Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bites

I love finding healthy alternatives to sugar laden desserts. This easy to make treat is made with only six ingredients and is just right for an afternoon tea or to celebrate a life event.

This recipe doesn’t contain flour or eggs. The surprise ingredient is chick peas, which is ingenious! I promise, you cannot taste the them. Use only natural peanut butter. I purchased a jar at my local supermarket that had peanuts and sea salt as its only ingredients. I mixed the peanut butter well before using. Select dark chocolate chips, that are at least 60% cacao, for the least amount of sugar and the most health benefits. Raw locally produced honey provides the natural sweetening.

I used two spoons to drop the dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. And then hand shaped the dough into balls. By the time I had washed up the food processor, the cookie bites were ready to come out of the oven. 

These bites are wonderfully gooey, with a richly satisfying taste. Best of all, the recipe makes approximately 15 bites, which is perfect. Too much of a good thing, even with a healthy twist, is a temptation. I intend to savor these treats occasionally, with no guilt and no adverse effects. 

Enjoy!
