Makes 2 dozen cookies


  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 7 1/2 oz (half of a 15-oz can) chickpeas

  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine chickpeas and eggnog in a food processor; blend until smooth. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl along with the chickpea-eggnog puree and mix well.

Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Roll batter into 1-inch balls and flatten on baking sheet about 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until cookies start to lightly brown. Remove from oven and cool before serving.
