Cookies Made out of Chickpeas?

Sorry, but tonight is another quick, cardless post. I just got off from a 5 1/2 hour shift, and I have homework to do. Tomorrow is the last day before fall break, and I am going home with my roommate to Nashville. I am excited, but I don't know when the next time I can post will be. I will try to do it while I'm at her house, but there are no promises. Anyway, here is a scrumptious recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies made out of chickpeas. Like my chocolate chick cookies, they are the perfect snack or end of the day treat. I like to make up a whole batch or two and freeze them for whenever I want a cookie throughout the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately I am out right now, but they sound like a good idea to make for my next night shift.... Enjoy!

Add the eggs, baking powder, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, flour, oil, sugar, and applesauce to the blender. Blend until everything is well incorporated. Stir in the additional 1 cup of oatmeal and the raisins. Scoop out tablespoonfuls of the dough onto a oiled or nonstick cookie sheet. Press the balls flat with a fork.
