Some of you may or may not be aware, but I happen to be allergic to everything. Like EVERYTHING. Gluten, dairy, eggs, honey, just to name a few. It drives me nuts. But because of this I quite regularly find interesting out there recipes which I alter to suit my needs. Now this one is a little odd, and when I say they are chick pea cookies, don’t stop reading! They may sound bizzar, but they are some of the tastiest things out. I promise. Now, I by no means claim this recipe as my own, I found it on the Internet somewhere and changed it a bit to suit me. But they are so good they just have to be shared. If I ever find it again, I’ll post the original link up on here too 🙂 so how do I make them you may ask? Well ill tell you. First, you need these ingredients:
To start off, pre-heat your oven to 175 degrees-ish, then get yourself a big mixing bowl. Open your can of chickpeas, give them a good rinse then chuck them in the bowl. Next I use an actual table spoon and put in two massive spoonfuls of peanut butter. Then four of the golden syrup, then two cap fulls of vanilla essence and lastly one small table spoon of baking powder. It’s going to look like a big old goopy mess, just like this…
So next you want to get your blender/stick blender/food processor/anything that will a obliterate food and turn this mixture into a paste. I personally use one of these babies
Once your done with the obliterating, it should look like this, nice and smooth. You want to get out all the lumps.
Next Get your dairy free choc chips and mix them into the batter with a normal spoon. I use a whole 150g packet because I think you can never have too much chocolate. Now you want to have a tray lined with baking paper ready for your batter. Because this stuff is so sticky, you need to have wet hands in order to roll the batter into a ball. Keep in mind that they won’t rise at all, so what ever shape/size you make them is pretty much how they will stay. Cook them in the oven for ten minutes, then pull them out for nomming!
Now here is the important part – you MUST eat these hot/warm. Don’t go eating them cold then telling me how gross they are. It’s the warmness that makes them so delicious, and they are definitely microwave friendly.
So there you have it, one of my favourite gluten/dairy/egg/honey free snack!these things hardly last a day in my house as the BF and BFF just love them too 🙂
