Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans) - or a 15oz can rinsed and drained
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup + 2 T natural peanut butter  (I made my own Almond-nut butter-doesn't have to be peanuts)
18-25 drops of SweetLeaf stevia vanilla - (add more if you like it sweeter)
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup Hersheys sugar-free chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and pulse until very smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into balls. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet.
Bake for about 10-15 minutes.
I got about 15 cookies.
s/c per cookie:  c/8g - f/2g - s/.05g

Please do not let the beans in this recipe turn you away.  I promise you cannot even taste them in here.

These are good and chewy!

Enjoy!

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
