Healthy Chocolate  Chip Cookies

WP_20130627_002

So what makes them healthy you ask?  Chickpeas.  A few years back I received “Deceptively Delicious” by Jessica Seinfeld as a gift and have since found ways to hide veggies/fruits/beans etc in my meals.

The book has many wonderfully deceptive recipes and though I like my children to try foods as a whole (i.e. not hidden in their meals) I also like to squeeze in extra goodness when I can.

I’ve altered the original recipe to suit my needs and it is as follows;

  • few tbl of maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 15 oz can of chick peas
  • 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips (though 1 cup would be plenty)
  • 2 cups wholewheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashion oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cups raisins, nuts (optional)

preheat oven to 350F

blend the honey, butter, eggs, vanilla, chick peas

combine the dry ingredients in a bowl

add the wet to the dry, fold in the chocolate chips, use your hands to form a dough if needed

drop a tablespoonful of dough on a cookie sheet (greased depending on the type), flatten with a fork and bake about 11-13 mins.

 

enjoy!!
