Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies GLUTEN FREE & SUGAR FREE – I always love to share my favorite recipes with my friends and since it is a long weekend I am sure you are looking for some fun recipes for the Labor Day weekend. Here is one I have tried twice and have tweaked to make my own. Check it out. It is so good even my 9 year old is asking for more. You would never know there is no sugar or flour in it. 

Here is the recipe for my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies – adapted from someone on the internet – I cannot find the original author so I will attribute it to a recipe I found on the CafeMom Forum. Recipe was changed based on what I had in my kitchen cupboards so this is my recipe adapted.

Ingredients –

1 1/4 cup of organic garbanzo beans not canned from Whole Foods washed and drained

1/2 cup of crunchy salted peanut butter from Whole Foods

1/4 cup of vanilla flavored agave – here is the one I use Madhava Organic Vanilla Agave, 11.75-Ounce (Pack of 6)

1 teaspoon of baking powder – if you need gluten free options – here is one I like - Hain Baking Powder, Gluten Free, Sodium Free, 8 oz

1/2 cup carob chips or chocolate chips

Add all ingredients into your food processor except the chocolate chips and ground up all the ingredients until uniform and add chocolate chips and mix. Create 1 tablespoon size balls and flatten onto a parchment baking sheet and bake for 11 minutes. Let stand for 5 to 10 minute to cool and enjoy.

These cookies are so good you will not believe they do not have granulated sugar, flour, or eggs. And the plus is your get a boost of protein and fiber with the garbanzo beans.
