Throw some chickpeas in your cookie recipe next time. This recipe has actually been around for a while. I got it from Jessica Seinfeld’s cook book on pureed vegetables in everyday cooking and baking. If you notice the recipe calls for egg whites, omitting the yolks. This is a great way to cut down on unwanted cholesterol. Then adding chickpeas is the best part of this recipe, adding fiber and protein. Hmmm! Yes Please!
