Not only is this Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookie Slice absolutely delicious, but it’s also kind of healthy. It contains no egg or flour, and is packed full of protein thanks to the chickpeas being the main ingredient. It gets it’s sweetness from maple syrup (the real stuff, not that fake syrup), although you could instead try honey or agave syrup if you prefer.
The slice is super simple to make. Just put put all of the ingredients, aside from the chocolate chip, into a food processor and process until you have a well combined mixture. Next, fold through the chocolate chips and pour the whole lot into a lined slice tin. I topped my slice with a few extra chocolate chips for decoration, but this is totally optional. Bake for around 40 minutes, or until the slice is cooked through. Then let sit in the tin until cool, slice and serve.
