Recipe Notes

*If using dried chickpeas, start with abut 2/3 cup dried. Starting with dried chickpeas will take much more time.

*To make the cookies smooth, consider removing the skin of each chickpea; it’s tedious but will make a bit of a difference.

*Does not matter which type of peanut butter used.

*Dates do not have to be soaked first unless completely dry, they should have some flex to them.

*Store in a container or bag in fridge or freezer- do not store on the counter.
