My son asked me not to be the Mon bringing veggies or fruit to the party AGAIN!! So I made some healthy cookies. He has no idea they have chickpeas in them. The coconut sugar is organic and low on the glycemic index; it is rich in magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, b vitamins and amino acids. The coconut oil is a healthy fat and is antibacterial and antifungal. I hope your family likes them! Enjoy! XO

Ingredients:

¾ cup organic coconut sugar

¾ cup coconut oil or nut butter

1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water- sit for 5 minutes to thicken)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I like Mexican vanilla)

1 can organic chickpeas rinsed and drained

1-2 cups grain sweetened vegan chocolate chips

½ cup oatmeal

1 ½ cups flour of your choice (I like gluten free)

1-teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of sea salt

Optional Additions:

Nuts

Raisins

Goji berries

Dates

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper

In a large bowl or electric mixer, beat the sugar and coconut oil on medium speed until smooth. Add in the flax egg, vanilla and chickpeas. Mix on medium to high speed for about 5 minutes until the chickpeas are broken down and the mixture is smooth. (I mix the oats up in the food processor until they become flour because my son doesn’t like them whole. You can use them either way.) Mix the oats, flour, baking soda and salt together and add to the chickpea mixture. Beat for several more minutes until fully incorporated. Add the chocolate chips and any other delights and mix well.

Drop the dough by tablespoonful onto the baking sheet and press down with 2 fingers or a fork to flatten. Bake until the cookies are golden brown and just set about 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I like to keep them in the freezer for a cookie emergency!! Enjoy! XO
