This is my adaptation of a recipe I found in Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar by: Moskowitz and Romero.
This dessert recipe is not only delicious, but really high in protein. Peanuts are already a good provider and I added to the content by using garbanzo bean flour. This flour adds only a slight nuttiness to the flavor and is great for desserts. As a bonus, this flour is gluten free for anyone out there suffering that allergy. Top one of these off with a drizzle of my delicious chocolate sauce and enjoy.
