Chocolate Chip (shhh Chickpea) Cookies

(This was adapted from Texanerin Baking) Although I am one smart cookie (ba duh dump) 😉 I would have never thought of this myself, BUT I just changed a few things, and I totally fooled the Lil Divas.

Well, I am a living testament that is a myth. People toss the watermelon when it gets to the crunchy white part of the watermelon, but this is probably the most nutritious part of the fruit. The entire watermelon from flesh to seed is edible and delicious. I prefer the rind over the pink flesh, but I am not your typical person.
