There's nothing better than a fresh warm cookie straight out the oven, even better when you know the ingredients are of the purest form, no added saturated or processed ingredients, complete wholesome nutrition straight from the source! 

I've been playing around with chickpeas in every aspect of cooking, and this recipe is probably my favourite! The perfect snack cooked or if you're like me love eating the dough, that perfectly alright too! 

I'll bake half the mix and keep the remainder in the fridge to either bake later through the week, or turn into bliss balls when I'm needing to cater to my sweet tooth in a hurry! The perfect lunch box filler, or afternoon treat.
