OT: Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ladies- This is what we had today at Outside the Box and they were GOOD for you and TASTY TOO!

Adapted from a recipe book to suit our taste: YUMMO! (we didn’t have slow cooked oats the day we made them so we used 2 packages of maple& brown sugar instant oatmeal and used less brown sugar- adapt to suit your  needs!)
