Think you’re addicted to sweets? Well you might be right!

Many of the treats and processed foods we eat today are highly addictive and fall into a category called hyper palatable foods.

These hyper palatable foods are not natural foods. Instead they’re actually engineered to have you keep coming back for more! Think about the times you’ve been sitting in front of the TV with a bag of chips and being surprised when your hand hits the bottom scraping for crumbs. It’s also why it’s impossible to just have one scoop of ice cream. You can learn more about these foods here.

 

So it’s not your fault if you feel like you can never resist your favourite foods but you can make some small adjustments to make your favourite foods more healthy and that’s exactly what we’re going to do with this Salted Caramel Chickpea Flour cake!

Inflammation is a risk factor for more than thirty medical illnesses including cancer, diabetes, dementia and depression. 

The Western diet, which is the diet most of us eat these days, includes lots of meat, white flour, vegetable oils and sugar. And very little fruit, vegetables and whole grains.

The Western Diet is one that’s very pro-inflammatory which promotes inflammation in the brain and body. 

Added to this, the very foods that you turn to to manage stress are actually formulated to keep you hooked. These foods attack the very part of the brain responsible for regulating mood and stress – making your problem worse in the long term, while increasing the risk of serious illness.

In fact, the countries with the highest intake of sugar also have highest rates of depression

That’s why I’m allll about those healthy swaps like chickpea flour so that you can support your health goals while still satisfying your taste buds.

Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

These allergy-friendly cookies are made with gluten-free, grain-free, high protein chickpea flour, and they’re incredibly delicious!
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Servings 2

Ingredients
  

Chickpea Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar 
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups chickpea flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • Lavender sea salt (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl whisk together the melted and cooled coconut oil, and coconut sugar.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and mix well, then add in the chickpea flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until the batter looks uniform; it will be relatively thick and sticky. Warning: Do NOT taste the raw cookie dough, because chickpea flour tastes terribe before it's cooked.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips, then scoop the batter using a tablespoon or 1-ounce cookie scoop. Drop the dough onto the lined pan, spacing the cookies about 1 to 2 inches apart to allow for spreading. You can sprinkle the cookie dough with some flaky sea salt, if you like a sweet and salty flavor.
  • Bake at 350ºF for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cookies look lightly golden around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the pan completely, to let them firm up. They should be lightly crisp on the outside, and soft on the inside. (Let the bake longer, until they are more golden, if you prefer a crispier cookie.)
