      Ingredients



      • 1¼ cups canned
        chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel

      • 2 teaspoons
        vanilla extract

      • ½ cup + 2
        tablespoons (165 grams) natural
        peanut butter, SunButter
        Natural or almond butter - room temperature

      • ¼ cup (80
        grams) honey (commenter's have used agave and maple syrup
        with success!)

      • 1 teaspoon
        baking powder

      • a pinch of salt
        if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it

      • ½ cup (90
        grams) chocolate chips (use vegan
        and dairy-free chocolate chips, if needed)


      Directions



      1. Preheat
        your oven to 350°F / 175°C. Combine all the ingredients, except for the
        chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure
        to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and
        process again until they're combined.

      2. Put
        in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The
        mixture will be very thick and sticky.

      3. With
        wet hands, form into 1½" balls. Place onto a Silpat or a piece of parchment
        paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly
        on the balls. They don't do much rising.

      4. Bake
        for about 10 minutes. The dough balls will still be very soft when you take
        them out of the oven. They will not set like normal cookies.

      5. Store
        in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the fridge) for up to 1
        week.
