    These were actually pretty good. I didn't have almond butter so I used peanut butter and I substituted vanilla extract for the almond extract. They were a bit soft but very chocolatey. Super easy to make and hard to believe there's garbanzo beans and no eggs or flour. Didn't tell anyone at home about the secret ingredient or they wouldn't eat them.  -  09 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
