Chickpea Peanut Butter Cookies

I am so excited to share my kids favorite chickpea peanut butter cookies with only four ingredients. These cookies are so easy to make, that my twin eight year old girls made it on their own. Not only is it easy to make, but you will be surprised to see that we didn’t use flour or eggs. These cookies are gluten free and can be vegan if you swap out the honey with maple syrup. The main ingredient is chickpeas, but you don’t really taste them. Chickpeas are really bland in flavor and so the peanut and honey overpower it in the cookie. What’s great about the using chickpeas besides the health benefits, but it actually keeps the cookie moist yet firm. The little bit of oats I add is to mainly absorb some liquid since all the other three ingredients are wet. If you love peanut butter my chickpea peanut butter cookies will hit the spot for you!
