Chickpea, Peanut Butter and Choc Chip Cookies

pbcookiesR_IMG_0195I apologize in advance for the deliciousness of these little morsels! They are such a good treat high in protein, low in sugar and very filling. The only problem is they taste so good it’s really hard to stop even when you are full!! I like to make these on a rainy day when my family is home so they can help eat them. Enjoy.

  • ½ cup natural peanut butter (no added sugar, salt or oil)
