Guilt-Free-Oh-So-Delicious Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

  Okay Bodyrockers: clean eating. Tough amirite?! If you're anything like the junk-food-junkie I am, you're always looking for that sweet or salty fix without compromising all the work you put in to your workouts.
These may look like they'll ruin all your hard work- but they're actually packed with protein deliciousness
What if I told you I have a magic recipe for delicious cookies loaded with protein, iron, fibre and no guilt? Sorcery! (But actually....I question it myself...) These babies are dairy, gluten and egg free - they can even be vegan friendly with a couple quick changes! What You Need:
  • 2.5 cups of drained chickpeas
  • 1 cup of nut butter of choice (I like a combo of Cashew and Almond butter best)
  • 1/2 cup of raw honey (switch to your sweetener of choice if going vegan)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 tbs of pure vanilla extract
  • as many 70% dark chocolate chips as your heart desires (you can use vegan chocolate chips as well!)
Prep and Bake:
  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Mash chickpeas until most of the lumps and bumps are out (if you have a good blender, you can use it!)
  • Add in nut butter, honey, baking powder, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir stir stir until consistency is sticky and smooth
  • Add in chocolate chips and stir some more!
  • Place parchment paper on a baking sheet
  • With a spoon, scoop small clumps of the batter on to the baking sheet (just like you would with normal cookie dough!)
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes
  • Remove from oven and refrigerate (this helps them meld together better)
Note: these cookies are super moist! I find the texture to be the best when they stay refrigerated Viola! And there you have it! Delicious, healthy and feels like such an epic cheat treat. What could possibly be better? If you have a chance, I'd love to hear what you thought of this recipe! rock_butt3_1024x1024   Get Our Bodyrock Butt Book and Rock Your Diet Guide here!
