Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy summer everyone! Today I’ll be sharing a recipe for a healthier chocolate chip cookie. No, they aren’t going to taste like that classic cookie, but instead, you get a more wholesome flavor from the nutritive ingredients. Garbanzo beans are the secret component to these cookies. Believe me, you won’t be able to tell there are beans in your cookies. Garbanzo beans are full of healthful benefits. They provide protein and fiber to help keep our blood sugar stabilized and are a good source of carbohydrates. These cookies would make a great pre or post workout snack. Chia seeds are another healthful component. They provide a great source of omega-3 fatty acids along with fiber, which keeps us full longer and our digestive systems in balance. These cookies are free of gluten and dairy, making them a great alternative for people with special dietary needs.

 

Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ingredients:

¾ cup gluten free oat flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 tablespoons cashew meal
¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup coconut sugar
½ cup canned garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
¼ cup coconut oil, softened
1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

To make:

Preheat oven to 325º F. Add gluten free oats to a food processor and blend until you have a coarse meal. Transfer to a large bowl and add coconut flour, cashew meal, coconut flakes, chia seeds, salt, and baking soda. Next, add garbanzo beans to the food processor along with vanilla extract and coconut oil. (If you need to soften your coconut oil, place in a ceramic bowl and set in the oven for a minute or so.) Blend until you get a smooth consistency. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add coconut sugar and blend. Scape down sides once again and add egg and blend. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix well to combine. Fold in chocolate chips. Because the coconut oil was softened, the batter may seem runny. Place in fridge for about 5-7 minutes while you prep baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop cookies into 2 tablespoon size balls. Once placed on the baking sheet, press down gently to flatten each cookie. I use a smooth spatula for this. Gluten free baking is an art and you will learn that some cookie recipes just don’t react the same as normal cookies do. Recipe makes 12 cookies. Enjoy :)
