Green Peas, calcium rich Tofu and protein packed Almond Flour sweetened with healthy Dates and baked into Vegan Cookies.
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. 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, but 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 Vegan NUTRIENT RICH GREEN PEAS COOKIES.
When I combined all the ingredients and shaped the batter into round cookies I was actually nervous whether my daughter would accept this veggie dessert. So many questions crossed my mind but I still went ahead with the recipe. When the cookies were baked and I took them out of the oven I loved the aroma all around the kitchen. YUMMY!!!
As soon as my daughter came back from school and asked for a cookie for her snack I offered her Nutrient Rich Green Peas Cookies. She looked at it for couple of minutes as if she was inspecting it. 🙂 I think she knew that her mommy was trying to feed her something healthy. Hahahaha. 🙂
She slowly and gradually with a frown took first bite of her cookie. Then her frown went away and she took another bite. It was amazing to see her changing expressions. I wish I could video record that moment. 🙂 . After finishing her first cookie she gave me a smile and asked for another cookie. I could not stop smiling myself. I was so relieved that she liked it.
After she finished her second cookie she surprised me. GUESS WHAT!!!
She asked for a third Nutrient Rich Green Peas Cookies and happily wanted to drink a glass of milk with it. WOW. Mission Successful. I was super happy and now I bake regularly these wonderful, healthy and Vegan Cookies!! 🙂
