Chocolatey Chickpea Cookies

Can you believe this cookies are mostly made of chickpeas?? That’s right! They are incredibly delicious, ooey-gooey and rich in flavor-and do not taste like beans!  My kids loved these so much, they kept asking for second and I didn’t feel guilty to give them two!  In case you haven’t noticed, chickpeas are a major food sensation.  Used in everything from my favorite @eatbanza chickpea pasta to desserts like these cookies!  Gluten-free, no refined sugar and eggless, no oil or butter.  Give them a try! and share with others! They will not be able to guess the “secret” ingredient 🙂
