinary cookie ingredients; no flour, no milk, no eggs, no sugar, no butter… So what do they have? A bunch of stuff even the wackiest cook wouldn’t dare experiment with while hoping to see some success by afternoon tea time. But somehow, they work.
Below is my reproduced and simplified version of that recipe.
- 400g can of chickpeas
-2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Method: Rinse and drain the chickpeas then pat them dry (an important step I ignored the first time around to my own detriment). Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor and blend until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Place spoonfuls of the mixture on greased baking trays. Bake for about 10 minutes in a 175 degree oven.
SO EASY! And kind of healthy-ish.
