You can now make these awesome cookies nut free for school! Here’s how:
- Drain and thoroughly rinse a 400g can of chickpeas under running water.
- Using a stick blender or food processor blitz half the chickpeas into a smooth paste (use the other half in dinner or a salad). This will make approximately 1/2 cup of chickpea paste.
- Replace the peanut butter with the chickpea paste and continue with the recipe. If the cookie mix is stickier with the chickpea paste just dollop on the baking tray using a spoon.
