These are gluten free and dairy free! Which makes them a perfect choice when we get together with my family on Sundays, since we have gluten and dairy allergies in the mix. They are super moist delicious treats made from garbanzo beans (chick peas). I know it sounds a little crazy, but they are really good! When my husband came home today I offered him some that I had stored in a container - the whole container was empty in 5 minutes flat!!
*Update the rest of these in a separate container were missing before I even woke up! Geesh! And then when he arrived home from work he literally checked the oven to see if there were any more. I will definitely be making these again and soon.
2 cans garbanzo beans drained and rinsed
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup gluten-free oats
1 tbsp vanilla
2 cups brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips
In a food processor start with the garbanzo beans. Pulse a couple of times to break them up. Add the almond butter and oats. Pulse a few times to incorporate. Open and use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides if necessary. Add the eggs, vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pulse a couple of times again. Dump the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Use a rubber spatula to mix further if necessary, then mix in chocolate chips. Coat a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour in the batter and smooth. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes. Cool before cutting into squares and serving.
Make sure you have extra of these ingredients on hand because you are going to want to make more of these right away :)
