Chocolate Chickpea Chippers

The addition of chickpeas give this cookie a healthy dose of protein.  Good to take along as a healthy snack for any of your outdoor summer activities.

Chocolate Chickpea Chippers

1            cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1            cup whole wheat flour
2            tablespoons ground flaxseeds
1/2         teaspoon baking soda
1/8         teaspoon sea salt
1/2         cup packed light brown sugar
1/2         cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4         cup low-sodium canned chickpeas, mashed
1            egg replacer (I used the box kind)
1            teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2         cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease two baking sheets.

Combine oats, flour, flaxseeds, baking soda and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

In a large bowl, beat together sugar and applesauce until smooth.  Add mashed chickpeas, egg replacer and vanilla; combine.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in small batches, mixing thoroughly.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Using rounded tablespoons , drop cookies on to greased baking sheets.  Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool 1-2 minutes then transfer cookies to wire racks.
