If so, I would love to hear how they turned out and if you liked them or not.
I got this cook book a while back and I finally got around to making a recipe from the book.
I have been craving chocolate so I thought the Chocolate Chip Cookies would be a great one to try. My sister made them earlier in the week and said they were good.
I was pleasantly surprised with the results. They actually tasted REALLY good and no one in my house could tell what the healthy secret ingredient was... chic peas!!!!!!
Here's the recipe in case you want to give it a try.
Nonstick cooking spray
1 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
3/4 cup trans-fat free soft tub margarine spread ( I just use regular butter)
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 (15 - ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
2 Cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
3/4 cups raisins (optional)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar and margarine with a wooden spoon or on medium speed until smooth. Beat in the egg whites and vanilla, then the chickpeas and chocolate chips. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, and salt, walnuts and raisins (if wanted,) and mix on a low speed until a thing dough forms.
Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Press gently with a fork to flatten. Bake until the cookies are golden brown and just set, 11 to 13 mintues; do not overbake. Transfer to a rack to cool.
