  • Place the chickpeas in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place all other ingredients EXCEPT chocolate chips/crushed almonds/raisons/medjool dates ( if using any of these) inside and combine well.
  • Stir through the chocolate chips etc. with a spoon. Roll mixture into balls and place on the tray. Press down using fork forming a cookie shape
  • Bake in the oven until golden brown ( takes between 11-15 mins). I like mine slightly underdone in the middle, so my advice would be to bake it for 11 mins, then if you prefer them a little more done bake for an extra few mins.
  • Allow to cool slightly before storing!
