Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 can chickpeas (drain and rinse but reserve the liquid)

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

Place the oats in a food processor and process for about 30 seconds. 
Add chickpeas and pulse several times. 
Add remaining ingredients and process until well mixed and a ball starts to form. 
Line a 9x9 baking pan with parchment paper. 
Scoop the dough into the middle of the pan. It will be pretty sticky.
