Super Gooey Peanut Butter Chocolate Drops
How do you make cookies healthier? Add fiber and protein! Our surprising secret ingredient in these peanut butter chocolate treats is chickpeas. You’ll taste rich and yummy flavors while you benefit from the goodness of garbanzo beans. Shhh—the kids won’t suspect a thing!
- 1/2 cup O Organics® crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup chickpeas (drained, rinsed and dried with a paper towel)
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup raw or organic honey
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375º. In a food processor, add peanut butter, chickpeas, cocoa powder, honey, and baking powder. Process until smooth. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and process again until a thick dough-like consistency forms.
Stir in dark chocolate chips. Scoop out into tablespoon-sized dough balls onto a baking sheet covered in parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Press each down a little in the center to form a small cookie-shape (but chocolate drop should still be puffy, not flat).
Bake for 10 minutes. Chocolate drops will have a "crackled" appearance on top but will still be gooey in the middle. Don't overtake them! Remove and let cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
