Chickpeas: not just for hummus!

Who can resist a chewy, delicious chocolate chip cookie? Not me! And we don’t need to anymore, thanks to my friend and subscriber Karen Cattell (who always has the best cookie recipes!)

March is National Nutrition Month, and to celebrate I’ll be posting my favourite healthy recipes for you to enjoy.

This one has no flour, no gluten and no white sugar — plus it’s completely vegan if you use maple syrup. I followed the recipe precisely and the result was so delicious, I had to restrain myself from eating all the batter. Thanks for the recipe Karen!
