Vegan chickpeas freshmint cookies!

On my last expedition to the market with my sister ( you can watch it here) I bought a lot of fresh mint. Maybe too much. And even after using with salads, dishes, to make lemon iced tea ... I was left with many leaves and I didn't want them to go to waste. 
I used to really dislike the taste of mint, just like cinnamon, or pineapple for example (surely I was out of my mind!), but lately I've come to really enjoy putting it in everything. or almost. Talk about obsessive personality.

This time around I wanted to try something sweet, and quite naturally the association mint-chocolate came to my mind. 
And I fell upon this chickpeas cookies recipes. That was it. 

Ever since I became a vegan I've been fearless with food and recipes. Tell me you used broccoli to make a cake, I'd believe you and taste it without any apprehension. And I happen to love chickpeas. It seemed to me it was a perfect way to make interesting, easy, healthy cookies, using only a tablespoon of flour... And I was right!

All you need is :
1can of chickpeas (rinse them&peel them!)
2tablespoons of peanut butter
fresh mint-as much as you like-
2tablespoons of sugar or honey/agave syrup
1tablespoon of flour
chocolate - preferably a lot-
1teaspoon baking powder
a little bit of water!

Blend everything but the chocolate/mint and water! Add water as much is needed so that you're satisfied with the consistency(be careful to not add too much, I did and the consistency was a bit too... moist). Then chop the mint and chocolate, or add your chocolate chips!
Place in a pre heated oven (180°C) for about 10-12minutes!
And here you are! ready to eat!
