Banana Chickpea Cookies (Gluten-Free, High-Fiber)

Print

These banana chickpea cookies are a great low-carb cookie option that also carry protein and fiber in their nutritional profile, enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

A dessert predominately composed of chickpeas may seem strange, but when mixed with the healthy fats found in peanut butter and the natural sweetness of banana, these creamy beans -- themselves loaded with protein, fiber and B vitamins -- make for a tender and nutrient-dense cookie. Even with a few carob chips in each bite, each cookie is just over 100 calories with only 4 grams of fat, plus 3 grams fiber, 4 grams protein, and nearly 10% of your daily folate needs.

Notes: Some canned beans contain upwards of 600 mg of sodium per 1/2-cup -- roughly 1/4 of the daily recommended limit for those without hypertension/high blood pressure! Cut down on some of this sodium by always rinsing and draining canned beans.
