Grain Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

That is quite the cookie name eh?  While browsing Pinterest last week, I found this recipe.   Texanerin Baking recently posted these healthy option cookies on her blog.  The part that was very intriguing to me was the ingredients, or lack thereof.  No flour, no oil, no white sugar...BUT they do contain chick peas!!  The picture looked great, and I'll be honest, I was just plain curious to see if they were as yummy as Texanerin claimed them to be.  

My conclusion would be, oh yes!!!!  They are very yummy!!  I would definitely make them again... and again for a healthier, sweet treat option.  

1 1/4C chickpeas (rinsed and patted dry)
2 tsp vanilla
1/2C + 2 tbsp Peanut Butter
1/4C honey
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt if your PB doesn't have salt in it
1/2C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine all ingredients except for chocolate chips in a food processor.  Process until smooth.  Scrape the sides of the processor, add the chocolate chips and stir or pulse a couple times.  Mixture will be very thick and sticky.  With wet hands form into 1 1/2" balls.  Place on parchment paper.  Press down with a fork if you like.  They do not raise.  Bake for 10 minutes.  ( I left them in for about 13 min)  Yield:  At least 14 cookies

I would say they are better warm.  So just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds.  Just long enough for some gooey chocolate chips.  :0)
