Grain Free & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies - Pocketful of Sugar

It’s not an oxymoron or a typo, folks. These Chocolate Chip Cookies really are healthy! They’re grain-free, gluten-free, and actually packed with energy. They’re also nearly guilt-free (sans chocolate chips). The secret ingredient? Chickpeas! Health nuts, rejoice! Here’s my Grain Free & Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe:

INGREDIENTS:

1 16-oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and patted dry

2 tbsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup regular peanut butter OR 1/2 cup natural peanut butter

1/4 cup agave or honey

1 tsp cornstarch

1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients, except chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.

2. With wet hands, form dough into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls. Place on a greased baking sheet and slightly press the balls to flatten the top. Bake for 12-15 minutes and let them cool on the pan for about 5 minutes. ENJOY your healthy snack!

[Yields about a dozen cookies]

  1. This totally scares me, but I would definitely be willing to try it! I’ve made black bean brownies and they were decent so who knows!
