To a food processor, first add the wet ingredients. These are the beans, peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. Blend
Rinse the chickpeas from the brine, sparing some of the brine for blending.
Next add the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, and dash of salt. Blend everything together until you have a
thick and creamy consistency. Add some of the chickpea brine if the mixture does not come together well. You can
add up to 3 tbsp.
