Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s time I share with you, these delicious cookies I made. The best thing about these cookies are they are rather healthy. You will not believe what they are made with. No eggs, no oil, no butter, and no flour. Seriously. Can it get any worst better than that? Maybe. These cookies are made with Chickpeas! Seriously.

Are you a cookie dough eater? I’m not because my daddy always warned us about eating raw eggs. I thought I’d die if did. But again, this dough has no eggs or any dairy product for that matter so if cookie dough is your thing, grab a bowl and dig in. 

They are Gluten free, low sugar and grain free. They can even be made vegan if you change up the recipe a bit such as using vegan chocolate chips or maple syrup instead of honey. In fact, the original recipe is vegan. But hey, I’m not vegan and I didn’t have maple syrup so I’m sticking with this recipe. 

Don’t snarl your nose up until you have tired it. They are absolutely delicious. You can not taste the chickpeas at all and if you didn’t know it, you would never guess it’s in them. These cookies are also full of protein. Now I don’t feel guilty when I eat ten four. 

Chickpea Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Can chickpeas (rinse and drain)
1/2 Cup peanut butter
1/3 Cup Honey
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 Cup chocolate chips.(or more).

Put all ingredients except chocolate chips into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a greased or lined cookie sheet. (They do not rise or spread but do fluff some)
Bake on 350 for 20 minutes.

These cookies come out firm on the bottom and soft and gooey throughout. 
I plan to make more of these to share with family as they taste as good as any other homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Finally February

Wow it’s finally February. Thank goodness! I am behind on my blogging, but hey, It is my blog so there are no deadlines. Right?

January was crazy for me. It started off with me having a procedure done to remove a small cancer cell from my forehead. Then I had my first job interview. After that, I was having dinner at Jackson’s Cafeteria and bit down on piece of fat back and broke a noticeable tooth in half. This caused me to have a weekend without a smile then resulted in a dentist appointment to have a crown. This was all before I had to have a new hire photo made. Luckily I was able to have it fixed before I went. I start work next week. 

Then I was called from another place that I had applied for (not ready to tell it yet) to come take a reading and math exam. I was skeered. I am not good at reading, spelling or math. But I passed, was fingerprinted, photographed and an unexpected 1st interview. I will know in a couple weeks if I need to come in for a 2nd interview. Meanwhile I will keep working at my new part time job and later decisions might have to be made.

I have also been suffering from my Meniere's the past couple weeks. It is a never ending battle. I never know when I wake up in the mornings if I will have a good day or a bad day. The fullness, pressure, dizziness, and ringing in my ear drives me crazy at times. This also leads to hearing loss during an episode. I can’t concentrate, hence why I haven't done much blogging. 

There are days I do not feel like getting dressed or leaving the house. I never know when a vertigo attack will happen and its scary. This is a big concern of mine for when I start my new job. I will have to keep pushing my self through my episodes and hope no one notices or that I don't fall out. 
This is an invisible problem. On the outside I look completely well. No one can see me screaming inside or how tired and stressed it makes me. They do not know the struggles and concerns I am faced with every single day. I can’t even talk about it because no one understands. It’s going on 5 years now.

I hope February is easier on me and I can finally get my working life back together. I can’t hardly wait to get back out there and make money and make new friends. 

Meanwhile, stay tuned. I just managed to make some awesome cookies I plan to share next!
