Chickpea Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are the best! A sweet treat you'll feel good about after you have one….or two, or three. Don't let the chickpeas scare you away because you won't notice them and they boost the protein and fiber content providing a yummy but nutrient dense snack. They are good by themselves or with a cup of tea or coffee or a cold glass of plant based milk.
These are a game changer when it comes to a sweet treat…..give this recipe a try, bet you'll love them like I do!
