I’ve shared these cookies, over the years, to friends and casually on my Facebook page as I’ve made them for my children (ahem, myself too). And every single time I get comments or messages that say something like this, ” we couldn’t stop eating them…I CAN’T believe that these are made from chickpeas…we ate the whole cookie sheet of them right out of the oven!”
So hold your vegan eye rolls ’til you try these little babies. You might be convinced, at least for this recipe, that some cookie recipes (sans grains and traditional ingredients) that vegans rave over are, actually, raveable.
To make a single batch of these cookie bites, go ahead and gather these ingredients (substitute peanut butter or almond butter for sunflower seed butter if you prefer – 1:1 substitution)…
Once all of those delicious little bites are laid out on parchment paper, you’ll pop them in the oven at 350 degrees F for about 15minutes. Out of the oven each cookie bite is somewhat fragile until it cools a bit and sets. But if you’re like me, you won’t be able to wait. In my opinion, these bites need to cool (but only a bit) because eaten warm is definitely the way to go. Delicious. Comfort food. Protein packed. Kid-tested, approved and devoured.
