Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter or coconut oil softened
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 15 oz can of chickpeas rinsed & drained
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp warm water optional
  • 2 cup light spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1.5 cup dark chocolate chips, unsweetened dried cranberries or raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Blend chickpeas in a blender or mini food processor with the eggs & vanilla. Add a tablespoon of warm water if needed to get a smooth consistency
  • In a large bowl, combine the butter or coconut oil and sugar. Lightly beat with an electric mixer.
  • Cream together the chickpea mixture.
  • Add the flour, oats, baking soda and sea salt and beat again at a medium speed to form a thick dough. Add chocolate chips...or unsweetened cranberries or raisins if you wish.
  • Bake cookies for 8 – 10 minutes depending on how soft or hard you like your cookies. We like them all soft and gooey, so 8 minutes is usually perfect. Once the cookies are finished baking, pull them from the oven and allow them to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
