- blend the chickpeas, almond milk & apple sauce in a food processor until a paste-like substance forms. pour this into a medium size bowl.

- in a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (protein powder, sweetener / Purecane, oat flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg). once whisked together, pour wet mixture into the bowl with the dry! blend well.
- using an ice cream scoop OR regular table spoon, take 2-3 inch clumps of dough, roll them into a ball shape, and drop them on the baking tray.
