Preheat the oven to 350F. Then make your chia eggs. In a small bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of chia seeds with 6 tablespoons of water. Set aside.
In a food processor blend the dates until they make a dough texture. Then add the garbanzo beans and blend with the dates.
Add in the chia eggs and peanut butter to the mixture. Blend until everything is mixed together well. You might need to take a spatula and scrape down the sides and blend again.
Transfer the batter to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can make them like cookies or flatten dough to cut after baking.
Put in the oven and bake for 25 minutes. When you take it out of the oven, allow it to cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting or touching. It needs to firm up.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in an air tight container. They can be stored in the freezer for even longer.
