These are seriously so great! Thanks for posting! (and BTW - chickpeas and garbanzo beans are the same thing if you're searching the grocery aisle for them...) Also, after making these again, I realize that I pureed the beans last time, makes a much better cookie I think than the whole beans.
These were so good! I had to toss the chickpeas and sugar mixture in the blender to make it smoothe. The cookies had a wonderful flavor ...my 13 month old LOVED them! So did I. They don't spread much when baking though. Next time I will flatten them just a little, so that we don't end up with deceptively delicious um biscuits! Thanks!
My kids loved this cookie and begged for seconds and thirds. I used the whole egg because I was too lazy to separate and I also tried it with mint chocolate chips. Awesome!
