Gooey choc peanut butter cookies
Who doesn’t love cookies? These gooey choc peanut butter cookies are made with besan (chickpea) flour! We love cooking with besan flour as it gives a lightness to recipes, with just the right amount of moistness. These cookies are gentle on the gut because they are refined sugar free, dairy, egg and gluten free. The peanut butter, coconut oil and chocolate give it all the gooeyness you need from a cookie.

Besan flour is gluten free. 100g of besan flour gives you a massive 22g of protein. Making these cookies high in protein. Therefore they have a positive effect on our blood sugar levels.
Peanut butter is also high in protein. Some might say these cookies are the perfect afternoon snack!
Coconut sugar has a low GI, contains trace amounts of vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, zinc, calcium and iron. It is free from fructose and a sustainable sugar!
Chia seeds are a nutrient power house. They are high in protein, essential fatty acids and fibre. They make for the perfect egg replacer too.
