Ceremony Coconut Chickpea Cookies
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.
