    YUM! You can't taste the chickpeas at all but the nutrition is in there --- everyone in my family asked for more! :) - 12/26/09

    Hmm....this recipe has really caught my attention. Will try these tonight. Will break up the chickpeas though.

    I will rate these soon.

    These are good, but I modified slightly:
    Grind up chickpeas before adding (2 year old doesn't detect)
    Use Light brown sugar
    Use 1.5 (not 2) cups choc chips

    I have to say I've made these before and was not a fan. Taking a bite and getting a chickpea was not pleasant. :o( I will say that they would be really good without the chickpeas. (defeats the purpose though lol) I won't make them again.
