Fit Foodie Finds --- sent in by Susan

A handy, easy and nutritious snack!


350 ml 1 1/2 cups chickpeas (garbanzo beans) cooked
120 ml1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter, smooth
79 ml1/3 cup honey
1 ml1/4 tsp cinnamon
5 ml1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
300 ml1 1/4 cup ground oat flour
79 ml1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


First place chickpeas, peanut butter, and honey in a food processor and blend for about a minute on high or until the mixture is smooth.

Then, add in cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt, and oat flour, and pulse until combined. At this point your dough should be similar to cookie dough consistency. If things are too dry, add more peanut butter, if things are too wet, add more ground oat flour.

Add in chocolate chips and pulse until combined.

Finally, using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll between your palms to form a ball. Repeat. Store in the fridge or freezer!
