Description

This recipe cuts down on the loads of saturated fat found in most cookie recipes, while packing in fiber and protein to keep you satisfied for longer.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas  
  • ½ cup smooth cashew butter, unsalted  
  • 1 tsp. vanilla 
  • ½ cup brown sugar  
  • ½ tsp. salt  
  • ½ tsp. baking soda  
  • ½ tsp. baking powder  
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup dried Michigan cherries 
  • Spray canola oil  

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. For an especially smooth texture, peel the chickpeas by placing them between a towel and rubbing, then removing the peels.

  2. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until the cookies have browned along the edges. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
