I found the idea for these easy, soft and moist, and healthy gluten-free peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies while browsing on facebook one day and eventually found out that the recipe was created by Erin at Texanerin Baking. Egg-free and flour-free too, they contain cooked chickpeas that end up like a flour-based dough after they are whizzed up in a food processor with other ingredients. The dominating flavor is the peanut butter combined with the chocolate resulting in a pleasant rather unstated sweetness from the presence of the raw honey. Do I really need to note that one of life's sweet pleasures is peanut butter paired with chocolate?
They truly are heavenly and guilt-free too, despite the rich flavor experience that awaits you. If you were fortunate enough to grow up in a household where homemade cookies were often made, you will be nostalgic for those bits of raw cookie dough that you sneaked on the sly before you were granted permission to lick the bowl. Again, no need to feel guilty about snacking on some of the dough even before they go into the oven. Nothing bad here at all. These cookies stay moist in a sealed container for several days too, although keeping them around for several days isn't all that likely.
