So what do you do when you are craving peanut butter cookies, but can't eat peanut butter? Or even eat eggs? You hit the internet. I found an interesting option that I adjusted to our family.
You will need:
- 1 cup of Sunbutter (or other sunbutter brand..even make your own. We do)..You can use almond butter or peanut butter if you do not have an allergy.
- 2 can chick peas, drained, rinsed and patted dry
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt (unless your nut butter contains salt..be careful then)
- 1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips (sometimes I add a little more)
I put all the ingredients in the food processor and started mixing. Makes a very smooth paste. Fold the chocolate chips in last.
Used a cookie scoop and it was nice and thick. Bake them at 350 for about 8-10 minutes. Don't overbake. I usually stick to about 8 minutes. I let them cool on the sheet while I put another batch in. Then use a spatula to remove them carefully on to a cooling rack. If moved too much when they are warm, they tend to fall apart. Baked a batch and thought they needed to be a little sweeter.
Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!!!
