KITCHEN VIRGINS: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't think I'll ever eat "regular" chocolate chip cookies again. This kitchen virgin tested out a healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe courtesy of Pinterest. It's been hanging around my board for over a month and I had some free time so I decided it was time to give it a shot. 

You'll need:

  • 1 can of chickpeas (drain, rinse and dry)
  • 1/2 a cup and 2 tablespoons of almond butter (or a nut butter of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch of salt (if it's not in your nut butter)

Preheat your over at 350 while you put all of your ingredients except for the chocolate chips in the food processor. Process until you get a smooth mixture then toss in the chocolate chips and pulse two or three times. Next up, grab a cookie pan and line it with some parchment paper (or as I like to call it - magic f*cking paper). Wet your hands and start rolling the cookie dough into balls. You have the option of leaving them to be little cookie bites or you can flatten them with a spatula (I just used my hands) to get that cookie shape. 

After 15 minutes in the oven, take them out and put them on a cooling wrack. I will warn you that they'll be quite soft since they don't set like other cookies. Enjoy at room temperature or refrigerated.

 I'm giving this recipe a 20/10 because they were just that good. Wishing you the best of luck with this recipe and I'll see you back here very soon!
