Would you trust me if I tell you you can make the perfect chocolate chip cookies with out any type of flour? Yes I said NO FLOUR.
For this recipe all you need is a can of chickpeas and a good quality peanut butter, they are SOOO good and fluffy you will never think of using flour in your cookies again! Made just with natural and whole foods ingredients! You will never taste the difference between these chickpea cookies from a regular cookie.
The best thing about this cookies besides their flavour is that they have no complicated ingredients and they are:
This is how your batter should look like before popping them into the oven a sticky but very delicious batter.
Flourless Chocolate Chip Cookies
Prep Time: 10 min
Cooking Time:12-14 min
1- 14 onz. can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained ( Alternately 2 Cups if chickpeas).
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup maple syrup or agave
2-3 Tbsp cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup hemp seeds or flaxseeds (optional)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup dark chocolate chips (85% at least), chopped
Preheat oven to 350ºF / 175º C and line a baking sheet with parchment or baking paper.
Add drained chickpeas, hemp seeds, vanilla, baking soda, sugar, peanut butter and maple or agave syrup in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Transfer mixture into a bowl and add chocolate chips and with a spatula fold until well combined. ( The batter will be very sticky)
Drop 2 full tablespoons of batter into the prepared baking sheet and shape your cookies. Bake for 12-14 min. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 min.
Tips: When baking time is finished cookies will seem very soft and not thoroughly cook but after the 10 min cool off period they will thicken up and become very fluffy and moist! (Do not keep cooking any further if looking soft this will burn the chocolate and cookie top.)
