In a food processor, blend:
- 1-1/2 cups chickpeas
- 6 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1/4 cup peanut butter (the recipe suggested natural, unsweetened, but choosy moms choose Jiff, so that's what I used)
- 3 tablespoons oats
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
Once it's blended, fold in 1/3 cup chocolate chips.
Serve with fresh fruit!
I blend mine for quite awhile, and it still has a slightly gritty texture from the chickpeas. But the chocolate chips and fruit make it seem less so. Also, I think 1/4 cup peanut butter adds a bit too much pb flavor, so I'm going to cut it back slightly next time. (And maybe add a few more chocolate chips.)
And no, I haven't told the peeps they are eating beans.
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing ... Keep It Real.
