Cranberry and White Chocolate Valentine Cookies

I often make these chickpea cookies for the kids with mini chocolate chips. I place the extra cookies into a container and keep them in the freezer for school snacks for the week. We decided to dress these cookies for Valentine’s Day, and the vote is that these are better than the “plain” chocolate chip ones.

Valentine Chickpea Cookies

  • 3 cups chickpeas (cook your own and freeze the rest for a later use – like another round of cookies!)
  • 1 1/4 cup all-natural nut butter (we prefer almond or peanut)
  • 1/2 cup honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Place chickpeas into a food processor and process until crumb-like. Add in nut butter, honey, vanilla, powder, and cinnamon and mix until it forms a sticky dough. Place into a mixing bowl and then fold in cranberries and chips. Form into 1.5-2″ balls and place onto a cookie sheet. Slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake 10 min. Makes 15-20.
