Chocolate Mint Chickpea Cookies

My current obsession? Those garbanzo cookie balls. Yes, still. What has been fun is seeing how many others love them too – how have I never seen these when people have been making them all along?

I’m always late to the party. I have brought others along to the party since, though. I’ve also thought up some pretty interesting flavor combinations. I have a lot to catch you all up on.

For my latest flavor, I looked for mint chocolate chips, and could not find any that were vegan, or without dairy. I do have readily available fresh mint, however.

fresh mint & chocolate chickpea cookie balls

1 can chickpeas, rinsed and peeled
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon flour (I used peanut flour!)
8 – 10 drops NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia
water as needed
1 dark chocolate bar, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
4-5 fresh mint leaves, chopped or ripped

In food processor or blender, puree chickpeas. Add peanut butter, flour and stevia, blend. It should form a ball of dough, if it is still crumbly, add a tiny amount of water, a teaspoon at a time. Process – it should quickly form a dough ball.

Stirring by hand, add chocolate and mint. Form into 1-inch balls. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

You have to eat one warm from the oven. Melty chocolatey minty delicious.

The original chocolate chip flavor tastes fabulous as is. The mint flavor adds a layer of freshness that any mint-chocolate fan will love. The nutritional stats aren’t too shabby either (for two cookies). Look at that fiber!
