Finally a Finished Christmas Tree and Chickpea Cookies

There are other adjectives I could put in front of chickpea, but there are so many I just decided to leave it at that.  They are really peanut butter banana oatmeal chickpea cookies, but whatevs.  I’ll get to these in a second.

After a harrowing attempt at putting up my Christmas tree last night, it is finally completed.  Let’s just say don’t buy cheap lights.  There is a reason why they are cheap.  After decorating my tree, un-decorating my tree, going back to target, and redecorating my tree, it’s finally Christmas at my house.

Now, for the important part.

These cookies are so easy to make-especially if you have a food processor.  Dump the following into your food processor:

1 can of chickpeas

2 tablespoons of peanut butter (natural or homemade is best)

2 tablespoons of PB2 (Read about PB2)

1/4 cup of plain greek yogurt

A few squeezes of agave syrup (I don’t like my cookies super sweet, so I don’t use too much) OR 1/4 cup of brown sugar

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

2 tablespoons of cinnamon

1 tablespoon of vanilla flavor

1/2 cup of oats

1/4 cup of almond milk

Process to this consistency.

Use a spatula to put the dough in bowl.  Mix in some chocolate chips.

You can always just eat it with a spoon and forget the oven (like I do).

Spoon the dough onto a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for about ten minutes.

This cookie dough can be doctored up with all kinds of things. I threw a banana in there for my last batch.  Gave it a little pop!
