These chickpea cookies were delicious. Loved the idea of using chick pea instead of flour, which made the cookies packed with protein.

Peanut butter, honey and chick peas were a yummy combination with some chocolate chips mixed in.

These cookies were healthy yet tasty!

The chickpea ingredients seems out of place with a cookie, but the photo looks amazing! Can't wait to try this healthy recipe.

Thanks, Shannon! I know, when I first time saw the chickpea cookies, I had the same feeling, chickpea in the cookies? But they actually came out delicious, and they are way healthier than most of our everyday cookies! Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as we do :)

Just made these! Cookies taste amazing! Only problem - since we have to use Wow Butter instead of peanut butter, something else is needed to make them stick together - they are too crumbly and fall apart! Suggestions?

Glad that you loved the taste of these cookies. I think there must be something to do with the wow butter that is not as sticky as peanut butter that supposes to bind everything together. If you have no problem to use eggs, I would suggest to add one egg into the batter to make the dough stickier. Hope this helps. Happy Baking :)
