I Love Dessert

I know I haven't been blogging too long, but I'm sure you've figured out over the course of the last month that I love dessert. I love cupcakes, cookies, brownies, ice cream...all of that goodness!  And I love it vegan. 
The WinnerCupcakes
The NewbiePeanut Butter Cookies
I found this recipe for Peanut Butter Cookies @ "My Whole Food Life" website.  I was a bit reluctant, but even more so intrigued by the ingredients. 
Below lists what these cookies are made of.  Don't run away when you see the ingredients, give them a chance!  I've eaten 6 of these cookies so far (one after a run!) and they are great!  I think I should have baked them a few minutes longer (12ish minutes) - mine were just a bit on the raw side.
1 ¼ cups chickpeas
2 tsp vanilla
½ cup + 2 T natural peanut butter
¼ cup honey
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup chocolate chips

If you'd rather avoid honey (I have it occassionally) then I would recommend brown rice syrup.  It's a great sweeter without the negative effects of white sugar.  Some vegans are ok with honey.  I have it once in a while.  Whatever works best for you!
Let me be super clear on this - You cannot taste the beans in this recipe.  All you taste is peanut butter deliciousness with chocolate chipes.  I swear! 
My husband stole some the chocolate chips prior (I did too of course) and my puppy got some love as well.  Afterall, this week is all about the love.
What's your favorite dessert?
