      They did come out pretty good, Megan. My husband wouldn’t quit eating them because he thought, due to the chickpeas, they were good for you. They ARE high in fiber but be careful of the sugar. Take care.

          I have GOT to try this recipe! If for no other reason than the fact that you’re using GARBANZO BEANS in a dessert! I’m gluten intolerant, so I’m always looking for unique ways to re-make old favorites, but this one has to be the most creative I’ve seen yet.
