Cleanse or no cleanse I will always find a way to make and eat cookies. These cookies were awesome (yes I said WERE). But please be forewarned that they’re not too sweet as I am not really allowed to have sugar. You may want to add additional sugar and chocolate if that is what you’re looking for. These are just a healthy version of cookies. Great for kids, and people on cleanses…hehe!

Please check out the Purple Bird Blog, which is where I originally got the idea for my black bean cookies which also inspired these!
CHICKPEA ALMOND COCONUT COOKIES
Makes 48 small cookies
2 CUPS Dry Shredded Coconut
2 (15 oz) Cans of Chickpeas
1/2 CUP Almond Butter (or peanut butter)
3 TBSP Coconut Flour (Any flour)
2 TBSP Agave (or Maple Syrup)
1 TBSP Vanilla Powder (or Extract)
2 1/2 TSP Krisda (Powdered Stevia) or you could use a Liquid Stevia or 1/2 CUP Sugar
3-5 TBSP Coconut Milk (Any milk of choice)
1/2 CUP -3/4 CUP Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat oven to 375 Degrees. Rinse and drain your beans. Place all ingredients in food processor 1 at a time, except Chocolate chips. I would place in an ingredient blend for 15-60 seconds and continue, scraping the sides occasionally with a spatula. Once all ingredients are blended, place them in a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips. Use a spoon or scoop to drop your batter on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. These cookies do not bake down, so choose your exact desired size and shape. I scoop them all on to the cookie sheets and then flatten them with a spoon. (Make sure you do not mistake parchment paper for wax paper- black smoke WILL come out of your oven). Bake 13-15 minutes.
REMEMBER: I tailored this recipe so that I could have it on my cleanse. These cookies are not super sweet, and I put chocolate chips only in half of them.
