Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

Tried these...looking for possible recipes for my students to try that are gluten free. With no eggs or butter, this one would also be okay for a strict vegan diet. (You could use carob chips.) They taste...okay. Hoping to find well-rounded recipe options, not just desserts, but something like this may get more students to try it out. :) They're very dense, almost doughy. I could try simply baking them a little longer, or fiddling with the recipe. I don't do much gluten-free (or vegan) baking...

1 ¼ C canned chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry
2 tps vanilla
½ C + 2 Tbls peanut butter
¼ C honey
1 tsp baking powder
½ C chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Scrape sides to thoroughly process all ingredients. Stir in (or pulse in) chocolate chips. Form into 1
½ balls. Place on cookie tray lined with parchment paper. Press balls into 2" cookie rounds. Bake for about 10 minutes.
