Day 29 – Eat Dessert First

We’ve recently gotten into making super healthy cookies and brownies and sharing them with people around us. As a result, we’ve had lots of requests for the recipes, so here they are….

Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies

  • Recipe here
  • If you’re reading the instructions, you don’t HAVE to soak the dates. Just blend them with water to form a paste. We omit the salt and the chocolate chips and opt instead to add crushed REALLY dark vegan chocolate to the top. We also add about 2 Tsp Unsweetened Cocoa to the mix for fun.  Best part? You can eat this cookie dough raw without worrying about a thing! It’s an awesome dip for apples and pretty similar to a cookie dough dip we used to make a lot.

Black Bean Brownies

  • Recipe here
  • We make this basically the same as the recipe. Maybe add a bit more cocoa. We’re working on a way to swap the almond flour with something less expensive, though it’s really not that bad. We usually have to bake them nearly an hour. Make a note on the dates: Don’t skimp or you might taste the spinach! If you can avoid the dates that look like cardboard, that’s awesome.

Go ahead. Eat the whole batch!*

 

 

 

 

*Well, maybe not the WHOLE batch. They’re good for you, but still aren’t quite calorie free with all those almonds. However, if you’re going to eat an entire tray of brownies, let them be this tray.
