I have to admit that I wasn’t too keen on making these cookies when I first saw the recipe on this website. How is it at all possible for chickpeas to be appetizing in a cookie?
I then began loving the possibility of finding another tasty, healthy cookie that contained no flour or sugar. And after reading so many positive comments about how good the cookies are, I decided to give them a try.
I have to say that I was surprised when I tasted the cookie! I could not taste the chickpeas at all. I found them delightfully good. There’s no guilt when eating these!
I have a few quick tips:
- These ARE healthy cookies. Don’t expect them to taste like the ones your mom bakes on Christmas morning. 😉 If you want to eat sweets that are good for you, this is one great way to do that.
- Using a food processor to blend these is essential! It’s possible that a really high speed blender would work. The cookies taste much better when the ingredients are thoroughly blended without a chunk of chickpea anywhere. This is the food processor that I use.
- Make these without telling your kids that they have a ton of chickpeas in them. That can kind of mess with their mind and affect their taste buds. 😉
