These clever cookies are made using chickpeas and a combination of chocolate and nuts to make them taste incredibly indulgent.

Ingredients

Chickpeas, cooked

130 g

Smooth Peanut Butter

30 g

Vanilla Extract

1 teaspoons, level

Date(s), dried

65 g, Medjool dates, pitted and finely chopped

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw

Walnut Halves

20 g, finely chopped

Dark Chocolate

25 g, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Put the chickpeas, peanut butter, vanilla extract, dates and egg into a food processor with a pinch of salt, and blitz until a thick batter forms. Add half the walnuts and chocolate and pulse 2-3 times until just combined.
  3. Drop small tablespoonfuls of the batter onto the baking tray, leaving enough space in between for the cookies to expand when baking. Flatten slightly with the back of the spoon, then top with the remaining walnuts and chocolate, lightly pressing them into the cookie batter.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden, then let cool on a wire rack before serving.

Notes

The cookies will keep in an airtight container for up to five days.
