Sugar-free, macro-friendly, super chocolatey and delicious!
There is one thing I simply refuse to give up–– CHOCOLATE. Who says we can’t fix our sweet tooth without busting our diets? If given the choice between being chocolate-free for the rest of my life or spending a year as a mute, y’all know that choice would be easy (chocolate, duh!). This recipe is 100% sugar-free, less than 100cals/cookie, and made from ingredients probably already found in your pantry! Sure to satisfy any fellow sugar lover’s sweet tooth craving….
- 1 can of chickpeas (15oz), drained and rinsed
- 3/4c oats
- 3/4c natural peanut butter
- 2tb unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/3c milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
- 3/4c sugar-free maple syrup (may sub honey, or light agave)
- 1/2c chocolate chips (optional- I did not use in my recipe, but it couldn’t hurt!)
Preheat your oven to 350º F. In a large food processor, blend chickpeas, oats and cocoa powder until combined. Add in the peanut butter, milk and maple syrup, one at a time, until everything is well combined. Empty dough in a large bowl and scrape sides of food processor to get all the dough out. Fold in chocolate chips!
Grease your cookie sheet. With a large spoon, make cookie balls with the dough and place on cookie sheet evenly spread. Should yield about 18 cookies!
Cook for 12 minutes, or until a knife comes out of the cookie clean! I like my cookies a little underdone and gooey. Let cookies cool, serve with cold milk and enjoy!
