Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

You must get your hands on this pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe.

I mean, who doesn’t love pumpkin-everything this time of year?! Add a few chocolate chips into the mix and there’s no stopping me with these cookies.

You’ll never guess what this cookie is made from…garbanzo beans. Weird, right?

You won’t even know there are beans in this vegan cookie, I promise. 

There’s also protein powder mixed into the batter. You can use whichever product you already own, but I used an unflavored and unsweetened variety. Just keep in mind that the flavor of your protein powder could impact the taste of the final product, for better or for worse.

Like most of my recipes, pulling this one together is fairly simple. Throw the ingredients to the food processor until it’s all mixed up. There’s your batter!

Mix in the chocolate chips after the batter is mixed together. I used mini dark chocolate chips that are dairy free. 

Because of the nutritional profile of this cookie, you can also eat two of them as an on-the-go breakfast with a glass of milk or cup of yogurt.
