Chocolate Macaroon Chick Pea Cookies


Another recipe for chickpea cookies. Sorry. I can't help it. I get on a kick, eat them like crazy and then never want to look at them again.

These little bad boys are good. And good for you as far as cookies go.

And full of the clean and good stuff. No gluten. No dairy. No refined sugar.

Try them and see for yourself.

I'm currently trying to fight my fierce sugar cravings and these are helping me put up at bit of a fight against that darn sugar devil.

Have a great day, a great week and good luck in your own battles. Whatever they may be!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Keywords: bake dessert candida-diet friendly gluten-free low-carb sugar-free vegan chia seeds chickpeas chocolate coconut cookie
Ingredients (16 - 18 cookies)
  • 1 can chickpeas (~500 ml) – rinsed and drained, organic when possible
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp raw almond butter
  • 2 Tbsp organic coconut oil
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 3 tbsp 100% cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened medium coconut
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp ground black chia with 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp Truvia (more if you don't need to watch sugar as closely as me)
  • 6 drops flavored Stevia (I used liquid hazelnut cream flavored)
  • 12 mega chunk enjoy life dairy free cc (optional)
Instructions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Add chia seeds to warm water and let stand for 5 minutes for Chia to gel.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chunks) in food processor. If you don't have one you can use a blender but it will require lots of manual stopping and scraping down the sides.
Pulse until fully blended and chickpeas are fully pureed. It should have a smooth texture.
Drop onto parchment paper in about 2 Tbsp portions. I formed mine into balls and then slightly flattened the top with the back of a fork. I also stuck one chocolate chunk on top of each one. A bit of a cheat and not completely Candida diet friendly. But if it keeps me out of the "real" cookies its a cheat I can live with.
Bake for 18 - 22 minutes.
