Chocolate-coconut chickpea cookies

Soft, nutrient dense balls of chocolate goodness. Gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.

You may not like the initial idea of chickpea cookies, but please trust me when I say they do not taste like hummus. 😉 These soft, nutrient dense balls of chocolate goodness are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free and perfect for a run-out-the-door breakfast, afternoon snack or healthy dessert.

 

Chickpeas are a great baking alternative to flour as they have minimal flavour, are gluten free and provide you with added nutritional benefits. Chickpeas are a vegetarian source of protein and contain high amounts of fibre, which helps sweep clean your digestive tract, regulate your bowel motions and help control your blood glucose levels.

 

Tahini is a a rich source of calcium, iron and magnesium, which are essential minerals necessary for correct functioning of all body systems. Tahini is another vegetarian source of protein and contains B vitamins, which are fundamental for energy production, cognition and stable moods to name just a few.

 

Ceremony powders are blended with super foods, each with an array of medicinal properties to support your health and wellbeing.

 

These cookies are quick and simple to make, requiring only a few ingredients.

 

I hope you enjoy. x
