Sweet Delicious Dessert!!!
I had no clue that cookies made out of green peas could taste so good. This time I wanted to make a simple and quick dessert and my whole focus was my daughter.
We have been gorging on these peanut butter banana amaranth cookies for a while now. Occasionally, we also indulge in these carrot sweet potato almond cookies too.
She loves cookies, her day starts with cookies. HMMmmm. Kids know how to get their way out. 🙂
But as a health conscious mom I have to take charge of her diet. Usually she eats most of the vegetables, but lately, she has been avoiding green peas for some reason. Therefore, I got a chance to create Nutrient Rich Green Peas Cookies.
In my effort to feed healthy food to my daughter and yet satisfy her cravings my main ingredient was decided, green peas.
I kept wondering the other ingredients to be mixed for a while because I wanted my daughter to like the cookies and yet she should not figure out that it’s made out of green peas. HMM.
Also I had my vegetarian and vegan friends in mind who like their desserts to be egg free. So I came up with this healthy green peas cookies idea.
These came out really good and my family loved them. Especially, my daughter. Therefore, I discovered a way to feed her green veggies in a tastier and attractive way.
Hence, I am so excited to share this green peas cookies recipe with you.
Ingredients for easy green peas cookies

You must have have noticed that I used only 7 ingredients for this recipe which i am sure you already have in you kitchen.
green peas – I used frozen green peas which is the easiest to find.
dates – this is the only sweetener I used here and its healthy as well.
silken tofu – this acts like an egg replacer in this cookie recipe.
almond flour – this forms a nice batter and adds nutty flavor along with nutrition to this vegan cookie recipe.
raw almonds – must use this to enhance its presentation.

How to make Nutrient Rich Green Peas Cookies
Firstly, I combined green peas and dates in a food processor and processed it as smooth as possible.
Secondly, I spooned it out in a large mixing bowl. Then, I folded it in mashed tofu to form a batter.
Next, I added almond flour, baking powder and salt to it and mixed it well.
Thereafter, I divided the dough batter into 15 parts. Then, i shaped them into round flat cookies between my palms with a dent in the middle.
Then, I placed them on the prepared cookie sheet.
Afterwards, I topped each of them with 1 raw almond and baked in the middle rack of the preheated oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
Once done, I took it and let them cool down a bit.
We enjoyed heartily and they were all gone the same day.
These were delicious and satisfying along with being guilt free.
My daughter enjoys these with milk and trust me thy tastes sooo good.
- Make sure to mix tofu into peas mixture with hands so its well combined.
- After adding almond flour it is important to mix the batter with your hands for the best results.
These taste best when served the same day. However, refrigerate the leftovers for 2-3 days. Oven toast them for 3 minutes. Let them cool and serve.
Yes! They are flourless, oil free and refined sugar free. Therefore, can be enjoyed frequently.
I used frozen green peas which is the easiest to find. They are softer and sweeter too.

Nutrient Rich Green Peas Cookies
- 1 cup frozen green peas (defrost and bring it room temperature)
- 1/2 cup pitted dates
- 1/4 cup mashed silken tofu
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 15 raw almonds (to garnish)
- Preheat oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit and prepare a cookie sheet with a liner.
- In a food processor/grinder combine peas and dates and grind as smooth as possible.
- In a mixing bowl spoon out the peas mix and add tofu and mix well with a spoon.
- Then add almond flour, salt and baking powder and mix well with your hand. Very soft dough like texture will be formed.
- Take a tablespoonful of the dough between palms and form a round shape and gently flatten in the middle. Try to even out the flat round cookies as much as possible.
- Put the cookies on the cookie sheet and garnish with raw almonds. (one almond on each cookie and press very gently so they stick together).
- Put the cookie sheet in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until slightly brown in color. Take it out of the oven and let the cookies cool down for a while and serve.
- I would highly recommend adding almonds for garnishing because it adds to the flavor of the cookies and gives it a crunchy texture.
- ½ cup dates equals to 5-6 pieces.
- The above recipe measurements yields 15 cookies and the serving is 1 cookie per person.
- Can be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
I’m going to have to give these a try. My oldest son has an egg allergy.. and he doesn’t eat nearly healthy enough. Not to mention my own personal cookie addiction. You’ve hit every mark with me! Thanks so much for sharing! – Kim @ knockitoffcraft.com
I wish I had found out about this before Chinese New Year. Had made a batch of cookies that required 250g of butter and so much sugar! Now I know what to make the next time round 🙂 Btw, if I can’t find the dates is there an alternative I can use? Thank you.
If dates are not available you may use maple syrup or brown sugar. 🙂
Great and original idea! I love it, will definitely be trying these out on my children tomorrow 🙂
I need to share this with my vegan mother-in-law.
great idea, thanks for sharing!!
You used fresh/ frozen green peas correct? Also any alternatives to using tofu?
I used frozen green peas in the recipe. Fresh green peas can also be used. If you use frozen green peas then defrost it before using in the recipe. If you are okay with eggs then use 1 egg in the recipe the effect would be the same. Hope this helps and you enjoy these cookies.
