Choc chip chickpea cookies 

If chickpea cookies are a new concept to you, read on: they are a lot tastier than they sound. 

I personally love the texture of these cookies and they are gluten free, full of protein and good fats. They are also refinned sugar free- yee har! 

You can make then nut free by replacing the peaunut butter with tahini (sesame seed butter)
