Ryker and cookies

My cousin Ryker got into town a couple of weeks ago.
It's kind of a tradition that we always try out a new recipe together.
Usually it's some sort of a cookie or cake, I wasn't sure what we would be
able to make since I'm trying to eat good.
I came across the recipe a while back, I'm not sure where, I 
think a magazine and I have been wanting to try it.
I was definitely hesitant on this recipe for the sheer fact that the main ingredient was
chickpeas!
But we decided to forge ahead and try them anyway.
So....how did they turn out?......
They were really good! I was absolutely shocked!
You definitley have to eat them straight out of the oven or heat up in
the microwave because cold they weren't that great.
I will definitely make these again!


Chocolate Chip Cookie Fakes
Ingredients

1 1/4 cups canned chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn't have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they're combined. Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick. Form into 1 1/2" balls. Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don't do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes. Yields about fourteen 1 1/2" cookie dough balls.
