By adding the chick peas and the walnuts you use less butter and it makes for a yummy protein cookie. The kids won't even know.
Preheat oven 180C
In a large bowl beat sugar and butter until smooth.
Add vanilla essence and egg and beat until mixed well.
Add chick peas, chocolate chips, walnuts, flour, oats, baking powder and sea salt.
Mix until all is combined.
Drop the dough by the teaspoon onto the greased baking tray, spacing the cookies (they don't spread). Press with a fork to slightly flatten.
Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow to cool and hide from the family as they will be eaten in one sitting if you leave them on the bench.
