Chickpea Cookies

July 14, 2020

Who doesn't love a good, gooey, chewy cookie?

A few weeks back I decided to go refined sugar free and have loved getting creative in the kitchen and transforming all my favourite sweet treats into something a little healthier but without losing the enjoyment of eating them.

Not only are these cookies low in refined sugar (if you skip the chocolate chips!) but they're also a great source of protein & healthy fats and make a wonderful, healthy, nutritious snack.

These cookies are dairy free (using dairy free chocolate chips), egg free and soy free. To make these gluten-free, make sure you use gluten free oats and swap the plain flour for gluten-free or buckwheat flour.

They're also a great addition to your repertoire if you're weaning your bubba like myself as all the ingredients are baby friendly. Once again, I just skipped adding in the chocolate chips.

*The macros are calculated with the chocolate chips included however, if you wanted to skip adding these then take this into account if you're interested in the macros.

**You could always swap the chocolate chips for another addition if you wanted to leave them out. Chopped up dried fruit or even caramelised nuts would make a great alternative.
