A friend of mine made these today for dessert. Surprisingly, they were VERY delicious...my kids loved them. I just had to ask for the recipe! So, here it is. Hope you'll like them:)

Ingredients:
•1can (1 1/2 cup) low sodium chickpeas, drained. Or boil your own.
•1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter (or other nut butter of your choice)
•1/4 cup non or lowfat plain greek yogurt
•1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
•2 teaspoon vanilla extract
•1/8 teaspoon baking powder
•6 teaspoon splenda (or other no calorie sweetner

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°
2. Combine all the ingredients, except for the choco chips, in a blender and blend on high until smooth.
3. Scoop 2 tbsp at a time onto a sprayed cookie sheet. Flatten the cookies with the back of a spoon.
4. Bake for about 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 14 cookies

**the raw cookie dough can be eaten as a spread for fruits & veggies**

I am starting a diet starring beans, including chick peas. Ineed to ear 1 cup of beans a day. This could help me get my bean quota and also be lower in calories. Thanks for the recipe.

Really? You don't like spenda?  I like it better than nutrasweet or saccharine.  I've recently started using stevia though.

Well, lets face it nothing tastes as good as good old sugar.   Except maybe, honey and that's a form of sugar too.

 Same here. I'd reather just take a smaller portion of something with real sugar or just not have it than use artificial sweetener.
