Cookie Chick (pea)

I wouldn’t consider myself a health nut, and I haven’t jumped on the “gluten free” craze just yet either. However, I’m a fan of cookies of all shapes, sizes and ingredients (especially when it includes chocolate). So when I saw a chickpea cookie recipe, I decided to give it a go.

Seems weird, yes, but these actually turned out to be quite delicious. I’m not sure I’d trade them in for a traditional chocolate chip cookie, but considering this little dough ball has no flour, white sugar, or eggs, it could be a “healthier” alternative.

The oozing, gooey chocolate was the killer for me. It was a perfect compliment to the chunky peanut butter. I’m actually quite surprised that I managed to snap a picture before I devoured them.

I found the recipe here in case you are feeling rather adventurous, too.
