Chocolate Chip Cookies!

We have been eating pretty healthy around our house lately, but today I had a craving for chocolate chip cookies.  I love the recipe for chocolate chip cookies from Jessica Seinfeld's book Deceptively Delicious.  They are supposed to be healthy for you so I don't mind one bit making them.  (Shhh, don't tell, they have chickpeas in them!)

I had a mini-meltdown while trying to make these.  I accidentally put a whole egg in when I was supposed to put in egg whites...it just kind of slipped right out of the shell.  Next, I realized I didn't have any vanilla...so I added some peppermint extract.  Vanilla is just for flavor, right?  To top it off, I totally could not find the baking soda.  I know we have baking soda.  I kind of remembered running out of vanilla, but not baking soda.  It was nowhere to be found.  Online they said I could sub two times as much baking powder.  Thank goodness for the Internet.  
They actually taste good!  I like the freshness of the peppermint, although I have never had peppermint chocolate chip cookies.  They have a cake-ish texture which I kind of like.  We'll see how Jordan likes them!

These cookies look so good, I am still eating my currant muffins, I wonder if you could substitute currants for choc chips? chocolate chips have cholesterol.
