Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Squares with Sea Salt (GF, vegan, no sugar added!)

Because of various friends and family members being gluten-free, I’m always on the lookout for decent recipes that don’t use flour.  I saw the post for this one, and it looked absolutely amazing, even though the main ingredient was just chickpeas!  It reminds me of the black bean Brownies that I made a few months ago.
These squares, though, were so simple to make, and absolutely delicious!  Combine a can of chickpeas, some peanut butter, and few other ingredients in a food processor

Add some chocolate chips, sprinkle with sea salt and bake!  I found that it needed to bake for at least the maximum amount of time (25 minutes)  or even longer – the centre of mine was still quite soft.

But it tasted great, and we all loved it! Best of all, it was healthy!  It didn’t matter if I ate one or two (or three) pieces at a time!

Head over to Ambitious Kitchen for the original recipe.  She called them “Blondies” but our kids thought they tasted more like cookies, so we call them Cookie Squares.

I live in Hamilton, Ontario, and love my city. I'm a Netflixer, choral music geek, bookworm, inventor of recipes (I take Artistic Licence on EVERYTHING that I make), wife of one, mother of two, and owner of a neurotic Schnauzer. I respect people who respect others. I love good food that's well done, but my favourite lunch is KD & hotdogs. With ketchup. I'm addicted to Clearance Shopping. I will ALWAYS get the product that I want at the price that I want, eventually.
