I love chickpeas, they're such a versatile food to add into your cooking and baking - they're a wonderful source of protein and fibre with is a fantastic combination! It helps you to stay fuller for longer, slows the spike in blood blood sugar and keeps your energy levels stable.

That's why I love adding them into my baking whenever I can! I love enjoying eating something sweet while knowing I'm adding in more amazing nutrients into my body and keeping my energy levels in top form (something I definitely need as a mum!). I also love giving these to Koa as a nutrient dense snack to tie him over until his next meal time.

*These are also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free!
