SmartPoints: 1


3/4 cup(s) canned drained chickpeas, rinsed and drained 3 Tbsp creamy peanut butter with omega-3 1/3 cup(s) dark brown sugar 1 tsp low fat cream cheese 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/4 tsp table salt 1/8 tsp baking soda 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour 2 Tbsp peanut butter chips 2 Tbsp powdered sugar 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Combine chickpeas, peanut butter, brown sugar, cream cheese, vanilla extract, salt and baking soda in a food processor; process until completely smooth. Add flour and peanut butter chips; pulse until just combined. Refrigerate until mixture is chilled, at least 1 hour.
  2. Using a melon baller, scoop cookie dough mixture into 36 small balls; gently place in a mixing bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, sift together powdered sugar and cocoa powder; remove 2 tablespoons of sugar mixture and gently toss with chilled cookie dough bites (reserve remaining sugar mixture).
  4. Arrange coated bites on a serving platter and keep chilled until ready to serve; dust with remaining sugar mixture just before serving. Yields 1 cookie per serving.


Pureed chickpeas add protein and fiber to these cookies. Try them in blondies, date-nut bread, or chocolate chip cookies.
